- where art thou?

I think I may have found the answer to this old question, as I had the same problem.
My mechanic (thinks) he has cured the problem.
The leak seems to start underneath the front ventilation scuttle, at the foot of the windscreen. They took of the scuttle, and noticed rusting on clips etc, and a lot of debris that was causing run-off water to leak in to the ventilation system due to blocked drainage holes (and causing some visible mould in the process). This water was then running to the lowest point in the car - perhaps through some sort of box section on the floor plan, and ultimately soaking the seatbelt reel where it is bolted down.
So far, so good.
Sorry if my description makes no sense - I'm relaying info second hand!
