Wet passenger footwell and banjaxed heater fan. Solved!

This may be of help to some.
Heavy rain leads to a wet footwell and now a dead fan motor.
I've searched this forum for answers.
I removed they scuttle pan checked for drain blockages, none!
Carefully cleaned the rubber seal on the bottom of the screen and carefully reinstalled with a little bit of Silicon sealant and there was still water comin through!
After climbing into the footwell and looking up through the hole where the fan goes with my daughter spraying the screen with water, I found the problem.
The water is leaking in around the passenger screen washer jet, a steady drip right onto the mesh grill on top of the fan housing....bingo!!
