Additionally, I had a bit of a root around to see where the leak could be coming from. Its strange the carpets were bone dry a few days ago, yet today soaking wet. I don't think this water has been creeping in during light rain.
I removed the cover to the wiper mechanism/scuttle area and found the plastic "drain" tube on the drivers side was blocked with leaves etc. It would prob have allowed some water through but not the deluge we had last night.
I'm suspecting the drain had allowed a depth of water to build up in the scuttle area on the drivers side during the deluge and it got into areas not normally accessed by water.
I've now removed the plastic "funnel" from the scuttle area so it definitely isn't going to block up again!
I'll see how it goes over the next week and give it a good blast with a hose next weekend and see if I can see any leaks from inside. If I can see leaks I'll investigate further. If not, I'll seal up every nook and cranny I can see with black silicone and put it all back together and hope.
