The dreaded 159 puddle again
Hi, newbie seeking advice for water ingress into 2007 159 Q4 3.2 JTS.
Small amounts of clean water puddle beneath drivers seat, just to right of transmission tunnel and below central console. Spreads backwards to wet rear o/s passenger footwell, also causes internal condensation ++. Seems to happen whether raining or not.
Checked rear passenger door which was recently disturbed by a replacement window regulator, hence possible loss of membrane seal. Nope - survives the watering can test with no drips into the interior.
Cleared the drainholes inder the front windscreen scuttle usiing a coathanger. Water seems to drain satifactorily.
Changed the cabin/pollenfilter thanks to d-i-y advice form your estimable Forum. Now lots of clean air, but water still ingressing.
So now my attention is drawn to the central console. Is the airway to the rear passenger vents clogged (airflow seems limited)? Or is there perhaps a leaking aircon vent tube in that vicinity directly discharging into the footwell?
Puzzled, and not sure how to inspect or de-built the central console.
Anyone been down this particular road, or found a solution?
