Water leak in Brera

Hi I purchased a Brera in June and the car has now developed a water leak under the drivers footwell. The leak is dripping from a wiring loom as far as I can see from the bulkhead under the wiper blades . All the drainaways are clear and i am unsure where else to look. If anyone could help me with this I would be grateful.

Are you sure the bulkhead drain is clear? When mine first occurred I needed to get right down in the drain before I got a satisfying gurgle and a pool of water under the car. Now I use a long radiator brush to clear the muck every 6 months. I'm not absolutely sure where the water gets inside but it probably happens at the scuttle or lower down. When I had the screen replaced I got the fitter to add a couple of blobs of sealant to the obvious clip holes which may have cured it. If it occurs further down the drain pipe perhaps just keeping it from forming a head of water is enough.
