After reading on here about the possible causes of my flooded footwell I decided to try fixing it and take the panel beneath the windscreen apart this weekend. Think that I may have sorted the major leak this way because it seems when my car had a new windscreen fitted the wonderful RAC windscreen bloke has decided he couldn’t be bothered to fix the black plastic heater hole cover in place and just chucked it back in loose [genius]. Rain was therefore just pishing in through there… Put it all back as it should go and after another night of Sheffield’s finest heavy rain the foootwell hasn’t flooded – hurrah…!!
Have also noticed though that some rain seems to be getting in on the passenger door, looks to me like it may be coming in through the mirror…? Anyone had this problem? You can clearly see a trail of water inside the door starting at the mirror, through the tweeter and then down the door card… Not a great deal coming in but while I’m in the mood I might as well try fixing it.
Car is parked in a narrow street and mirror has t be folded in, if that makes any difference…?
Any thoughts much appreciated before I start attacking the car with sealant…!!
