Leak on '99 Spider

Hi Guys

I have a leak on my 99 spider, I believed it was through the windscreen but a new screen hasn't fixed it.

Lifting the plastic panels below the screen, the top of the heater fan is exposed, I've removed this fan as the water has destroyed it - the water actually drips down the windscreen and comes through the fan - my local garage feels there should be a cover over this fan of some sort, that is a cover between the plastic panels that the windscreen wipers come through and the top of the fan. The rain is litrally pouring in and this seems to have started after either a new screen was fitted or the wiper motor was replaced.

Can anybody tell me what cover should be in place, as this leak has cost me about 2000 in electronics damage so far, and I am at my wits end?

Many Thanks

Sorry, I'm not sure what panel you've lifted?

ditto.. eek.. if you need a pic or something let me know.. you wanna get that sorted before winter kicks in, must be driving you mad !

is it dripping down the pillars or the middle of the screen? surely replacing the windscreen would have shown the bit where it's leaking?
