Trying to diagnose where the leak is coming from in my 147, both foot wells are damp. Definitely not coming from the scuttle drain hole or the door cards/seals. I'm led to believe that these holes behind the wheel arches should have a rubber bung? Neither of my wheel arches have a bung and it appears water is free to go wherever it wants!

Had a look on Eper and can't see a part listed, maybe try Autolusso or a breaker, be easy to pop a couple out of an old car.

Yes there should be a bung there, not the first time I have seen this. I have seen them when they have been pushed in. Any 147 will has the right size bung, stick it in with silicon though

Where is this exactly located and can I access it without removing the wheel and/or lifting the car?

Ive been having a leak since I got my 147, and still havent found a solution.

Its none of the usual stuff (scuttle drains, heater matrix, air condition, door card/seals, sunroof, windscreen)

Im pretty sure its something like a bung or cover missing, but sadly I don't know where to check, and most body shops either refuse to work on it, or need to keep the car for more than a week which is not possible.
