    Default Car leaking water..!?!?

    Hey so I don't know if any one has had this problem, but if anyone has or has any ideas for a fix please let me know, its doing my head in!!

    Car, KE70

    Pretty hard to answer if your not looking at the car, but it is leaking water down In the passenger foot well. When I was driving it everyday, whenever it rained It would get a fairly large puddle of water swooshing around in the passenger foot well, same when it rained but only heavy rain. Didn't really care much as I thought it was seals and what not.

    Now since than I have pretty much rebuilt the entire car, I have changed all door seals, grommets rubbers etc. new windscreen has been installed aswell.

    Now whenever it rains I go out and have a look and it certainly has got better, but hasn't stopped. If the rain is really heavy it will get pretty wet.

    how I have sat in there while its raining, got a mate to spray a hose on the car while I was inside, and can't bloody find how it's getting in !!! The car has no rust to my knowledge any where around the front passenger side of the car, well anywhere on the car really.

    Has this happened to you? Tell me how to fix it lol!!!


    cheers

    Have you removed the plastics that go inside your wheel arches?
    does it only happen after you have driven in the rain?
    If you open the front door you will probably see your front wheel if you dont have the plastics there which will pick up water when you are driving and send it through that gap and then into your footwell....
    Thats my theory anyways coz ive had the same problem.
    I found this website which kinda goes through making some replacements and i'll be giving that a go hopefully soon.
