Wet footwell, soaking

Post by Cliftonpuma »

Hello. I had this problem on the drivers side. I drove the car without carpet (helped dry out) to see where the water was coming from. It came from the corner of the scuttle right up inside the footwell. Poking the area with a screwdriver I then loaded it with silicone sealant and let it dry - success! The start of the problem solving is to take out the carpet and felt. You will then get a better idea of the issues. Potential issues? Leaking heater matrix, holes in the floor and leaky scuttle. Hope this helps.

Don't forget the wiring grommet in the passenger side.
