Water ingress into passenger foot wells

Post by RomseyQashQaiGuy » Tue Jan 14, 2020 8:24 pm

Nov 2014 1.6 diesel with 12.5k miles - ie low mileage

Took the car from my parents as they no longer drive.

They kept it garaged for the most part and were never aware of any water ingress issues

The water volume is quite significant and seams to gather if the roads are wet - I don't think it's about the car not being garaged now, it appears to be coming off the road 😔

The water is relatively clear/clean - I'll try to attached an image of the water extracted by a Vax

Any advice greatfully accepted.

Regards
Guy

It could be coming from a leaky heater matrix.
There’s also a chance that perished rubber seals around the passenger door or windscreen are the guilty party.

If it's from the heater it will feel greasy. More likely a door seal. Get someone to pour water over the front of the roof & windscreen area, sit inside and look for leaks.

If it has a moveable sun roof, it could be the drain channels blocked by leaves, especially with the winds we've had.

Any joy I'm having same issue as well. Have limited time to look into what's wrong as had a baby a few weeks ago. My car also ended up with mould but not being driven in a while could have caused that along with being damp
