Water In Footwells


Recommended Posts

Interesting. Looking forward to your feedback. I think there are a couple of rubber flaps behind the rear bumper which allow for airflow through the car. If one/both of these is jammed open (or missing), perhaps water is getting in that way.

You were right Dave! They took of the rear bumper, and flaps were leaking! But also the rubber seal on both sides by the footwells was deteriotated a bit and they found water going through, so wasn't just one problem, was a few! :) just hoping those were the only things and its solved now! Paid £50, and quite happy, good lads in that garage. They said they vacumed out like 5 liters of water from the sound insulation mats and carpets, crazy..
