    Default water coming into car

    This is my first thread so I hope it's in the correct forum.
    The passenger footwell and rear near side footwell has water saturating the carpets after the rains we've had of late. I cant seem to find where this water is coming from...any suggestions.
    Im not sure if its connected but after the snow we had at the end of last year the plastic engine cover on the underside of the car was damaged and removed by my local garage. It was not replaced as I was told it serves no function!
    Any suggestions, thanks

    Hi guys. I did as suggested, unblocked the plug and changed the filter but still getting some water in. Same area, passenger and rear footwell. Any other ideas what I should be looking for?

    I've been told it should make no difference but since the plastic underside cover was removed after being damaged I've had this problem. Could water be coming from underneath?

    Thanks

    its a pain of a job , but glove box will have to come out and front seat , and get some one to pull water on an area for a while and try to pull back carpet as well and get a torch and see if you can spot any water coming through ,
    another thing have you got a sunroof ??
