    Do a search for scuttle drain and put your reading glasses on.

    It's coming in via the pollen filter, clean the drains out before you need a new heater.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    As said - drain in the scuttle tray blocked and the water comes in through the blower motor!

    this can cause the thermal fuse to blow - and also the blower motor to squeel!!..

    Possible but unlikely. But I guess we should ask if the windows and doors were open while it was raining.

    OP, if your not sure what to look for drop me a pm and I could pop over sometime and have a look with you.

    My GSi and Signum did this. The worst part was trying to get the water out of the carpet before it started to smell!
