    confused Water in passanger footwell and not the scuttle drain???????

    Please can someone help me. i have a Signum 53 plate and have alot of water in the passanger footwell and a little in drivers. When it rains, its as if somthing in the dashboard is filling up with water, because as you go around corners you can hear the water slushing side to side somwhere in the dashboard, then it starts falling out from behind glove box. Got the glove box out at the moment and all the left hand side of the passange footwell where the electrics are is soaked and carpet underneath is swimming. . I hve cleaned the scuttle try and even removed the rubber drain bungs just to stop it blocking so i know its not that.

    Hope someone can help me begining to lose the plot with the car.

    thanks............

    hi ive had this in my 3.2 vectra and found that the cover where the wipers are had two splits in it and where the pollen filter is is a chamber and was full of water so had to get a peice of hose to get the water out and so my passenger side front foot well was flodded as well as the back so check for splits in the plastic cover below the windscreen

    Thanks, had all the wipers off and the black plastic cover off. cleaned out all the scuttle tray and gone mad with the silicone around erverything. hoping this cures the problem if not im lost, think the next step is as DasArab says below windscreen seal, going to have a new windscreen fitted. just driving me around the bend everytime it rains listning to the water where ever it is splashing side to side when driving.
