    confused Water in passanger footwell and it not the suttle tray.???

    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............

    you might need to remove the actual plastic scuttle clean all the area around the bottom of the windscreen & re seal it

    they have probably never been undone before, the panel is not comming out without removing the wiper arms so just put gentle force or an extension bar over the spanner/socket
