    Default water in passenger footwell (help)

    Well it happened went out to car this morning and theres a puddle in the passenger side footwell.

    Car hasn't moved in a couple of days so checked the scuttle panel and the plug was blocked .

    Unblocked it and cleared all the crap out of it, But what else should I be checking? should i just change my pollen filter anyway?

    any help would be great. hope my blower isn't kaputt.

    Change filter as its probably soaking, get as much water out and drive round with heaters on for footwell for a few days. Also check drain on drivers side too

    you might find that your heater will start to squeak i hope it does not

    make sure your heater settings all work

    normally the water damages the resistor pack in heater

    if you lose heater settings 1 2 3 your need a resistor pack or sometimes a new relay

    i hope you dont have these problems above
