    9 times out of 10 it's the drain just in front of the windscreen...

    Open the bonnet and make sure it's completely clear of crud (leaves etc)

    backed the car up on a small set of ramps, front of car pointing down hill. took the left side plastic facia off which is down at the foot well. (2 screws)
    lifted plastic that runs along the top of inside sill, careful wires behind it, lifted carpet and soaked approx 50mm of water up, then squeezed the front foam and rubber that fits to the bulk head in the passenger foot well. this is foam and holds water, and mopped up excess whilst squeezing. hope fully should start drying out now..
