    Default Driver footwell wet

    Noticed the other day that the drivers foowell has quite abit of water there. Looked on here and checked everything that people have said. Door and window seals, Drain by the pollen filter. Dried the carpet and came out the next day and it was wet through again.
    Anyone got anymore ideas to what it could be?
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    theres another drain by the wiper linkage

    if you look were the pollen filter drain is along to the left you will see another drain that will be blocked up

    this pours into the drivers footwell then

    i use a knitting needle to clear the drain to get through the grid

    I have removed both drain rubbers now. What's the best way to dry out the carpet as its like a swimming pool. I haven't got a wet vac any ideas would be great.
    Thank you

    Heater matrix is behind black cover next to foot rest at drivers footwell. Remove panel next to footrest. Black cover is held by 2/3 screws. If the black cover are wet then its heater matrix seal is lost. But most likely its just need tightening the fittings.

    Check ur weather strips. Close door. Have wife or girlfriend sit inside watch door as u pour water over door seals.
