    Default wet carpets

    I have read all the other threads on here ref wet carpets but am still none the wiser. I have a 08 vectra SRI. Recently I noticed the carpet behind the drivers seat was soaked. I have checked the area around the pollen filter, in the scuttle tray and all seems clean. The rear window and door seals also seem in good condition. Spare wheel space is dry as is the compartment behind rear light cluster. Is there anything i am missing or am i gonna have to bite the bullet and take it to VX to check it over. When i pressed down on the carpet it feels like it is soaked in the floor pan. Any help is appreciated

    I cleared the extra drain like was advised above and yeah it was blocked so I have removed both from the scuttle tray. Today though I have noticed that the rear footwell drivers side is swimming. I have checked the door and window seals and they seem fine. Also drivers footwell is wet but nothing compared to the rear one. Am all out of ideas now so any help is appreciated. Dont know if this is just water left over from blocked scuttle tray or if there is a major leak somewhere. Water is clear so am ruling out a dodgy heater matrix

    have a read of post 7

    but as you say it maybe water left over from previous leak

    once completely dry try pouring water over door seals and see if it lets any water in
