    Is the pollen filter clear? I find old clogged pollen filters hold moisture and never really dry out.

    Is the carpet on the passenger side wet, the pollen filter housing is a **** poor design & the gasket on the back does deteriorate allowing water in.

    Yes it is wet well more damp. I've lifted it up and luckily its not damp underneath. So maybe caught in time. So do you think the gasket thingy has gone. Also is there a part number for this? Thankyou
