    Window seal will be favorite, have a look under the rear shelf to see if it's coming from the quarter light.

    Thumbs up

    Had the same put in front passenger well checked for where it was coming from but no joy. Put it down to the Mrs not closing the door completely and leaving a gap for the rain to get in!!! Will keep an eye on it though

    get the hosepipe out.... run it over the car while you have someone inside to see where it's coming in..

    I had the same on my 06 reg car.

    The following should help.

    1) Lift the bonnet

    2) Remove the windcreen wiper arms and the plastic scuttle panel, this should take only a few minutes.

    3) On both sides of the car on the flat part of the bulkhead beneath the plastic scuttle, there are two drainage holes that go down behind the engine onto the floor.

    4) Check these are not blocked with leaves or other rubbish, simply push your fingers through and if they are blocked, simply push it through to the floor.

    What tends to happen if these are blocked, water will build up on the bulkhead and leak into the car through the pollen filter. It then goes doen the carpet and tends to settle on the floor at the back of the front seats.

    It may not solve your problem, but it is worth checking.

    I was told to keep a check on the air filter area above the passenger footwell. Access from under the bonnet. This area can gather leaf's and other cra p infront of the filter and then the water will not drain away and get's into the footwell.

    About the rear i'd check the door seal's.
    Happy hunting
