    Default Passenger footwell flooding

    Forgive me for being a bit thick here, after a bout of heavy rain earlier today, i've found my passenger footwell flooded. A quick search in the forum points to a drain under the pollen filter that may be blocked. Can someone point me in the right direction please, where is this pollen filter and drain located and how do I get to it?

    Your advice is appreciated

    Lift the bonnet, then there is a flap in the scuttle panel (the thing the wiper arms are in) Lift the flap (passenger side) and you will see the pollen filter and the drain in front of it. HTH

    Lift the bonnet and look where the wipers are. On the right hand side you can see like a cut out in the black trim and that is where the pollen filter is.
    Pull off the weather strip from that area and lift up the piece of black trim wher the cut-outs are and there you go. Good time to check your pollen filter while there as it should be white. If its black and full of crud you may aswel change as they are about a fiver on Ebay deliverd.

    I found my passenger side footwell carpet was wet a couple of days ago (the mat froze to the carpet - it's January) and just came across this and went out to have a look. The drain under my pollen filter was full of thick, black muck so I washed it out and will see if it's the end of the wet carpet (once it dries out) and the damp smell I noticed the other week. Thanks a lot.

    It's annoying it's this time of year as it's taking ages to dry, but I'm using towels on it to soak up the water. There isn't a lot, it's more damp than anything, and if it WAS the drain being blocked that caused it, hopefully I caught it in time and it won't get any worse. I'm visiting my grandparents tomorrow and they have a carpet cleaner so I might have a go with that.

    Having read a couple of other threads on this, I've now been back outside and found the rear passenger footwell carpet is also wet.

    If you cleared the drain hole your problems should be over and this water is what is left over. As said before get it dried and try to get underneath the carpet as the underlay has a rubber top and the moisture gets underneath and sits there and starts to stink and rot.
    My dads Omega did exactly the same so I cleard the block and un did everthing possible and used the Vax and managed to get under the carpet with the Vax head, plus I had the engine running with the heater on hot and on the floor position as I did it.
    Goodluck
