    Default Windscreen leaking??

    After last night's heavy rain, I've noticed this morning that a very small amount of water is getting in.
    It's down near the kick panel, driver's side.
    It's not vast amounts, but over time would get under the carpet.

    I don't think it's the bulkhead area, as I keep the drain rubbers clear.

    Could it be a leaking windscreen, or has anyone else found problems??

    Ian, my windscreen leaked down the passengerside as the seal had failed. The garage re-sealed it for me but not sure how much this should cost.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Would it be worth removing the plastic trim down the side of the screen to check?
    If so, does anyone know how the trims are removed?

    Don't know if you would see anything. I think the strips are clipped on but don't quote me on that! Maybe get on your back in the footwell with a torch and let the little ones loose with a hose?

    trims are just clipped on.....

    Ian. run a hose over the screen edges to see if it leaks through..if it does, then you can buy a screen sealer liquid...

    Not that recent, has been over 2 years


    How easy is it to remove the panel under the steering wheel / above pedals?
    It'll give me a better view of the problem.

    Well, removed all the trim earlier to see if I could locate the leak.








    Poured water over the edges of the screen.............no sign of it leaking

    Now where??
