    Default wet Passenger side Footwell

    Whilst giving the inside of my Vec C a clean last night i came across a wet carpet in the passenger side foot well. Remembering previous posts on here i checked the Pollen filter which was damp. Just infront of the pollen filter there was a puddle of water. I pushed my fingers through a rubber sleeved hole and removed all the leaves and crud. The water soon disappeared.
    My question, 'is this all i need to do, or is there other things that could of caused this.' the carpet is wet but is there a drain in that area to remove any water if needs be.
    Thanks

    You have done all the right things, no drain in the foot well but keep an eye on that drain near the pollen filter. I would change the filter if it has been water logged.
    I also cut off the top of a lid from a spray can to fit in the flexi drain just to keep it open. hth .........

    I would check the Pollen Filter Mr Marky & replace if at all suspect this I think is worth a mention if you haven’t done it recently guys check that drain hole. Could save you an expensive repair never mind the inconvenience.......
