    Blocked drain under skuttle panel?

    Open bonnet and on the passenger side there is a flap lift it up and in front of the pollen filter there is a drain check this is not clogged with leaves.

    Door seals?
    Window seals?
    Could be after the extreme rain we have had.
    Try sitting in the car with a torch and get someone to hose the car in all areas you suspect may leak and try and replicate the leak.

    Let us know how you get on.

    I had this problem on various cars and in the main turned out to be the plastic film coming adrift at the bottom on the door panel. The film that is stuck to the door when you remove the door card. This plastic film deflects water away from travelling inside the car, but sometimes gets damaged and leaks.

    I had the same problem and it turned out to be what Gazza4 said, mine was covered in everything . Good clean out and it hasn't happened since.

    I've got the same problem on my Signum now.

    I'm gutted, but I'll have a look, although I don't exactly know what I'm looking for.

    Thanks for your help.

    I've found it I think: it looks like a vacuum cleaner crevice tool.

    It was full of leaves, gunge & water, which I have now cleared.

    I am now looking forward to some rain (for the 1st time in a month) to see if it has solved the problem.
