Hi All,

Unfortunately I've discovered a pool of water at drivers side footwell today. Cry

I've checked for the headliner and it appears dry and ok. I noticed the drivers door trim was wet particularly around the speaker grill.

If anyone has any suggestions on what to check, will greatly appreciate the help.
Thanks
Bob

P.S @Admin Please let me know whats wrong before nuking the thread. Happy to correct anything but wasn't sure what it was and guessed it might have been the title. Apologies and hopefully got it right this time.

few areas i would check

1 Check the firewall that all the grommets are seated correctly and no split (ecu loom, aircon pipes etc) 
2 Aircon - check the drain pipe is still attached (might need to remove glove box)
3 check sun roof drains, if these are blocked water can run down inside the A pillar 
4 check the drains on the sill (sunroof drain pips feed into sill then outside)
5 check door seals and roof gutter.

Great resource too.
I did an initial check and I have a strong suspicion it is the front right sunroof drain thats blocked causing it to leak down that front A pillar.

Anyone know how do you clear it out? Confused

I've used compressed air in the past to clear them,
