Suggested Solution

you need to replace the weather strips on both doors costing about 19 each as these are common on the corsas for leaking hope this helps

Suggested Solution

My Daughter recently bought a 2002 corsa and had the same problem. The carpet and undercarpet were soaking wet in the drivers footwell. We took it back to the garage three times before they agreed to strip the car down until they found the problem. The mechanic (who was really patient and just as puzzled as us)removed the carpet to dry then stripped the car. When he did this he found that there was a bolt hole on the bulkhead(?) which did not have a bolt in place. The mechanic used a water jet to spray water around this hole and found that the water trickled down into the car and through a gap behind the brake pedal and into the footwell of the car (they actually seen the water do this). The mechanic filled the bolt hole and sealed the bolt he had put in place. They put the car back together and SUCCESS! We have had the car back for about 5 weeks now and not one drop of water has come through the car. I know this may sound extreme but the mechanic had tried everything he could think of before resorting to this. He even looked at corsa car manuals and could not find any reference to this bolt hole so did'nt know it even existed until he stripped the car down I'm glad he did it though as the car is now completely dry and what was even better was he never charged for all of his work. Hope this helps you. Good luck and hope this helps
