Suggested Solution

if it has a sunroof check all drains open poor water in should come out of wheel arches.
also wiper box has 2 drains which often clog with leaves check the drains,
if door trims have been removed make sure plastic sheet is not damaged.

i have had someone check the door seals and they are fine, the water isnt definatly getting in through the door or bonnet compartment as the top of the footwell and side of carpets are bone dry.
someone mentioned a bung or something underneather and the wheelspray getting in??
Out of ideas

Usually caused by the bulkhead water drains getting clogged up and needing cleared .Water cant get away and enters car .This from Corsa forum explains it ,

You have two water drains below the windshield SCUTTLE BOARD, one on the left and one on the right side.
REMEMBER MY CAR IS A LEFT-STEERING CAR!, so in the right side I have the battery, on your car, you should have the windshield washer fluid tank, thats the only difference.
What you have to do is to clean up both water drains, they get obstructed with dry leaves for exampe, is a very common problem.
I dont know if you will have to remove the washer tank, but, try to introduce a wire (a thik one, about 2-3mm) to ckeck if they are obstructed. Afterwords, throw a little of water, those drains should leak at the bottom of the car.

It wont be necessary to remove the SCUTTLE BOARD, but you can make a better and full cleaning if you remove them. Check below them, there is also a drain which goes from side to side of the car, clean that one also, and if you remove them, why not clean the pollen filter?
Hope that helps, im 99% sure the problem you have is because of those drains!
Good luck pal

Try that first , but if still having problems get back to forum for other possible causes.

Posts 7,905 At the right hand side of the windscreen ( from the front of the car ) there is a black box under the scuttle panel. Normally the screw at the top back is missing, once thats done up no more leaks.

Posts 138 gents i have fixed this proble.
if this is happening to you check the following.
remove the glove box(two torque screws). get someone to throw some water on the windscreen and check if the weater drips by the wiring.
If this happens check all the screws on the electrical box under the bonnet. Its the little black box on the right hand side of the engine to the right of the battery.
Mine was missing screws on the back causing the lid not to be sealed properly. you may have to loosen the scuttle plate!!!!!!
Good luck

I had the same problem with my 2005 corsa. The water was on the drivers footwell (lightly wet) & behind the drivers seat (where it was a lot worse). The reason it is lighter at the front is because there is an extra layer of carpet at the front which absorbed more water. There were two possible places that the water was coming ito the car:The windscreen or the seal around the foot pedals had worn.
For mine it was the seal around the foot pedal. The mechanic had to take out most of the engine to find the route of the leak. He fixed it and dried out the car. Cost me 460 euro.(mostly for the labour, the sealant only cost 13 euro)but had to be done because if left unfixed the car will begin to rust underneath. I also had a lot of condensation & took ages to heat up the car which is resolved since I got the leak fixed

Water leaking into divers footwell an behind drivers seat. Checked the drains an all clear. There is no water by the pedals or on the sides of the carpet. Could the water be coming in where the 2heater hoses enter thru the bulkhead? Checked door panel an took door apart no water in there.
