After a heavy weekend of rain I have found a large puddle in my passenger footwell on monday?! I searched around to see where it could of came from but couldn't work it out? I have been told it could be where the window seal has came away from the windscreen? I can't see any obvious signs but I do have a convertible? My car is starting to smell damp and need to try and get it fixed before it rains again...

Suggested Solution

the problem is a blokage. remove both wiper arms then remove the plastic cover at bottom of windscreen. you can see the wiper mechanism infrot of you. at the back at the bottom you will see 2 long elongated holes. there will probabley be water in here. inside the holes are 2 plastic oval bungs. pull them out and clean them. the hole in the bung is not big enough so cut it bigger with scissors then replace them. i cleaned all surrounding areas then wax oiled it all then put it all back together again. problem solved.
