After heavy wind, rain and snow on Sunday i found this on Monday morning.



It was bone dry in there on Saturday and the car has not been moved so it won't be coming though the air vents etc, i was thinking it could be the windscreen seal but it looks to be a fairly tight seal all the way round and it seams alot of water for one night of rain, the scuttle panel is solid with no holes too so i just can't think of anywhere else it could have come from. Does anyone else have any ideas?

Soggy! Not sure about it being the winscreen, as Ruby's was really bad, and didn't leak that much! Maybe it's the door seals?

I found out where it was coming from, it turned out it was because i'd removed the door check strap seal and the door switch when i was doing the A Panel and door step.
I tipped a watering can down the drivers side and found the water was running down the door frame, through the check strap and door switch holes, down the inside of the hinge panel and through a small gap in the seam in the corner of the floor pan.
Since refitting the seal and door switch she appears to be water tight.
