    Ł15 philips dust buster thing did the job for me , i also removed the grommets from the drain channels and made even more slits in them . I also removed the pollen filter housing and re sealed it . Those drain hole grommets are rubish and clog up really easy , i dont really see the point of them to be honest

    The sunroof has 4 drains one in each corner, maybe they are what is to blame.

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.

    So I bought a Black and Decker Dustbuster but I think I need to dry it out a bit more first.

    When I leave the fan heater on in the car, should I wind the windows down so that the damp air can escape?

    hmm, i think if you wound the windows down all the warmth would just blow away?

    Perhaps try for a few hours with the windows up and see how it goes? or perhaps open one of the rear windows a crack?

    Be careful with the heater too, dont want you setting the car on fire! :P

    I'd be inclined to remove all the trim and dry it out of the car, might be difficult but if a job is worth doing its worth doing properly, also with all the trim out you can see where the water is coming in. Otherwise all this may be for nothing.

    I got the carpet out today with a little help from Stanley (knife).

    Now I will let it dry out and I can concentrate on getting the inside of the car bone dry and, oh yeah, finding the damn leak. I will put the scuttle back together and then hose the car down and see if any water leaks in. If not, we can assume it was the scuttle tray.

    I checked the front ones, which are by one of the hinges (lower one I think) for the front doors, and they seem fine.

    I believe the rear ones involve a trip into the boot and/or removing the rear bumper... can anybody clarify?
