wet passenger and drivers footwells a3 1.8t - worried!
hi guys, first off thanks for this forum helped me out no end on every matter and saved me £ in the past, basically i got a 1.8t a3 8l 1999 always ran very well no issues since the last 2 weeks when its been raining a lot!
today i was hoovering it out and realised the passenger and drivers side footwells were wet, the passenger was soaking, also the front windscreen seems to be mistier than usual when i start it after its been sitting.
So after googled this problem and finding many issues on scuttle panels i kinda got a bit worried, took it out and took loads of mud and crap out from the sides, then fitted back with a huge gap in the middle that i can't get rid of, annoying.
I guess my main question is were are the main drainage holes on the scuttle panel, have i done enough to stop the flooding, cos i could not get clear access and also there is now large gaps on the sides and the middle were the scuttle panel fits and I'm seriously worried about damaging electrics. Also my boot has stopped working since and my pedals feel a bit stiff and the pollen filter is soaking. How can i dry the carpets inside and will anything else get damaged? Also is it worth silicon sealing or masking taping the scuttle panel were it meets the window, really don't want tape all over it but I'm very worried about the ECU and rust under the carpets...
Thanks for any help/experience
