    Guys, just noticed a leak in the passenger footwell earlier. I think it's the first time it's happened but the rain hasn't probably helped. I just got it serviced last week & the garage told me they'd need to strip it to get to the bottom of the problem. The interior carpet & mat is drenched.
    Any ideas what I could do or what the problem may be??

    Check your pollen filter, it's under the scuttle panel on the passenger side.

    Also check underneath the wipers all along the underneath of the windscreen as leaves and debris get trapped under there and can cause overflow into the cabin.

    bulkhead drains will be blocked allowing the bulkhead to fill with rain and then overflow into the pollen filter. there's probably 2 in there, just poke them out with your finger
