    Hi all,

    Bascially I have a leak in drivers footwell near the foot "Rest" & Accelerator Area. i.e Front of Footwell.

    Now I do park on a hill overnight which I bet doesn't help.

    But still..... Now I was driving today in the "wet" and the footwell was pretty much soaked, flooded in my eyes.

    Has anyone had the same problem or any suggestions.

    The car is a 53 Plate. I also know about the pollen filter could this be the case.

    Any help is appreciated.

    I had a similar problem - a sopping wet patch in front of the clutch pedal.

    I also noticed this after driving in rain, but that must have been a coincidence, as when I took it to the dealers they diagnosed it as a leaking air con condensation pipe. It must have been the air con pipe, as it's never done it again since (dealers fixed it about 2 months ago).

    Mine seems to leak nearer the accel pedal. Only seems to leak in raing so I doubt aircon.

    They reckoned it was a door seal because they claimed in came in from door. They said the pollen filter wasn't the problem.

    I sold the car soon after.

    Could it be the pollen filter? Which side is it on the A3's.
