    I noticed that my carpet beneath your feet wet watery precisely.
    As the car parks on the downhill doubt leak of precipitation, and the
    slope splilover in the area below the driver's legs.
    Where and how to find the place in the penetration of water into the cabin?
    Does anyone have similar experiences and how is it resolved?
    Thanks everyone for advice, experiences and suggestions!

    Probably heater matrix leaking, tricky job.

    I bypassed my 605svti heater then sold it at auction when winter came.

    Could be heater matrix, but might not be. I had a 205 that suffered
    from intermittent wet carpet in the drivers footwell. I didn't manage
    to find the reason for it before the car was written off after an
    accident, but I know it wasn't coolant.

  4. Might be clogged drains at either side of the windscreen wipers.... i
    now mine had after winter.

    With regard to your water leak. Do you have a sun roof. These have drains
    and they get blocked causing water to run inti the car, down behind the trim
    and into the footwell. Happened on a 405 we had.

    How's that new motor going Chris? We swapped our 306 in for a Honda CRV
    but the 406 MKI/MKII hybrid is still with us.

    the vauxhall corsa goes very well had it a year and got 23.000 miles on theclock just had service its diesel 1.3 turbo i can do 114miles on £10 diesel so its a little better than the pug 405 but i do miss it .>

    Haven't worked out consumption moneywise but we are getting 47mpg from the
    Pug. The CRV is a 2.2 diesel and only gives around 36mpg but it is a
    heavier vehicle so it's around the sort of consumption we expected. Very
    pleased with it though. It's great on long runs - armchair motoring,
    especially with the cruise control on.

    From the Corsa figure above at guessed 118p/lit thats 61MPG which is better
    than my P206hdi 1.4 which gets 57mpg mixed driving without too much effort.
    The mfg brochure figure is 65mpg which is unachievable in normal driving,
    Peugeot must have run their test car on unobtanium diesel, slick tyres at
    100psi, average 40mph, ultra thin oils etc,etc !

    I think most manufacturer's projected figures are, shall we say, optimistic.

    £1.189 at Asda when I left UK last week but around 1.10 Euro here in
    France which is about 94p.
    Getting 50mpg from my 2.0 TDCI pug/ford engined Cmax at motorway speeds.
    More than happy!

    Of course, but not that much, indeed. On soft drive I twice got 4.1L/100
    (57MPG) out of my 206 (road/motorway) when it's given around 61.2-54.7 in
    mfg figures.

    On long motorway drives I get a bit above 47 MPG (sticking on the legal max
    speed, 130KPH here), when it's given for 52 @120KPH (from memory). Not that
    far, then. And I'm not really sluggish :)

    My 306 ended up with a good inch or two of water in the driver's footwell, I managed to figure where it came from.
    If you lift the bonnet, then trace around the scuttle tray you should notice a sort of channel that's designed to run water down to the outside of the car, mine was full of leaves and debris, follow this channel all the way down into the engine bay, mine ended up sort of above the front drivers side wheel arch, where there was at least a pint of water sat. I poked my finger and a screwdriver down in the puddle and also reached up from under the wheel arch and located a small (10mmish) hole that was blocked with decomposed leaf matter. Gave that a wiggle and the water drained out onto the road. Hope this helps
