Water in rear floor well 206

    Water pools in the footwell behind the front seat after it rains. It seems to
    be entering at the bottom of the rear door near the centre, but I can't see
    how to prevent this. It comes in mostly on the passenger side when its parked
    with that side away from the kerb. Anyone else had this problem?

    Luckily the carpet seems to be backed with plastic so the water does not
    spread elsewhere, and is relatively easy to mop up, but is causing terrible
    misting up problems - or perhaps I have a leaky heater radiator as well!!

    This is a 3 year old X reg.

    If you take off the door trim, you can check the white membrane that
    covers the access holes into the door. Make sure there are no splits
    in it, and that it is properly stuck down around the edges. If not the
    best thing is to renew it.
    Shouldn't think it would be the heater matrix, as you would get it in
    the front footwells first. You could taste it and see if it is

    Do you have a sunroof? It'll have a drainage passage that runs from the roof
    down the side pillars and out at the bottom. I've heard that if this passage
    gets blocked water can end up in the car.

    Yes! Original thread is here: http://snipurl.com/3qwu

    Solution was to get the rear door seals replaced.

    Took the dealer (Palmers, St Albans) 3 goes to get it right

    Look for water on the door seal after rain (or a good hosing)

    Thanks Rob, and all. There are signs of it getting through the seal at the
    bottom of the door. At the moment I'm putting a dry towel down and replacing
    it every day if it rained. That is keeping it fairly dry but obviously only
    temporary till i can really loacate it. It's got to go for its clevis pin
    recall soon so maybe i'll get them to do it.

    No, it's got aircon instead.
