I always keep a road map on the floor in rear passenger side foot well and when I went to use it the other day it was soaking wet. Lifter up the mats the the carpet is very damp. Obviosly I have a leak somewhere, how the hell do I go about locating the leak and fixing it??

Sounds like the heater matrix is f*cked

Check the heaters are working, if not and the windows steam up the heater matrix has gone, don't know what else it could be pal!

The heaters work fine, dont see how that relates to a damp rear foot well?? I the only way i can think of locating the leak would be to strip the carpet out the rear, take the rear seat out tand then run a hose over the car to see where the water is geting in?

Sorry, thought you meant the front passenger footwell I'm having a bit of a thick day! Matrix went on my old 306 and water used to piss onto the footwell from behind the glove box, don't know if it's the rear mate...

Well I took out the front and rear seats today and removed the carpet. The foam backed rubber matting under the carpet was absolutly soaked gave it a squeeze and the water pored out of it :shock: The front passenfer footwell was soaking as well. I now think thats where the water may be leaking from, possibly from somewhere around the washer bottle???
