    That's what I thought as well.

    Sills seem ok, no water inside as far as I can tell.

    The scuttle box had about an inch of water in the bottom. Took the drain hose off and of course it was all blocked up with gunk. It was also flattened in one section so...

    Water coming in from somewhere

    Recently noticed water in both footwells of my Williams which has never happened before.

    Are the door seals the usual culprits or could it be coming in from somewhere else?

    Is there some kind of trick to this? I see two empty holes on the ends of the spoiler so I thought it would just pull off. It ain't moving though and I don't want to break it. :?
