Ment to say its a 18TD. The pollen filter? you mean the water is filling up in there ? and finding its way to the passenger footwell ?

Had the same problem on my old 2002 Focus. Some idiot had been messing around with the pollen filter and removed it, but had then failed to refit it properly and the panel under the windscreen wasn't sealed properly. Water then gets in and runs down into the heater blower and seeps through a little drain plug at the bottom of the blower housing. Check all round here, and around the pollen filter. It may need taking out again and sealing properly.

Hi,

I had the same problem, water getting into the passengers footwell. Fortunately, the problem raised after I replaced the pollen filter so I knew where to look. The problem was that the rubber between the pollen filter base and the car was deteriorated due to aging. I took off the filter base by removing the two nuts that fix it to the car and replaced the rubber with a new one. Up to now, the problem seems to be solved.
Additionally, I had another water leak ,but in this case the water came in from the footwell side. I found that this leak was originated in the upper windglass rubber. I put sealant in the rubber and it seems to have stopped.
Hope this helps.
