Having a tad of bother with water coming into the passenger footwell and rear passenger side footwell. Not sure if it's coming in the passenger side and flooding to the back but boy is it wet! It's like a swimming pool back here.

Have changed the pollen filter to no avail, someone with a focus with similar problems suggested sealing up the scuttle panel that you remove to gain access to the pollen filter, might this do the trick?

I hear of course that it can be the sealant behind the door cards but this is unlikely because I don't think they have ever been removed (and I really couldn't be hassled removing the cards today lol)

if your sure its not from pollen filter then almost certainly door cards... :whistling:
before taking off door cards (not a difficult job) have a look at the door sill on pass side after its rained (or use a hose to simulate)...if theres water sitting on the sill then it'll be a tiny little hole in the sealant that holds the foam sound deadening to the door... water runs from sill into pass footwell and runs to the back(or maybe back is leaking too?). either way,you've probably had the leak for a while but it takes a little while for water to build up enough for you to notice...:smoking:

Just hadexactly the same, it was the door card water coming in from the speakers, the black sealant that hold the foam on the door is not around the bottom of the speakers and that is where the water comes in.

a pretty easy fix, took not more than half an hour ad that included makeing a cuppa!

My 2004 1.8LX had the same soaking wet passenger side footwells, but just a little black cloth tape over the 3 small drain holes underneath the passenger side windscreen wiper sorted the leak immediately. As bodges go this one is both extremely cheap, easy, and very effective. I'll get round to sorting the problem properly one of these days.

In the meantime happiness is most definitely a Ford Mondeo with dry carpets.

Mine is leaking drivers side rear seats. Took door card off and water is enyering from the ribber door seal itself.

Could this be a new seal required?
