Been watching the forum for a while and finally got round to signing up. Had a problem recently with my car, it leaks.
Its a 97 5dr Astra, i recently had to change the pre-tensioner on the passengers seat and while the seat was out i decided to check where the wiring was for heated seats, i found it under the carpet insulation worrying close to a puddle. With the front interior (seats, carpet, some insulation) i've discoverd that it must be coming from somewhere central, as the insulation linning the bulkhead is dry on the left (Passengers) and right (drivers) sides on the edge of the vehicle.
Logic has driven me to conclude that it must be draining through from the pollen filter (which is bone dry) housing, and seeping down to where i imagine the heater vent central housing is, and going from there. I am going to try and remove the pollen filter housing over the weekend (car is covered for now), by removing the housing, clearing out the crap and resealing it.
My question is what do i use to seal it, and where do i get some from, if its silicone sealer will any ol' DIY sealer do, or would car-specific be a wiser choice.
Also if there are any other ideas in head as to where else i might check for a leak i would apreciate it.
