    i had this when i strip the interior out of my old car, there is a couple of bungs under the drivers carpet, i just sealed them up with silicon sealent, or if its not that it could be leaking in through the doors, or worst case your heater matrix has a leak

    hi dave, mine has the same prob, posted below! i've searched door seals, bungs underneath, pollen filter. can't find the prob. it's off to the garage tues so if they find it i'll post, hopefully give you a pointer.

    ps my rubber strip at the bottom of the windscreen is lifting too, but don't think thats it.

    hey dave, just got the van back.

    they've been all over it and say the only thing they can determine where the leak is coming from is the plastic panel on the side, next to the door. they said it was wet on the inside all the way to the floor. the part just came off in their hand. they've sealed it up now so hopefully that will sort my water problems.

    good luck with your prob, hope this helps a bit.

    seems to have worked. this part is plastic, and it just came away in te mechanics hand. he's sealed it up as the panel inside was wet from here.
