    Water on Driver side floor

    So its been raining a lot around here recently and i noticed the windows had some condensation on them. Had a look around and noticed a large puddle under the driver side floor mat. Nothing around the edges of the footwell, no obvious drips. I dried it up but the next day when it rained again the water is back. Any ideas? Its just the driver side and it does not have a sunroof.

    Check under carpet below pedals, they have a habit of going there, also scuttle below windscreen.

    Rear quarters can leak and run down b-pillar also boot hinges and seams where boot frame meets b-pillar

    if it's stationary when it's leaking, as pointz said, rust behind the pedals - where the rear of the front inner arch meets the firewall tends to go.

    if it's driving when it's getting wet, there's another seam where the firewall meets the floorpan, that goes pretty easily too but the bitumen soundproofing covers it so you don't know until it's all fallen apart.

    you don't need to remove the seat to check the carpet, just remove the footrests, the lower trim that covers the electrics below the dash and the side trim to allow the carpet to move a bit.
