Hi
I am wondering if someone has any idea where this water leak can come from.
There is some kind of material between carpet (not rubber carpet-it is dry) and metal floor which reduces noises or something.That thing is always wet. It's not soaking wet. Just wet.Always. In garage they checked windscreen seal and door seal. Well, they didnt find anything. One thing that is strange is that clutch pedal is slightly wet and covered in rust. Can it be that water drips slowely under carpet? Because the rubber carpet is dry. If yes , how does the water apper on that cluthc pedal? What can be the source of this leak?
Anyone encounterd this problem?[/size][/font][/size]

What model focus have you got? I have a 2009 model and its currently at dealership being looked at for exactly the same reason, insulation is wet like a sponge on drivers side.
Will advise once the cause is known!

Might be different but when I had this problem it turned out to be the pollen filter/Pollen filter cover (sits under the windscreen wipers) that was letting water in and directing it down under the carpet in the passenger footwell. Replaced the filter and cover myself with a total cost of about 20 quid.

Have you got a sun roof?
My son had this problem of water in his passenger footwell. It turned out to be a blocked drain from the sun roof.
Water is drained from the front two corners of the sunroof down the front pillars. I used an old bike brake cable to clear the drain and it sorted the problem.

how much water are we talking about not enough to soak the carpet i assume from what youve said so if it was the filter seal then it will just be starting to go and wont be very obvious that its leaking at all.its a simple fix so i would just do it then dry out the car and see what hapopens if after that it stays dry then problem solved for the sake of a few quid and half an hours time.if it still gets wet then you know that the filter isnt the issue

I think I have found the cause of my water problem. I took a plastc cover that is placed inside, and goes from top of the driver door to dashboard/windscreen. And then when a friend of mine was pouring water on on the top of windscreen small stream,actaully drops could be seen in one place, close to corner of windscree/dashboard. Those dropes continued to flow somewhere, somehow down to under the floor carpet, I guess. Although ,I could not seem them on floor but the chance is big this is the source of wet carpet. It turned out that the windscreen was not original and had been glued unproffesionally. I am going to run a longer test of pouring water to see that water down on floor. And will be getting a quote on re-glueinng the windscreen.
