That's right. If no leak of hot water pipes and it has the same water level of radiator you should check front windshield's sealing.
I heard someone made claim this part as of assembly defect................... :D

My focus is a 2008 1.6 tdci, and I had same problem, wet drivers side footwell carpet. After over 2 weeks and 3 courtesy cars, it was a bulhead leak causing the problem.

Sounds like the heater matrix.

Run the car til its hot and turn the blowers on hot full wack. Pull the carpets back and check all around the centre console. Most probably be warm water there somewhere. If so its a dash out job unfortunately (Well is on an Escort). Then best bet would be to replace the matrix and flush the coolant system before filling up again.

They didn't do 100% checking as it is still leak......................... <_<

it is not something mystery. They or you can find it as there are only 3 kinds of water, 1. from radiator(heater system) 2. from outside 3. cool air radiator inside passenger room.

Tell them try hard more................... :D
