Bumped into a bit of a soaking problem in my car. The rear passenger side footwell is somewhat wet and now smelly.

I can't identify where its coming from though, it seems to be predominant after driving in the wet (not consciously noticed it when its rained hard and the car has been idle) as the carpet looks like its been rained on. Its not at the sides but more in the centre of the carpet too.

Door seals look ok, and no water running down them.

I'll try and snap some shots of the carpet tonight after driving to Guildford.

Have something to contribute?

Check under the car for obvious holes... I remember my mate had a similar problem a few years back in a Citroen, and there was a gaping great hole under the car. You could stick your finger through it!

At first I thought it was my mates had dropped beer in the back, but it didn't smell like that originally the first time I noticed it was damp. But recently I hoovered the car, and I took up the foot mat and it was soaking wet under neath but not a puddle. I did check the front but thats perfectly dry, and its got a lump down the middle anyway so its not like it would be slooshing forwards and backwards.

I'd like to hope that my MK2.5 hasn't gone the way of the old escorts and have a great big hole in the bottom! Its only 4 years old!

i would assume so god knows how that went missing it comes out from the inside and is usually bonded i would get a new one and use tiger seal to make sure it stays well and truly fitted dont worry about going mad with the stuff get it well stuck while youre at it cover the edges of the other one while its in place

I lol'd. I'd love to know where its gone because I'm pretty sure it was there when I got the car... though I am wondering.
