I have recently bought a V reg Focus and have found that water leaks into the front of the car when it rains. The water drips in thought the interior light fitting and onto the gearbox.
At first I thought the water was getting in through the ariel as it was split near the top but i have taped it up and there is no way it can get through there. My next guess is that id is getting in through a gap in the windscreen somewhere or the seal.
Has anyone experienced this problem before?
Any help or advice on what to do next would be greatly appreciated

Cheers
Iain

there s a new updated pollen filter cover qand seal to fix this problem a few mates took theres to ford and had it done free of charge worth a shot apparently when the filter is being done the top cover should be slid upwards and not pulled off and new sealing strips should be put on
