Unfortunately the answer to both of your questions is no. Might look at removing the carpet once the weather warms up a bit!

Ford put grommets in weird places so a good look underneath the pan will be a good idea.
The seals may have a pinch or dent in them, or evenjust have lost their flexibility.
A good inspection will tell you.
It may even be the case that the door catches need adjusting.

The garage reckoned they could not confirm that there is a problem with seals, they just said that they it might be worth replacing them. TBH I rather not spend £100 to have the new ones fitted unless there is a very possibility that it fix the issue.

dunno if your car has a rear washer?
but check to see if the pipe runs along that side from the front.
i know on the galaxy range in there wisdom they put a joint to the pipe around the passenger seat directly above the central locking alarm module.

I appreciate the water could be be coming from a number of different places. The car does have a rear washer, however the car is parked on a steep drive and the car faces forward so unless the water is able to break the law the gravity then I don't think this can be the source of the issue!

I have water dripping in from the tailgate.
As you'll no doubt be aware, water can enter from a different place to where you see it.
I know it's a fair old job, but if you can peel back or remove the carpets, sit in the car while some one hoses the car down then at least you can follow it's track and have the benefit of properly drying the carpets at the same time..Start from the bottom of the car and work your way up, giving sufficient time for the water to run down before moving the hose position.

I think that I may have to ultimately need to have the carpet(s) removed to try and locate find the source of the water.
Having not removed any carpets before I was hoping that someone who has removed them can comment on how difficult this task is, as I have to admit I am not the most practical person, so I need to determine whether it is something that I have a bash at!?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your reply Stoney. Are you suggesting that water could be coming UP through the missing grommets (if there are any). Also if there were a problem with the door seal then wouldn't the hosepipe test highlist this problem?
