After torrential rain over the weekend I discovered a new passenger in the 146...

Some investigation is therefore required to find out where the water is getting in. But it certainly isn't getting out via those drain holes...

Oh, good heavens!

Well, it wouldn't drain if it was above the carpet; that stuff is impervious!

Have you got a sunroof on that one, Jeremy..?

No sunroof - but peering in through the window while it was still raining, the water seemed to be coming in under the door.

Having opened the door you can see how wet the door seal is - plus a little dried "track" going over the sill trim - which is where I saw the water running in.

Weird, huh? Anyone else experienced this? More importantly, how to fix it?

(And to get rid of the water I actually had to bale it out using a tupperware food container... that's a first...)

that's insane

I'd have betted for a leak from the scuttle area down past the cabin ventilation fan, or some kind of windscreen-seal problem leading to a trickle down the A-pillar.

I've never seen anything like that...


maybe just have to try for new door seals...

I had the same problem on our old renault megane with water coming from the sills somewhere. It turned out to be rain running down the side windows, into the door and then down the back of the door card and into the footwell. Turns out the megane doesn't have a membrane on the inside of the door, but the door card has a rubber seal. As the door card wasn't screwed in tight enough, the seal wasn't made. I know the 145 has a waterproof foam type membrane glued on with some tacky black stuff so maybe this has come adrift allowing rain water to splash and trickle through the back of the door card?
