Hi, I've had this problem and spent hours with my Wife watering the front scuttle area with the wipe mechanism removed. I hope at last I've narrowed it down to an area where the brake booster to attached to the firewall. Rather than take it out I've used a cleaning gun on a compressor and fired heaps (and heaps) or black soundproofing tarry solution down around, in and about the right side as you look from the front. Certainly at this stage the water running inside has decreased markedly and I've given it one last blast this morning. I'm optimistic this will cure.

It is probably leaking around the brake servo..the factory seal begins to crack and water drips into the foot-well via the brake pedal etc....What I did was to remove the wipers, plastic cover and washer bottle...shine a torch around where the brake servo joins the body...you will see cracks...some folk renew the seal by removing the brake servo...i'm lazy...so cleaned the seal with methylated spirit...the bought some thick wax oil that you brush onto underneath cars (looks like thick black tar) I gently heated some with hair dryer...makes it runny..then poured it all around the seal. After this cooled I then brushed more over the top. 3 months on now...all fine and dry ;)

Rain water leaking in drivers side vauxhall meriva


if this is a new shape meriva the problem is the wiper scuttle seal leaking water .it drips into the engine bay,onto the heater pipes and tracs into the cabin.Pour water onto the screen and look into the engine bay,just behind the engine and you will see it drip onto the heater pipes where they enter the bulkhead.It then tracs into the cabin and soaks the carpet.The problem is a foam seal on the scuttle panel when it should be a rubber one.One fix is to ensure that the seal where the heater pipes enter via the engine bay is dry and spray it and the pipes with underseal.Vauxhall are aware but dont have a solution?

I have water leaking into passanger footwell . the garage has tried everything. are they missing something


That's usually caused by either a leaking heater core (does it smell like coolant?) or a leaking condensation line on the AC unit (it will appear to be water). It could always be a leak in the footwell or the windows too, but that would only appear when there is rain.

Hyundai Getz leaks near pedals when raining


My Getz is also having similar problem. I have thrice got water test done from Hyundai server center. After 2nd test they put some sealants underbody and return the car, but still water was leaking in. 3rd time water test, hyundai said its all fine, no problem but still problem persists. It happens when it rains only, so I dont suspect air-con filters or radiator problems. Water pool is created in driver side footwell only. During heavy rain, I tried to troubleshoot but couldnt find any fault point from where water might be leaking inside. Its second year, I have running into this problem, creating stinking smell inside the car due to wet mats. Looks like I need to do away with my car.

Seat Alhambra 1996 1.9L water leak drivers footwell


the water can travel along surfaces or beams in the car so you cannot tell where it is actually leaking. in my ford windstar water leaked in right over the fuse box. it ran along a cross beam from the passenger side. if it has those plastic strips they use to go in between small gaps in the metal... like along the roof where the roof is and the metal of the sides joins it is likely they are leaking. best to take a garden hose and have someone inside the car with a flashlight on the floor looking for leaks

Removing a speed limiter from a vauxhall combo cdti van


The speed-limiter is likely to be enabled via the ECU. Removing the limiter is a five-minute job if you have access to the GM Tech 2 electronic management/diagnostic tool.

If the van is yours then there's no legal requirement for the limiter. You could just book it in at a Vauxhall dealer for the limiter to be removed. They may charge you for an hour's labour though. Still worth doing in my opinion.
