Open the both doors on the affected side , and swing open and close if you hear sloshing you may just have a blocked drain hole in the doors, if you hear nothing then check the rubber seals on doors and trunk , if seals are ok and no water in door I'd see if the rear washer line has broken , air con freeze could be an issue but would be more to the front than rear
HI yes 100% brake servo plate its a common on corsa c and combo vans water in the driver footwell and rear driver footwell. dealers are charging a fortune to replace the plate and you will see lots of videos on youtube on how to repair it without taking out the brake servo. fact is the servo needs to come out to carry out a good repair.
Best advice from i ever got from an old mariner was if the water gets in drill a hole and let it out ,then worry about it later .When i lived in the uk many years ago and the older cars then had rubber window screen seals it was common to get water leaks in the front footwells which caused rust and eventually the car to fail the inspection for corrosion in the floor so i used to drill a 3/8th hole either side of the respective floorpan by the seal so if the car was parked in the road pointing in one direction the water would tun out and when car moved and parked on the other side of the road it could run out that side ,Yes i know iam ancient and none of these things i done are relevant now and are frowned upon as you have to fit new parts but in my time i repaired things and welding up cars was everyday and stopping them from rotting afterwards was part of that.Including opening the rubber bung in the boot to let the water out and if no rubber bung drilling a hole .But then iam only a dinasaur now so ignore me
the spacer bar holding the passanger seat in place is cracked/rusting? If so you will need to get the section cut out and a new plate fabricated to fit and welded in. Check the door seals are intact as well, the water might be coming in there down to the lowest point.
my brother-in-law had this same problem with his truck and we fixed it with clear sylicone all the way around the windshild and almost all of the firewall. sence we did that he has not had any more water problems.
lift the bonnet and remove the plastic trim below the windscreen (passenger side) this covers the pollen filter check for distortion this will be the problem. replace the pollen filter it will be damp.if the trimis not too distorted refit or buy new. The trim acts as a rain water gutter and has been fitted incorectley, have you recently had a service ?
your footwells will fill with water - even under your seats right to the back seats footwells
See two 10mm holes in front sides when sunroof is open.
a) push a flexible cable down from the top - it comes out just behind the front wheels. (use electric three core cable - or TV aerial cable - a hanger is too short) - you need about a metre and a half)
b) remove the inner mudgaurd behind the front wheels (2 screws) you will see the end of the plastic drainage pipes - remove the blocked black rubber cup at the end of these - why they are there is anybody's guess)
