I am having a little trouble with water getting in to the Passenger footwell. It appears to be coming from quite close t the bulkhead and very close to the centre console!
I have checked all the drains in the Scuttle tray, taped and vasalined the holes in the bulkhead where the cables run through. It is defo not the doors and I am not losing any coolant.
Where could it be from? Any ideas please...
Sorry forgot to mention it is an 89 Cab

Hi new here but had a few of the older classics myself,have you Got a good screen seal.as sometimes they split due to age or the body flexing due to being a cab and the screan being major part of keeping all things straight

Screen sealing is a common problem on the Mk1 and so is rot in the plenum chamber above the fuse box under the tar padding in the plenum chamber, look from underneath around the brake servo reaction bar for sings of staining.
