Flooded 'REAR' footwell <SOLVED>
I have an R50 2001 Mini Cooper...
For weeks now, with the incessant rain, my rear passenger side footwell is completely flooded... not just damp, but absolutely flooded. The mats are absolutely sodden.
I did have a problem with water in the boot and read on the forum about the high level brake light seal... and sure enough mine was compromised, so I removed and refitted the seal and it seemed to cure the problem.
But I am at a loss where to start looking for a leak in the rear footwell as there is no openable window or door - so does anyone have any ideas? The only thing I could think of is through the high level brake light again if it is just running to one side?
Oh, the other thing my daughter noticed when in the back was that the back seat was damp... but I cant believe its coming through the boot seal onto the seat and then only into the passenger footwell.
I was thinking about removing the high level brake light seal and replacing with a bead of silicon sealant as used in bathrooms.
Has anyone else had this, or any thoughts where to start?
