: Water leak

I have a water leak in drivers footwell and seems to be coming in from the bulkhead part which is behind the pedals/dash and engine bay (behind brake servo black metal panel which has sealant around it). Anyone have the same problem and if so how much repair bill will be!.

If ayone else has this problem it seems to be the bulkhead is needing sealant reapplied behind the pedals

I had the same problem in my old corsa B, grommet had been drilled for wires to be ran through and had not been covered so water was getting in. Just need to get a new grommet or just cover it up.

old thread but thought id update all those ppl with water probs
I had bad water leak and found leak on seal as shown in the picture above. Mine was on other side though. Pulled all plastics off and re sealed it with silicone sealant and had been fine for a while now without a drop of water getting into car.

if ya look on down at the bottom of the servo at the bulk head there is like a sponge type seal look at the very bottom c if the seal is all cracked up i jus filled mines with sealler and it seems to have fixed it.

Could be awkward but you could try using a hair dryer to dry the carpet. Try putting the heaters on in the car aswell and point them towards the foot wells providing this is where the leak is.

cheers for the advice, sealed the seal again, and the carpet seems to be drying out, had the heaters on full blast for 2 days, hopfully this has sorted it
