    Hmm, I wouldn't just assume its a leak, there is always moisture in the air, which can freeze.......

    My EK had a leaky passenger footwell, leaking through a small hairline split in the seam sealer right at the top of the firewall.. My windscreen formed ICE on the inside a couple of times too... Feel your carpets, see if they feel damp

    my EJ6 used to ICE up inside


    once i fixed the leaky back lights (common problem) and put the dehumidifier in it over the weekend it was perfect :Grin:

    Used to happen to my EJ9, once had water in the foot-well after I left the sunroof open overnight lol.


    I'd check the pollen filter doesn't need sorting first, could be full of wet leaves etc causing moisture in the air :Smile:

    When installing wiring kits for systems, people tend to remove rubber plugs from the firewall, you havnt done this have you?

    My passenger footwell is bloody soaked too atm.


    Only started happening this week and my windscreen is soaking but not frozen.


    The windscreen isn't leaking, that's condensation, but i'm puzzled to how to footwell is soo wet!


    Want to solve it before it starts to smell damp and effects any wiring.
