If it as a sun roof look carefully at the roof lining above the front of the doors
for any sign of leaks / water staining.

Expert.
An "ex" is a has-been. A "spurt" is a drip under pressure.

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.

No sunroof - that would have been a prime candidate (been there, done that, got the wet shirt ...).

Got chance to look at this after work. Got the liner out enough to look behind, and found a couple of inches of ... err ... "silt" filling up the void behind it. I could see the front end of the sill, but couldn't see any drain hole - after I'd cleared the silt of course.
I put a few gallons of water down the scuttle panel, and it gushed out down the back of the wheelarch.

Re: 51 Kangoo - water in passenger side footwells

Hi. Ive got the same problem (water coming in on passenger side) in my Kangoo. Drains from scuttle end cleared by garage a couple of months back and all seemed well but not after today's downpour

Did clearing the silt/gunge from behing arch liner do the trick ?

Today I baled out the footwell and dried it off. Hour and half later (with heavy rain) and I'm back to a big puddle :/
