Re: scenic 3 water leak front foot wells

run a search
Nott sure what it entails on a scenic 3 but generic info.
At rear corners of the engine bay, under the screen/scuttle, there are often shelves.
Certainly is on the Scenic 2 (and many other cars)
There are drains in the corners that allow water to escape.
If they block, leaf mulch, gunge etc, the water can't escape.
So it finds another way, often through the heater and floods the car
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
