A leak here ends up with water running down inside the inner trim and wetting the footwells. Recks the radio if you have a car with the radio under the drivers seat. Fix is removing the wingmirror panel and using seam sealer (I recon silicone sealant would do) on this seam.
Just bought an Espace V6 with a non-working stereo. Surprise, surpise the drivers footwell is wet. I shall be sealing this gap very soon. Thanks for sharing.
