Re: water in foot well and under back seat

The water inst coming up from your foot well its coming down from your roof? do you have a sunroof manual electric or an Ariel at the top front of your car if so you need to check the seals and drainage holes that is a very common fault with the clio's

Re: water in foot well and under back seat

on my 1.2 clio grande 2000, the rear drivers side footwell fills up with water. the drivers side seatbelt, the part under the trim when retracted, is also wet...but none of the roof lining seems wet. is there a drainage channel from the sunroof and does it go down the door pillar where the seat belt lies? how far off the floor is the seat belt reel?

Re: water in foot well and under back seat

Just in case you've not come across this:

Clio 2 Leaking & rattling Sunroof FIXED!

After taking the inner surround (pseudo-seal) and the glass to frame seal out, tape up the inner edges of the sunroof frame where they could possibly be sharp . Use duct tape I say this as I have just started 3 months' of physio to repair a sliced extensor tendon when doing this job a few weeks ago Sods law, I was only double-checking the last bolt was tight, so I'd only just finished the job

My wife's car had this problem, with water in both footwells on the driver's side and dampness on the passenger side. Fixed the problem, the next one you'll come across is drying the carpets:

Best way to dry the carpets is to take them out, along with as much liner as you can. Pig of a job but, wife doesn't want me to do that so stuck with using moisture traps and keeping the car hot after vaxing it. It's going to take months before she realises she needs me to take the carpets out to do the job properly

Good luck, wear gloves if in doubt, haha - owch

Re: water in foot well and under back seat

Have this problem also. Don't have time to reseal the manual sunroof currently but have comprehensively Duct taped it up and the edges so as to prevent water ingress.

Mostly successful but the seatbelt when drawn, is still damp after rain (but I'm reasonably confident its not coming in from beneath the car as it happens when the car isn't used).

The door seals look fine - am wondering if its getting in somehow from the roof drains down the A pillar. Any suggestions gratefully received.

Re: water in foot well and under back seat

Hey everyone! Im having the same problem with my wee DCI and its driving me insane! I have absolutely no idea about cars so any help would be appreciated! :D

I got my wee DCI in October and it has been sat on the drive as i am waiting to pass my test

On Sunday I happened to put my hand in the back and the ground was soaking behind the drivers seat and that is the only place around the whole car that is wet.

Yes my car has a sunroof and i have checked the drains and they werent blocked

Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated! :D
