Smile Re: Water leaking into car footwells

Hi, got a 1998 RTX 2.2dt, with the same problem. Identified, drainage holes blocked in the air vents on the mirrors. Take off pollen filter covers in engine bay, reach inside and under mirror housing, mine was full of mud and about 2 inches of water. Water collected on top of blocked drain hole and seeps into car Emptied out and stuck a hose in to wash and clear drain flap until no silt came out of the drains in the wings. No more water in footwells for last six months even after this summer.
