Any help would be much appreciated.
If you want my advise I would get shot of the car! Common fault! The water gathers under the passenger seat and corrodes the main multi plug for the main two wiring lomb's. I work for a garage and have just renewed the two lomb's at a cost of 1300 and over 40 hours labour. If the water damage gets too bad it will/can create damage to other main components. The one I am repairing spiked the steering lock which cost another 240+. We have now got the car running but have problems with the radio. Our customer has this repair covered by insurance but the bill will be arround 3500 and the car's not worth much more than that. It should have been written off!

Get rid before it all starts!
