Re: Water in front footwells

It's definitely worth checking the drain outlets.
It's very common for road crud to gather up behind the wheel arch liners at the back of the front wheels thus inhibiting drainage. Anyone I know who has ever removed the plastic bit is surprised at how much gunge and road dirt that has acumulated.

There's an old saying in the world of drainage - if theres a problem always start at the lower point as that's where the blockage tends to accumulate
