Re: Water leaking into car footwells

@JeremyW probably has the answer. Its a common problem on some smaller Fiats.

But (to be a miserable g*t), if it's had a new windscreen the problem just might be corrosion. Some screen fitters are none too fussy when they clean off the old screen mastic. If they scraped the paint off and did not coat the damage with mastic, the base metal could corrode though at that spot.
