I have a 2006 Ford Streetka. Recently I noticed that when lifting the passenger mat to hoover that the carpet was wet. I dried it out and put newspaper there. It seemed to be ok for maybe a week and then I noticed that the paper was soaking again. I am not sure if it has been dry only because I only travel app 2 miles to and from work and possibly the problem was worse at the weekend when I was using the car more.
Car has been into garage for mot and service and they charged me £15 for checking the fault but did not get to the bottom of it(probably not a very detailed check!) while it was in for it's 3rd service and 1st mot.
My paperwork shows
*checked pollen filter - dry
*checked air con drains
*no sign of water ingress at time of check
Can anyone advise on any other problems that it is likely to be or is it likely to be one of the above and they have just not checked it out properly?!
Also could I do some checking myself and what would I be looking out for?
I am quite confident that water is not getting in to the vehicle from a leak around door as the carpet is only wet in an area in middle of carpet just about 6 inches in front of passenger seat - not around door or at front of footwell near dash
Any advice gratefully received!!!
