Leaking Rain water

Post by tony trans am » 02 Dec 2018, 00:44

My LHD GS lets in water when it rains, it runs down to drip off brake pedal switch, nothing is immediately obvious, windscreen rubber looks good. Is there a common fault?

I had something similar on a 406, not quite the same I know but that was because the grommet on the bonnet pull cable had been pulled out which is directly above the pedals, ended up scrapping the car as it soaked the electronics - you won't be having that problem on yours!

Could be leaves blocking the drain holes under the bonnet - wherever they might be!

I had the same and there is a rubber 'vent' thing at the top of the wheel arch, squeeze it so it opens and loads of crap and water will come out.

Flush it out with a hose once it is flowing to clear out any remaining debris.
