Water in footwell

We had torrential rain today while Flavia was parked outside. I checked her once it had stopped to find quite a substantial amount of water in the drivers footwell (LHD btw). The roof area looked dry, and itís a fairly new roof so I donít think itís coming through there.

So whereís the most likely area of ingress? Windscreen perhaps? Any other particular areas that are most likely?

Are there any drainage holes under the carpet? Or any other method of removing water safely?

Thanks in advance

Yeah that’s what made me suspect the windscreen. But wondered if there were any other known problem areas I should be checking?

Yes lol. I tried covering the windscreen with a black bag during the last lot of rain and none came in so it definitely looks like the seals have gone
