Unhappy Fiat Seicento Passenger Footwell Flooding

Hello there,

I was wondering if anyone on this wonderful forum would be able to help me out. I'm having a few issues with my Fiat Seicento Active Sport's passenger footwell. After heavy rain the passenger footwell seems to always be full of water, there's none anywhere else, not on the seats or in the driver's footwell, just the passenger side.

I thought that it might have been coming from the sunroof, so I had the seal replaced on that, but to no avail. Does anyone have any ideas as to what might be causing this?

Any help would be much appreciated as I'm a bit fed up of my passengers using lovely Fiat as a paddling pool!

Overheat.

Odd as it sounds, suspect the rear light cluster seals.

window seals.

Also check the rear lights. The seals perish on those, and the water runs down side of car into the footwell.

Also, even if the sunroof seal is brand new, if the drain holes are blocked, it will leak still. Worth a quick check
