Water has travelled all the way back from the front in my experience. Still think that you have corrosion on the seams within the pollen housing if the bung is clear. My water issue all but disappeared after I painted the rusted areas with bitumen paint. Although car still steamed up over night. I think the noise damping foam holds a serious amount of water..It's busy rusting away the floor ;D

I could see noise dampening on bulkhead above floor, like my cavy, it's about an inch or more thick. Holds water like no ones business. Nightmare to dry out.

Tunnie had a wet rear carpet that we eventually traced to a hole in floor, look like it should have had a rubber bung or similar.

He just used a sealer over the hole... ...which I guess is an improvement on gaffer tape!

I noticed this leak starting again yesterday as there was a lot of precipitation the last few days. Basically I shimmied under the passenger side of dash and caught this:



I then checked the drain under scuttle and it was clear. It must be running down to this what looks like heater air intake or motor section.

have you checked under the pass seat, see if its wet there. as found a floor pan rubber on mine that would let water in going though the wet stuff. and pooled at the front foot area. but it was the floor rubber seal. removed it and cleaned it round. and put sealant around the rim and put the rubber seal back in, not done it since.

I did have a wet rear floor at one point, i reckoned it was water from front running back, as car was parked uphill a wee bit,  usually parked on a downhill slope. I dont use it in rain if i can help it, so not much chance to see but will check those plugs next time im under.
