Possibly layers of foam carpet underlay ? Best option if possible would be to source some from a local scrapyard.

An update on this thread.
Leak sorted out, rust cut out and patched/welded, all nice and ok BUT
thick sponge-like insulation material under the driver's footwell has disintegrated into small pieces and is unusable now.
What material can I use instead?


I would use the thin(6 or 8mm thick) closed cell matting sold for standing on at workbenches. Most DIY places sell it in 1m squares here; 15 is easily enough to do a whole car.

Glad you got this sorted nothing worse than water getting in  to a car, that's why I stopped buying Fords many years ago, I had everything from Escorts to Granadas & everyone let in water onto the carpets.

Insulation has arrived today and I went to install it. All done now - front driver side covered, passenger side which was dry covered in another layer and covered red footwells too + some still left for when I'll put the carpets back. I went for a drive and I must say I'm impressed with level of sound deadening it offers. Job done for now until the carpets dry trough.
