Thought I'd add just a couple of pics to this thread for reference (and as a reminder to owners to check theirs every now and then!)

Had a rough week with the missus getting admitted nearly a week ago with a burst appendix, and shes had to have further surhery since and we've now missed a family holiday to corfu.
Anyhow went to get in the car this morning to be greeted by a swimming pool in the drivers footwell, didn't have time to investigate as i was on the way to the hospital so used another car.
Just got home so will have to have a look tomorrow, any advise as to which drains to check please

I'd agree with that - take the side trim off to the drivers side transmission tunnel / footwell area and you'll see it there.

Sod's law these things always come along together - hope the missus feels better soon and you manage to re-sort a holiday +++

I went to check the drain behind the footrest, but its bone dry there, it seems to be dripping from the dash as the bonnet release has water on it, any other ideas?

In that case could either be blocked sunroof drain, blocked scuttle drain or windscreen leak :(

Either side of the tunnel up nearly as high as the top as the footrest but back towards the driver by about 9 inches as per pictures for drivers footwell. The other side is reflected on the other side of the transmission tunnel but same position

Thanks for your help guys, going to stick it in the garage and investigate when i have time, if it is the ones you're talking about, is it a case of just emptying the water in there, or did you use some compressed air or something to try and unblock wherever it is blocking from?
