Default Water Ingress


Can anybody point me in the direction of useful threads related to water ingress?

It has rained a lot recently and I have a lot of water coming into the cabin down the pillars and through the interior lighting control panels in headlining...

My car has a sunroof and I've seen previous threads about clogged drains being a likely cause... have a feeling it's something more than but need to sort it this weekend before my car is completely ruined!

Any assistance would be much appreciated.
