    Dougie - front carpet passenger is typically the elephant trunk. Driver side is commonly clogged grills below windshield.

    see pics in the link below (under front carpet) & most likely visible behind the front wheels

I'll check again after the rain lets up to see if ive diagnosed these problems fully.
    So here you're saying essentially that there was a hole in the bottom of the trunk where water was coming in? How is this even possible for water to come in from below where the battery is, if it would just drain out that hole.

    I've been having the same problem in my trunk.. Both side trunk trays were filled; jack and battery side.
    Turns out my problem on the jack side was a lack of aN antenna grommet. Since my antenna didnt work, I just took that thing out and taped it up with electrical tape while I wait for Jaywood's plug to come in. It still leaks though, but I've sourced the problem to my trunk weatherstripping. There's no silicone, so it's letting in water drips from time to time. Not an alarming amount, maybe a drip here or there every 10 minutes, but still enough to set my OCD sensors off lol

    i was getting water in the trunk (both underneath the battery) & the jack side. Pool of it.

    Turns out 95% of it was coming in from the plastic grommets that hold the C-pillar trim in place. It was such a miniscule gap in the grommet, but was enough to fill up that trunk in one rain storm.

    The other source of water I figured out (on the battery tray side)....was the gas door lock area. When you open the gas door, you'll see this black rubber stopper (held in w/ 2 philips screws). I took a hose to it...and good enough water was coming in from there.

    Big trouble around the fan housing through the firewall. Could crack seal fix it? I have tried silicone, works a while... but suddenly its wet under the carpet again

    I have tried to fix this leak twice now. From the inside and the outside.

    I have used a silicone thing. and it seems to be ok for a little while before it start leaking again.

    I live in Norway, and it rains a lot so I am desperate to get a fix for this.

    I have once taken out the dash to take a look. And Can not say I want to take it out once more !

    Is there a fix that you found? R/R the trunk seal?

    Host that pic on photobucket or what have you so we can see ...

    Haven't tried to fix it yet, my driveway slopes up and I just don't back-up it anymore.
