Icon9 HELP! Water Leak on rear passenger footwell - 20th November 2016, 02:29 PM

Looking for some help here. I ham getting water ingress on the near side rear passenger footwell on my right hand drive Mini Cooper Clubman Diesel. I have checked all the seals around the door and all seems fine. Someone said to me it may be a problem inside the door on a plastic sheet but I do not want to dismantle to find out. It does seem to be coming down from the sill guard which holds the carpet down. Other than that I am stumped. Any guidance on known problems is welcome. My Mini is only 11 months old.

I would take it back to the garage you got it from as its not 12 mouths old and is under warranty

As above post, there was a known fault on a few seals failing on the Countryman which will be replaced under warranty. I was having a chat with the service manager last week in regard to known faults so I know what to check before my warranty expires!!

Probably irrelevant but I once had a Saab 9-3 3 door which had a water leak into the boot that took me ages to find. It turned out to be a seam around the inside of the petrol filler aperture where the filler cavity joined the outer rear wing. Some silicon seal rubbed firmly into the joint cured it completely. May be worth a look if the filler cap is the same side.
