Latest update - took the car back to the garage I bought it from and saw the owner who took a quick look and said itís the left hand drain hose from the sunroof which appears to have broken and come inside the car. He said it should be a quick fix so itís booked in for next Wednesday. Iíll keep you posted...

Good result, I thought you had tried pouring water on roof and sunroof though ? Just wonder how the tube came to get broken / split - and how the previous owner knew about it  :o

I think he is referring to the owner of the garage.

Ok so took the car this morning. The leaking hose is definitely the sunroof drain which has somehow entered the cabin (reason unknown). With the bottom part of the glovebox removed to gain access, and a bit of reaching,twisting and turning they managed to redirect the hose back out of the car and into the pillar where it belongs. Hopefully now that will be the end of my wet carpet and smelly car. Fingers crossed!

I had this same problem and after a lot of searching found the water was getting in through the hole where the cables from the headlight enter the car. This is accessed by removing the plastic splash guard under the wheel arch. The hole originally had a grommet in it but this had got so loose that the water could track down the cables through the bulkhead. I have put a lot of black sealer around it and this has done the job. Hope this helps.
