uild up of water in floor footwells
#1
Hi guys, what could cause ingress of water into the interior footwells? I can't see any obvious place that water could be getting in. I've got it collecting in the dimples in the floor pan directly under the front seats, and the bits where the handbrake cable guide tubes go through the floor. Can't possibly be from driving around as the van has been mostly stationary.

This is a fairly common occurrence on Berlingos. Have a read through this thread:
https://www.berlingoforum.com/thread-22002.html
I opened the thread about water I've had in my M49, but if you read the thread through you'll see that the B9 can also have issues.
Another possible cause is a leaking heater matrix, though your vehicle is probably a bit young for that (also it'd only happen when driving around).

Also have a look at this thread. It's specific to the seals on the M49 but might be useful:

Are your front doors full of water? It can come in via the speaker holes. Also leaking roof aerial, windscreen, matrix as said, missing floor bung (but not if it hasn't moved)

Would the drivers door seal be a possible source? I've only just noticed the rubber is worn near the door latch as you get in the drivers door

It's always possible.

I've found it can be surprisingly hard to pinpoint the source of water ingress - unfortunately it's not like a snail that leaves a slimy trail to show where it's been!  I've found it helpful to tuck a dry rag under the inward edge of any portion of door seal that's suspected of not being watertight, then looking to see if it gets wet after a good rainy spell - this method helped me find one virtually invisible leak in my M49, in the seal running along the bottom of the driver's doorframe (once the water had got past the compromised seal, it was running down unseen between the metal of the doorframe and the plastic trim on top of it).
