I have a Tigra, 09 reg. and the inside, front floor is soaking

Resolved Question:

I have a Tigra, 09 reg. and the inside, front floor is soaking wet. Inside is always running with condensation and can't seem to dry it out.
Have checked for leaky windows and around where top opens up, but found nothing.
Is this a common problem, if so, what can be done?

Hello If the car has AC then this could be the AC drain pipe thats come adrift or is clogged under the car and backing up the system. To get to the pipe you access it from under the car Also worth checking that the door seals don't have any rips or tears and that they're touching all round the door - best way to confirm this is to rub some vaseline into the seal and close the door then when you re-open it check that the grease line is all the way round and check where theres any gaps - as this indicates the seal isn't touching also check that the sunroof drains are free and clear and these should vent out under the car and can become silted up and rust though due to the trapped water - If you look in the corners of the sunroof well in the roof you should spot a small hole / channel which is the entrance to the drain and I'd also remove the pollen filter and check inside its chamber for any signs of water as these shoud have a drain for water to escape and they can clog up

Thanks Matt. No AC so can rule that out. Will check the other suggestions. Great help. Not sure where all these things are, but I have a manual! Thanks again.
