I went out to the P38 today and saw a small swimming pool in the floor where the loom goes and my floor mat was saturated, water is leaking from above the dash and on to the carpet..
The worst it's ever been, prolly thanks to this storm "ciara" we recently had, rain has been relentless.

I've sealed up the pollen filters and everything under the scuttle - Drains are clear.
Duck taped the shagged sunroof up too.

so that sorts out the 2 most common areas,,

are there any other places for water to get in?

Cheers gents.

Patience is getting then regarding this water ingress, i can deal with ruined engines and major components, but small things like this really wind me up!!

I can relate on how annoying water ingress is - you think you've cracked it... then shortly after a downpour, you find its still raining from the dash...

When you say you've sealed everything under the scuttle - does that include the screws along the bottom of the windscreen? One of my sources of water ingress was the outer most one - the plastic screw insert is directly above the pollen filter, much like the screw near the pollen filter covers.

I've also had the filter housings out entirely and resealed them to the bodywork too.

I don't want to say I've definitively resolved it for now - because... well... its a Land Rover. If its meant to retain a liquid, it will leak it out. If its meant to keep it out, it'll let it in. Change my mind :)

In the interim i need to extract water from the carpets.

A rather ingenious solution if i say so myself!!
