Problem solved, it was the cracked seam, so that goes too if you don't have a sunroof.

I must admit, after I filled it all with black Sikaflex it took a couple of days to notice things are becomimg dry again, it's the time of the season. Plus the footwell carpet is still wet, it will take some time to dry. Or, as Mark states, water doesn't flow uphill.

I was amazed by the thickness of the carpet/foam when I saw it. I can't imagine it will dry out naturally in any reasonable time frame unless you stick the car in a paint oven or something. I suppose you could use dessicant in a dehumidifier but I think you'd be letting yourself into a lot of faff.

Reminds me years ago I bought a 5-series BMW that had been submerged in water until the roof in it's own garage under the house, the price was obviously right so couldn't let go.
I asked the man what water it had been, it very well could be a sewer that had flushed back, in that case I wasn't interested. No it was pure rainwater he said.
Picked up the car and rented a barn from a farmer nearby, rented two heatcannons and stripped the entire car (it was the model with the electronic cassettes under the rear seat).
All interior out to the bare body, every connector loose, blowed dry with compressed air, carpets pressed like a sponge with a lawn roller.
It took me 3 weeks to get the car dry at a constant 20ºC in that barn.
The car drove lovely after that but never got rid of electrical gremlins.
