Thanks for your interest Rory.
The car is parked on a very slight gradient - about 5 to 10 degrees downhill. This angle shouldn't make any difference to the amount of water coming in.

We also have a passenger water in the footwell problem in an Ateca Excellence 1.4 purchased in February 2017.
The problem was first noticed after the winter weather and was completely sodden both front and back, the car returned to the dealer to sort. After 3 weeks of water testing we were told that they had found a problem with a grommet in the bulkhead which had been fixed.

The car is now with the dealer again with the exact same problem and has been with them for nearly 2 months, it has been water tested and car washed without showing leaks, however when in bad weather, passenger seats and carpets out ,water had leaked into the car, possibly down to a blocked drainage system .. to be determined

The car is normally parked on a slight angle with the nose up.
Any help would be appreciated.
