flooding impreza 05

Guys this is a real annoying problem my 05 impreza has sprung a leak!!!! when it rains water gets into the car fairly bad, it gathers two Big pudddles in the drivers side and behind the drivers side, the boot is also leaking seems i have to take off an reseal the seal around the boot!

The two big puddles are the ones starting to startle me though, it seems they just gather in the centre dont seem to be any wet bits by the seals, have had real heavy rain lately and was able to sit in the car and monitor this and nothing around the firewall seems to be wet either, also seems to be worse when car is pointed downhill!!

drop the glovebox door down/off and whip the pollen filter out, see if its wet thru.

Dry it out, sit inside the car and get a friend to soak it with a hose pipe. Then start looking around the door seals, windows, etc etc. Might help to pop a few trims off to get greater access

Re: flooding impreza 05

sorry about late update guys.. So far i have pinned it down to the rubber seal around the boot of the car, there is a small tear and water is getting through, could even be more than one leak from that seal. anyone know where i could get one of the?? And is it as straight forward as taking off old one and fitting new one with sealant.
