    Does anyone know where water can enter my -87 Volvo 240 GL Injections front
    footwells? It took water in to the right (passenger) side footwell, and it
    was fixed at my local repair shop (costly), they blamed a missing rubber
    plug. Now it has started taking water in to the left side footwell also.
    After a heavy rain shower the front carpet is completely wet. The water
    seems to come in somewhere behind the dashboard. I sprayed water to the left
    side air intake grille at the bottom of the windscreen (outside the car..),
    and it seemed to be that water which was entering the cabin. Please help me
    until the darn machine rots completely away!

    Ihave had almost the same problem with my 245. It was the drain canals from
    the vent intakes that was plugged with years of fallen leaves etc. If You
    have side turn signals on the front wings, You should remove these and blow
    with compressed air into the openings in the inner body panel. You might
    also need to have a stiff wire (or the like) to loosen all the dirt while
    If You don't have turn signals, You probably need to remove the front wings
    completely :eek:/

    Good luck, and let us know if it works for You
