    Hi guys,

    I've got a weird leak on the 52 LCR, ive re-sealed all the door seals and the front drivers foot well is still getting quite wet.

    I've noticed its dripping from around where the bonnet release catch is, (on to the plastic trim).

    Any ideas guys?

    Search mate. Lots of info. Search for " leak above pedals" there is possibly a leak from the bonnet release grommet, or a gap in the bulkhead seal. I had a slight leak from the same place. Turned out to be a seal around a black electrical box next to the bonnet release grommet . You need to remove the scuttle panel, wipers to get to it and use some burtyl seal to do the job correctly

    As well as sealing it .. dont forget to clean all the dead leaves and crud out of the drain hole so that the area doesn't filll with water in the first place.
