    Mine seems to have misted up on the front screen again this morning.
    Aaaaarrrrrr!
    Hope it’s the opposite side to pollen filter under scuttle panel that’s clogged up. Fingers crossed. Bloody cars!!

    Agreed. These cars are getting old now, so you have to expect a few issues here and there. .....You don't shoot your nan just because she pisses herself every now and then.

    Sucks. Getting something more exiting or more laid back?

    I got something less powerful, and less economical - makes perfect sense, not!
    Mid life crisis time hit, and I felt the need for a two seater convertible, so have bought an MX5 Sport lol. It does handle well, but am having to get used to being without a turbo and oodles of torque - the MX5 needs to be revved to get the performance. It does sound nice though. I'll probably get over it in a year and come back to something more sensible

    So in no order are all the leaks
    Nearside passengers door
    Offside drivers door
    pollen filter - scuttle
    electrical connector box - scuttle
    bonnet cable grommet - scuttle

    Things to note, scuttle panel absolutely does not clip back into the channel and is bowed out across most of its length therefore probably needs replacing
    The pollen filter "lid" is cable tied to the scuttle panel as the mounting points are broken.

    I took all this apart about three years ago to flush out the windscreen washer hoses and haven't had any issues with the ill-fitting panel. One of the two pins fell out when I put it back together, and the other one was already pretty deformed. Even with this there's been no water ingress, so with any luck you should be ok.

    Sure it’s not a build up of standing water behind the dash that hasn’t totally been absorbed back into the air.
    Which will produce steamed up front screen still??

  18. I am so sorry this is not sorted, can you not put something (talk powder or dye or water color etc) in the area and then soak the car to see if that is problem.
