147 Water Leak, Advice needed?

Discussion in 'Alfa Romeo 147' started by Paul Woodsford, Aug 29, 2004.

  1. I have a 147 1.6TS Nov 2003 R hand drive.
    With the recent heavy rainstorms I have water coming into the Front
    passenger footwell via , it appears, the heater outlet.
    Where is the water drain for the heater air intake situated?
    I think this could be the cause although with the ferocity of some of the
    downpours it could just be too much rain overwhelming the system.

    I had a similar leak in the passengeer footwell of my RHD 147.
    Pressure washer found it rather than rain though.

    Garage looked at it and found a leak under the n/s wheel arch. Your's
    should still be in the manufacturers 24 month warranty. Get your
    dealer to water test it?

    Cheers

  3. Thanks for that PhillipS, I will get the dealers to check this out when it
    goes in for it's 12,000 mile service shortly.
