Hi, I own a 14 plate Antara diamond which I bought new and love the car.
Today I went to hoover car and after lifting front 2 mats found both frontfootwell's to be soaking wet.
We have had a lot of thunder storms and rain the past few weeks and its been nearly 3 weeks since I last lifted the mats to clean them and the floor was dry then.
Went to my local Vauxhall dealer as its still under warranty, they asked if i'd had a windscreen fitted lately which I had in October last year, they said they have never had any problems with antaras leaking water into footwells and said it would more than likely be a leaking screen.
I lifted front carpets and removed the foam insulation underneath to dry out, I then removed wipers and scuttle panel and tried a hose round screen, all appeared ok and the gully drains appear to be blocked, when the hose was turned on the bottom corner of the screen the water was coming in the back of dashboard at drivers side and running down to footwell.
Auto glass are coming to check screen on Friday but I was just wondering if theres anything I'm missing or should investigate further.

Did resealing your screen solve the problem

I thought Autoglass offered a lifetime warranty whilst you own the car, so it should be surely their responsibility to repair the leak. Richy

Be interesting to know who you got on. We had a screen fitted just recently.
Im.not aware of water ingress issues on this model. Certainly not known for this issue.
