    Hey guys,

    I've noticed the last week when I get in the car I can smell a slight damp odour.

    It has been raining a lot here this week but all the seals look pretty dry. The front windscreen seal is loose since my respray so I've used little pieces of tape (yeah yeah) to keep it on until I get around to reattaching it but it looks dry around there.

    I've quickly looked at my heater core..anywhere in particular they leak from?

    Thanks
    Clacks

    Do a search on this forum for "boot leak" you'll most probably find that your leak and smell will be around the back of the car.

    It's common for most commodores to have a leak into the boot, normally caused by the rear 1/4 windows or tail lights.

    It can also be caused simply by your wet feet/boots draining water onto the carpet - if you get in/out of your car 6 times a day with wet boots it probably equals half a cup of water. But the boot also is the prime suspect.
