    Hi all ive been reading up on potential water leaks found in the early VE's.

    I have a April 07 Build HSV GTS and i have water pooling on the drivers side footwell. Ive been told my AC drain hose is not blocked and my heater core is fine. Any help would be appreciated. Ive been told it could be a grommet or a seal that has gone.

    Thanks.

    Check the throttle pedal plate on the fire wall for rust holes.

    So ive pulled what i can off the front where the wiper arms are, around the bottom of the brake booster the firewall seems very damp, got a mate to put a hose on the drivers side of the wind screen within 10 seconds i noticed water leaking through to cabin on the clutch / rest peddle on the ground. looks like its coming through beside the brake booster / passenger side of the steering column around there, could this mean its the firewall panel that could need replacing?

    It could be. More investigation required.

    So took a further look around the clutch pedal, it appear when the clutch is pressed in the plate holding it moves. Either the plate affixed to the firewall is broken or loose which could be causing the rubber to move / unseal could this be the problem?

    Thanks.

    Could be?
    Might need to remove the insulation blankets from the panels and inspect it.
