Hello all!
So recently with all the rain I've been getting a lot of water on the inside of the front and back window? Every morning I keep having to de ice the front and scrape at the inside and when it rains alot the inside is covered in water droplets. Is this a normal or common thing or is something leaking somewhere? Originally I thought it was just condensation but it doesn't seem to happen to any other window?

Thank you for reading ^^

Hi

I found I got more water on the rear window when parked nose down. It felt s bit wet in the boot so I had a good look for damaged seals or blocked drainage channels but nothing seemed particularly bad.

Eventually it sorted itself out, so I never got to the bottom of it.

But check the door and tailgate seals, the drain channels but it's not normal for that much moisture in the car.

Hello!
My car is parked nose down but I get more on the front than the back? When the weekend comes I will have a quick look at the seals and maybe spray silicone on them. I already need to find a small oil leak too.
Thank you for the reply! Ill try parking it nose up too out of curiosity.
