Jaguar Repair/1977 xj6 cabin water leaks
So pulled dash and interior to view windshield seal. No rust no watersign.
Did find leakage from pedal box on drivers side and evidence of a lesser leak from the platform the battery sits on.
Also when I pulled the back passenger driver side interior door panel noticed evidence of moist swelling/deformation of the (cardboard?) backing panel.
Intend to check all doors now.
Recommend a fix for the engine compartment?
The door panels/door I imagine would be the door/ window seals?
I have noticed that problem in all the XJ-6 cars and as best I can tell it is the flat shelf area at the rear corners under the hood (bonnet). My own car leaks in on the floor boards when I park the car outside and it rains but only if I park it so the front of the car is higher then that rear. I tried parking with the rear of the car higher (sloped driveway) then the front and it does not leak then. I have not corrected mine yet but it is obvious the drip rail around the hood is collecting water and that is draining inside the peddle area.
