Just yesterday,my mate noticed his feet were wet in the passenger footwell..lifted the mats and underneath the carpet was saturated.

Doesn't sound good or a typical problem, has the windscreen been replaced, it should have an Alfa logo on it if it's original

I've had a small amount of water drip into the passenger footwell. Not soaking but eough to make any papers etc left there, go a bit damp.

Someone told me it was a condensing pipe dripping and something to do with the air con, try turning it off for a while, put some paper down and see if anything drips onto it.

Check all the drain holes as well. Lift up the bonnet and stood in front of the car look in the right corner where the black insert is by the hinge. Pull it out and there is a drain hole in there that sometimes get sh1t up with leaves and things.

That's caused people a problem in the past for 156 owners. Can't be arsed going out to look at my 147 to see if it's the same .

Hey Gippo!

Run the car without aircon on for over a week. The first couple of days you might get a few drops, due to moisture still being in the system.

Then try a week with the aircon on all the time.

ASt the end of the week, place some paper in the footwell and when you reverse in the morning you should see quite a few droplets.

If its that, then its a condensing pipe thats been caught/ nicked behind the dash!

Dash off job I'm afraid!
