Hi,
 my '73 Tii has develoved a slight leak.
It seems to be coming down through the bonnet vents near the heater box, behind the centre console and to the drivers side footwell. Car is RHD. Only happens when it rains and the car is parked. Any ideas? Is there a small drain pipe in there somewhere that may have come loose? Or perhaps the seal around the heater has deteriorated and letting water through?
Thanks in advance,
Tony

there should be 2 rubber bungs one at each side these are the drain holes make sure there not blocked also while your in there make sure theres no rot if they have been blocked..

One at each side of where exactly? There look like there could be space for 2-3 plugs of some sort but there is nothing rubber there
Thanks
