Trimdoner got there before me -- I too was going to say you have to take everything else out first. However I wonder if you can do what I did with our Multipla when we had the same problem. I was able to remove just the kick trims at the bottom of the door openings and then could lift the edges of the carpets and blow a heater underneath. As DoctorChris says its not the carpet (thats polypropelyne
The recognised way to find a leak is to sit inside the car whilst someone fires a pressure washer at it. In your case this would mean firing the stream of water all around the drivers door under the floor onto the bulkhead and into the area below the windscreen. Probably best done with the carpet peeled back. Then you could go back to Mr. Smug the service manager and tell him where the leak is. If you are anywhere near Sunderland I can supply the pressure washer but you can sit in the car
Heh thats what Im about its either a very smallslow leak or.....they fixed it when they changed the door seal but the carpet hasnt dried out yet - although I dont go with that idea. Im trying to get the thing dry first so I can then do as you suggest give it a right good dousing and try to spot the ingress so I can go back and say See There it is look
Dash out front doors off (yes really) and remove the dash supporting bar cage. Bobs your uncle
I saw a panda in the dealers a couple of years back where they were removing the heater to replace the actuator used by the climate control (I suspect you have the same issue) I looked horrendous -- as MEP says both front doors completely removed and I seem to recall the front seats too. It really looks as if they start by putting the heater in the middle of the factory and then building the whole car around it
I found some plastic retainers loose behind the clutch operating arm rubber sleeve. Removing these did not help. 11 The unit suffers from a rough running when not on load from 50-65mph almost like dirty fuel. Beside that the car has impressed me so when I got rid of my Mondeo ST TDCI I only need a small car as my comute dropped from the 900 mile round trip to the office to 40 I got my own panda
traypower socket. The central trim around the gearstick is only held on with 4 nuts btw. Then put a cut into the carpet on the left hand side to hide the wires as they came out under the passenger seat. I used the rear most bolt of the centre trim as my grounding point after sanding a bit of the paint off. Quite a straight forward job really and no harder than changing the speakers on the panda.

For those who dont know what their calipers look like then here they are. This is a brand new disc. The caliper mount requires the removal of the bottom bolt and it will swing (bash or lever) up wards out
