    This last week driving home from the eclipse I drove through a few rainy areas. After about 10 mins driving through the rain I started to feel water dripping on my feet. Feeling around I could tell water was coming in somewhere on the driver side. At the next supercharger I took a few pictures of where I think it was coming out of. Its on the area below the steering wheel/above the driver's feet. In the picture its not very wet anymore as I had been drying the area off to see where it would drip out of.

    Has anyone had issue before? I'm calling the service center on it but wanted to know if others had this issue as well.

    Not super related but I found when first opening the FWD in the rain that water dripped in the centre. Lucky we have the 5 seater so it just dripped on the plastic mat

    The X was in the service center a week ago now and they were unable to duplicate the leak issue. I'm not sure if they took anything apart under the dash as to where I described we were getting the water in at. For now I will just keep driving it and if it happens again I'll bring it on back.

    My seal was replaced and it helped a lot.
