    Last night I went to pick up my son at the train station. It was raining. Left the Carport in a dry car. Less than 1 km down the road I felt water coming down on my right ankle. This occurred repeatedly during the 8 km drive and it wasn't dripping, it was poring whenever I turned a corner. The water came from under the frontend of the dash.

    This winter my carpet in the was constantly wet/soaked - Tesla suggested the entry point was the inlet for cabin air under the hood - and they made some adjustments. Weather conditions changed and I am nor sure wether or not the ajustment was effective. In any case - This time the entry point definitely isn't the air inlet.

    So - anybody with similar experience and any suggestions as to the entry point ?
