soggy 560sl

It has been a wierd spring..over 12inches above the normal rainfall..

Last week I drove the 560sl. It rained and rained. After a few days of rain I noticed that my drivers side floorboard was soaked. I did have my soft top on the car. It is new with new seals, however while driving I noticed a periodic drop of water come in from the window..but only when driving.

Is there a way for this water to be entering from beneath the car?

Not sure were they are at, but you better check your drains in the air intake cowl. It sounds like that rainwater is coming in. I believe that the flap should also close when the car is shut off, make sure that is not sticking open. If the drain is plugged it can come into the car.

Good luck,
