If it has a sunroof check the drain holes arn't blocked. There is one hole in each corner of the sunroof

It would be best if you could locate the leak and then tackle it.
Check the rubber around the doors and rear windows too.

I hope you find and fix it

i bought a landrover discovery real cheap becuase the owners couldnt stop the carpet getting wet. they thought they had sun roof problems so they paid for both to be fitted with new seals , new windscreen too, and door seals. but it was the airconditioner drain tube blocked and backing up and wetting the carpet.l took me 20 seconds to fix. you masy be lucky to have the same problem, look for a small rubber dovvilacky thingamy on either side of the gearbox and sweeze it to break the mud and crap that blocks it. hope it is your proplem.

Hey mate, check out this thread: showthread.php?t=67290

Hi guys,
My Mu used to leak around the sunroof winder thingy. The gasket seals between all the bits was shot. Fixed it with some RTV sealer run around where gaskets used to be.
My drain holes were working fine, but lots of rain was too much for them, esp. when parked facing up hill so only rear holes were in use. It would pool up around the mechanism and leak in.

No probs now tho.

Cheers
