    Hi can anyone tell me if this a common problem with this model? Unfortunately it has been like this since Christmas so it is a little musty in there. Just in case it makes any difference it was a BSM car. Many Thanks:ROFLMAO:

    I have spent the day stripping the seat, carpet etc and have found water is leaking behind the servvo/brake master mounting panel. Has anyone managed to remove this panel? Just wondered how easy it was to take it out to re-seal if? Any advice gratefully received. Jason

    OK For yourself and others that may be reading I have just spent an afternoon fixing a problem with wet carpets on the driver side of a manual 2003 Corsa. After spending £50 on a garage to give it “three coats of good looking at” I decided to have ago myself and the problem is relatively straightforward:

    Down by the driver's left foot there is a recess where the steering column goes through the bulkhead. If you place some kitchen paper in that recess and empty two watering cans of water over the windscreen... wait for the water to seep through...if the paper is wet after 5 mins you will probably see the drips of water dripping down from where the clutch cable goes through the bulkhead (this is directly above the recess with the paper stuffed into it). Now if you look under the bonnet (under the plastic grill between the bonnet and the screen) you may see leaves etc collected around the clutch cable (just below the brake fluid reservoir). The garage had cleared the bullhead drains but the water still needs to flow past the obstruction around the clutch cable in order to get to the drain. Clear this lot away and you should be sorted and water will stop seeping along the clutch cable into the car.

    Hope it helps

    Yep I had the same problem on my Combo C van. Just to be sure I lifted the servo and smeared the area with silicone. Vauxhall have admitted to me that the whole seal around the servo plate is a known problem but would charge me a day's labour to put right. You can remove the master cylinder from the servo without disconnecting the brake pipes. Then remove the servo.
