Does sound like a badly fitted screen. Or is it the original screen with some perished seal?

Reminds me of a member on here a few years ago who had a sneaky leak from a badly fitted replacement screen that led to massive electrical damage, massive repairs and a car that never got completely reliable again.

Hi guys, just a quick update, last night we had rain and boy did we have rain right through until this morning. I just went out to check the status of the issue and the passenger well is bone dry, not a single drop so the tape is doing the trick, as I say it cant be seen as it is black so I am now 110% moved to apply that clear seal when we get the next dry day. So, this is not a screen seal issue as suggested, it is a seal between the screen and the scuttle housing cover. Its a really poor design fault that has angst so many owners, I am so relieved that my car is now water tight, its been a huge concern to me for 2 weeks now.
Not read the thread properly, but I posted sometime back about when I had my windscreen replaced the fitter dragged the guide pin through the 'glue', thus allowing water into the passenger side............

Another replacement windscreen fitted very carefully sorted the issue

Hi, I have 2014 sportbrake bought from Stratstone 14 months ago and had the same problem with water in the passenger footwell, I ahev now solved the problem, if anyone would like a resolve let me know as it is a VERY annoying issue.
I have the same problem, and it got into the ECU under the passengers seat and it burnt out, have had to buy a replacement, at a cost of £770.00, and £150.00 to have it programmed to my car, but have taken it out as I still can’t solve the waterproblem,so if you could help, it would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance.
