Hi,
 my '73 Tii has develoved a slight leak.
It seems to be coming down through the bonnet vents near the heater box, behind the centre console and to the drivers side footwell. Car is RHD. Only happens when it rains and the car is parked. Any ideas? Is there a small drain pipe in there somewhere that may have come loose? Or perhaps the seal around the heater has deteriorated and letting water through?
Thanks in advance,
Tony

One at each side of where exactly? There look like there could be space for 2-3 plugs of some sort but there is nothing rubber there
Thanks
