    Thanks Lofty, hopefully it'll work once i find the leak, there is a lower windscreen rubber seal that goes on these, just a rubber jobby that slips over the end of the windscreen but they want £35 quid for that, might just clean the old one and chuck some of this tiger seal in and wipe off the excess. It's below the scuttle panel so not worried if it looks hideous or not.lol

    Thankfully no sunroof and aerial seal looks good, one less thing to leak!, It's definitely coming from the bottom of the windscreen but it's right behind the centre of the dash where the radio and heater ducts and matrix are. Access is not that great so have to wait for a set of stereo keys to arrive now so i can get the head unit and 5 disc changer out as well as the heater controls before removing the dash. There is a big length of insulating foam that runs from the windscreen down into the foot wells along the length of the firewall which has absorbed a fair bit of water, hopefully i can dry this out and salvage this as i can't find it listed on peugeot service box. Cut some new underlay i had in the shed and the carpet has cleaned up nicely, so saved a few quid on that.
    At least the repairs so far have been relatively cheap fixes but just time consuming ones. Just the judder to look into further after interior sorted. Beginning to think that is either engine mount or fuel related as it happens when i take foot off accelerator it's like a jerking sensation. Other than that just a set of boot lifters needed and a good paint work detail on the outside.

    Win win there then mate. Just check everything when you remove it for signs of rust as it will help pinpoint where water is entering. Dry it all out will always help just the smell can be a problem though. The Judder could be fuel filter or throttle cable related .

    Yeah i think it could well be the fuel filter as the throttle is electronic type, i did try and find the filter to replace but many say that it's a gauze type fitted in the tank. I couldn't see one under the car anyway.

    That's crazy would that mean it's not a serviceable part (changeable when needed)

    Yup, there are some configurations which have an inline filter, but need to get under car and check when it is a bit drier.

    Definitely no inline filter, found the culprit of the jolting when slowing today, took it out for a drive both yesterday and today and have put it down to engine mount, has play on the rear lower mount, when you drive feels like a rubber band action when you slow like the car is being dragged forward. Got in the zafira after driving it and it feels like a race car in comparison to this french pile of junk. Also needs a new back box as that is rotted away.
