How can I stop water leaking into the footwell of my car?

The passenger side seal on my Toyota Carina E is letting water drip in and flood the footwell. Where can I get a replacement seal for this? I have tried replacing with a generic seal off eBay but it is too small and allows water in from the top.

You should be able to get one from a Toyota dealer, but this could be expensive. Try ringing around a few scrap yards to see if they have any good secondhand items. Remember when fitting the new item that they key to success is preparing the surface. In the meantime, you could try and track down the leaking area and use some silicone sealant to replace the leak. Remember to either leave the door open or use wax paper to avoid glueing the door shut.

Relaxed, amiable drive. Decent build and capable of high mileage. The 1.6 and 1.8 have a good blend of performance and economy. Curiously felt better in 2015 than it did back in 1992.
