    Wet left foot

    During a rather quick drive this morning I suffered a wet left foot in my 182... cold water, clear and didn’t really smell of anything. Dribbled out near the footrest, but then tunnel carpet was wet for about a foot behind that. What do we think? Heater matrix or a more general leak?
