    Sunroof or Windscreen leak?

    So I went out to the car the other day after it had rained heavily, started driving and strangely my left arm became rather wet.

    Misfire and cut out when damp/wet

    Hi all, I recently took my car out just after it had rained heavily and the roads were still wet. After about 1/2 a mile the car started to hesitate and then cut out. It restarted immediately. I decided to head back home at the next roundabout. It cut out a further 3 times on the way home. A...
