Baled out the spare wheel well.
Removed the rear seats (saloon) and the rubber/foam underlay.
Removed the boot liners both sides and at the rear, also the trim around the rear seat back opening.
Brought everything inside the house to dry out.

Next job will be to remove the front seats and carpet and investigate how this rain water is getting into the sills.

Had to do the same thing back end of last year. Front and rear Passenger side had about a cm of water under the carpet. It turned out to be leaking from the rear window. I used a product called Captain Trolley's creeping crack cure as recommended on here. Worked a treat and not had a single drop of water get in since using it. Carpet took a good couple of weeks to fully dry out. One tip for you, If you have a carpet cleaner, get a small flexy tube for the end and put it inside the holes at the bottom of the seat bars as they fill up with water. You think you have got all of it and the next day there is another load in there. It comes out of them. You will see what I mean when the seats and carpet are out.

I also had an afternoon with the Captain, removed the rear window trim, cleaned out 22 yrs of muck, got it all nice and clean then gave the lower window clips four coats of Mr Tolleys! Trim refitted with some new clips (Note the new clips from Rimmers are not as good as the originals) Lets see what the next rainstorm brings?

Sold the seats, and stripped a few parts from it......... It was raised in Scotland, so it was only going to be a matter of time before it started going ginger

Another ZTT bites the dust, It'll be off to the crushers in a week or 2

Many thanks to the forum members for the how to's and advice that got me out of the brown stuff over the years.

Fixed the sunvisors. Fiddly! I bought a replacement drivers side, but it was grubby, so I swapped in the vanity lights Hmmmm.
Passenger side clip needed a plastic Weld and some glue. Happy days!
Whipped the ECU out to send to the excellent Russ.

I took apart the number plate light holder to fix the non working lamp. All better now.

Of course, I lost a screwit inside the boot lid. How do I resolve? Any way to get it back? Where can I buy more? Or something better?!

Buy a 7 quid telescopic magnet to retrieve it. Also very useful if you drop things in the engine bay
