Check carpet for damp patches, spare wheel well for trapped water, and the grille under the windscreen (you'll have to remove wiper arms) to ensure drain channels aren't bunged up with leaves etc.

Might be worth removing glove box and checking pollen filter.

I bought a couple of these from amazon. :think: £10 a pair. One on the dash and one on the parcel shelf. You can dry them out in the microwave and re-use.
