Were you driving the car in this weather?

If so lift the rear carpet and check in the corners where the rear foot well 
and trans tunnel meet the seat base - there's a metal blanking plug each 
side of the trans tunnel. I found that one had been 'popped' by the PO of my 
car  - don't know how he did it, suspect that he lowered the car on to 
something after jacking it.
