From what I'm led to believe & understand, yes they are.

However, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

Mr Turbo
We go anywhere & everywhere together as nothing's too hard in a Forry
Some call it Man V's Wild ...but here... We call it Camping

Not so sure about that mate.

In the engine bay, it could get swamped by a surge of water. In the footwell, that cannot happen, and the door seals should keep most water out of the vehicle in any case - other than being submerged; in which case none of it does much good - let the waters take the vehicle, and hope to live to recover from one's insurer!
