    hi wullie and welcome.

    possibly the scuttle drain tubes are too short....a known fault on some 'sevel' vans.
    one drains onto the gearbox, the other onto the rear of the engine.

    look at each end of the panel, under the bonnet, for the tubes.

    simply replace (or extend them) with longer tubes to drain below the engine/gearbox.

    How old is the boxer?

    There are known design faults on the later boxer and ducato cabs with water leaking into the engine compartment.
    There are mods available which you can to pursue the dealer to fit, such as engine cover and scuttle mods.
    There is actually a Peugeot warning bulletin about. See this thread from another forum

    it.http://www.outandaboutlive.co.uk/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=14124&posts=2
