I had a similar problem, the cabin flooded and destroyed the computer under the seat. UK car 2002 2.4 v6. There seem to be several spots to check. Remove the grommet in the metal work under the battery to allow water to drain. Check plastic strip on the lower edge of the windscreen is clean and fitting snugly against the glass. Clean out old leaves etc. And check that all is sound around the aircon filter. Good luck.

Wow I thought they would have fixed this on the newer body style. My old 2000 A6 had the same issue. There is a drain in front of the bulkhead that gets blocked, in my case by pine needles from my tree. I used a coat hanger to clear it and then cleaned it every couple of months and no more drowning carpet. It used to be next to the battery(which they moved to the trunk) under the windshield wiper motor. I haven't checked the exact location on my 2005 but good to know it's still an issue.

2009 Chevy HHR water in floor passenger side front and back after heavy rain car was just sitting all day not driving where did 2 inches of clear water in floor come from,


The high-level intake at the base of the windshield directs rain water through channels behind the door pillars to the street. If the channels become clogged with leaves and debris, the rain water can leak inside.

What causes water to floor jeep after hard rain?


The water leaks inside through the firewall in the cowl beneath the windshield wipers. Look up underneath the dash from the floor with a light. If I can't get to the leak I pour a liquid sealer into the cowl in that area on a DRY day. It might take a few tries to seal it.

Front windshield is leaking above passenger side


so if i were you i would be checking drain plug or drain opening in front of wind shield. probably it is under plastic grill next to wipers. it transfers the collected rain water infront of windshield and direct it to ground. if it is clogged flooded water can drain into cabin.

I have water on the floor on the passenger side of ny 98 town car and i don't know where it came from or how to prevent it from happening again


did you notice the water after a rain? or was it dry?

the weatherstripping around the door may be damaged. inspect for tears, missing sections, detatched sections, use a garden hose and spray aroun the door seal to see if there are any leaks. also spray around the window to see if that's leaking.

are you sure it's water and not engine coolant? the heater core may be leaking. it is located on the passenger side under the dash. is the coolant low?

there may be a hole in the floor

Water leak on the passanger side of a 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport


The first place I would look is the floor board caps. Make sure one or more of them aren't pushed up, allowing water to enter the cabin. Also, because your defroster is probably on while it's raining, make sure the A/C drain plug isn't clogged. It's a small rubber fiting that sticks out from inside the firewall, behind the engine. Simply pull it out and clean it. When you pull it out, you might be surprised to see water coming out of the hole!

Just a couple things to check. I hope this helps! :)

2 inches of water every time it rains only on my passenger side


Water is probably from the fresh air intake located just under the right plastic cowl (lower windshield reveal molding). We see this often in our shop. To access the fresh air intake, remove the right windshield wiper and then remove the screws fastening the cowl to the car body. Remove the right cowl. Just above the rectangle shaped fresh air intake (& cabin filter) should be a bulb shaped strip (approx 12" long). All too often, this strip comes off and no longer diverts water. Glue the strip back onto the firewall above the fresh air intake using weatherstrip adhesive. Reattach parts that you removed and now the water should be diverted to either (or both) side(s) of the cabin filter. Good luck
