Question about 1995 Mazda Protege

1 Answer

Water is leaking into the driver's floor, no where else and we think it's from either the windshield or the fire wall..not wet on the inside of the doors, seats, etc. Have you ever heard of this problem? It's a1999 mazda and am sure it would cost a mint to take to the dealership to repair. Any suggestions? Thanks, Susan

Why has water started leaking on driver side floor in front of brake pedal?

Could be heater leaking, especially if it smells like antifreeze.
Also could be front windshield seal leaking. Or some seal

Water leaks

Have your windshield gasket checked. When it rains, and if there is a small hole in the gasket, water will travel around the edges and down the inside. It will flow behind the dash and finally onto your floor

My front passenger side floor gets soaking wet when it rains and the car does not have to be moving...had windshield and sunroof checked for leaks and their

Not an easy fix.first start by removing trim panels at passenger side,its easier if you remove the seat,could be the drainage hose in fire wall at heater box that is clogged,pour water into vent opening at bottom of windshield and see if water is leaking at firewall at glovebox.if not then the side panels need to be removed and possably a body grommet or a body weld might be the will be able to use a water hose to find the leak.allso check the door and window weatherstripping.

Floor board wet drivers side. No drain tube for ac condensor. Not losing radiator water. Ac condensor not draing to outside. No tube on firewall. 4.2 dohc model

all of dodge models have a drain tube you'll find it over the rack n pinion on the right side passenger but you have to see when does the water comes in the floor board, when you use the AC or when it rains if it's the AC then it's you drain if it's when it rains then you have to check for leaks on your windshield or fire wall

You will also smell antifreeze/Prestone Sweet smell if the heater core is leaking and the windshield will steam up in cold winter not to mention the obvious coolant loss. i would think if it's water, unless you are using water in the cooling system, then it could be caused by the AC when it's on. This is normal for the hoses to have moisture on them and you will see it on the ground underneath the car when the AC is running.
