Even the water is in back carpet,The problem is under your hood, there is a rubber that guides the water out under hood by windshield, When it gets gets plugged with whipper wheel, leaves etc, lift yours up and clean the debris out of it so that the water can drain, Then your mystery soaked carpet issue will be resolved.

Look for rust holes, missing drain plugs, in the floor pan, under the car, spray when driving also comes up off the road and tires, there are a number of points of entry, seat mounnts transmission mounts
not really a solution, just something to check

The pipe has come off its connection, push the drivers seat fully back and kneel on the ground beside the seat. Stick you head in the footwell as far as you can and look to the right (drivers side) past the back of the fusebox. You'll see a few inches of clear plastic pipe protruding from under the carpet which connects to a nipple mounted on the inner side panel of the car via a right angled black rubber pipe. On mine the right angled pipe had come off the nipple. Push it back on and all is well until it freezes again. Cable tie is one answer.

How to clean wet carpet in a car atfer a flood. this happen on yesterday in portsmouth, va. We had a storm which resulted in flooding, power outages, and trees falling down. water gotten in my car because...

You can hand shampoo it using clean water then hit it with a shop vac or other powerful wet/dry machine. It will eventually dry out. The problem is that moisture and odors will lay under it. You can take the whole carpet out of the car yourself and use a carpet cleaner, letting it fully dry before reinstalling. Generally this will require removing seats, consoles, and interior trim. If you are not experienced at this and don't have the proper tools, it can be a time consuming chore.

Otherwise contact a car/truck stereo installation shop. I find these folks are reasonable to pay for removal and reinstallation of the carpet and may also cheaply clean it for you.

Lastly you may just get a whole new carpet, look on ebay, and stuff that in there.

Water leaking into 2005 Camry 6 cyl under carpet drivers side.

I think that I can help you. It sounds like your drain-tube is plugged up. Get in the passenger side, and pull the carpet back from under the glove box. Look for a black rubber pipe that goes from a black box, and pokes thru the firewall, on the passenger side. Remove the hose from the box, and have a container ready to catch water. If water comes out of the black box, your drain hose is plugged up. Clean out the clog, and you will be golden.

Interior Carpet Getting Wet

It sounds like a plugged drain line from the air conditioner. Most cars now run in the a/c mode whenever u turn on the climate control (even when heat is on). The passenger side front is where it would be wet, and the carpet and carpet pad act like a sponge and will soak up the water. Let me know how u make out.

Strong Diesel Smell inside HJ Turbo Diesel Landcruiser

Since you didnt notice any change in the performance of your engine, ill presume there's nothing wrong with your fuel injectors.
look for moisture around your gas tank cap, the hose and clamps going down the tank, around the fuel gauge sending unit of your tank. have your fuel line checked from the tank to your fuel injection pump, give particular importance around the connections of your fuel filter, fuel pump, and the return hose from your fuel injection going back to your tank.
Diesel do emit strong hazardous odors that may stick on carpets inside your car.
