Interior Carpet Getting Wet

I just purchased a 2003 Honda Accord and have discovered carpet getting wet and can not find problem. Took it to window glass specialist and no leaks in windshield or rear glass. No leaks from drain lines in sunroof. Did notice water inside door around interior rocker on right front. However it was raining along with water on weather strip on same side front. Looked and no water showing on drivers side around weather strip or inside on rocker. Carpet also wet on right rear but no water showing around door or rocker in rear.

    I have a 2003 Honda Accord 2dr LX and have been taking my car in for the past year and they still have not fixed the problem. Every single time I take it in they tell me they can't figure it out? It only leaks when it rains in the drivers side rear floor-board. Its currently in the shop again the third time in the past 2 months! Any assistance please!!!

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.

I would have suggested the car wash so now you need to check the weather strip/seals on your windows and doors. Wet spots close to the center console or outer edge could even be a leak of some sorts coming through the a/c ductwork. Get a good light, waterhose/water over top of your vehicle to simulate situation and plenty of patience and tools to remove paneling to access ducts from kick panel area if door/window provide no source of your leak. Hope this gives you a good point to start looking from. Anymore questions let me know

When it rains the floormat in the rear gets wet but not from wat

You'll have to pull up the carpeting, but it sounds like there is a hole in the body somewhere that needs to be sealed.

2001 Accord EX - Front passenger side carpet is soaking wet

The drain on the a/c evaporator gets clogged, you have to raise the car on a lift, or get under the car, on the right side of the car under the fire wall you will see a black rubber hose ( about a 1/2 inch in size) pointing down, you will need to blow compressed air in the hose to clear the blockage.
