Hello, You may have a potential claim under your Car Insurance for Comprehensive which may have no deductible.

There is every potential for water damage to the components under the dash besides the rust of the metal dash framework.

Your windshield seal may be leaking and a simple removal and replacement of the seal by a Glass shop may fix your car. But there may be other wiring "boots" going through the firewall and those chassis seals may also leak.

You have a problem which does not necessarily have a bolt-on solution except possibly a worn door hinge pin allowing for a leak to run along the top of your door weatherstripping and into the dash on the drivers door jam.

There are a number of paste or tube type gasket sealants. But you would want something like the glass shops use. The fumes from some of the products are meant to be used under the hood and not inside the cabin where the people are.

Check with your insurance company, often Comprehensive does not raise your rates if you need to use it. Otherwise if you want to fix it yourself, look for water tracking. You could also position yourself under the dash and have a helper spray a garden hose on the car while you look for the water to enter.

SOURCE: rear floorboard behind driver set wet after rain

do you have a sun roof, if so start there, because there are two hoses at the back corners of the roof pan that allow water to drain, if they leak, they will soak the rear floorboards, and if not that check the door jam seals.(note that if the plugs on the floor are missing that will be verry hard not to have wet carpet)........let me know?

Does the vehicle have a sun roof? If that is the case the drain tube on the left front corner of the sun roof may have come unhooked.

SOURCE: 2002 Camry water on drivers side floor whenever it

There are three possibilities, the winshield seal is leaking, the door seal is defective or the door window seal is leaking, sometimes you can find out by having an assistant inside the car observe the areas mentioned while you spray the car with the pressure washer at the car wash.

SOURCE: water on passenger side floor whenever it rains.

You would have a leak. I would take it to a GM dealer. Could be coming from the windshield and leaking by the firewall.

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

Water leak driver floor board


You have to find the leak
Have a shop use their Evap Smoke Machine
Pressurize the cabin & see if smoke comes out
around the windshield,engine compartment,etc
Hate to run hose over the car, but you can see it come
in,so that is an option,with someone under the dash with
a light watching.
Check on internet for the issue on your vehicle
Call an auto glass place, for advice on what they solve

Rain leaks


NO, it is most likely getting in through the cowl vent area under the wipers. Normally the water drains out the inner fender, but if its clogged with leaves and pine needles, it wont drain and will fill up past the cool air intake and get into the cabin. I would pull the cowl vent grille and make sure the drains are not clogged.

Florrboard on drivers side stays wet on 2005 santa fe even when it hasn't rained in over a week losing coolant regularly


Sounds like your heater core has sprung a leak and needs replacing. Verify if the wetness is plain water or coolant. Engine coolant circulates through the heater core (just like a small radiator) and gives up a small amount of heat, which the blower fan picks up and blows out the heater vents. Replacing the heater core is quite easy, or a total nightmare, depending on manufacturer's design-when you have to remove the dash from the vehicle to get at the core-that's what I mean by a nightmare. Check a repair manual for your car to see how difficult the procedure is. Good luck.

Where would water intrusion come from on the driver side of truck?


Any chance it is connected to the drain for the air conditioner ? Usually a plugged drain will dump water on the passenger side floor.
There may also be a split in a seam in the firewall or cowl where water will seep into the interior over time from a previous rain.

I have a 2003 Volvo S60 that ends up with a wet carpet in front of the passenger seat whenever it rains (Seattle). Also, when I am driving and turning left or right at corners, I can hear water sloshing...


The drain for your A/C may be clogged causing the water to accumulate. You should be able to locate the drain from under the vehicle on the pasenger side, perhaps there is an accumulation of debri such as leaves for example. Also, sunroof drain may also be blocked. I can say I have seen this problem before, and its a good place to start. Good luck

If you have a wet seat then it is likely defective weather stripping around the window.

Try this. If the floor is dry, then it rains and the floor remains dry, only gets wet after a drive in the rain or on wet streets, you may have a hole somewhere.

Check for holes from missing rubber grommets or holes in the floorboard or firewall from rust. Check for any rust holes or missing rubber grommets under the car or on the firewall, anywhere water can splash up into the vehicle from driving in rain or running through puddles..

Check wet spots along the carpeting all the way up under the dash, if the wet spot is higher than the floor itself, you could be getting the water from splashing through puddles.

Any holes under the car or in the fenderwell even up on the firewall can cause this problem.

First check for any obvious signs of rust, if none are found then look for missing or defective rubber grommets.
