Question about 2001 Honda Integra Type
Rain water is getting in under the dash and wetting the driver's feet
I just solved this problem this morning on my Blazer, rain water from the windshield was dripping down the firewall and following a cable into the drivers side floorboard leaing a puddle of water after a hard rain. I using a little silicone to plug the hole solved it. Yea dry floor after monthes of mystery.

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.

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.

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.
