Question about 1998 Toyota Celica

1 Answer

2002 Miata convertible passenger side floor wet after rain.

Passenger side floor wet after rain. Only the flat portion of the floor not high on the firewall or behind the seat. I suspect some debris may be blocking a drain but don't know where to locate these. Only 8k miles on the car just bought it and this is the first rain I encountered. Had a problem latching the passenger side roof but finally got a good even seal. No water observed on roof lip inside or on the windshield. Roof in good shape no cracks in top. Hope someone has a way to clean and locate drains so I can give that a shot.

    After discussing this with a few Miata owners found that the drains being plugged is a common problem. I got a long small rod and poked around until I got the rod through and heard water start to drain. Took a garden hose and flushed the drain carefully and did the same thing to the drivers side. This is such a common problem that after market vendors sell a 3 foot long thin bottle style brush to solve the flooding problem before it starts.

Go to a car wash with a good flashlight, and watch where the water comes from.

Make sure that the microswitches in the rear trunk are all depressed. There is one where the parcel shelf (the cover that covers the view of the trunk from the outside) sits on the left that is usually the problem make sure that it is sitting on the microswitch (pull down on the closest side to you so it pivots forward and sits on the microswitch. Then make sure that the latch on the left side (drivers side) of the rear that allows easier access to the trunk switches the microswitch there. now close the trunk and try the conv top. the parcel shelf, the rear access latch and i think the trunk switches need to be depressed for the top to work. I know at least the first two.

SOURCE: after rain passenger side floor of car is flooded

the water is most likely coming through the cowl and through the heater box to your floor. you would have to disassemble the cowl (plastic part between hood and windshield) and inspect the seal there.

This could be from a number of sources. The best thing to do is to wet it with a water hose in different segments until you find the water entry point.

Unsure about later models however on the early ones, look under the car where the sill is welded to the floor there is a lip hanging down ( where you put the jack ) . If you look along the join you will see slight rearward facing bumps in the panel pressings. These are the drains. Using a nail or piece of wire you can clear these ( make sure your sleves are rolled up to keep them from getting wet)
These are rear only , I suspect the water is coming from the back and running forward.
Good luck Marshall

Rear right passenger floor gets wet no rain


Question:Are you running your heater? If yes, your heater core is leaking. Its located behind the dash on the passenger side. Sorry to say, change it. You can do this yourself. Just a tight space to work, and hard on your patience.

2002 Honda Accord Wet Floor


most common problem is the a/c condensor tube is clogged and is under the car and needs to be cleared with compressed air. also the sunroof track has 4 drain tubes and the right front may be clogged or leaking. you can check that by pouring a cup of water down the right front drain tube in the sunroof track and see if water comes out by the right front wheel

Leaking roof under passenger seat


Have you cleaned out the drain tubes? There is a 'rain rail' underneath the rear lip, which diverts water off the top and down to tubes on each side. The tubes get clogged up with leaves and whatnot. You can use a coathanger to CAREFULLY clear the debris. Check out www.miata.net for more Miata information than you could imagine.

Happy Motoring!

Wet floors on passenger side after it rains.


Is it possible the water is actually coming from the A/C evaporator case, whose DRAIN IS CLOGGED ? The water produced by the A/C then leaks out of the case, down under the carpeting, then depending how vehicle is parked, can flow to the rear floors and carpet. Hope this helps

Wet rear floor


Have you by any chance jacked up the passenger side, or got vehicle on a hoist to make sure there isn't any plugs on the underside that may have fell out? They could be round or oval metal or rubber plugs, probably in that area.

Blower motor goes out every so often? Design flaw connected to the wiper motor???


could be that when it rains or is wet out that water is leaking into your car under the hood under the vent by the windshield wipers on the passenger side and instead of being filtered out its going into the car on the passenger side floor. (check to see if this is wet after a heavy rainfall) and causing a short and rusting it out. this happened with my 2002 grand prix just this year. I got a water resistor for like $3.50 from a local pontiac dealership/parts store and put it in. Its easy to install and it poured out today and my car didnt leak at all.
