Are you certain it is rain water? It could be condensation from the A/C coil that fails to drain out of the drain pan, or possibly coolant from a leaking heater core. If you are certain it is rain water, depending upon the age of the vehicle, and possibly some other things, here are the possible options:
Leaking door gasket.
Leaking windshield seal due to rust
Leaking windshield seal due to improper installation
Leaking windshield seal due to acoustic (sound) over pressure (if you have extreme sound system with heavy bass)
If you have a sunroof, if the drain hose comes down the passenger side door column, it could be leaking into the passenger compartment rather than drain through the floor pan.
Hi. The obvious answer would be to keep it out the rain. LOL. You should check the drains for the area that the wipers are in, often these are blocked causing the area to fill with water and thus entering the passanger compartment.
Try cleaning out the small holes between your rocker panels and the sub-structure. They can be barely perceptible, but if you look carefully under the car, they are actually little channels that direct the water flow out of the car that leaks on during heavy rains. Use a coat hanger or other wire to re-open them and let the water out. If not, the floor will continue to get wet until the rockers rust out. Other causes may be seal leaks behind the glass, or trunk seal leaks especially in sedans.
My Getz is also having similar problem. I have thrice got water test done from Hyundai server center. After 2nd test they put some sealants underbody and return the car, but still water was leaking in. 3rd time water test, hyundai said its all fine, no problem but still problem persists. It happens when it rains only, so I dont suspect air-con filters or radiator problems. Water pool is created in driver side footwell only. During heavy rain, I tried to troubleshoot but couldnt find any fault point from where water might be leaking inside. Its second year, I have running into this problem, creating stinking smell inside the car due to wet mats. Looks like I need to do away with my car.
the spacer bar holding the passanger seat in place is cracked/rusting? If so you will need to get the section cut out and a new plate fabricated to fit and welded in. Check the door seals are intact as well, the water might be coming in there down to the lowest point.
The most common place for it to come in when its raining is in from the Rear wheel (the welded seam is split) or around the top and running around inside under side of seat. Or if it comes in when stationary then it the door rubber is not tight enough.
"weep holes" are normally on the bottom edge of the door, and will sometimes get pluged up with dirt. these can easily be cleaned out with a toothpick or ice pick. i doubt that this is your problem though. I am thinking that the drian hole to your heater box may be pluged. I suspect that it is your passanger side that fills up. The drain for this is normally found on the fire wall on the passanger side. You can clean this out by running a wire up the hole or tube and try to get the gunk out- be carefull that you don't go wild doing this as you can run the wire up to far and to hard and poke a hole in your heater core. If this is not the case- take a good look at your door seal and make sure that you dont have any gaps that would allow water in.
