You need to open the sunroof fully and locate the small drain holes at each corner. They will be blocked with debris. Get a piece of welding wire or the likes and carefully unblock the hose by prodding and pouring water down it. When cleared the water shout run away freely.

I am getting a lot of water on drivers side floor board when it rains. I have cleaned the air vents below the cowl vent.


Could be leaves and detritus blocking the ventilation air box water drains.

Could be, if the car has a sunroof, the water drain from the sunroof trough. There is generally four drainpipes - running from each corner of the sunroof trough to each corner of the floor of the passenger compartment.
When I service a car I open the sunroof and pour a jug of water into the trough to ensure all four are clear. They sometimes become blocked, perished or dislodged from the outlets onto the ground.

If the water source isn't really easy to discover it is almost certain to be really difficult. With body water ingress there is hardly any happy medium.

Water floor after hard rain


If you have a sunroof I would start with looking at the drain tubes take a solo size cup of water and open the sunroof now pour the water in the tracks it should start to pour out in the front behind the wheel and in the back in front of the wheel if not the drain tubes my be clogged causing it to overflow the best way to clean out the tubes would be to use a hose our blow compressed air into the hose but not to hard as you could pop the hose out of its place

Water leak on drivers side in my 1999 Honda Civic DX Coupe


Go to the passenger side or driver side there you need to find the A/C drain tube make sure that it is draining outside and not in the compartment area.This drain hose tends to pop out, so when you have the A.C on you notice there is water draining out but in your case its going in thhe car.

Water leaks on passenger floor in my 97 honda civic


I have a 1997 Toyota Camry. Water was collecting on the front PASSENGER floor after a rain. I opened my sunroof and found the front drainage holes (about 1/8" diameter) in the corners of the track sunroof track. They looked clear. I poured a bottle of water in track and watched the result. Sure enough, water started dripping from the right ride of the glove box on to the floor. I started tearing out the interior panels to trace the leak. What I found is that if I poured the bottle of water REALLY slow into the sunroof hole = no leaks. But if I pour it too fast the small 1/8" hole cannot keep up and the track overflows! THAT is where the leak comes from in my car! If water overflows the track, then it makes its way down the column trim, around the glove box and on to the floor.

So I need to help the 1/8" sunroof hole drain faster. I took some 18AWG TFFN electrical wire and jammed it into the hole to help clean it out. I then removed the black plastic mud flap behind my front tire and blew out all of the leaves and rotted debris that where behind that flap. It was packed with junk! I poured more into the 1/8" hole and it seemed to drain quicker.

I hope this information helps others.

A leaking windscreen,door seal or window seal. Run a garden hose over your car and use baby powder to pin point where the water is in running from.

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

If you have a sunroof, the drain tube on the driver's side A-pillar is probably blocked or disconnected form the sunroof drain.

Water leak on fwd passenger side after every rain storm


If your car has a sunroof, there are drains from the front corners of the sunroof, and they drain down the sides of the windshield pillars, and then empty out on the ground.

What I would do is open the surnroof, and pour water into the front corners, and then oobserve where the water drains out. If you have a difference in water drainage between the left and the right sides, I would think that you may have loose sunroof drain. They commonly come loose at the sunroof corners. This will allow the water to pass down the windshield pillar, and onto the floor.

Also, I would check the condensate drain tube for blockage. Pull back the carpet, under the glove box, and fins a black hose that pokes thru the firewall. Pull it out, and see if it is blocked internally. If this tube is clogged, water will build up in the heater box, as the black tube is the drain for the heater box.

One of the two above solutions will cure your problem. I see both quite often.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance.
