Hi Archiearaga,

You should probably repair the leak in the windshield, or have the entire windshield replaced.

SOURCE: passenger side leak under dash board

Ok take off the windshield wiper arms, then remove the plastic piece under the wipers below the windshield, there is a tray under there and some drain holes, you may have to remove some more plastic pieces once you remove the one below the windshield (some models are slightly different) clear out all the tree leaves and pine needles and such from the tray there are drain holes in the enter, and on each end push a long flexable rod down carefully or compressed air really works the best this is you problem it needs to be done every few years or more often if you park under trees.
If this information is helpful please give me a fixya! Rating , Thank you, Randy

SOURCE: Rain water leak

Yes Ive had this happen to my Toyota corrola and my dodge there are 2 different reasons why this is happening 1 of them it depends on if you have a sun/moon roof if so theres a vent in there so if any water or anything goes in it reroutes it too the outside of the car if its cloggeed water will spill into the car like that and just leave puddles the second thing is if you have it parked outside with trees all around theres vents up on the hood where the windsheild meets the hood they clog up so if you look along the back firewall which is under the hood all the way in the back theres a hole that gets clogged you need to clean that out and the easiest way to do that is get someone with a air compressor and blow air in that holke to push it all out it should fix all your water problems and if you have any questions let me know ill be glad to help, also please rate me.

SOURCE: my 2005 taurus has started getting a pool of water

It could be that the windshield seal has a leak beneath the cowl. Also, pools of water on the floorboard may be coming from your heater/air conditioner condenser. Check the cabin air filter for wetness, too.
Can you see if the water is on the firewall inside the passenger compartment? You might pull the carpet clips to lower it so you can spot the source of the leak.

If these checks don't pan out, let me know. Maybe we can do more troubleshooting.

SOURCE: Driver's side windshield wiper stopped working.

Hello, I would say that is exactly what has happened. If you can move the wipers with no resistance it's likely one of the bolts has come loose. Both wiper arms are linked to one wiper motor.

2009 Chevy HHR water in floor passenger side front and back after heavy rain car was just sitting all day not driving where did 2 inches of clear water in floor come from,


The high-level intake at the base of the windshield directs rain water through channels behind the door pillars to the street. If the channels become clogged with leaves and debris, the rain water can leak inside.

Lots of rain water leaking into front passenger foot rest.


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:

  1. Leaking door gasket.
  2. Leaking windshield seal due to rust
  3. Leaking windshield seal due to improper installation
  4. Leaking windshield seal due to acoustic (sound) over pressure (if you have extreme sound system with heavy bass)
  5. 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.

Where should I look for rain water leak?


Most water leaks come from around the windshield area. Has the windshield been replaces recently? If so it may not be sealed properly. Another area where water may penetrate is through the cowling area under the wiper blades/arm where fresh air enters the car. There are water drains under this cowling allowing water to drain and if they are plugged with leaves/debris, water will enter the vehicle. Is the vehicle rusted around the windshield area? If so, suspect this to be the source of water intrusion. Most glass/windshield repair companies will diagnose water intrusion problems

MY 2006 HHR HAS A WET PASSENGER SIDE LEAK ONLY IN HEAVY RAIN


Check all weep holes for clogs below the windshield, it sounds like it may be coming from the fresh air intake. During the heavy rain, it will fill up with water if the weep holes are clogged.

My left comparment was watery after heavy downfall.by the way my car was mitsubishi lancer GLX 1993 model.


It sounds like you need to check for leak points. Windows are a source, and drain hoses on the A/C evaporator are problems. They let the condensation out the bottom of the vehicle, but get clogged up sometimes and the rain is able to enter through the top vent around your windshield wipers and then can get out fast enough.

My car leaks through the screw holes in the handle on the upper side of driver and passenger window when it rains. During heavy rains it will pour onto the dash and floor board. What is causing the leak...


Most of the time it's a windshield leak as the roof sould'nt have any holes in it except where the windshield is connected to the car body. Most do it yourselfers aren't experienced enough to remove and reinstall windshields so is best to call around to see who in your area does windshield work and if your in the USA and have Comperhensive insureance the company can remove and install the windsheild and charge your insurance for the work.

After heavy rain I seem to be getting water in the drivers side footwell, have you any ideas what the cause maybe, I havent looked myself yet as I am a female living alone and not up on these things...


Most floor leaks that show up after sitting in the heavy rain are leaking windshields...have you had your windshield replaced before? (The windshield installation should be under warranty...at least 1 year:) If you are driving and the floorboard is filling up...the floorboard itself must have a hole or plug missing...The VW usually has floor drain plugs located under the carpet...from your description, the windshield is probably the cause...are there any window trim pieces missing? This is an annoying problem...you can also test the windshield by having someone run a garden hose on the outside while you look inside for the penetration spot or spots...Hope this helps. A glass shop might do a free inspection...

2000 Ford Taurus: With heavy rain, water leaks into cabin filter holder, down air vent, and onto passenger side floor. This just started happening this spring. Are there drain holes somewhere I should...


if you can remove the plastic "cowl" section(s) at the base of the windshield and clear out any debris.sticks,dirt,acorns,mud,etc. THEN run a garden hose where the rain normally would run down and "flush"the drainage paths at each end by each fender. see if that fixes the problem. theres also a possibility that the windshield seal could be bad.

Water leak


sounds like you have a window seal leak.  The only other way water will leak into the car is a leaky heater core or a clogged A/C drain.  Do you have a sun roof that could be leaking?  As they have drains too.
