Keep looking by covering area at hood etc and running water on the vehicle to locate where it is coming in---Windshield?

This is the best way if you cannot trace the stains from water to source.

SOURCE: water in floorboard

Either the sealant that was used in putting your windshield in has began to fail, or there may be a larger opening under the vents, or on the firewall in the engine compartment. Look under the vent slats/holes under the windshield wipers. Look in the bulkhead that separates the engine from the dashboard(With the hood up). Those are the only ways water is getting in. Seal it with an expanding style sealer

SOURCE: water leak on driver's side floor

It's either the driver's side door seal or the windshield leaking. Best bet is to be inside on a dry day and have someone run a garden hose over that side of the car. That will give you your answer.

check the grill area under the windscreen ,, you should be able to acess this with the bonnet open,, there are 2 drains to allow water to be drained ,,, these can get blocked by leaves and dirt causing water to build up and get into the car through the heater

My 2006 H3 has water leaking into drivers side floor


While H3 is parked on driveway, driver floor mat is removed, and steering turned all the way right to expose splash area, pressure hose the front left steering splash area behind left tire while another person feels with their hands to determine where water is entering. If the leak is beneath, it would only enter when you go through flooded area. When it rains, the water constantly splashes behind the tires, which is an area source for water to enter the driver area while the vehicle is in motion during rain condition. If you live in snow area, they use salt to keep roads clear of snow. Salty water is highly corrosive to exposed steel. In the summer or fall season before snow begins, you steam jet pressure clean the underside, then inspect for any area where undercoating had come off. Take primer spray paint and cover these exposed areas with at least 3 coats of primer paint, or rubber sealant spray.

Water leaks


Have your windshield gasket checked. When it rains, and if there is a small hole in the gasket, water will travel around the edges and down the inside. It will flow behind the dash and finally onto your floor

Leak onto floor behind the glove box, also making defrost slow to work.


i'm thinking this leak may actually be caused by a rusted out spot or hole on the hood of the vehilce, or by the windshield seal coming loose allowing water to enter..

if the cars antenna is above that area where the leak is it can also come from that..

basically it will enter the hood, run down the sides and gather on the floor under the glove compartment...

you said its only when its raining right ?? so its definitely a leak.

Carpets are wet in foot wells after all the frosty weather, and not just when it rains. Any solutions?


Have you been adding any coolant? You could have a leaking heater core, which will usually leak to the inside, wetting the carpets in the well. Most American cars locate the heater core on the passenger side of the firewall, so a leak will typically show up on only the passenger side floor. I once had an Audi that had the heater core mounted just about dead center on the firewall. When it started leaking, both sides of the well(s) got wet.

Passenger floor gets sopping wet during rain or hosing


You may have a windshield that is leaking due to a small gap in the adhesive that glues the glass to the body. The water will trickle in behind the dash and it can be very difficult if not impossible to pipoint the excact source of the leak. If you can't find it yourself you may need to go to a windshield replacement facility and see if they can help you out. If it turns out that the windshield is leaking you may have to replace it as sometimes they can't be removed without being damaged due to how they are glued in place. Hope this helps out a bit!

Water leaks into right side floor board during a blowing rain?


My 06 was leaking during rain also. It turned out to be the sunroof. There are two drain tubes in the front of the sunroof that run the water down the corners to the ground and two drain tubes that drain water out the back corners. The water would seep around the glass, which is expected, but both of the tubes on the front of mine were plugged, and the water would overflow behind the dash and fill my floorboards. If my H3 was leaning to the left during a storm then the drivers side would be full of water. If leaning right, then the passenger side. I had to open sunroof and blow compressed air into the drain holes to clear them, but be careful, too much air will separate tubes from sunroof and then you will have to remove the inside paneling around sunroof to get to tubes and reconnect. You may only have one side plugged. you can test it by opening sunroof and pour a little water in the small catch pan in the front of the sunroof and see if it drains as expected (to the ground under the firewall on left AND right side). You can see the holes in each corner of catch pan to drain the water. Plug one with your finger, then the other to find the plugged side. Good luck!! Hope this helps!!
