On a dry day take a garden hose and shoot water in any area that could leak and check and see if there is water in any of those areas. Also check under the car to see if there are holes or cracks that could leak. A rust spot will sometimes leak as well.

SOURCE: Water on front and rear passenger floor board, a lot of water

you can test again the car by putting a garden hose at the front of the windshield where it is supposed to **** fresh air. if you have a rusted part there and water could sipped in.

another option would be the recycle door of the airconditioning could be partly open ang letting the water come inside the car..

tnx 4 using fixya,

SOURCE: 1999 Saturn SL Sun Roof Leaks when it rains

Great solution: Use a 8 foot length of weed eater plastic "blade". You can get a small amount from a hardware supply store. While twisting the strand, insert it into your drains that are located in the corners of your open sunroof hole. Feed the plastic thru the tubing... don't force it, use gentle pressure. Test with a bit of water and look under the car for drainage.

SOURCE: My '98 Saturn Coupe S Series leaks when it rains.

EASY!
pull the kick panel on the affected side. there is a rubber panel underneath that gets removed as well. reach inside and you will find the hose. pull it up and you will find that it has a cap on the bottom to prevent wind noise. remove and clean it thoroughly. If it is clean, pull the headliner down and reconnect the drain hose at the sunroof.

the rear hoses almost NEVER leak, so don't bother with them unless you find no problems in the front.

SOURCE: Water accumulates only on the front and rear

take a star screw driver and punch a pair of holes in your floor on drivers side make sure once you go through push the screw driver towards the front of the car and creat angled pockets
these will be your new drains being so small they will bnot tako on water or they will take on a min of water and they will drain the floors


it''s the easiest way to fix the problem go right through the carpet it's just thet easy use a good pointy screw driver or a center punch but dont make the hole larger then 1/4 inch
a mechanic will carge you 250 to fix original drains and will likely do the same as i said a couple of wacks near the lower center on the floor boards
so get in place feet on floor slide them back against the seat with it all the way back now place pointy object between feet and wach it with a hammer
once through push pointy objest forward to create new drain

There are drains for the sunroof that are located in the coners of the roof, these plug up and the water drains into car, you will need to remove the cover were the seatbelt is and see if the hose that connects to the drain fell off or if drain is plugged, open the roof all the way back and using a bottle filled with water , pour over the drains one at a time and see if it drains if not you will need to use a coat hanger and unplug them but i would still check for the hose off on the side that leaks water. good day.

Rear floorboard behind driver set wet after rain


do you have a sun roof, if so start there, because there are two hoses at the back corners of the roof pan that allow water to drain, if they leak, they will soak the rear floorboards, and if not that check the door jam seals.(note that if the plugs on the floor are missing that will be verry hard not to have wet carpet)........let me know?
