Question about 1985 Volvo 760
I have noticed that for the last month or so, water has been pooling on the floor on the left side of the car, but not the right. The water seems to be pooling on the floorboards in the driver seat and the left passenger seat in the back, the right side of the car is bone dry but the left is constantly wet. I was wondering if anyone knows where it is most likely leaking from, or how I can remove the carpet to check. Thank you for your help in advance.
I had this same problem on a '92. Get the carpet out even if you have to cut it out and dry the car with a space heater or blow dryer. Cover with a canvas to keep water out. Get under the car and look for holes in the floor or firewall allowing rainwater in. You may need to do as I did and remove the hood, left front fender, wipers, and louvered wiper panel, to look for holes. Use a garden hose to find leak. I found 3 rust holes in the firewall, using a strong flashlight and mirror to see hidden areas. I patched with metal patches, silicone, and roofing tar.

It could be a seal, that isn't.
Also if you're ventilation system has got leaf debris, or general build up, the drain for the overflow, (which are usually located in the front arches) may be blocked.
Hope that helps.

The drain for your A/C may be clogged causing the water to accumulate. You should be able to locate the drain from under the vehicle on the pasenger side, perhaps there is an accumulation of debri such as leaves for example. Also, sunroof drain may also be blocked. I can say I have seen this problem before, and its a good place to start. Good luck

Well, do you suspect rain? If not, a/c water does this. It is remarkably clean, compared to other leaks...Look for little black press on hoses about 1/2 inch in diameter...often dislodged in error by a foot or repair guy.....
This drain comes from the very bottom of the heater box areas...
