It will be one of two sources the water could be coming through the windshield seal or the rubber seal around the door. To find the source of the leak get some tape and tape the opening around the door and window, then use a garden hose and wet the windshield and door using low volume of water. If there is new water in your car the windshield is the problem and will need to be resealed at your local auto glass shop.

SOURCE: 88 Honda Accord left front turn signal assembly

*The Turn signal on the Side of the car next to the headlight*
1. Open the retractable headlights.
2. Remove the plastic shroud around the headlight: two screws in front and one on each side.
3. Look to the outside of the headlight and you will see a single screw in a small plastic cover on the front inside edge of the signal light assembly. The headlight prevents you from getting at the screw straight-on. I broke it loose with an offset phillips screwdriver, and then backed it out with a regular phillips.
4. Remove the plastic cover, and you will see two screws. Remove them.
5. Now you can pull the turn signal assembly forward and out.
6. To remove the bulb holders from the assembly, twist counterclockwise and pull out.
7. Pull straight outward to remove the bulbs. To assemble, follow the steps in reverse. Note that there are two plastic rods on the back end of the turn signal assembly that you will insert into two holes in the channel of the fender

*The turn signal in the bumper*
1. You will need a phillips head And Flat head screw driver, right below the turn signal there is a panel that you can pop out, (or its allready gone, Looks like a Fog light can go in there.)
2. once u find that, (Pretty easy to find) Look directly up in there., there is styrofoam up there and u will also notice a little hole,
3. Stick the Phillips head screw driver in that hole and turn it counter clockwize, The screw will not fall out,
4.once it feels like the screw is loose put the flat head in between the turn signal lense and bumper, the side where you unscrewed it and SLOWLY pry it out,
4. once out, just twist the plug and replace light bulb
to replace just reverse instructions

SOURCE: Interior Carpet Getting Wet

It sounds like a plugged drain line from the air conditioner. Most cars now run in the a/c mode whenever u turn on the climate control (even when heat is on). The passenger side front is where it would be wet, and the carpet and carpet pad act like a sponge and will soak up the water. Let me know how u make out.

Check ALL including the spare tire for proper air pressure. If all is well then check the fuse for the TPMS module. If all is well there, off to the dealer you may have to go.

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.

Water on drivers side floorboard . Why?


If you have a sunroof it could be the drain that follows the front pillar letting out under the front fender. These hoses are known to plug and crack open releasing water into the floorboards.

Driver side door check along top and front edge for tears or twisted looses sections. Internal to the door water can drain down along the window and is released outside the door seal. If the bottom of the door has the opening that releases the water plugged then water will drain over into the floorboard.

Where is door and windshield weep holes location ?


The door weep holes are located at the bottom of the door. The windshield cowl actually drains through the front door pillars which frequently become clogged with leaves and other debris.

Everytime it rains hard my carpet is wet by the door on the driver side and also driver side rear door


There is a great possibilty that there is a leak on the Left Side of the Windshield. It is most likely in the area of the upper left side.
The reason for this conclusion is:
The rain water is coming in the Left Upper Side; and either coming down the "A" Pillar, or traveling underneath the trim on the inside roof and coming down the "B" Pillar.
The only other explanantion is a torn, worn, cracked or dislocated Weather Seal on one or both of the doors, allowing rain water to come in. Inspect very carefully these Weather Seals, especially on the top front portion of the rear door.
To help you locate these after a hard rain:
Take the trim panels off the "A: and "B" Pillars and the Roof Line above both Doors. Check for wetness underneath the trim. Or take these trim panels off, and place folded paper towels under the trim panels; reattach the trim panels and wait until it rains. Afterwhich, take these trim panel off and check the paper towels for wetness.
The Windshield Seal is easily inspected for cracks and tears.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

'03 Accord-water leak at rear driver side floor board


I had a similar leak on a 1995 Accord. I traced the issue to the plastic liner behind the door panel. The seal was broken at the bottom and water would leak from that to the rubber weatherstrip at the bottom of the door that seals at the plastic threshold molding. You can't really see it good until the door panel is removed. The water would drip until it puddled up enough to run over the threshold molding and under the driver's seat. This caused the floorboard behind the driver's seat to be soaked after a rain. I have resealed the plastic lining but of course it hasn't rained since. I'm confident this will solve my problem and hopefully provide you a new place to look for yours.

Door Locks click all day long


if the vehicle is equipted with keyless entry pad. it is common for the to get water inside of them and cause various odd electrical concerns. do the dome lights come on also? as a technician, i am able to monitor your locks to see what input source the locks are receiving their signal to cyle comes from by using a computer. however wioth out this tool it limits abilities severley. i would first try unpluging the keyless entry pad if so equipted and each locki switch in order until concern stops. as a side note, it is also common for a water leak to occur on the left side of truck running down the pillar next to the windshield, soaking your GEM module and fuse box. the water from that leak also will cause erratic electrical concerns. your can check for that first by trying to push out on windshield @ edges..if you see the glass move, it must come out and be resealed. there is also a metal track on the left side a pillar area that leaks (near grab handle) hang youtr head under dash and look @ the back side of fuse box to see if any water intrusion exists there.....i hope this helps you...good luck!
