Wate on the front floor boards

I don't get water in the back mine is all in the front of the car on the floor boards. I have had the windsheild checked and nothing wrong. It seems to get that way only in the winter time. I have looked all over and I can not find anything wrong. But I do know both sides are getting really wet. Any Ideas?

    Sorry I should have said it wasn't the heater core that I know of. The water seems to becoming in from ths sides. Nothing is wet under the peddels or under the dash either.

Check that the heater core is not leaking. It is under the dash. When you look inside the hood against the firewall, there are two hoses going into the cab. Thats where the heater core is located. It could be leaking into the cab inder the dashboard.

Floorboard wet on drivers side on my 1995 buick skylark

There are a few things you will need to check as the leak could be from windsheild or floor. the first thing is to vacuum floor next is to use a water hose and spray all over windsheild while someone is looking with light inside under the dash to see if water is coming inside, if so then window resealing is needed and window has to be removed. next is to look at floor board from under the car for rust hole, this is the way to go. let me knomw the out come. good day

Drivers floor gets wet when it rains

test it with a garden hose. water the front of the truck at the bottom of the windsheild first and see inside if the water comes in. do the same with the roof etc. until you find where the water comes in and solve the problem with adequate sealer

I have a serious water leak on the driver side front of my 2004 Audi A4 1.9tdi se. I have checked the drain plugs under the battery and servo and both are clear. Where else can the water get in? its only...

Take a look under the car and make sure the floor plugs didnt fall out or theres a hole in the floor board, the only other thing is the windsheild, have you had a replacement install, maybe its leaking from there.and if you have a sun roof make sure the drains on the sides are clear and not plugged, good luck, have a nice day.

check windsheild and fresh air intake area at rear of front hood for leak/ seal prolems. Also door weatherstipping , rust should be a problem yet but that depends on your physical location

Water accumulates only on the front and rear driver side floor boards and "only" after it rains. I was told it might be a plugged drain. How can you tell if its a plugged rain drain and not a poorly sealed...

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

Leaking moonroof onto passenger floor

There are gasket replacement kits at local auto parts stores. It's time consuming but well worth it. Prior to starting, inspect the tracks with the moonroof open. There's a chance you have a burr or some other kind of obstruction in the track preventing the roof from properly closing/sealing. A 3 year old vehicle really shouldn't leak from a worn gasket but if the gasket were defective it's possible.

Water on floor board

The drain tubes are a definate possibility, but, usually you will see a water mark on the headliner. The panels are fairly easy to remove, if it has assist handles you will need to remove the rubber or plastic plugs that cover the screws, then remove the screw and gently pull out and upward on the panel, it has metal clips that snap into the sheet metal but it also will have a plastic hook to locate the bottom of the panel, you don't want to break this. This will allow you to check the drain tubes. Also don't rule out the windsheild itself. Especailly if it has ever been replaced. Sometimes there is an air bubble in the sealer/adhesive tube they use to secure the windsheild, if not caught and filled in it will cause a water and or air leak (this happens from the factory too).
