    After being more observant I have noticed that there is a small drip off the brake pedal, and another sometimes right in front of the side kick panel (whatever it's called). I appreciate your suggestions

It sounds more like your heater core is leaking than anything else

Water is probably coming from behind the dashboard. It will be from the windshield or the firewall that water is getting in.

I have a 1998 Chevy Suburban.whenever it rains the driver side floorboard becomes wet. door seals are good. where could the leak be coming from?

Possibly from the windshield. Is there any rust around the windshield area? Check for debris in water drain outlets under the wiper arm cowling.

Where can i find the a/c drain plug on my 2005 chevy suburban. I have water acculating on the passenger side floor

Only a technician can drain your A/C. Is the water that is accumulating sweet smelling? A heater core can leak radiator fluid on the floor of your vehicle if it goes bad.(hense the sweet smell) Your A/C shouldn't drip anything inside your car.

2003 suburban passenger side carpet gets wet when it rains

Just fixed the same issue on our 2004 Suburban. Turned out it was just that the drain for the rear A/C was clogged with dirt (located right behind right rear tire -- above the exhaust pipe). All it took was a paperclip, straightened out, poking gently in this narrow rubber ****... and the water came gushing out (floor was wet at the time). If you do it when the floor is dry, you would have to turn on the rear A/C for a while and make sure the condensate drips out of the drain.

2002 suburban has leak in driver side rear floor. Cannot see where water would be coming from?

We had same--water on driver side rear floor (soaked!). Driver side front floor seemed dry until feeling UNDER rug, was slightly damp. We found the location of TWO leaks causing this.

Leak #1 was through the parking brake line/cable seal; Recaulked with silicone. Removed plastic trim on floor between floor and door to reveal metal channel filled with water.

Leak #2 was where the door meets the car, near the hinge. It was the accordian-looking tube housing the wiring for the door. The big, rubber, circular plug connecting it to the main part of the car had come loose and water ran down through that, into the SAME metal channel filled with water from leak #1; will seal with silicone.

Note: We found that the channel filled extensively near the front door, BUT the carpet edge from the floor near the rear seat was dipping into it, wicking it up to the rear floor. Also, upon acceleration, the water in the channel gushed toward the back, thus soaking the rear carpet.

These leaks were found by removing all plastic trim (covering edges of carpet by doors), then one of us pouring water into specific areas of the exterior of the vehicle, and the other one watching closely with a flashlight for any signs of dripping.

After it rains water is in trunk Nissan Altima

When diagnosing a water leak, here's a handy tip. Check the accumulated water. If the water is dirty, look for leaks from the underside of the vehicle (floor, wheelwells, etc). If the accumulated water is clean, look for leaks from the topside of the vehicle (trunk seal, window seal, etc). To find where the water is coming from, shut yourself in the trunk with a flashlight and have an assistant run water over the trunk with a garden hose. You may have to remove some of the interior trunk trim to see exactly were the water is coming from, but chances are you'll find it. Also another common cause of water leaks are from impact damage, so check for collision damage repair. while your in there. -hope this helps.

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
