Open your skylight and feel in the front corners for muck stuck infront of the drainage holes. Use a pipe cleaner or other wire to poke through the holes and the water should drain out. It is a little difficult to see the holes but just feel around.

SOURCE: Nissan Altima Water Leak

as a former certified nissan service advisor, i would say that if it has a parts defect then there is no way that it will nat be covered under warranty. I have seen the sunroof drain on several cars be kinked at the lower end near the kick panel. try opening the sunroof and pouring a small amount of water in the drain hole at the corner of the opening. Also, i have seen where the insulation for the door wiring harness soaks up water then spills out onto the carpet. as long as you are under the 36k mile mark and have not been in an accident, then this is absolutely a warranty repair. if th dealer will not fix it then try another dealer or ask for the regional service rep.

SOURCE: PASSANGER SIDE CARPET FILLED WITH WATER. WATER LEAK UNDER DASHBOARD

I've had this happen with several of my cars and what it inevitably turned out to be was a clog in the evaporator drainage hose. The moisture that condenses in your evaporator casing should drain out through a hose that leads out under your car but if the hose gets clogged that water backs up and ends up on the carpet inside your car. Sometimes its a bit of a hassle to get to but with a bit of work you can usually use a bit of wire or a pipe cleaner to clear it out. If you can crawl under your car, its also possible and sometimes easier to get at it from the there.

SOURCE: changing water pump on 1994 nissan quest

There is no easy way, water pumps are hard to change on this vehicle. Before starting the job I would buy a repair manual with step by step instructions. To give you some idea on how long it may take, the labor time is 4.5 hours for an experienced tech.

SOURCE: water leak inside the car

Whats causing this is that the drain hose for the evaporator is clogged and overflowing into the car. what has to be done is get under the car and find the drain hose, which is going to be on the passengers side of the car by the firewall, and get either compressed air and blow into the hose to try to free the blockage

'06 Chrysler Pacifica w/sunroof: When it rains water is leaking out of the front door frame covers and sun visor screws. (Sun roof is closed.)


hi i'm not familar with your car but if you can wind the sunroof back so the sunroof is fully open look at all four corners where the sunroof sits into there should be at least 2 drain holes which can over time become clogged with debris, if you find them use some warm water and flexi pipe to clean the drain holes out. hope this helps

Water leak drivers side


If it happens when you run the A/C It could be that your A/C drain is clogged and draining to the inside of the car. If it happens while running the heat your heater core could be leaking, but that's usually on the passenger's side and you could smell the antifreeze inside the car, unless you have water in the radiator instead. Other than that inspect your door and windshield seals.

I have a 2003 honda civic ex 2 door. I have a rain leak on the drivers side by the gas/trunk lever. I keep reading it most likely is the sunroof drain. Where is the sunroof drain and how do I get to it to...


It may not be clogged. I believe the sunroof drains run down
the roof pillars and then connect to another hose which exits
through the body behind front fender. Unfortunately the hoses
connect inside the car. Then again this might not be the source
of your leak and water leaks are hard to address. Your dealer
might be your best bet. If the sunroof drains are clogged, Honda
knows entry and exit and they have to be unclogged with compressed
air.

Water leaking in by passenger side!!!!!!


Most likely the sunroof drains are clogged. It happened to mine (and my friend who has the same car), the floormats and floors were soaked, especially behind the drivers side. Volvo wanted to charge me $550 to clear them out and dry out the floors. Instead I took it home, rolled down the windows, parked it in the sun and let it dry out. Then I found a mechanic who blew out the drains with compressed air for only $20. He had originally quoted me $50-100, but ended up doing it for less. He said the two back drains were clogged. You can try sticking a small flexible wire down the front two yourself, then pour water down to see if it drains properly out the bottom of the car. When I looked I didn't see the two back sunroof drains (they are smaller), but my mechanic said they were clogged with leaves, you might be able to clear these yourself too. I would have never guessed that it was the sunroof causing this, because you don't see the water leak around the sunroof, you only see the water backing up on the floor. It has to do with the way the sunroof drains drain down the side panels of your car. Don't take it to the dealership, it's a simple job and they will rip you off.

Water leak on fwd passenger side after every rain storm


If your car has a sunroof, there are drains from the front corners of the sunroof, and they drain down the sides of the windshield pillars, and then empty out on the ground.

What I would do is open the surnroof, and pour water into the front corners, and then oobserve where the water drains out. If you have a difference in water drainage between the left and the right sides, I would think that you may have loose sunroof drain. They commonly come loose at the sunroof corners. This will allow the water to pass down the windshield pillar, and onto the floor.

Also, I would check the condensate drain tube for blockage. Pull back the carpet, under the glove box, and fins a black hose that pokes thru the firewall. Pull it out, and see if it is blocked internally. If this tube is clogged, water will build up in the heater box, as the black tube is the drain for the heater box.

One of the two above solutions will cure your problem. I see both quite often.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance.

There are drains that go from the factory sunroof down the frame and come out in the door frame. If you open your front driver's door and look at the forward part of the door frame you will see what I am talking about. Make sure these drains aren't clogged. If you can find something stiff enough to force down the drain, but still flexible enough to go through all the turns and not poke through the tubing you can push out any gunk. With the sunroof open you should be able to see the holes around the edge of the sunroof frame. These drains are why there are fewer problems with the factory sunroof versus an aftermarket one. Even if some water gets through the seals it has a place to go. Other than that the door seals are really the only other place prone to leaking unless there is some hole in the floorboard. But that would be strange.

There is one more longshot place. In the front drivers side under the dash there are some holes to pass through wires to the engine bay. These holes have grommets that keep water out but if someone did some aftermarket work on the car they may have added wires here and not sealed everything up tight.

Since the water is on the drivers side only I'd start by taking a quick look at the door seals on that side. The driver's door is a good candidate for problems since it is used the most. Also, if the seals are bad you might be able to notice more road noise when driving. Goodluck.
