Question about Chrysler Cars & Trucks
I have a 2003 Chrysler Sebring LXI coupe and the floorboard on the driver's side gets soaking wet when it rains (depending on which direction the car is parked). Rain comes in on the far left side UNDER the dash (I've watched it.)Sometimes happens when I'm driving, but very minimal. Took it to a dealer (twice), and a auto repair place and they couldn't find the leak. I keep using a wet/dry vac to get out the water, but it's pretty tiresome to do this a couple of times a week. Any ideas why I'm getting this foot bath and how I can stop it?
Rain water that enters the air intake at the base of the windshield is channeled through a duct and dumped outside. The duct may be clogged with leaves and debris. If someone runs water from a hose into the air intake at the base of the windshield, the source of the leak should become apparent quickly

You have to find the leak
Have a shop use their Evap Smoke Machine
Pressurize the cabin & see if smoke comes out
around the windshield,engine compartment,etc
Hate to run hose over the car, but you can see it come
in,so that is an option,with someone under the dash with
a light watching.
Check on internet for the issue on your vehicle
Call an auto glass place, for advice on what they solve

The windsheild seal maybe leaking, causing water to leak into the car. I would check with an automotive glass shop take a look.

Testimonial: "thanks, I will try that and let you know "
I am guessing that you recently had a windshield replaced. If so they didn't seal it well and it leaks in there. You can go to a glass shop and have it re-sealed or you can buy sealer at most automotive stores and do it yourself.
The other option is that it is leaking in through the air intake between your hood and the windshield. That is the air intake for your heating and air conditioning. There are drains in the line that can get clogged up. If that is the case the best option is to take it to a repair shop.
