Water leak driver floor board

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

SOURCE: just noticed today that my 2004 xc 90 was out in

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

SOURCE: my lexus 2000 rx300 started to leak water I find.

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.

Has it been raining? If so, you either have a hole in the floorboard or possibly a leaking door seal. If it hasn't been raining then either your heater core is leaking (the wet will smell sweet, like antifreeze) or your AC condensor pan is leaking (the wet will be a clear liquid)

My floorboard keeps getting wet on my chrysler town and country. I had my heater core replaced, but it is still doing it.


Next time it is raining, take a flashlight and look up under the dash to locate the source. Rain that falls into the air intake at the base of the windshield has to drain somewhere. The factory sealant may not be working or there may be leaves clogging the drainage path. Put a piece of newspaper on the floor under the heater core location and run the engine with the heater turned on to detect leakage which may migrate to the driver's side. If this is the source, you should be able to smell antifreeze.

What causes wet passenger side floor in 2000 chrysler 300m?


Water.
You may have a rusted floor kicking up water, or a door seal may be leaking. check for both. In my 96 convertible it comes from the rocker panel filling up with water after a rain and it spills into the rear floorboards. It could be similar, although I don't see how a rocker can fill up like that in a hardtop. Check it out anyway, and run a coat hanger through the weep holes between the rocker and the floorboard where they are welded together They form a ridge on an angle like this: \\ on the lip and forms a small tube. This tube gets clogged with stuff and has to be routed out with that coat hanger from time to time. Eventually it will rust out and the problem will go away!!

The passenger side floorboard gets wet =


is it only when the ac is on? there is a pan under the ac unit that has a hole in it to allow the condensation to empty. if that hole gets plugged it could cause the condensation to build up and back into the inside of that car. i unplugged mine and floor stayed dry

98 sebring jxi convertible. water pools in my back floor board


Sebring Convertibles have weep holes under the body that get clogged with debris and cause the water to back up into the floor. Take a paper clip and straighten it to clean out the weep holes. The weep holes can be found just under the frame at the doors where there is a seam(about where the jack would go). Along this seam about ervery 12 or 16 inches there will be a small slot for the water to drain.

'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.

Rear floorboard behind driver set wet after rain


do you have a sun roof, if so start there, because there are two hoses at the back corners of the roof pan that allow water to drain, if they leak, they will soak the rear floorboards, and if not that check the door jam seals.(note that if the plugs on the floor are missing that will be verry hard not to have wet carpet)........let me know?
