Question about Cars & Trucks
My 1999 VW Passat V6 has a leak somewhere. The leak is on the Driver's side front carpet which destroyed the computer. Ive alreay sent it to the mechanic twice and the second time he just gave up. The first time he replaced the computer and said it was fine and transmission box since it had been shifting hard and revving really high. Now he wont tell me why he gave up but he did refund me for the box. Now it wont run anymore so ive taken up the carpet and pulled everything on the drivers side and calked the wondshield and the sunroof. I found a hole under the carpet and i plugge it but water still seeping in. Any ways im orderig a new box while im waiting for everythig to dry out. Any suggestions or past experiences with this?
Make sure drivers door seal is in tact and inplace securly at top of dooer

No , it's not normal to leak.
Either , water pump is bad ( 5 times ? )
or instalation was bad or more likely , leak is not the water pump at all

suspect door carrier as its called metal plate behind door trim seal will have failed on bottom edge water test with hosepipe and check inner door aperture seal pull seal open if leaking there will be water in seal check o/s/f &o/s/r assuming r/h/d. repair is abit more complicated

SOURCE: Rainwater Leak (2001 Stratus SE)
Check at the bottom of the door there is a hole(****) out side the seal that is suppose to let the water out when it rains, it is probably clogged with leaves or debris. It is hard to see. i had the same problem.

The AC evaporator units have a drain hose that runs through the floor because condensed moisture is a fact of life with AC units. Yours is plugged. You will have to get under the vehicle and look for the hose where it comes out, then take like coat hanger wire and clean it out, It is somewhere in the vicinity of where the passenger foot well meets the fire wall. If you have to raise the vehicle to get under it, make certain you have it safely supported. If you don't have the stuff, drive the passenger side wheels up on a good curb and use some cardboard to slide under.

Best way to check is with someone on the outside with a hose and someone on the inside looking for where the water is getting in. Repairs may involve adjusting the weatherstrip or the door. even the inside panel has a water pad it can be missing or partly uninstalled The windshield can be leaking, or the cowl drains are stopped up with leaves and dirt. The hose should find the problem
