The water probably went down between the window and the door. On the bottom of the door is a drain hole, with all that rain it looks like the water in the door washed some dirt or something over the hole and stopped it up but not before it went inside the car and onto the carpet. Just unplug the hole with a small stick or something and watch for the water drain out. Open the doors and let your car dry out. Should be O.K.
did you notice the water after a rain? or was it dry?
the weatherstripping around the door may be damaged. inspect for tears, missing sections, detatched sections, use a garden hose and spray aroun the door seal to see if there are any leaks. also spray around the window to see if that's leaking.
are you sure it's water and not engine coolant? the heater core may be leaking. it is located on the passenger side under the dash. is the coolant low?
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
Water could be in the sill sections. There are usually several drains in every door and box section but the sill drains tend to be small and easily blocked by factory applied sealer as much as mud and dirt.
Sometimes a drain has to be "modified" and sometimes a new temporary or permanent drain must be produced.
The water location might be pinpointed by jacking the vehicle in certain ways while stationary.
it is located on the right side of the vehicle very close to the firewall, it is easiest to look under the truck or underhood of the truck lower right side of firewall for a rubber tube about 1-2 inches long, find the tube and squeeze it, dirt wasps like to build nests in there, if crud runs out it should run water when a/c is on, if it is dripping with a/c on it may not be clogged, but look anyway
The 1997 Sebring convertible has rocker panels (the metal that goes from front to back wheel well and directly under the doors) that have five drain channels each. The sloshing noise occurs when the drain holes plug up and a rocker panel fills up with water. Often, the water will then leak into the right rear footwell, soaking the carpet. A quick fix is to locate the drain holes and run a flat (unused) twistem-tie (they come with your trash bags) through each hole several times. Commonly, doing so will result in a deluge of water, along with spider web parts, leaf parts, and whatever else washed into the rocker panel fromo the rear window.
To find the drain holes, just 1) lie under the car with a flashlight, or 2) sit alongside the car with one of those mirrors that come on a telescoping stick. Since I don't like to lie in dirty water, I use the mirror to guide my twistem-tie (or ice pick or spring wire or whatever) into each hole. NOTE: the drain holes are flat and run at a 30 degree angle from back to front on the right side and from front to back on the left side.
along the buttom of the rocker pannel there is a seam that gets bent from jacking in the wrong place ,that seam is where the drains are,screw driver and pry apart at the drain ,the drain is a tube shaped bump molded in the steel on the inside part of rocker panel
check for door seal inside the door pannel specific area the lower part of the door /yes you have to remove the door pannel /////// if that does not work try the water drain on the front, below the battery remove battery plate and clean the drain rubber / the water runs all the way to the back from the bottom of he carpet
