SOURCE: rain water enters car above foot pedal

Water is a tricky problem sometimes. If your A/C drain is plugged water can't drain from you air plenum you were looking into, so check the drain located below the heater motor and make certain no debris has blocked it.
Next, if the windshield sealer has deteriorated it can cause a leak. ( you haven't had the windshield replaced lately?).
The brake vacuum booster has a weather proof seal between the booster and the firewall, it may have deteriorated.
Anything that goes through the front of the dash should be suspect.
A good way to check is to use a garden hose and place it in particular spots and check inside for leaks. That way, you can narrow down the area that is leaking.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards,

SOURCE: 1995 Nissan Sentra has water leaking inside the passenger floor

The door, window weatherstrippeng could need to be replaced, the weatherstripparound the trunk could need to be replaced as well. Also there are drain holes in the floor, one of these could have come loose and may need to be pushed back in, to get a good seal. The drain holes are plugged with a rubber plug. Hope this helps

SOURCE: I'm getting a water leak inside my 1992 Beretta

It is more than likely the ac plug that is locate behind your dash on the underside of the passenger floor, if you are not handy most shops when generally repair this for under a hundred dollars

SOURCE: 2 inches of water every time it rains only on my passenger side

Water is probably from the fresh air intake located just under the right plastic cowl (lower windshield reveal molding). We see this often in our shop. To access the fresh air intake, remove the right windshield wiper and then remove the screws fastening the cowl to the car body. Remove the right cowl. Just above the rectangle shaped fresh air intake (& cabin filter) should be a bulb shaped strip (approx 12" long). All too often, this strip comes off and no longer diverts water. Glue the strip back onto the firewall above the fresh air intake using weatherstrip adhesive. Reattach parts that you removed and now the water should be diverted to either (or both) side(s) of the cabin filter. Good luck

How to stop rain soaking the rear offside floorwell


Hi. The obvious answer would be to keep it out the rain. LOL. You should check the drains for the area that the wipers are in, often these are blocked causing the area to fill with water and thus entering the passanger compartment.

Why is there water on passanger floor after a heavy rain?


Check for leafs that are blocking drain holes on both ends . Air inlet cowl in front of wind shield. This blockage would cause water to back up and enter the Hvac air inlet.

Water leak driver floor board


A water leak under the dash could be the heater leaking near the glove box, or a windshield leak, or sometimes the drain tube for that area has gotten plugged up and needs to be cleared out. Most times a little blast of air pressure will do it.
Hope this helps.

When i put on the brake the fuse keep blowing. is there a comon place a wire may be bad


Very probable your problem may stem from one of two possible issues. Examine both lower red bulb sockets along side the cargo doors.

1. Either you have an single filament bulb installed in the dual filament socket

2. Your socket has rusted from water entering the lamp housing. This occurs when a bulb is first changed, the rubber gasket seal is broken and afterward rain water enters through the compressed rubber gasket and begins to rust the steel contacts within the bulb socket.

Water leak on the passanger side of a 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport


The first place I would look is the floor board caps. Make sure one or more of them aren't pushed up, allowing water to enter the cabin. Also, because your defroster is probably on while it's raining, make sure the A/C drain plug isn't clogged. It's a small rubber fiting that sticks out from inside the firewall, behind the engine. Simply pull it out and clean it. When you pull it out, you might be surprised to see water coming out of the hole!

Just a couple things to check. I hope this helps! :)

Water is leaking from under glove compartment


water dripping from under the glove box area is usally a sign of water in the heating ducts. water runs down the windshield and goes under the cowel, then instead of draining, it some how enters the air intake for your heating system. Take off your wipers, and remove your cowel, you will be able to see the air intake (on the passangers side) and the reason why the water is being directed into it.

Water on floor board of Jeep Liberty


It is most likely coming from a dried up or improperly installed window seal at the bottom of the windshield (under the wiper trim)

Take the trim off and caulk yourself - or have the entire seal replaced.

Everytime it rains really hard rain gets in the car. There is a 2 or 3 inches in the passenger side floor board.


I have the same problem with my 91' 318. Water is coming in from the outside air intake at the base of the front windshield, under the black vent covers. If the basin fills up, water enters the vent system throught the outside air intake. Solution: there is a drain line at the fire wall, easily accessible between the firewall and engine block. It drains water from the basin. It becomes clogged with dirt, and prevents water from draining. However, after further inspection of mine I noticed that during periods of HEAVY rain, even a clean drain line is inadequate to drain that volume of water and the same happens. See attached link. Good Luck
