Question about 1992 Buick Riviera
Water pools into the rear driver's side floorboard after a heavy rain. It is not coming from the ceiling, nor anywhere else I can detect. I even sealed up the sunroof with epoxy thinking that was the problem. Prior to sealing the sunroof, I ran water through the channels in the sunroof housing to check for obstructions, but the water poured through to the bottom of the car, so I thought it was ok. Someone please help! This is driving me crazy. Today, after a lot of heavy rain, there was water in the front floor board, right by the door. Is this a door seal perhaps? The only water I can feel is in the floorboards, though.
There's a tray under the sun roof going from back to front on both sides. Follow that tray and look for the drain holes. They are a little hard to see but use a bright flashlight.
Hope this helps.

I had the same problem we found that the rubber gasket by the fresh air filter below the front windshield had come loose replaced the rubber gasket no more trouble we had trouble with the front seat floor being wet also passenger side only

It could be the base of the windshield, or any holes in the firewall in the area just below the windshield (i.e., where the wiper arms are).

Mother nature is too slow in finding leaks. Have someone small get in the trunk with a flashligh and watch as you run a hose over everything. LET THE PERSON OUT!

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?

You forgot to add WIND to your experiment! Poured water is not driven water and sometiomes the pressure and VACUUM of the moving vehicle is the problem. As you drive a vacuum is created around any area not directly exposed to the airflow. This can "pull-up" seals that are tight when you are still, and also there is a possiblity that the water came from underneath your car!!
