After owning many vehicles with the same problem i know the leak is always in the support pillar on either side of the windshield. If you move the chrome trim you will see the holes. Seal the hole and the water problem stops. Silicone to the rescue :)

SOURCE: Water is leaking INSIDE my car

Well, the A/C drain may very well be clogged. What happens is, trash and leaves and such will fall into the fresh air vent outside the car eventualy making its way down into the air box, where the evap core is located. The evap core housing/ air box has a drain for the condensation from the evap core to drain. This drain gets stopped up from the dirt, leaves and trash, in turn causes the condensation to overflow into the car. One way to avoid this in the future is to run your A/C on the recirculated air mode, thast way your not pulling all the trash in from outside.

SOURCE: Water Leak in Passenger Side Floor Vent Area after car wash

Unless this happens in the rain as well, I would not worry about it. Likely in the car wash, far more water is coming in than the normal drain system can handle, therefore causing it to overflow. If you do have a drain obstruction, find the drain hose (small right angle hose on firewall passenger side) and roll it in your fingers to clear it.

Much water under front carpet of 2002 Toyota Sienna. seems to coming from up under dash on firewall I think, what say you.


If the Water smells like Antifreeeze then it is your HEATER CORE

If the water smells like Water or Dirty Water, then you have a LEAK.

Here is a TRICK..

Get an Aresol Can of WINDOW CLEANER.... Spray completely around your Windshield on OUTSIDE EDGES... YOU WANT IT FOAMY.

Get an AIR HOSE and BLOW the Windshield from the INSIDE and see where the leak is coming from.....

It has ALWAYS worked for me

What would make my windshield frost up from the inside--I park in the garage at night and during the day while I'm at work the windshield frosts up from the inside so I have to scrape it


Moisture inside the vehicle. If you have a water leak that is allowing water to get into the car it will cause this problem. Also if the A/C water drain is plugged and there is water standing in the blower fan area you will have the same problem.
Pull your carpet back on the driver and passenger side at the fire wall and check for moisture, if the carpet backing is dry on both sides you will want to check the drain under the hood.
Good luck.

Leaking water into trunk/backseat floorboard, it started leaking a little over a year ago. Especially when there is hard rains. I was told by a friend that there are drains for water runoff and that those...


I think I'd take a minute and stop at an autoglass place & get their opinion on it. Sounds to me like a bad seal at base of rear window. Keeping in mind, you don't have to agree to an expensive fix, if it doesn't sound right.

2006 Chevy Colorado - I got a significant amount of water on the floor of the vehicle. removed the water with a shopvac. Later I drove the vehicle and noticed it automatically changed from 2WD to 4WD.


Locate the IP to body harness connector, THIS CONNECTOR IS UNDER THE DASH HIGH UP ON THE LEFT HAND SIDE. Check to see if there is a water leak into the area and repair as necessary. Use a water hose to determine the source of a water leak and effectiveness of repair. Some examples of potential water leaks are: A-pillar seals, sunroof drain lines (if so equipped) and windshield/cowl sealing. Finally, repair or replace the IP to body harness connector, making sure no corrosion or debris is left on or between the terminals.

IT IS ADVISABLE THAT YOU REMOVE THE INTERIOR CARPETING AND DRY IT THROUGHLY. IT WILL MOLD AND SMELL REALLY BAD AFTER A FEW DAYS IN THE HEAT.

USE A WATER HOSE STARTING LOW AND WORKING YOUR WAY UP TO DETERMING WHERE THE LEAK IS. OR USING A FOAMING TYPE WINDOW CLEANER SPRAY IT WHERE YOU THINK THE LEAK MIGHT BE AND USE COMPRESSED AIR FROM THE INSIDE ON THE TRUCK FOLLOWING THE SEAMS AND WINDSHIELD.

Water damaged 99 Audi A6 Avant


On right hand drive vehicles there is a 'convenience' ECU under the front passenger side carpet (I think it swaps and is under the right hand side in a left hand drive) This ECU operates and controls all the systems you have described, they suffer water damage very easily. This will be the cause of your problems and unfortunately will need to be replaced and coded. The ECU was put in this place to keep it well out of the way of any contamination such as water, then the cars ended up leaking water straight on to it! The carpet in the front can be lifted up from the edge by the door with a few trims removed. You probably had quite a lot of water in there because water runs to the back of the car, by the time its visible in the back a lot of water has entered. Let me know if you want anymore imformation.
