The heater/airconditioner box under the dash has a drain hose to allow condensation to drain when the air conditioner is running. If this hose gets plugged, rain may accumulate in this box also (if it's raining heavily), as it comes in through the fresh air intake.

Look on the engine side of the firewall, probably on the passenger side, for a hose coming through the firewall that is not connected to anything. It is usually short, has a 90 degree bend, and the open end is down. Make sure that the end of this hose is not plugged.

    If the water is only showing up during rain, this is probably the problem. If the water is showing up even when it's not raining, but the air conditioning is running, this is probably the problem also.



    But if you're getting water all the time, and especially if the water smells like coolant/anti-freeze, you may have a leak in your heater core, which will have to be replaced. This is a big job on most current models because the heater core is buried in the box and much of the dash and console components have to be removed to get to it.

SOURCE: 2002 Mitsubishi Galant I am getting water

It sounds as if the drain line from the vent is plugged. You'll need to get under the car (jack stands please ) to locate. In your forward vent where air comes in for your AC or just Vent rain will obviously get in to it. There is a drain hole at the bottom of this to allow water to flow out. With time from dead bugs, leaves, road dirt... this vent can plug. Under the car locate this vent line, place a small wire up within it to remove the blockage. After doing you may want to both test and flush by use of a garden hose. If there is a lot of accumulated debris it might plug back right away and you'll have to clear again.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom

SOURCE: water leaks into the floor on the front passenger

Based on what you are saying I would bet you have a body seam leaking. Remove as many things as you can to get a look at the rf corner inside the car. Close the doors and have someone spray the car down with a hose and see whats leaking if possible. If the hose dosen't produce any results try a high pressure car wash. One other thing you may want to check is the heater box drain tube(this should be a short rubber hose coming out the bottom of the heater box, its what leaves the puddle of water on the ground when your a/c is on) If this is restricted or plugged water will back up in your heater bax and drain onto your floor. This will mostly only happen when using the a/c. Good luck!

SOURCE: rain water leak

http://www.dodgedakotas.com/boards/dea/524.html

DodgeDakotas dot com has a lot of postngs about water under the Dakota's passenger side carpeting. My own 2005 is leaking, too. Main culprits to check: AC drain tube @ firewall (I think that some Dakotas had to have a 90-degree tube added to the outside end so that water wouldn't blow back into the cab. Great desing, Dodge. Rear window seal; Along the right-side window/roof pillar; the gromment in the passenger side door for a wire pathway. Sounds like some get this fixed under warranty - others meet w. resistance. Good Luck!

SOURCE: water leaks into the vehicle on the front,

It could be a plain old fashioned leak around the windscreen - difficult to find but try sitting in the car while somebody plays a water hose over the windscreen.

It could also be a blocked drain in the ventilation system - fresh air is normally drawn in to a car via vents at the bottom of the windscreen. These vents normally lead to a "box" like structure where any water that enters the vents drops to the bottom and then drains away via a short hose that runs to somewhere underneath the car.
If the drain outlet or hose gets blocked (by leaves for example), it can cause the box to fill with water to the point where it can leak out in to the passenger area.

Hope this helps you find the problem.

I would say you have either a bad seal on the windshield or the seal on the passenger door opening.

The high-level intake at the base of the windshield directs rain water through channels behind the door pillars to the street. If the channels become clogged with leaves and debris, the rain water can leak inside.

In my 2000 chevy Impala has a water leaks under dashboard onto passenger floor, only when it rains?


I had the same problem with a 1994 Taurus. Within the front fender was 10 years of pine needles and leaves blocking the drain backing the water up in and over the fire wall and into the front passenger seat floor.
I took a LONG pair of needle nose pliers threw the passenger side door, and was able to remove enough debree. After pulling out out about 5 fist full's of yuck, 1 gallon a water that was stuck some where poured out flushing out the drain. I did the same on the drivers side. After that I had no problems with floods. I hope this helps. If not check your back door weather stripping if you have one. I have heard water leaking behind the passengers seatbelt and onto the floor from under the seat. Got to love Florida's rain season(s)

Wet floors on passenger side after it rains.


Is it possible the water is actually coming from the A/C evaporator case, whose DRAIN IS CLOGGED ? The water produced by the A/C then leaks out of the case, down under the carpeting, then depending how vehicle is parked, can flow to the rear floors and carpet. Hope this helps

pop the hood and take out the plastic shroud on the passenger side at the firewall. there is a rubber weather stripping that will direct the rain water off the wind shield other wise the rain will fall directly onto the top of the fan motor then run down onto the carpet. i noticed mine when the fan motor iced up and was about an inch thick of ice. all i did was RTV on the weather stripping to redirect the water good luck.
