Where should I look for rain water leak?


Most water leaks come from around the windshield area. Has the windshield been replaces recently? If so it may not be sealed properly. Another area where water may penetrate is through the cowling area under the wiper blades/arm where fresh air enters the car. There are water drains under this cowling allowing water to drain and if they are plugged with leaves/debris, water will enter the vehicle. Is the vehicle rusted around the windshield area? If so, suspect this to be the source of water intrusion. Most glass/windshield repair companies will diagnose water intrusion problems

What causes water to leak into the interior after rain?


Are you saying the water reappeared while the car was still in the garage? Hope this is not true, as that would most likely be related to the heater core or plumbing, but I thought all that was on the passenger side. If you mean after putting the car back outside and in more rain, possible cowl vent tube leak, windshield leak, or door vents at bottom edge blocked with debris.

Buick passenger side front and rear carpets soaking wet


The two most common causes are rain water leaking in or the ac drain being clogged up. I would vote for rain water if the entire carpet area is wet.
Could be coming in around the windshield, or one of the door gaskets.

Hyundai Getz leaks near pedals when raining


My Getz is also having similar problem. I have thrice got water test done from Hyundai server center. After 2nd test they put some sealants underbody and return the car, but still water was leaking in. 3rd time water test, hyundai said its all fine, no problem but still problem persists. It happens when it rains only, so I dont suspect air-con filters or radiator problems. Water pool is created in driver side footwell only. During heavy rain, I tried to troubleshoot but couldnt find any fault point from where water might be leaking inside. Its second year, I have running into this problem, creating stinking smell inside the car due to wet mats. Looks like I need to do away with my car.

I have a 2001 Aurora, when it rains the front and back drivers side carpets are soaked......and I cannot find a leak anywhere. Someone suggested the air vents for the sunroof might be plugged but I cannot...


I have had a similar problem from time to time. What I saw was that water was collecting along the bottom of the door seal and then being wicked into the carpet from there. Creating a path for the water to flow out of the seal and out the door should help.

I have 2001 catera and the back carpets are soaked after it rains, any ideas on how to fix?


Yup;
Go in the engine compartment where the wiper parks on the passenger side, right ahead of the glove box. Pull back the rubber strip that is at the top edge. There is a plastic shield under the wiper and it comes off. Inside you will find the cabin filter. Remove the cabin filter (could use a change) and you will probably find the bottom plugged with leaves and debris. The drain hole is plugged allowing water to accumulate and pour into the passenger side foot well. Clean this out really good and run a snake wire down the drain hole to clear it. Then hose it down to wash the debris out.
Make sure you dry your carpets out really good by raising them off the floor board. The under pad once soaked, will stink the car up and rot your floors.

Water leaks into right side floor board during a blowing rain?


My 06 was leaking during rain also. It turned out to be the sunroof. There are two drain tubes in the front of the sunroof that run the water down the corners to the ground and two drain tubes that drain water out the back corners. The water would seep around the glass, which is expected, but both of the tubes on the front of mine were plugged, and the water would overflow behind the dash and fill my floorboards. If my H3 was leaning to the left during a storm then the drivers side would be full of water. If leaning right, then the passenger side. I had to open sunroof and blow compressed air into the drain holes to clear them, but be careful, too much air will separate tubes from sunroof and then you will have to remove the inside paneling around sunroof to get to tubes and reconnect. You may only have one side plugged. you can test it by opening sunroof and pour a little water in the small catch pan in the front of the sunroof and see if it drains as expected (to the ground under the firewall on left AND right side). You can see the holes in each corner of catch pan to drain the water. Plug one with your finger, then the other to find the plugged side. Good luck!! Hope this helps!!

Water started on drivers floor and after a heavy


If you remove the carpet, you will find rubber plugs there that plug the drain holes in the floor. May be that one of them has dropped. And then the water flows every where.

Floorboard on driver side completely soaked after it rains


If you remove the door rails at the bottom of the doors you'll be able to lift the carpet and visually look for some small drain plug devices. It sounds like one or more of them is missing or that you have lost a seal in the door or window.
