Try cleaning all the debris from the base of the windshield.. moreso if you park under trees..all that stuff has the drains plugged up.. otherwise check the weatherstripping and replace whats bad.

SOURCE: Water on Drivers side Saturn SC2

Is it antifreeeze from heater core or heater core hose leak?  Is the leak pure water, or maybe something else?
Put it in the garage again overnight with an old white towel in the drivers foot well, best if you can find a way to stretch it from drivers seat forwar to firewall and keep it off of floor mat.  Check it before you go to bed,  then in the morning if no leak found yet.  see if the color/location of the spot helps you identify the source.  I think the heater core is under the dash center.  Anti freeze is green/yellow or orange.
good luck

SOURCE: Water leak on driver's side - 2000 Mitsubishi Galant

I was a manager at a Mitsubishi dealership.

There was a "secret warranty" on certain Galants where the firewall seam would fair and leak water into the interior. Call your local dealer to see if your vin qualifies. The fix is to simply reseal the firewall crimp seam with silicone sealant.

Alternatively, sunroof equipped cars sometimes get the drain channels clogged in time. Make sure to clean drain holes and use forced air if necessary.

Lastly, some cars have heaters with pollen filters. If those filters become clogged, condensation can accumulate and overflow into the interior.

If any of these solves your issue, please rate my answer

SOURCE: Water leaking onto drivers side floor board.(not

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).

SOURCE: water on drivers side floor board.

Check under the car to make sure all rubber drain plugs are in place.
( When I had a leak in my 98 Lincoln both sides of the floor panels were wet here the leak was from the moon roof drain tubes.) Look below thats how I found my problem.

Easiest way to find the leak I know it sounds strange but it works. Take a water hose and have someone spray the car down while your sitting inside and look for the leak. Thats how I found the leak in my car. It might take a few times but it works.

Water leak on drivers side in my 1999 Honda Civic DX Coupe


Go to the passenger side or driver side there you need to find the A/C drain tube make sure that it is draining outside and not in the compartment area.This drain hose tends to pop out, so when you have the A.C on you notice there is water draining out but in your case its going in thhe car.

2002 suburban has leak in driver side rear floor. Cannot see where water would be coming from?


We had same--water on driver side rear floor (soaked!). Driver side front floor seemed dry until feeling UNDER rug, was slightly damp. We found the location of TWO leaks causing this.

Leak #1 was through the parking brake line/cable seal; Recaulked with silicone. Removed plastic trim on floor between floor and door to reveal metal channel filled with water.

Leak #2 was where the door meets the car, near the hinge. It was the accordian-looking tube housing the wiring for the door. The big, rubber, circular plug connecting it to the main part of the car had come loose and water ran down through that, into the SAME metal channel filled with water from leak #1; will seal with silicone.

Note: We found that the channel filled extensively near the front door, BUT the carpet edge from the floor near the rear seat was dipping into it, wicking it up to the rear floor. Also, upon acceleration, the water in the channel gushed toward the back, thus soaking the rear carpet.

These leaks were found by removing all plastic trim (covering edges of carpet by doors), then one of us pouring water into specific areas of the exterior of the vehicle, and the other one watching closely with a flashlight for any signs of dripping.

Water accumulates only on the front and rear driver side floor boards and "only" after it rains. I was told it might be a plugged drain. How can you tell if its a plugged rain drain and not a poorly sealed...


take a star screw driver and punch a pair of holes in your floor on drivers side make sure once you go through push the screw driver towards the front of the car and creat angled pockets
these will be your new drains being so small they will bnot tako on water or they will take on a min of water and they will drain the floors


it''s the easiest way to fix the problem go right through the carpet it's just thet easy use a good pointy screw driver or a center punch but dont make the hole larger then 1/4 inch
a mechanic will carge you 250 to fix original drains and will likely do the same as i said a couple of wacks near the lower center on the floor boards
so get in place feet on floor slide them back against the seat with it all the way back now place pointy object between feet and wach it with a hammer
once through push pointy objest forward to create new drain

Floor board is wet on driver side front and rear


Check the weatherstripping around the door. Also look under the dash board for signs of water leaking from the firewall. If your weatherstripping isn't damaged anywhere then make sure the liquid doesn't smell like antifreeze. If it does then you've busted the heater coil. Do not drive the car if this is the case. Your coolant will all leak into the car and it will overheat. Replacing a heater coil tend to be a huge pain in the **** and if you can pay someone else to do it by all means do. The heater coil can be bypassed by connecting the water inlet hose to the outlet hose where they go into the firewall. This is a crutch but your car will run fine until you can get the heater coil replaced. A mechanic will do the bypass for you pretty cheaply. It only takes 5 minutes.

2002 leaks on passenger side floor board


That is the sunroof drain hose. Cut the tips off with a razor blade on the driver's side also.

The rear drains are underneath the car inside of the wheel wells but don't clog as often as the front ones.
