Water in Floorboard tailgate area

I have had an ongoing issue everytime it rains - or car wash - On LX470/2000 - the rear bed area/carpet is soaked with water - I have gone out of my mind trying to figure it out - brought to dealer - glass place and nothing - it is soaked right where you open the tailgate and the carpet/door meet - Any ideas?

thanks!

Gasket on the door has gone bad and needs to be replaced. It seems like the door gasket is not sealing properly and allowing water into your vehicle or you have a leak in the bottom of the vehicle that needs repairing. But that is more then likely not the problem

    They would know this, but as you know dealerships are a pain in the neck. You can order one through lexus and it will have the instructions on how to replace it;. Also through Kragen

The center brake light foam seal is also a know weak link causing water leaks into the aft cargo area of the LX470. I have the same problem rught now. Waiting for a nice day to make a replacement seal, (the factory foam seal is weak), and install it with a very light bead of RTV.

Water leak after rain, rear floorboards soaked? HELP!


a couple things to look at if it has a sunroof the sun roof would have drain hoses that run down in each corner next you need to look at the cowl this is the section in front of the windshield that has a drain on it as well if you find nothing there the next step would be to remove the seats and carpet and sit in the car while running water over it either way you should remove the carpet and make sure it is dry all the way threw or mold will start to grow and you will never get ride of it not good for your heath other key spots to look at is if the windshield was ever replaced it could be a poor seal

Wet floor board when it rains.


The sloshing water could be water in your doors. Old Range Rovers used to trap water when the drains became plugged - it could be that the water is building up there and coming out of the door speaker grilles. Is the car fitted with a sunroof? Pinched or restricted sunroof drains can also lead to this kind of problem.

I have a Mazda B2500 (2000). Everytime it rains the drivers side floorboard gets soaked. There is no dripping or water running down the door. What could this be?


You could have a windshield that is leaking water. Often this water will trickle down from the bottom/inside of the glass and then down the firewall, under the carpet or floor mat, and to the floor. The way I usually hunt for these is to remove the floor mat or carpet then get a flashlight and lay down in the cab so you can see under the dash area while someone sprays water on the vehicle with a garden hose. Often the leak will show up as a trickle that you can then backtrack to it's source. Another spot to look for is at the cowl in front of the windshield where air for the heater and a/c is pulled into the passenger compartment. The water drain holes in this area can plug up and allow water to overflow into the passenger compartment. Good luck, hope this helps!

Water in the back floorboard of my bmw530i


Double check the drains at the front of the sunroof, the rear windshield, or the trunk. It is possible it is the drain from the a/c is plugged also. A simple way to test that is to turn the a/c on and see if water drips from the passenger side near the wheel area. If so, you're good. Take a water hose and systematically water the lowest area metioned above and see if you get water inside the car. You can also pull up the rear seat and see if there is evidence of water from that area. Let me know what you find.

Water leaking into 2005 Camry 6 cyl under carpet drivers side.


I think that I can help you. It sounds like your drain-tube is plugged up. Get in the passenger side, and pull the carpet back from under the glove box. Look for a black rubber pipe that goes from a black box, and pokes thru the firewall, on the passenger side. Remove the hose from the box, and have a container ready to catch water. If water comes out of the black box, your drain hose is plugged up. Clean out the clog, and you will be golden.

1996 ford bronco, leaking water on left side tail gate


i would replace all the seals between the bed and the top. also the seal at the bottom of the tailgate. that should take care of any leaks unless there is a rust hole under the carpet

Rear floorboard behind driver set wet after rain


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?
