It is a very simple problem to solve.
Problem: during heavy rains the water level exceeds the height of the air intake vent and water begins to fall on the passenger's feet
Solution: Raise the hood, remove the plastic grille located just below the windshield and clean the drain hole of this compartment.

    the compartment is where the cabin filter is. the drain hole empties into the engine compartment. there is a flapper valve that gets pluged with sediment tincobur is right its simple to solve. pull the filter and use a flashlight you will see the problem make sure you get alll the junk and clear the valvee it will be good for years.

Why is there water leaking on my floor mat on the passenger side of my Rav 4


if it's just water, check the door gaskets. if it's coolant, you'll most likely need a heater core. past that, have someone spray water on the car while you look for where the water is getting in. you may need to pull the carpet back some to see.

Loosing a lot of coolant


it has to be either leaking somewhere, or it is going through the engine-check passenger floor for heater core leak, or a hose/clamp leak near or over the exhaust. Is the system holding pressure when hot? {squeeze the upper radiator hose when hot, you should feel it as a solid hose, that is not collapsed}. If you have pressure, it is some sort of external leak if you do not see smoke coming out the exhaust.

Water on passenager side floor has puddles in front of seat and behine seat


water in the passenger seat is caused by a leaking seal in the a/c evaporator. all the cool air in the a/c are stored in the evaporator. thus moisture is present in the evaporator. have an a/c technician check the fittings in your a/c.

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.

Water leak on fwd and back passenger side after every rain storm


pull your carpet up near the leak area and look for muddy body seams. it is possible one of the factory body seams are leaking- possibly in the cowl(under wipers) area, especially if it leaks when the car is sitting. there will be dirt/mud around the seams that are leaking. also you can check door seals by running the car on HIGH DEFROST with all doors and windows closed. spray around with a 50/50 soapy water solution. obviously bubbles will form around your leak.

Water leak on the passenger rug for 2003 Corolla


well if you have water or coolant leaking on to the rug in your car, first you must remember that every car has 2 radiators. One for the Engine which is in the front of your car under the hood and one for your heater, which is usually hidden deep behind the dash inside of your car. So if you are leaking fluids on to the rug in the car; Im 90% sure its going to be something dealing with the heater radiator. What you have to do is find out where your heater radiator is on your car and check all the hoses.

Clear Oil leak on Mitsi Mirage 1989


could the clear oil actually be water?. if it is leaking out in the area around or behind the passenger side front wheel on hot days, it is probably water from your A/C, system. it has an overflow or drainage pipe, as the process of cooling the air dehumidifies it and produces water. just a guess though
