    My guess is that your windshield is leaking and the water is running around the moulding to the handles and coming out the screw holes.



    To check this, I would remove the moulding around the top of the windshield and down the side to the handles. You'll probably see rust.



    Do you see any evidence of moisture or rust around the top of the windshield on the inside?

There is water leaking inside above my passenger side door when it rains pretty hard?


is the water leak allowing the water to wick up into the headliner or is the headliner getting wet without water coming past the weather stripping around the door?

If it is wicking then fix the weather stripping.
If the water is getting headliner wet with out passing the weather stripping then you have a leaking sun roof.

You can the door seal by sitting in the car while you have some spray water (garden hose) gentle at the frontal and upper door seal.
If not leak there inspect seal of sun roof and real seal with correct type of sealant.

If you have a wet seat then it is likely defective weather stripping around the window.

Try this. If the floor is dry, then it rains and the floor remains dry, only gets wet after a drive in the rain or on wet streets, you may have a hole somewhere.

Check for holes from missing rubber grommets or holes in the floorboard or firewall from rust. Check for any rust holes or missing rubber grommets under the car or on the firewall, anywhere water can splash up into the vehicle from driving in rain or running through puddles..

Check wet spots along the carpeting all the way up under the dash, if the wet spot is higher than the floor itself, you could be getting the water from splashing through puddles.

Any holes under the car or in the fenderwell even up on the firewall can cause this problem.

First check for any obvious signs of rust, if none are found then look for missing or defective rubber grommets.

2007 Civic EX...found the carpet wet...I dried this out and after rain, it is wet again. It is not the slanted part behingd the brake pedal. It is the flat part of the floor...driver's side.


Sometimes tough to find. If it only gets wet when driving, the problem could be in the floor pan...possibly a rubber stopper missing. If it happens when it rains without driving, may be in a door seal or coming thru the windshield gasket. Water leaks also can come in on one side and follow other objects then drip somewhere else, (because of surface tension). You can take a water hose and wet one section at a time to try and narrow down the source of the leak. Has the car had body work done? If so, look at the repaired area. Look at rubber seals around the doors and windows. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!

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

Engine cant start whenever it is raining


check on the passanger side of the car to see if the floor is getting wet as well because it sounds as if your computer is getting wet behind the glove box while at home on a nice day wash the car and check it all over for leaks because the computer or something is getting wet in the car it may be a bad seal around the windshield

Wet Headliner


You likely have a water leak around the 3rd brake light mounted on the top rear of the cab. I had this same issue on my 96 Ranger Supercab and found that the foam seal had gone bad and was allowing water to leak into the back of the headliner around the light fixture. It ended up soaking the headliner from one side to the other as the headliner acts as a 'wick'. You can repair this issue by either replacing the sealant around the 3rd brake light or replacing the brake light. There are two screws which secure the 3rd brake light assembly to the back of the cab. Remove these and it will pop right out. I upgraded mine to an LED light when I replaced it. That solved two issues at once as I'll never need to change a bulb there again. If you want to be cheaper you can not replace the light and just seal it with rubber silicone sealer.
