Water coming in...

I inherited a 99' Vette from my dad and water seems to be coming in from the floor when it rains. The floor mats and trunk get soaked. What is the problem and how much to fix it?

05 Reo Trunk fills up with water. Gasket replaced but didn't solve problem.


After it rains have you noticed and water drips that might give you a clue as to where the water is coming from? It might be leaking around the base of the back window. Does the water come in only when the car has been driving or does it come in while the car is parked? If the water is coming in while its parked then there is a hole somewhere on top, probably around the back window, and is running into the trunk. When its raining or after it has rained look in the trunk and see if you can see water droplets and this should give you a clue where its coming in. You can also hose the car down yourself. This might be a good idea to try when the trunk is dry so you can see what does and doesn't allow water in the car. Try running water on one side at a time. If it only seems to come in after you have been driving the car, it may very well be coming in around the wheel wells or around the gas fill pipe. Look inside the trunk and see if there are any rust spots and use a flash light to see if you can see any holes through the metal. take a close look around the sides on the floor of the trunk and see if there are any pieces of rust accumulating, this might help direct your search for the hole. You may also want to look behind the tail lights and see if there is rust damage. Check the seals around the tail lights and see if its getting in that way. Look behind the licence plate for rust damage as well. Try those things and see how it goes. Good luck.

92 cadillac deville- back seat floor boards fill up with water (rain?) front floors and trunk are damp, have cleaned seals around doors, trunk, hood, etc but back seat floors still fill up almost to the...


Water leaks can be really evasive, It could be coming from the rear glass where it seals against the body or it could be coming from the seams where the quarter panels and roof panels meet. (at the lower corners of the back glass/trunk lid area.) The best way to find these things are to water-test the vehicle. You can look for water entering the trunk area if you can find someone you trust to run water over the trunk and back glass area while you are inside the trunk with a flashlight. If this does not yield any answers, it may be necessary to remove the rear seat and interrior panels and headliner to look for water running into the cabin area. If you see any water, follow it uphill to locate the point of entry. I have even seen windshield area roof leaks fill the rear floor pans of a car that was parked nose-up on a hill.

After it rains water is in trunk Nissan Altima


When diagnosing a water leak, here's a handy tip. Check the accumulated water. If the water is dirty, look for leaks from the underside of the vehicle (floor, wheelwells, etc). If the accumulated water is clean, look for leaks from the topside of the vehicle (trunk seal, window seal, etc). To find where the water is coming from, shut yourself in the trunk with a flashlight and have an assistant run water over the trunk with a garden hose. You may have to remove some of the interior trunk trim to see exactly were the water is coming from, but chances are you'll find it. Also another common cause of water leaks are from impact damage, so check for collision damage repair. while your in there. -hope this helps.

Water in front of the seat behind passenger when rains. Can not figure out where it comes from. Water accumulates even when not driving.


I have a 1993 ParK Avenue, the original owner said that when she purrchased the vehicle new in 1993, she has always had water getting into the trunk, I found water in the passenger rear floor and I assume it is through the trunk, I had water in the trunk, I drilled holes in the trunk , also in the floor of the passenger area, Yesterday I vaccuum the car and the passenger area was dry, I think a little water may enter the trunk but it will drain before it reaches the interior.
