Question about 2004 Toyota Corolla
It recently rained the past two days and this morning I found my floorboard soaked on the driver side. It is only in the front and was enough to soak a towel I used to sop it up. This is the first time I've ever had this problem and have had the car almost 4 years. A week or so ago I had the cap of my cologne bottle pop off and went down into the front defog vent near the windshield. I don't know if this could be clogging something or not because whenever I turn left now the passenger side vent makes a weird noise but then stops after a few seconds. I've taken off the passenger air conditioning vent but couldn't feel anything.
It's not the air conditioning because the problem happened after a rainfall. The air conditioning would cause a wet rug while the air is on and it is very warm and humid outside. Then I could see a plugged drain causing the issue. It may be a leak around the windshield area or sunroof if you have one.
Start your car and put your fan on high. close the windows and doors. Spray a soap and water solution around the outside of the car starting around the windshield area. Look for bubbles forming. When you find the bubbles you found your leak.

SOURCE: condensation on floorboards
You can try reaching the drain tube and remove it so you can remove the spray cap. If you can not reach it try removing the cabin air filter (behind the glove box) if your car doesn't have one then you may need to remove the blower motor to reach it.

you need a new module which is located under the passenger seat. also try to stop the flooring from getting soaked.get one from a junk yard or ebay.

The tubing under the dash that comes from the air condition may be stopped up...there may be leafs or trash stopping up hole along the wind shield (Miada convertable problem) if this is the problem flush out the tubes...or your wind shield may be leaking ('87 chevy problem) if it is the windshield try cleaning around and resealing...Mine stopped when I had to have new windshields put in...

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?

a/c drain stopped up. I dont know if you get to it. its a little rubber line under the car, approx where the passengers feet will be. sometimes you can get a piece of wire to unclog it, or if you have access to a air comressor, blow some air up into the hose. You will know when you unclog it, a big rush af water will come out.
