Question about 2004 Toyota Corolla

Water on the front driver side floorboard

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.

SOURCE: floorboards are wet,front and back

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...

SOURCE: 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?

SOURCE: Wet passenger side floorboards - not rain related,

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.

My 2000 ford crown Victoria. Have water on the rear passenger side floor. What could be the problem


Hey Grady..
There are few things that could cause the water intrusion... Is the carpet in the front floorboard wet?.. ..Has it rained recently? This will rule out window seals leaking? Have you opened the trunk and checked to see if water is in the trunk? OK..IF it has not rained, no water in the trunk, AND the front floorboards are wet, then the heater core is leaking...

Grady.. sounds like its either the window seals or the door seals.. check for damaged door seals, cracked window seals..

Water on drivers side floorboard . Why?


If you have a sunroof it could be the drain that follows the front pillar letting out under the front fender. These hoses are known to plug and crack open releasing water into the floorboards.

Driver side door check along top and front edge for tears or twisted looses sections. Internal to the door water can drain down along the window and is released outside the door seal. If the bottom of the door has the opening that releases the water plugged then water will drain over into the floorboard.

Water is running under my dash onto floorboard in my 2007 dodge caliber after it rains. Where is the water comming from


You need to find the conduits for rain - one of them has a leak in it probably from corrosion. Try to locate just where the water is getting in and see if you can use a sealer to stop the water from getting in.

I would remove the glove box and anything else in the way and look for the source when hosing down the car.

How do I stop water/rain from getting in the driver side floorboard


water can only get in around the door seal or weatherstripping. check all that for breaks unless you have rust hole and your car is very old.

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

Floorboard on driver side completely soaked after it rains


If you remove the door rails at the bottom of the doors you'll be able to lift the carpet and visually look for some small drain plug devices. It sounds like one or more of them is missing or that you have lost a seal in the door or window.

2002 Galant, floorboard on driver side completely soaked


try having an assistant 'water'' your car with a garden hose while you're in it.especially check seals at windshield & doors.it could take a few minutes of ''watering'' before a leak shows up.

'03 Accord-water leak at rear driver side floor board


I had a similar leak on a 1995 Accord. I traced the issue to the plastic liner behind the door panel. The seal was broken at the bottom and water would leak from that to the rubber weatherstrip at the bottom of the door that seals at the plastic threshold molding. You can't really see it good until the door panel is removed. The water would drip until it puddled up enough to run over the threshold molding and under the driver's seat. This caused the floorboard behind the driver's seat to be soaked after a rain. I have resealed the plastic lining but of course it hasn't rained since. I'm confident this will solve my problem and hopefully provide you a new place to look for yours.
