Water leak on the pasenger side under the glove box .only when it rains


Unless your car is badly rusted from road salt, it is most likely the car was in a car wreck, improperly repaired.
I have seen and worked on both situations.
One place to start would be to remove the carpeting and see if you can see any defects of bent metal or rust.
Then, turn a garden hose on the outside and see where the car is leaking inside.
Finally, you may be using a combination of repair materials to stop the leak.
(Metal patches, "bondo", spray undercoating, etc., etc).
God bless your efforts.

Getting wet


The divider is generally not sealed at all, just a lump of metal reinforcement, the coolant may have pooled at the rear. The water will evaporate from the coolant mixture but the coolant will stay a long time so it'll have to be vacuumed out, add water and vacuum some more to pull it from the carpet and padding as much as possible. You can verify whether it's coolant or just rainwater by smelling the carpet. You may be nose blind to it by now from driving the car so have someone else sniff the carpet if you don't detect any coolant smell yourself. It'll also feel more slick than straight water if it's coolant so that's another way to ID the liquid. Option three is a cat or dog, they'll likely try to lick it if it's coolant but don't let it clean the carpet for you unless you dislike the animal.

I have a water leak on the left side of my Volvo 1985 760 Turbo


I had this same problem on a '92. Get the carpet out even if you have to cut it out and dry the car with a space heater or blow dryer. Cover with a canvas to keep water out. Get under the car and look for holes in the floor or firewall allowing rainwater in. You may need to do as I did and remove the hood, left front fender, wipers, and louvered wiper panel, to look for holes. Use a garden hose to find leak. I found 3 rust holes in the firewall, using a strong flashlight and mirror to see hidden areas. I patched with metal patches, silicone, and roofing tar.

What would cause wet carpet and water on the passenger side floor


there is a leak because the foam has disintegrated, or the seal has broken open down by where the feet of the passenger is. Rust stains tell me that the leak may be caused by a break in the body somewhere.

Try spraying expanding foam in the area between the plastic and the metal parts to try to seal out moisture from coming into the passenger compartment.

You may be able to cut a part of the frame and get a wrench on the nut. But professional help is what you need. I assume its from the wonderful North where salt is used to melt snow?

Water is saturating my passenger side floorboard in my 2002 Tahoe. I've had a mechanic look at it and he check the normal compressor drain valve and blew it out, although my floorboard continues to get...


It may be a heater core. i say "may" only because im not sure if yours is located there. but this is something i have run into. look under the hood passenger side fire wall. look for two water lines going into the firewall. this will tell you where your heater core is located. should be passenger side, under the dash.
hope this helps.
