If this only occurs during heavy rain you have a problem with the drains around the bulkhead. Alternatively the heater matrix could be leaking. Check to make sure you are not loosing coolant from the engine. If you find you are constantly topping up the coolant then heater matrix is suspect.

Why is the drivers foot well filling with water on my 2009 volvo XC60 ?


Try cleaning out the small holes between your rocker panels and the sub-structure. They can be barely perceptible, but if you look carefully under the car, they are actually little channels that direct the water flow out of the car that leaks on during heavy rains. Use a coat hanger or other wire to re-open them and let the water out. If not, the floor will continue to get wet until the rockers rust out. Other causes may be seal leaks behind the glass, or trunk seal leaks especially in sedans.

1999 volvo s70 problems What must I do to get the rain water drainage system working properly ?


Do you have a sunroof? Cars have drainage holes up there that often drain into the door jamb on the front doors and sometimes down the rear pillars and behind the trunk/boot lining and exit the car near the wheel wells. Often, the connection at the top to the pipe comes off at the top corner of the windscreen.

Others have the same problem. Sunroof drain mentioned and how to fix.

Hyundai Getz leaks near pedals when raining


My Getz is also having similar problem. I have thrice got water test done from Hyundai server center. After 2nd test they put some sealants underbody and return the car, but still water was leaking in. 3rd time water test, hyundai said its all fine, no problem but still problem persists. It happens when it rains only, so I dont suspect air-con filters or radiator problems. Water pool is created in driver side footwell only. During heavy rain, I tried to troubleshoot but couldnt find any fault point from where water might be leaking inside. Its second year, I have running into this problem, creating stinking smell inside the car due to wet mats. Looks like I need to do away with my car.

Water filling the back passenger side foot well after heavy rain...........the pollen filter was cleaned and does not seem to be the problem..........when shop vacking the well out........I noticed the...


the spacer bar holding the passanger seat in place is cracked/rusting? If so you will need to get the section cut out and a new plate fabricated to fit and welded in. Check the door seals are intact as well, the water might be coming in there down to the lowest point.

My 2001 Passat wagon has an intermittent starting problem, engine turns over but won't catch. Dealer says to replace instrument cluster but not guaranted to fix the problem. Any suggestions appreciated.


I have seen the ignition coil on the 4 cylinder models cause intermitant no start when wet the coil arcs causing loss of spark to the plugs this happens after hard rain falls and engine detailing are some examples.

2003 passat sedan. water on floor and in heater fan


I don't think it has anything to do with the sunroof. I think you have a leak either around the windshield or under the cowl where the wipers are attached. If it's in the cowl area probably over the blower motor housing on the right and the water is following the vent system to the drivers side. Please let me know how you made out.

Thank you
