SOURCE: Water in Passenger footwell

Tracking water leakage in cars is often not easy. However, in your case, I would start with the windshield. Was it recently replaced? If so, the seal might not be fine. Check the windshield rubber trim cover that runs around the top and bottom of the windshield to see if it is coming off from the frame of the car. It doesn't take much for water to get behind it if it is even slightly up.

While you are doing that, check around the top of the door frame. Many a time, water will travel down the contour of the door by the hinges and enter the footwell area if the rubber gasket has been compromised in any way.

Finally, check to make sure that the firewall of the vehicle does not have any rusted hole or improperly installed rubber bushing or gasket on the firewall that could allow water to run along any wires or cables there and trickle into the vehicle. I hope I have been able to help you with this problem. Good luck.

SOURCE: Seat Alhambra 1996 1.9L water leak drivers footwell

the water can travel along surfaces or beams in the car so you cannot tell where it is actually leaking. in my ford windstar water leaked in right over the fuse box. it ran along a cross beam from the passenger side. if it has those plastic strips they use to go in between small gaps in the metal... like along the roof where the roof is and the metal of the sides joins it is likely they are leaking. best to take a garden hose and have someone inside the car with a flashlight on the floor looking for leaks

SOURCE: water in footwell passanger side after rain

Open the front doors and look for a small black tube sticking out the door jamb. Slice the tip off with a razor blade. This is your sunroof drain.

Have a mechanic check underneath of the battery for debris blocking the battery pan drains and that the cabin filter cover is on tightly and sesled with silicone.

Why would my floor board on the drivers side have a puddle of water? I did just replace a heater core. i thought that would solve the problem.

So you're saying you replaced the heater core because water was puddling on the driver's side, but water is still puddling on the driver's side? I'm assuming you're in the US and the driver's side is on the left and the heater core is on the right side.
Do you get much rain where you live? Is the vehicle parked outside? Do you notice the puddling more often after a rain? If this is the case, your water intrusion may be because of a leaking seal around the windshield or door. Check by getting the floor reasonably dry, and then have someone sit inside while another floods your car with a garden hose - specifically the windshield and driver's door. Have the inside observer try to catch a stream of water along the edge of the windshield, along the door jam, or along the door sill.

How to check Saab 9-3 inner door membrane

`Your door has drain holes on the bottom. Poke a stick up them to make sure they're not plugged. I think you'd hear the water sloshing around if enough were to accumulate to drain into your floor. The membrane is a plastic water shield, glued to the door frame just behind the panel. It just provides a water-tight seal for the electrical switches and connectors in back of the door panel, and to prevent door panel from rotting or getting mold. Water and moisture get into the inside of door from rain on outside of glass. Should drain out the bottom. The membrane just protects back side of door panel and the electrical stuff.
Hope you find where it comes from.

I would say you have either a bad seal on the windshield or the seal on the passenger door opening.

I have water on the passenger Floor. I have ExactMats on them that cover the stock mats and they had water standing on them. About 10 cc. I don't see anyware that it might be dripping. the floor is wet...

1. If you have had the windscreen replaced at any time then water can enter through poor re- sealing work at the base of the glass and will find it's way to the floor behind the interior trim panels.

2. Check the rubber seals around the door and around the body work for the door aperture. Water can enter at the bottom of the door and run over the sill scuff plates on to the floor. (Have there been accident repairs to the door?) Also check that the door is sitting correctly in the closed position.

3. Remove the interior trim on the door and check that the plastic liner between the steel door and interior trim is in tact.( It might be advisable to have an experienced person do this for you.) If the liner is loose rather than sealed to the door panel, water build up from inside the door with heavy rain will run past the door trim and on to the floor.

Check the drain holes in the bottom of the doors and make sure that none are blocked or partially blocked up. Otherwise water will build up inside the door panel.

A heavy down pour of rain will test water sealing in any car. I suggest you test for water entry by running a hose for a few minutes over specific areas on the windscreen, on the door glass and around the door perimeter. Have someone sit in the car while you do this to watch for water entry. Test one area at a time and keep water off the area you are not testing as much as possible.

Test 1. The windscreen

Test 2 Run water over the door glass and some will run into the door.

Test 3 Run water around the full perimeter of the door (right on the panel gaps).

My 05 corolla is kept in uncovered storage outdoors and due to my current job it does not move alot. Recently (last 4 months) Every time I go into the car after it rains heavily there is pooled water...

first park your car where the back is flat then spray with a water hose on the back widow only and if you still have water go to a glass shop and let them seal your glass properly water is going in the car because there is a leak in the is or when you drive in the rain the water is coming up in the wheel well

Floor carpet in rear is wet.

If it is not the drainage holes from the sunroof as suggested above, then it is almost certainly the seal at the bottom of the door nearest the wet patch. Remove all plastic interior door trim and you will see a rubber seal running around the lower part of the door which prevents water ingress. With age, the seal leaks and water enters the inside of the vehicle at the bottom of the door. It is easily resealed with a suitable sealant from an autoparts' shop. About one hour's labour. Good luck.
