From you description it might be in the rocker panel ( that section under the door ). Some cars have a small rubber plug on the inside underneath to let the water out and if there is water in there I would think that the car has been submerged lately and there will be a rust problem very soon. This rocker panel is the basic strength of the car and if it rusts will mean the car will be put off the road for safety reasons. Try doing a search of the history of the vehicle through insurance , registration, finance . A possible fix is to drill a small hole at the lowest point and let the water out and inject a large amount of water dispersant inside , let it drain out and then fill the cavity with a good quality rust inhibitor . Talk with a panel beater as to ideas to be used.

Yes there is. The drain should come down from the heater core area (behind the glovebox) and down under the car. Yours is either clogged, or for some reason has been pulled off the core, so that water just flows from the heater core drain nipple directly into the car.

SOURCE: In the past I have had major water leaks in my

the 2005 grand prix model has a known issue with the plastic cowl molding below the front windshield on the passenger side. over time, the sun will cause the plastic to warp and pull away from the windshield; allowing water to run into the engine compartment, into the blower motor, and possibly into the floor of the passengers seat. underneith the warped cowl is a plastic drain pan that is supposed to deflect any water away from the blower motor. It is likely that this plastic drain pan has shifted or popped loose. this is an easy fix.

open the hood, and pull out the three black plastic retaining pins that hold down the cowl. lift off the passenger side cowl and you'll see the plastic drain pan. ensure the pan is pushed tightly against the back and slid all the way to the left. then put the plastic cowl back on and you're done.

also, water leaking into this area is a common cause for the air conditioner blower motor to stop working. So the sooner you fix this problem, the less likely you'll have problems with your blower in the future.

Itmay be a foreign object inside the blower motor, a bar blower motor or your engine is bad, have a technician scan it to be shure.

SOURCE: My passenger side floor is

If you can smell a little bit of a sweet smell from the water on the passenger side floor, or if it has an oily film to it, you may have a leaking heater core.

They usually leak on the passenger side floor, and that might explain why you hear water sloshing around.

If you can run the engine for about 5 minutes and then turn your heater on. Look under the dash in the area where the dash meets the floor board and see if you can see anything leaking.

I hope this helps you.

Water collects on the drivers side floor when it rains. Sometimes i also find the back floor wet. I have a 2002 x-type jaguar. Where should i look and how can i fix this? The car doesn't have a sunroof.

Check your door seals. There is a seal on the body and one on the door. Check those first. If they are in tact, then check the outside of your windshield. If it is rusting, that can be the cause. A fast way to find the leak is taking it to an automatic car wash. If you dont see where the water is coming in with the high pressure wash, you will probably hear it with the air blower. Good luck.

My 2006 pontiac g6 is leaking water and we dont know where it is coming from. the doors and windows are all dry. the floor is completely soaked

you will need to pull down the headliner around the sunroof, the drain tubes in the four corners come off constantly, I usually glue them back on to prevent this problem from recurring

My yukon rear ac i think! got my rear rear carpet all wet im thinking ac drain plug but dont really know how it works any ideas thanks ronn

The A Pillar is filling up with water and running out the hole where the front kick panel attaches. I took me 6 months to find this and a snake camera from Harbor Freight. The water runs down under the sill and soaks the front and back carpets. Seal the door hinges and the door grommet where the wires go from the pillar to the door with silicone black. Pull out the grommet and seal around it well. I also drilled a drain hole into that cavity just under that pillar but behind the front of the door bottom corner so it cant be seen with the door closed. No more problems!!!

Appears that there is water somewhere in the back portion of the vehicle. When turning a corner can hear water flowing. Have had gas tank full & low, same noises. Could water be trapped in the frame?...

I'm guessing it's a door. There should be drain holes in the bottom to let any water out, but they get plugged up. Open the doors quickly, and while open, yank the door back and forth to see if you hear the water sloshing around. It should be relatively easy to figure which door it is if you can hear it while driving. If you can't find it in the doors, check the lower quarter panels in the cargo area of the vehicle. If the spare is stowed under the floor, pull the panel covering it and check there too. Let me know where you find your lake.

Wont start

Inertia switch located on the passengers side (under the dash). You may need to remove a small door to get access to it. If you have not been in an accident, then it was probably tripped accidentally. Simply press the button, and it will reset. This should get your car running again. Good Luck!
