SOURCE: why is th carpet wet behind the driver seat in my '02 thunderbird

This can be from one of couple sources. One would be a broken or missing rubber seal in the firewall. Water can and will enter the passenger compartment if the seal is not good or missing. The firewall is the metal between the engine compartment and passenger compartment. There are many penetrations in the firewall for throttle linkage, steering column, electrical harness, etc. All of these penetrations have seals to prevent water from entering. Check to make sure all penetrations have seals. Inspect from under hood and from under the car, too.

Another source is damage to the floor pan. If you went over a rock or jagged object without having enough clearance, it may have punctured or even sliced through the floor - under the carpeting and sound deadening material under it. If you live in a cold area, and the roads are treated with salt or chemicals to melt ice, it may have caused rusting holes to appear in the floor pan. Water spraying up from tires would enter through the puncture or slice and the carpet would wick the water in. It would take a long time to dry and give a musty smell after just a short time. You should inspect the floor pan from underneath the car. Look for punctures, slices and rust / rot. Clean and seal any openings found in the floor pan and firewall.

Fixed windows and glass in the car body are also sources for leaks. The is especially true if glass has recently been replaced. Many times, the back window leaks into the trunk or metal under the rear seat - and flows to the carpeted floor. Look in the trunk at the bottom of the rear window. Side windows can leak, too - so don't forget to look behind trim interior panels on the sides of the back seat. Your leak could be coming from the windshield, too - this will be harder to locate through the dashboard - but you may find water dripping from wires, etc. Look for evidence of water / rust. Clean and reseal body / glass joints when found.

Good luck!

Why is flooring on drivers side wet during heavy rain along with flooring directly behind driver seat (in back seat area)??


If passenger side is dry it would point to a problem with the door seals on the drivers side either a door or sunroof if you have one. If there is that much water you could sit in the car, have someone use a garden hose or pressure washer on the door and sunroof to see where the leak comes from.

Wet driver side floor


I used to get water in my trunk when it rained hard. I re-caulked the rear window and it stopped. A water leak has a capillary effect meaning it will follow ridge lines and can appear in unlikely areas after it flows downward. I sometimes get water on my driver side door when I wash the car and spray sideways to rinse. I would check all your rubber seals around the windshields and doors.

The floor behind my passanger seat is always wet. There is not a sweet smell and the water is not sticky. It actually has a slight foul odor, I think it is from the carpet being we so long. I it can'


check under drivers side carpet under fuel pedal, there should be a small black hose which is supposed to run through a hole in the floor to the outside. This is a condensation drain tube. If it is not draining it will follow channels in floor to the back drv side floor well.

Water in getting in floor behind driver seat


Remove the Cowl vent panel under the wipers. Each corner in the basin has a square drainage hole. Make sure they are clear with a blower or long wire. They get clogged with leaves and debris. Test it by pouring water and see if it drains under the fender. Drill additional drain holes if you want, at the bottom of this metal basin. On the back of this basin you will see a large rectangular hole where the air is sucked in for the heater. That is where the water gets into if the drainage is clogged. It then shoots through the vent under the drivers seat, aiming to the rear. that is why you get a wet rear floor.

Floor behind driver seat is wet.


For sure there's a leak somewhere.
check if there's no damage or defects in the door rubbers, check if you can find another wet areas to help you find the leak.
There's a few holes in the floor covered with plastic caps, check if there some missing and if they're not damaged.

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?
