SOURCE: water leak in front passenger

The drain hole at the top of the bonnet/ base of windscreen are prob blocked with crud leave and dust. Pop bonnet and clean out the gully at barse of windscreen. Drain holes are in the corners near bonnet hood hinges. Flush out and poke wire though. If the ate blocked the ware will just flood foot wells not drain away.

SOURCE: I have a 1992 Honda Accord and whenever it rains, water leak through the speaker on the passenger side door and make a big puddle on the floor. Also the water leaks into a hole in the floor by the ECU

Not comming from the speaker! Make sure that the rubber door trim aound the door is intact and not damaged. Additionally, check the rubber seal on the outside of the window where it retracts into the door. These are the only 2 ways that water can enter through the passenger door.

Water is leaking in onto the floor on the drivers side. what is it from?


Hi, there are several possibilities. There may be water leaking through the windshield seal and dripping down. You can try applying making tape around the edges of the windshield to see if it stops the leak. If a specific spot can be identified, some silicone RTV sealant can be squeezed in to reseal it. There may be a leak in the body seam at the bottom of the cowl (the well outside the car where the wipers sit under the bottom of the windshield. The cowl well is supposed to collect water draining from the windshield. The cowl is equipped with drain holes. There may be a seam where sheetmetal comes together in the cowl area that is not sealed good. You can try pouring water into the vents at the rear of the hood so the water goes into the cowl, and see if the water appears to enter the vehicle under the dash. Some disassembly is required to reseal the cowl sheetmetal seams.

Leaking inside the car everytime it rains


There is probably a drainage hole underneath the cowling under your windshield wipers. They're supposed to allow the water to drain out into the wheel well. See if the passengers side is plugged up. Collected water has to go somewhere and it will always find a place.

Water on passenger side floor whenever it rains. It seems to be coming for under the dash. and only happens when it rains.


You would have a leak. I would take it to a GM dealer. Could be coming from the windshield and leaking by the firewall.

Whenever it rains my floor on the passenger side of the car has water on it. It seems to be coming from the dash. And this only happens when it rains.


We see this often. There is a rubber bulb type molding (similar to a door or trunk seal) that is approximately 12" attached just above the fresh air intake that's in the firewall on the passenger side. Quite often this rubber part comes off and water is no longer diverted and instead pours directly through your cabin filter (if you have one) and into the right floorboard. To correct it, remove the right windshield wiper and right side of the lower windshield reveal molding (plastic cowling). Apply weatherstrip adhesive into the "U" shaped molding and re-apply into place directly above the cabin filter and fresh air intake. Replace the cowling and wiper. Good luck

2003 Impala leaks


There could be water filling in the HVAC intake located in front of the winshield. The drains may be clogged and not releasing rain water. Unfortunately the only way to resolve this problem is removing the entire dashboard and accessing the inner core of the HVAC system.
