Re: water accumulates on floor - not antifreeze.
You may have a corporate telephone number on the bill or in your car manual. Call them about the work. If this is a problem in hot weather with the A/C on it, is a drain tube in the A/C ducts. The tube is plugged under the hood.
The "O" ring thing is not easy to figure out when we do not know where the carpet is wet at. Is it the rear of the car? The sliding door? Let Fixya know and someone may have fixed a similar problem.

I purchased my 05 ford freestar fall 2013 and it had the same problem. I had a couple of fuses removed from the fuse box under the hood which solved the problem for a while but one of the fuses controlled the heat so I needed to find the problem. Right after I bought it I got a letter in the mail from Ford to get the tourk converter changed at their dealership. After that was done I assumed I still had the battery drain and took it to a shop to get it looked at. The guy put all the fuses back in and had a tester on it all day and could'nt find a drain. I took it home and have'nt had a problem since. A friend of mine thinks that when they changed the tourk converter at Ford it may have corrected the problem. Maybe there was a pinched wire somewhere that got loose when they took the transmission out. If you have not gotten any recall letters in the mail call your local Ford dealership and ask if there are any recalls on your van. If there are they have to fix them free of charge and if your lucky like I was maybe the issue with the battery will be corrected.
Yeah ford would just replace it , You need a company that installs sun roofs they may well have just the seals for this sun roof , I would google sunroof installers in you area and see if there is one local who will fix this . I would say this is also not helping with you other problems .
There a heater control valves behind the dash which is either broken or have gotten stuck. The valve behind the dash act as on and off switch as as you would turn your faucet on and off. they tend to get stuck due to heat. The valve basically allowed hot antifreeze water to flow though the heater core giving you heat. when the valve broken or stuck open, the hot antifreeze will continuous flow to the heater core, therefore is the reason why you get constant heat. It a nightmare to fix, you will have to take the dash apart to get to it. the part run somewhere in 40 bucks. if your not mechanical incline, my suggestion would be the next time you get oil change from your local chevy dealership is to ask around those GM mechanic (Do not ask the Manager) and see who does side work; negoiate with him this way you will save big buck on dealership shop hours. Have only authorize GM to do the repair, not your local repairshop. Tearing into any automotive dashboard its every mechanics nightmare. Good luck!!!
this is an easy fix and I would have a friend help you. If you have any problems or need pictures, go to a local parts place and they will have a repair manual for your car.
The standard water pump price is arround $120 so the dealership is just charging you arround $85/hour to do the work.
Make sure you replace your antifreez fluid and your thermostat at the same time, bc it is your thermostat which creates problems in the first place.
First you have bad antifreez or old antifreez, which usually acts as a lubricant for the thermostat, the thermostat freezes up, overheats the car, and the bad antifreez gets rusty, creating the erosion on the water pump.
To fix this problem, get your antifreez changed at least once a year.
