Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

My 03 tahoe has a soaking wet driver side floor board. It's rained a ridiculous amount here in MA. Can't find the leak. Shop said I could be the clogged drain hoses for sunroof, but my sunroof doesn't work. I just recently bought this vehicle.

Check all rubber seals for wear or breaks (especially the sun roof) and around any glass. That may be why the sun roof doesn't work anyway...water gets in and rusts mechanism. I would start up top first, then work down.

    Thanks for your response. There is no water leaking from the roof or windows.
    Nothing wet other than drivers carpet.

    OK....next, check floor pan by lifting carpet. Look for rust spots and holes. From under the car you need to check for scrapes and holes caused by stone chips etc.

    The thing is the truck has been parked for 2 weeks. So, I doubt the water is getting in from beneath the floor pan. Could it be coming from cowl? Cowl drains aren't clogged though. Frustrating.

  • gmduvall Dec 16, 2014

    Pour water down the driverside air vent, if water comes through the firewall, then your cowl needs a deeper clean.

    Thank you. I'll try that too.

Leaking driver's side floor pan.


Water is probably coming from behind the dashboard. It will be from the windshield or the firewall that water is getting in.

Drive side soaked floor boards.


Could be a plugged drain for the windshield or cowl vents, or the door gasket.
You could try using a garden hose or take it to a body shop.

You may have to take it to a body shop to find the problem.

My floor boards in my Cavalier are Soaked ..


If you've been using your air conditioner during this time, and it hasn't rained at all, then the small drain at the bottom of the a/c evaporator core may be plugged. When you use the a/c to cool the car the evaporator coil [located next to the heater core in the ductwork under the dash] is very cold and moisture from the hot humid air condenses on it as a result. This condensation dribbles down the core and accumulates in the plastic housing under it where it should then drain out a small hole and drip onto the ground. If the small drain gets plugged, which happens quite often, then the water fills up the housing until it overflows and then runs out and soaks the carpet on the front passenger side. The drain is located on the engine side of the firewall, passenger side, down low where the firewall begins to curve under. Usually a puff of air will clear the clog and the drain will work fine again. If the carpet is really wet it would be a good idea to remove it and get everything dry again as it tends to get pretty smelly if left wet. One last note: usually a leaky a/c unit will only make the passenger side carpet wet unless it's been leaking for a long time while a leaky windshield seal can make both sides wet depending on where it is leaking. Good luck, hope this helps you out!

2001 Pontiac Sunfire passenger floor is soaking wet after rain.


This is either two things. 1: The air conditioner condenser is leaking and will have to be siliconed, or you have a bead door or other weather stip that is allowing water in.

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?

Wet rear floor


Have you by any chance jacked up the passenger side, or got vehicle on a hoist to make sure there isn't any plugs on the underside that may have fell out? They could be round or oval metal or rubber plugs, probably in that area.
