Water drains through slots in the cowl and is channeled down through the door posts to be discharged to the ground. If you live in area where leaves fall from the trees,they tend to work their way into the channels and clog the discharge end. A refashioned (wire) coat hanger is a useful tool for removal.

Why does drivers side floor stay wet


You don't way what type of vehicle you are driving. I will assume it has a sun or moon roof. Most of these have drain lines that run down inside the driver's side door pillar and exit through the floor pan onto the ground. Over time, these drain hoses dry out and shrink, often retracting into the drivers side kick panel. Then, all the rain water that drains from the sunroof will leak out onto the drivers side floor. If that is the case, you will need to remove the drivers side kick panel and repair or replace the drain line and reroute it through the exit hole in the floor pan.

2009 Mazda 3 found water puddled under floor mat on drivers side, where is it coming from?


Could be condensation from the air conditioner. This normally drains out a tube near the glove box, onto the ground. If this drain tube comes off or is clogged, the water will drain into the interior of the car instead.
Could also be a leak around the windshield, door, or sunroof.
When do you notice it most? Warm humid days, or after a rain or car wash?

I can hear water sloshing whenever I break suddenly. Sounds like it's coming from inside the right side dash or door? We recently had 7 in of rain within a two day period & my '05 Camry sat in the...


The water probably went down between the window and the door. On the bottom of the door is a drain hole, with all that rain it looks like the water in the door washed some dirt or something over the hole and stopped it up but not before it went inside the car and onto the carpet. Just unplug the hole with a small stick or something and watch for the water drain out. Open the doors and let your car dry out. Should be O.K.

Water pooling under passenger floor mat. is there a drain which might be clogged?


water from rainfall or water appearing on a dry day? if it's not rain it could be a cloged a/c evaporator drain. this might be hard to find. look for a clear hose (sometimes with a flap on the end) on the other side of dash (in the engine bay passanger side).

Everytime it rains really hard rain gets in the car. There is a 2 or 3 inches in the passenger side floor board.


I have the same problem with my 91' 318. Water is coming in from the outside air intake at the base of the front windshield, under the black vent covers. If the basin fills up, water enters the vent system throught the outside air intake. Solution: there is a drain line at the fire wall, easily accessible between the firewall and engine block. It drains water from the basin. It becomes clogged with dirt, and prevents water from draining. However, after further inspection of mine I noticed that during periods of HEAVY rain, even a clean drain line is inadequate to drain that volume of water and the same happens. See attached link. Good Luck
