It must be the seal around the windshield or pass door not sealing properly. Was the car in an accident? Even if it wasn't this is a job for a body shop

Hyundai Getz leaks near pedals when raining


My Getz is also having similar problem. I have thrice got water test done from Hyundai server center. After 2nd test they put some sealants underbody and return the car, but still water was leaking in. 3rd time water test, hyundai said its all fine, no problem but still problem persists. It happens when it rains only, so I dont suspect air-con filters or radiator problems. Water pool is created in driver side footwell only. During heavy rain, I tried to troubleshoot but couldnt find any fault point from where water might be leaking inside. Its second year, I have running into this problem, creating stinking smell inside the car due to wet mats. Looks like I need to do away with my car.

WHITE SMOKE, ENGINE NOT WORK


White smoke means you're vaporizing water. It could be a culmination of things.

1. You've got coolant leaking through your headgasket
2. You've managed to get water in your exhaust through condensation or rain.

When you say it doesn't start what to you mean? It just churns and churns or it doesn't crank.

If it's not cranking at all you may have hydrolocked the engine or simple have a dead battery. Parking down slope can causes water to run into the engine bay. Usually your rubber liners will channel water away from critical components but you do have your major electrical and ECU located in the top left portion of your engine bay. This sits right next tot he windshield and having heavy rains with your car parked down slope will channel alot of water into this area.

Was your passenger footwell damp? The ECU has a firewall gromet that runs to the passenger footwell. Water may drain through this point if it manages to make it's way into the cavity of the ecu bay.

all in all, let the car dry out, give it a go again. Keep your senses at peak, listen for odd sounds, try to get a whiff of that white smoke, check for coolant odor and be prepared to stop if something isn't right. Don't risk a major problem just because you don't want to give up trying to identify a smaller one. It just gets more expensive.

Hope this help.

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 leaking in on passenger side footwell . just bought the car from dealer .took it back for him to sort out .. dont want to be fobbed off by him, so any ideas what the cause could be i would be...


Hi, the water entering the passenger side could be either due to a leakage in the drainage tray at the bottom of the windscreen or a leakage through the window of the passenger side. Remove the carpeting and try pouring water on the windscreen to check. Also remember to leave the doors open when parked in a safe place to allow sunshine and air to dry up the interior. Cheers

Leaks on inside Toyota Corrolla on the passenger side


It could be water condensing from the A/C and dripping onto the passenger rug. Check under the passenger side dashboard, above the footwell, for the drain pipe from the A/C. If it's loose the water may leak into the footwell when the A/C is running. Should be reasonably easy to fix.

I have an audi a4 2002 2.5 tdi sport estate. Last night it was raining cats and dogs all night. I started her up and drove to a right hand bend, as i turned i could hear water rushing from driver side to...


This is a common problem with your shape A4, pre 2001 A4s and old shape A6s. Rain water builds up in the area under the bonnet where your battery is. This can be accessed by removing the long black trim under the windscreen covering the battery. This area has two drain holes with small rubber tubes on it, these tubes get blocked over time by leaves, dirt etc. They need to be unblocked, and the tubes can be completely removed (and left off). This is much easier to do underneath the car but at least one can be done from the top. Its under the battery though. Be aware when you disconnect the battery, you will lose your radio coding.
It needs to be done though as if the water is coming in the car then it must be high. The water has most likely damaged your convenience control unit (electronic control unit) under the carpet of the footwell, this controls the failed electrical items you described. The water can cause further problems, electrical as it submerges the battery! And brakes as the brake servo can **** the water in causing many problems! Well worth getting it out sooner rather than later. Hope this helps and hasnt scared you too much. Good luck

The sunroof drainage gets blocked.

your footwells will fill with water - even under your seats right to the back seats footwells

See two 10mm holes in front sides when sunroof is open.
a) push a flexible cable down from the top - it comes out just behind the front wheels. (use electric three core cable - or TV aerial cable - a hanger is too short) - you need about a metre and a half)
b) remove the inner mudgaurd behind the front wheels (2 screws) you will see the end of the plastic drainage pipes - remove the blocked black rubber cup at the end of these - why they are there is anybody's guess)
