I have a 1997 Citi Chico white. Boot leak!

I have a 1997 Citi Chico, white. As soon as it rains really hard my boot carpet is sopping wet. Any advice to why? When I dry out the boot... there is loads of water under my spare wheel. I also do not see a plug to drain the water out. There seems to be no holes... or am I missing something?

Trunk, and the carpet on the driver's side, incl the back seat carpet is getting saturated! Do not know where all the water is coming from, or why it accumulates in these areas.


Finding water leaks is not really a guessing thing it requires testing with a tool called a rain shower simulator, you then strip the area of all trim and carpet around the suspect leakage and watch for the source of the water intrusion, even the most seasoned technicians hate water leaks, they are a real pain to locate unless there is a factory report and fix, so check with a local new car dealer of your vehicle.

How do i get rid of fish smells out of the carpet in my car?


You may have to have the carpet cleaned as fish smell is hard to remove . You can hire a wet and dry vacuum cleaner from Woolworths , It should do the job.

Buick passenger side front and rear carpets soaking wet


The two most common causes are rain water leaking in or the ac drain being clogged up. I would vote for rain water if the entire carpet area is wet.
Could be coming in around the windshield, or one of the door gaskets.

I have a 1997 Camry, live in Hawaii. No sunroof. It rain very hard for 3 days. The car developed electrical problem with horn and parking lights staying on. Found the carpets damp and the car very musty...


It's possible the water is leaking through the front windshield seal, and making it's way along a wiring harnesses that include connections to the horn and parking lights. If the water gets to the fuse box, located under a panel by the driver's knees (be very careful if it's still wet), more electrical activity. The once wet carpet could become a mold problem. Please take it out and air dry it completely.

I have a 1997 honda civic cx hatchback and there is a really bad water leak on the passenger's side, the carpet gets drenched and water goes all the way into the backseats. anyone know where it's coming...


if this only occurs only when you wash the car or it rains then you either have a rust through at the cowl or front pillar or the seal around the windshield is leaking. sounds like a job for the glass shop. they will remove the glass check for rust and replace the seal.

Leaking roof under passenger seat


Have you cleaned out the drain tubes? There is a 'rain rail' underneath the rear lip, which diverts water off the top and down to tubes on each side. The tubes get clogged up with leaves and whatnot. You can use a coathanger to CAREFULLY clear the debris. Check out www.miata.net for more Miata information than you could imagine.

Happy Motoring!

Water leaking into 2005 Camry 6 cyl under carpet drivers side.


I think that I can help you. It sounds like your drain-tube is plugged up. Get in the passenger side, and pull the carpet back from under the glove box. Look for a black rubber pipe that goes from a black box, and pokes thru the firewall, on the passenger side. Remove the hose from the box, and have a container ready to catch water. If water comes out of the black box, your drain hose is plugged up. Clean out the clog, and you will be golden.

The driver side floor matt gets wet every day, when the ac is on or it rains a lott


I had the same problem not long ago on the driver side when it rained. It turned out that there was a leak where the wiring harness comes in through the driver side of the car. To make sure this is where the leak is coming from you'll have to find where the wiring harness comes inside your car and watch it while someone pours water over your drivers side fender and you'll see the water streaming in pretty good. The best way to fix it is to remove the driver side fender so you can get to the rubber boot that seals the hole and remove it, clean it, apply RTV around the hole, replace the boot and apply more sealant around the outside. Also check where the wires go through the boot itself, you should probably go ahead a apply some extra electrical tape there just in case.
Of Course you'll also need to take the carpet out of your car and clean and dry it well.
