Floorboard on driver side completely soaked after it rains

The floorboard on driver side is always a little damp... recently had, I believe it was called a pressure test, to see if anything was leaking which came back negative... so I do not think it's the heater cord or any internal leakage. It's been raining a lot lately, and now my floorboard is completely soaked!!! Now it's not just in the front but in the back driverside floorboard as well.

If you remove the door rails at the bottom of the doors you'll be able to lift the carpet and visually look for some small drain plug devices. It sounds like one or more of them is missing or that you have lost a seal in the door or window.

SOURCE: 2002 Galant, floorboard on driver side completely soaked

try having an assistant 'water'' your car with a garden hose while you're in it.especially check seals at windshield & doors.it could take a few minutes of ''watering'' before a leak shows up.

How do I stop water/rain from getting in the driver side floorboard


water can only get in around the door seal or weatherstripping. check all that for breaks unless you have rust hole and your car is very old.

My floorboard keeps getting wet on my chrysler town and country. I had my heater core replaced, but it is still doing it.


Next time it is raining, take a flashlight and look up under the dash to locate the source. Rain that falls into the air intake at the base of the windshield has to drain somewhere. The factory sealant may not be working or there may be leaves clogging the drainage path. Put a piece of newspaper on the floor under the heater core location and run the engine with the heater turned on to detect leakage which may migrate to the driver's side. If this is the source, you should be able to smell antifreeze.

Water leak after rain, rear floorboards soaked? HELP!


a couple things to look at if it has a sunroof the sun roof would have drain hoses that run down in each corner next you need to look at the cowl this is the section in front of the windshield that has a drain on it as well if you find nothing there the next step would be to remove the seats and carpet and sit in the car while running water over it either way you should remove the carpet and make sure it is dry all the way threw or mold will start to grow and you will never get ride of it not good for your heath other key spots to look at is if the windshield was ever replaced it could be a poor seal

1998 Volvo C70 - water on floorboard after rain. Hi, anybody out there having experienced water on the floorboards after rain? My Car is always parked outside on the street, so the weather goes to work on...


most likely cause is water intrusion through the cabin filter

pull the filter
if wet then you need to find something that diverts water away
many OEM's have had this problem but nothing on file for this vehicle

Water on the front driver side floorboard


It's not the air conditioning because the problem happened after a rainfall. The air conditioning would cause a wet rug while the air is on and it is very warm and humid outside. Then I could see a plugged drain causing the issue. It may be a leak around the windshield area or sunroof if you have one.
Start your car and put your fan on high. close the windows and doors. Spray a soap and water solution around the outside of the car starting around the windshield area. Look for bubbles forming. When you find the bubbles you found your leak.

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?
