You have to get in your car with a flash light and the door and windows closed. Have some one spray the car with a hose while you check around the door seal and the windshield coming down from behind dash. also this is a little harder but if you don't find a leak there get could be from under the car, coming in while driving. So you just have to start and check all seals and seams(under car) near the drivers side. Leaks can be a pain and a pain to find. Just take your time and you'll find it. Once you find the leak that will determine what and how to fix it.

2009 Chevy HHR water in floor passenger side front and back after heavy rain car was just sitting all day not driving where did 2 inches of clear water in floor come from,


The high-level intake at the base of the windshield directs rain water through channels behind the door pillars to the street. If the channels become clogged with leaves and debris, the rain water can leak inside.

Lots of rain water leaking into front passenger foot rest.


Are you certain it is rain water? It could be condensation from the A/C coil that fails to drain out of the drain pan, or possibly coolant from a leaking heater core. If you are certain it is rain water, depending upon the age of the vehicle, and possibly some other things, here are the possible options:

  1. Leaking door gasket.
  2. Leaking windshield seal due to rust
  3. Leaking windshield seal due to improper installation
  4. Leaking windshield seal due to acoustic (sound) over pressure (if you have extreme sound system with heavy bass)
  5. If you have a sunroof, if the drain hose comes down the passenger side door column, it could be leaking into the passenger compartment rather than drain through the floor pan.

Where should I look for rain water leak?


Most water leaks come from around the windshield area. Has the windshield been replaces recently? If so it may not be sealed properly. Another area where water may penetrate is through the cowling area under the wiper blades/arm where fresh air enters the car. There are water drains under this cowling allowing water to drain and if they are plugged with leaves/debris, water will enter the vehicle. Is the vehicle rusted around the windshield area? If so, suspect this to be the source of water intrusion. Most glass/windshield repair companies will diagnose water intrusion problems

Why is flooring on drivers side wet during heavy rain along with flooring directly behind driver seat (in back seat area)??


If passenger side is dry it would point to a problem with the door seals on the drivers side either a door or sunroof if you have one. If there is that much water you could sit in the car, have someone use a garden hose or pressure washer on the door and sunroof to see where the leak comes from.

Major water leak when it rains, water runs down driver side floor


Keep looking by covering area at hood etc and running water on the vehicle to locate where it is coming in---Windshield?

This is the best way if you cannot trace the stains from water to source.

Water in floor on drivers side front and rear


Firstly is it rain water or coolant? dab it with a kleenex and see if it is coloured if it is then the heater core is leaking, if not then you have to hunt for the leak, water will travel from the front to back so see if water is coming from the bottom of the door trim and flooding over the rubber seal, otherwise look carefully around the screen, then you have to search under the dash, it is a detective job. has anything happened recently to the Jeep?
