We see this often. There is a rubber bulb type molding (similar to a door or trunk seal) that is approximately 12" attached just above the fresh air intake that's in the firewall on the passenger side. Quite often this rubber part comes off and water is no longer diverted and instead pours directly through your cabin filter (if you have one) and into the right floorboard. To correct it, remove the right windshield wiper and right side of the lower windshield reveal molding (plastic cowling). Apply weatherstrip adhesive into the "U" shaped molding and re-apply into place directly above the cabin filter and fresh air intake. Replace the cowling and wiper. Good luck

First thing is to make sure that you don't have debris under cowl panel blocking your drains,because water can back up and come in your fresh air inlet duct.If that is ok then you will need to take to someone who can water test to find out if it is the windshield that is leaking or a body seam.

I have a 1992 Honda Accord and whenever it rains, water leak through the speaker on the passenger side door and make a big puddle on the floor. Also the water leaks into a hole in the floor by the ECU


Not comming from the speaker! Make sure that the rubber door trim aound the door is intact and not damaged. Additionally, check the rubber seal on the outside of the window where it retracts into the door. These are the only 2 ways that water can enter through the passenger door.

My passenger side floor is saturated with water when it rains. When I make right turn I hear what seems like water sloshing.


Hello,
If you can smell a little bit of a sweet smell from the water on the passenger side floor, or if it has an oily film to it, you may have a leaking heater core.

They usually leak on the passenger side floor, and that might explain why you hear water sloshing around.

If you can run the engine for about 5 minutes and then turn your heater on. Look under the dash in the area where the dash meets the floor board and see if you can see anything leaking.

I hope this helps you.

Water Leak in Passenger Side Floor Vent Area after car wash


Unless this happens in the rain as well, I would not worry about it. Likely in the car wash, far more water is coming in than the normal drain system can handle, therefore causing it to overflow. If you do have a drain obstruction, find the drain hose (small right angle hose on firewall passenger side) and roll it in your fingers to clear it.

Water coming in to front passenger floor when it rains


The heater/airconditioner box under the dash has a drain hose to allow condensation to drain when the air conditioner is running. If this hose gets plugged, rain may accumulate in this box also (if it's raining heavily), as it comes in through the fresh air intake.

Look on the engine side of the firewall, probably on the passenger side, for a hose coming through the firewall that is not connected to anything. It is usually short, has a 90 degree bend, and the open end is down. Make sure that the end of this hose is not plugged.
