Water is probably from the fresh air intake located just under the right plastic cowl (lower windshield reveal molding). We see this often in our shop. To access the fresh air intake, remove the right windshield wiper and then remove the screws fastening the cowl to the car body. Remove the right cowl. Just above the rectangle shaped fresh air intake (& cabin filter) should be a bulb shaped strip (approx 12" long). All too often, this strip comes off and no longer diverts water. Glue the strip back onto the firewall above the fresh air intake using weatherstrip adhesive. Reattach parts that you removed and now the water should be diverted to either (or both) side(s) of the cabin filter. Good luck

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.

I have a 2009 cadillac CTS . Twice , onlyon rainy days , the passenger rear window went down by itself . The first time there was a blown fuse ,but not the second ime . Any ideas ?


Water (rain) is no doubt causing the switch or motor to short. Make sure that the door drains are not clogged. the drains are normally a set of two or three small rectangle slots near the bottom of the door, on the inside. If it persists check the wiring inside of the door. If you find any cuts or frays, use a marine grade heat shrink to fix the problem.

There are not any current recalls on this issue and I have not seen any particular issues on this year/make/model I do need to ask if you have a sun roof?

could be that the drains are plugged
either that or you have a seal issue, maybe the door(s) or window

to test, just simulate the situation
have someone stay in the vehicle while you hose the vehicle off without any attachments

spend time and do not move the hose from each section for at least a few minutes while you ensure there is no water instruction


let me know if I can be of any further assistance

1996 Chryslser Sebring Convertible leaks on left side from rain


Water goes between the front and rear window and is supposed to go through a trough and drain out of the bottom of the car. often the drains along the bottom (4 very small slits) get clogged and water will back up into the floorboards. just drive a flat head screwdriver in these slits and it will let the water out! (watch out about 2 gallons came out of mine!)

2000 Grand Cherokee Dashboard leak


Maybe. If you have a fixed antenna on that side of the vehicle, the large rubber gromet on the wire leading into the passenger compartment may have come out, allowing lots of rain water to enter the vehicle. Happened on my 94 and flooded the passenger side.

The drain on the a/c evaporator gets clogged, you have to raise the car on a lift, or get under the car, on the right side of the car under the fire wall you will see a black rubber hose ( about a 1/2 inch in size) pointing down, you will need to blow compressed air in the hose to clear the blockage.

2002 Toyota RAV4 passenger side floor Water


Hi, we also have a 2002 Toyota Rav4 and developed a leak in the front driver's side of the car. After much research, we discovered that the drain wells from our sun/moon roof were clogged. If you have one of these, I suggest that you open the sun roof and look carefully. You will notice some tiny little holes in front and in the rear of the sun/moon roof tracks. Over time, these become clogged with dust and debris. You need to find a long, sturdy piece of thin wire and run it down the holes. To test if you have properly unclogged these, take a small amount of water and pour it down the holes. You should see water coming out of the drain wells under the car around the rear of the front tires. Hope this helps.
