This can come from the exhaust. Modern cars use a catalytic converter to reduce emmissions and part of the process can produce water which get s pushed out with the exhaust gases. You mention how large a pool it is. Normal exhaust would produce only a small amount of water.

Another reason could be a bad seal on the trunk which is allowing rain water into the trunk which then drains onto the floor. Check your trunk carpeting for dampness.

Leaking water


Have you had front or rear glass changed? Is there rust around windshield or rear glass? Have someone run water hose over upper glass...while someone inside car inspects for water trail. Hope this helps.

The message window is flashing red and amber light and the letters PECUS S. What does this mean and what should I do about it? My car is a 2002 XKR


You probably driving a mobile swimming pool !

Under the rear seat and the trunk fills with rain water. This corrodes the ECU connections to the on-board control modules.

Common problem with British cars....with the weather in the UK, you'd have thought we could produce water tight cars by now !

Pool of water in footwell behind drivers seat.


Is the water only in footwell behind driver seat? If yes, then have you checked the weather stripping around rear door (assuming that it is 4 doors)? My brother had the same problem, and behold it was the stripping around the door. If you find that is the cause, standard household weather stripping added to door frame will work well.

Water coming in and pooling in the drivers side floorboard


Does it have a sunroof? if it does, check drain hose; poor a cup of water into the area around the drain holes & check for drainage under the car onto the ground. Has it recently had a glass replacement? Get another person to spray the outside of the car methodically from bottom to top slowly while you check for leaks inside the car. Or, turn air on w/all glasses closed, spray soapy water onto suspect areas, leaks will create more bubbles.

Rainwater pooling inside passenger cabin


I suspect that water is pooling in the cowl area (in front of the windshield). Since it's at an angle, the water can't drain out the usual drain. This is also where the air is drawn in for the heat/a/c. I think that the water that collects is flowing in through the climate control system and coming out the floor vent. If you want to test it, jam some paper towels up in the floor vents and recirculating air intake and see if they get wet. If you just want to solve the problem, try backing into the space.

Water on rear floorboards


Under the car are drainvalves in the rockers.
these are small slits with a rubber valve in it, located just before the rear wheel and after the front wheel.
These are stuck, You can open them up by just putting You finger or a screwdriver in there.
I had the same problem, causes water and bad smell in Your car.
This is common by these types of convertibles, and caused by dirt washed in there from rain etc.
No big deal to solve.

To replace weather seals and rear window.


I'm working on the rear window problem with my car -- the convertible top shop told me about options to replace the window (including the fabric, etc around it) or replacing the entire top (the window unit + outside fabric). I'm now looking into temporary fixes...

Meanwhile -- about the water under the seat -- my drain holes were plugged -- they unplugged them for me -- the water going through the window was carrying debris down and plugged them up -- so check that out so at least water won't sit there. YUCK! I'm tired of bailing.

I would like to hear if you found a solution.
