I had the same problem. This one is a little involved and not for the faint of heart. There is a drain from the sun roof which runs down the passenger side door. There is a rubber gasket just above the vanity mirror that joins a hard metal tube with a flexible plastic tube. Stupid design if you ask me. Anyway, if you remove the screws from the vanity mirror as well as the trim piece that runs down the edge of the door between the windshield and the door, you will probably see a piece of flexible tubing hanging loose. Slide the gasket back together and voila!! No more floods in the passenger seat. Once you have fixed the drain dry out the car with towels and a dehumidifier if possible. Throw a couple boxes of baking soda in (follow directions on box) and you should have a clean dry car in a few hours. I left mine running over night and was dry as a bone and no mold.

I have this same problem. I took it to the dealer and was told that it would cost me 100 dollars to have them look at it and that goes towards parts. I asked them "Why is it that the car isn't recalled since so many people are having problems with the sunroofs?" I was told that "They haven't heard of the problem." I said 'Thats odd seeing as I have a few websites with people complaining about the same problem." The lady then told me that I should look on the internet to see if there was a class-action lawsuit I could join. PATHETIC. I will never buy GM again.

However I hope this fix does work. My father and I are going to give this a shot.

Buick passenger side front and rear carpets soaking wet


The two most common causes are rain water leaking in or the ac drain being clogged up. I would vote for rain water if the entire carpet area is wet.
Could be coming in around the windshield, or one of the door gaskets.

With heavy rains the carpet on my passenger side front is soaked


SOUNDS LIKE THERE IS A LEAK COMING FROM SOMEWHERE! COULD BE A SOFT PLUG ON THE FIREWALL UNDER THE HOOD! IF IT IS REMOVED, WATER WILL ENTER THE CAB THERE! OR POSSSIBLY UNDER THE CAR ON PASSENGER SIDE! IF IT IS UNDERNEATH, THE TRIM, AND CARPET WILL HAVE TO BE RAISED TO REPLACE THE PLUG FROM UNDER THE CARPET!

My floor boards in my Cavalier are Soaked ..


If you've been using your air conditioner during this time, and it hasn't rained at all, then the small drain at the bottom of the a/c evaporator core may be plugged. When you use the a/c to cool the car the evaporator coil [located next to the heater core in the ductwork under the dash] is very cold and moisture from the hot humid air condenses on it as a result. This condensation dribbles down the core and accumulates in the plastic housing under it where it should then drain out a small hole and drip onto the ground. If the small drain gets plugged, which happens quite often, then the water fills up the housing until it overflows and then runs out and soaks the carpet on the front passenger side. The drain is located on the engine side of the firewall, passenger side, down low where the firewall begins to curve under. Usually a puff of air will clear the clog and the drain will work fine again. If the carpet is really wet it would be a good idea to remove it and get everything dry again as it tends to get pretty smelly if left wet. One last note: usually a leaky a/c unit will only make the passenger side carpet wet unless it's been leaking for a long time while a leaky windshield seal can make both sides wet depending on where it is leaking. Good luck, hope this helps you out!

When it rains hard the front passenger side floor of my 97' jeep grand cherokee gets soaked. I can't identify the leak. Any suggestions?


Check the front 'cowl' area, (located between the hood and the windshield). A lot of junk can accumulate inside through the slots. This is where air is drawn into the car for ventilation. If leaves and pine needles build up inside, it can rust through, allowing rain into the vehicle. Also check under the hood, near the passenger compartment, at the fire wall. I have a 96 Pontiac that leaked there into the drivers side due to rusting from leaves and junk. You should also check the windshield seal, and possibly the door seal, as water could enter from one point and travel a ways before hitting the carpet. You might also want to have someone hold a hose on the car, in one location for a while, to see if you can narrow the possible locations. Good luck.

Water leaking into 2005 Camry 6 cyl under carpet drivers side.


I think that I can help you. It sounds like your drain-tube is plugged up. Get in the passenger side, and pull the carpet back from under the glove box. Look for a black rubber pipe that goes from a black box, and pokes thru the firewall, on the passenger side. Remove the hose from the box, and have a container ready to catch water. If water comes out of the black box, your drain hose is plugged up. Clean out the clog, and you will be golden.

Pontiac Montana 2004 Leak


I turned on the fan inside and closed everything up, went outside and poured soapy water around everywhere. I found bubbles at the mirrors and and the top of the windshield. Also a "Tech" told me that under the door rubber at the driver and passenger sides there is a piece of tape that is supposed to cover two assembly holes on either side but doesn't, so I caulked it and solved the leak that comes out the map lights. I also found that there was a crack in the sealer along the firewall to passenger inside fender allowing water to collect int the wiring channel causing the dreaded "lock" problem, which I had fixed by the dealer but they didn't fix the leak. The dealers and "Jet-set Execs"are the reason GM is hurting as their vans are OK. The fix was spraying RV Roof\Gutter sealant from the front after removing the wiper cover and spraying waaay in. Now I need to fix the one on the front that comes in above the passengers left foot and makes a spiders haven behind the centre cowl. Jim
