I had a similar problem on my Focus but water was getting under the nearside passengers carpet (Mine is a right hand drive in the UK). I eventually took it to my servicing dealer who knew straight away that it is something to do with the way the windscreen is fitted. (I had previously had the screen replaced but as there was some time between that and me noticing the wet I had not made the connection). In my case the rain water was running down the windscreen behind the black plastic which is at the bottom and then apparently it was dripping through a filter (pollen filter?) into the car interior. The dealer sealed between the windscreen and the plastic with a black mastic stuff and it fixed it. Some time after when I had to have another windscreen replaced I mentioned this to the windscreen fitter who told me that it was likely that the previous fitter had not correctly re-fitted some sort of "gutter" component which is designed to direct water which gets behind the plastic, safely away to a drain area . That is, it stops it going through the filter into the car interior. Anyway whenever the dealer services the car and replaces the filter, (he has to remove the plastic cover to do that I think) he always seals the plastic cover to the windscreen with the mastic stuff so I've had no problem since. Perhaps in your case its a similar thing and the water is just finding its way over to the drivers side? I hope this is relevant and helps. Good Luck.

Getting wet


The divider is generally not sealed at all, just a lump of metal reinforcement, the coolant may have pooled at the rear. The water will evaporate from the coolant mixture but the coolant will stay a long time so it'll have to be vacuumed out, add water and vacuum some more to pull it from the carpet and padding as much as possible. You can verify whether it's coolant or just rainwater by smelling the carpet. You may be nose blind to it by now from driving the car so have someone else sniff the carpet if you don't detect any coolant smell yourself. It'll also feel more slick than straight water if it's coolant so that's another way to ID the liquid. Option three is a cat or dog, they'll likely try to lick it if it's coolant but don't let it clean the carpet for you unless you dislike the animal.

My 2006 H3 has water leaking into drivers side floor


While H3 is parked on driveway, driver floor mat is removed, and steering turned all the way right to expose splash area, pressure hose the front left steering splash area behind left tire while another person feels with their hands to determine where water is entering. If the leak is beneath, it would only enter when you go through flooded area. When it rains, the water constantly splashes behind the tires, which is an area source for water to enter the driver area while the vehicle is in motion during rain condition. If you live in snow area, they use salt to keep roads clear of snow. Salty water is highly corrosive to exposed steel. In the summer or fall season before snow begins, you steam jet pressure clean the underside, then inspect for any area where undercoating had come off. Take primer spray paint and cover these exposed areas with at least 3 coats of primer paint, or rubber sealant spray.

Has a water leak somewhere,causing the interior carpet to get wet & even have standing water, seemingly after every rain


If its cold during your rainy weather and you need heat to warm the interior of your car. You might want to have your cooling system pressure checked. The heater core might have developed some corrosion which will eventually lead to leaks. If you have radiator coolant in your cooling system, touch the wet carpet then rub your fingers together. There should be a film left on your fingers. Hope this helps.

Everytime it rains hard my carpet is wet by the door on the driver side and also driver side rear door


There is a great possibilty that there is a leak on the Left Side of the Windshield. It is most likely in the area of the upper left side.
The reason for this conclusion is:
The rain water is coming in the Left Upper Side; and either coming down the "A" Pillar, or traveling underneath the trim on the inside roof and coming down the "B" Pillar.
The only other explanantion is a torn, worn, cracked or dislocated Weather Seal on one or both of the doors, allowing rain water to come in. Inspect very carefully these Weather Seals, especially on the top front portion of the rear door.
To help you locate these after a hard rain:
Take the trim panels off the "A: and "B" Pillars and the Roof Line above both Doors. Check for wetness underneath the trim. Or take these trim panels off, and place folded paper towels under the trim panels; reattach the trim panels and wait until it rains. Afterwhich, take these trim panel off and check the paper towels for wetness.
The Windshield Seal is easily inspected for cracks and tears.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

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.

Interior Carpet Getting Wet


It sounds like a plugged drain line from the air conditioner. Most cars now run in the a/c mode whenever u turn on the climate control (even when heat is on). The passenger side front is where it would be wet, and the carpet and carpet pad act like a sponge and will soak up the water. Let me know how u make out.
