Question about 2000 Mazda 626

1 Answer

My poor car has been having a few symptoms lately. For some reason, my trunk is soaking wet, and also the passenger side floors (both front and back) though not as wet as the trunk. My AC has not been working for a couple of years now, and I believe the wetness is water rather than coolant. Also, for some reason, my trunk is difficult to shut, but there's nothing in the way, so I'm not sure if the seal is bad and is leaking rain water in? If this is the case, would water from the trunk spread all the way up to the front of the car? And why only on the passenger side? Makes me think something is wrong on the inside....

Easiest way to figure it out, toss a friend in the trunk with a flashlight and grab a hose.
Pour all around the seal with the trunk closed, wouldn't surprise me if it's worn or falling off considering you're having trouble closing the trunk as well.
Do the same for all the doors, sunroof if you have and windshield .
Those seals normally aren't hard to replace and an easy way to make sure the new ones don't leak is to grease them before winters, some white grease works well, not the prettiest thing but it keeps the rubber from freezing and cracking.

My 2000 ford crown Victoria. Have water on the rear passenger side floor. What could be the problem


Hey Grady..
There are few things that could cause the water intrusion... Is the carpet in the front floorboard wet?.. ..Has it rained recently? This will rule out window seals leaking? Have you opened the trunk and checked to see if water is in the trunk? OK..IF it has not rained, no water in the trunk, AND the front floorboards are wet, then the heater core is leaking...

I have a 2001 DEVILLE. I am getting two inches of water on the floor in from of the back seat on the passenger side of the vehicle. Nothing is visably wet anywhere but on the floor.


Is it wet in the front passenger also? I had this problem a few months ago and 1 of the gurus from here told me to check the ac drainage hose under the vehicle...it was clogged. Other than getting soaked once i unclogged it, it was pretty easy. 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.

Wet rear floor


Have you by any chance jacked up the passenger side, or got vehicle on a hoist to make sure there isn't any plugs on the underside that may have fell out? They could be round or oval metal or rubber plugs, probably in that area.

Wet rear floor


I had a similar issue and found that the two rear drain holes for the sun roof came off and any water was running down into the trunk and also the rear floor was always wet. I pulled the rear of the roof panel down to expose the rubber tubes, re-seated them with glue so they would not come off again.

There is a water leak somewhere in my 98 toyota camry that leaks into my passenger side floor. There is no sun roof and no visible leaks from the windows or doors. Any thoughts? A/C leak maybe? water...


I am the original owner of camry xle 1998 with wet floors. In 2000 I had drivers side door seal leaking at welt. Removed old door seal and new weather strip on drivers side installed. The door panel was never wet, but wet at bottom of door where there are drain holes...slowly leaking under carpet.
In 2001 later water again. Coming from overflowing A/C evaporator-drain plugged/ tank full of debris. Removed evaporator, cleaned + drain cleaned.
In 2003, driver door seal against window rotted. Removed door panel and found leak at window belt molding at the mirror joint inside + out. Lots of mold under carpet needed to replace! Made a fuss at dealers for reacurring problem and they replaced the carpet for free.
