Question about Lexus RX 300
Hi, I am not sure what procedures the 2 shops took to elvaluate the cause for water wetting the floors, but if you open your sunroof you should see a hole at each corner. These holes are connected to drain tube, and clog, causing water to run into the vehicle. Sometimes in rare cases the drain tubes can also come loose. When the fronts are loose water runs over to the top of the windshield and then down the INNER door seal (not the seal you can see from outside the car) before finally dripping near the speaker and onto the carpet.
The fix is to run a wire thru the holes to free up any blockage and/or use a compressor to blow out the holes to remove blockage.Where safety goggles when performing this procedure.
You can also use a garden hose or a glass of water to simulate the rain,and view where the leak enters the vehicle. This is a very common cause for water entering the vehicle. I am assuming the door seals are doing their job keeping water out,and the 2 shops most likely confirmed this?
