Assuming you do not have a sunroof, then the "right" way will to pull the windshield because you probably have rust forming around the window

however, if you do not care how it looks, get yourself some good RTV from the auto parts store and run a think bead all around the outside of the windshield

If you have a sunroof then you probably have a clogged vent drain

I have a 1998 Chevy Suburban.whenever it rains the driver side floorboard becomes wet. door seals are good. where could the leak be coming from?


Possibly from the windshield. Is there any rust around the windshield area? Check for debris in water drain outlets under the wiper arm cowling.

Water is leaking in onto the floor on the drivers side. what is it from?


Hi, there are several possibilities. There may be water leaking through the windshield seal and dripping down. You can try applying making tape around the edges of the windshield to see if it stops the leak. If a specific spot can be identified, some silicone RTV sealant can be squeezed in to reseal it. There may be a leak in the body seam at the bottom of the cowl (the well outside the car where the wipers sit under the bottom of the windshield. The cowl well is supposed to collect water draining from the windshield. The cowl is equipped with drain holes. There may be a seam where sheetmetal comes together in the cowl area that is not sealed good. You can try pouring water into the vents at the rear of the hood so the water goes into the cowl, and see if the water appears to enter the vehicle under the dash. Some disassembly is required to reseal the cowl sheetmetal seams.

My daughter just bought a 2000 pontiac grand am and it gets water in the back drivers side when it rains hard. Any suggestions as to what the problem is?


Is the car equipped with a sunroof. If so, I suspect sunroof drain is plugged up (leaves etc..) You need to blow compressed air through drains to unplug (if so equipped) You can also take it to a self serve car wash and spray hi pressured soapy water at suspect area, soap will leave a trail.

97 Pontiac Grand Prix Leaks 2" Water on Front Passenger Floor in a Heavy Rain (But not if the car is parked on a down slope.


Check the bottom of the door for clogged drain holes. Could also be a weatherstrip seal leak around the door opening. Worst case there could be a leak around the windshield gasket.

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.

Whenever it rains my floor on the passenger side of the car has water on it. It seems to be coming from the dash. And this only happens when it rains.


We see this often. There is a rubber bulb type molding (similar to a door or trunk seal) that is approximately 12" attached just above the fresh air intake that's in the firewall on the passenger side. Quite often this rubber part comes off and water is no longer diverted and instead pours directly through your cabin filter (if you have one) and into the right floorboard. To correct it, remove the right windshield wiper and right side of the lower windshield reveal molding (plastic cowling). Apply weatherstrip adhesive into the "U" shaped molding and re-apply into place directly above the cabin filter and fresh air intake. Replace the cowling and wiper. Good luck

In the past I have had major water leaks in my 2005 grand prix. I never knew wehre the water came from. Now, I can hear water under my car shifting whenever I turn a corner. Where is it coming from??


Do you have a sun roof? I imagine you do.

Under the roof cover there is a tube on each side of the car that drains the sunroof area to the ground. Either a tube has been disconnected or come loose. This will cause severe mold and mildew problems if not fixed soon.

What is causing water to collect in my floorboard?


I think i may be able to help. First check to see if the water has a sweet smell. If so its antifreeze and your heater core "located under the dashboard on pasenger side" has failed. The antifreeze will leak out and drain to various plsces on floor. If the water is only water then chances are that one of your hood gaskets that suround the hood hinge support has failed. hope this helpes and good luck.

Pontiac grand am leaks water into front floorboard when it rains


I had the same problem on my 97 G AM for about a year now, Water getting on the driver side carpet all the way to the back,it just got worst over time, But I found the problem, you have to look behind the wiper motor where the fire wall meets the bodi ,there is a hire line crack rigth behind the wiper motor where the water coming from the wiper cowling drains from ther is some kind of coulking that is painted the same color as the car, you must clean the area with a screwdriver and soap, and use clear silicon with a coulking gun, you must remove the 2 top wiper motor screws do not remove the botom one not need to and remove the 2 wire plugs and pull the motor back and rotaded upwards know youre clear to do the job; good luck it worked for me.
