Mcdevito75 here, It could be a number of ways water is getting in, first is there any water in the front carpet that can be flowing to the back, if the fron is also wet you have to check the A/C evaporator drain, under the dask by the glove box a rubber hose connected the the evaporator leading oustside the truck, make sure this rubber hose is attached, if only water in the rear, check the cargo bed of your truck for leakes, also inspect the rubber around the door frame of your truck.

It could still be a leaking windshield and running under the carpet.
Or it could be a door gasket or one of the roof drains is plugged up.
You may need a body shop to check it out.

Why is th carpet wet behind the driver seat in my '02 thunderbird


This can be from one of couple sources. One would be a broken or missing rubber seal in the firewall. Water can and will enter the passenger compartment if the seal is not good or missing. The firewall is the metal between the engine compartment and passenger compartment. There are many penetrations in the firewall for throttle linkage, steering column, electrical harness, etc. All of these penetrations have seals to prevent water from entering. Check to make sure all penetrations have seals. Inspect from under hood and from under the car, too.

Another source is damage to the floor pan. If you went over a rock or jagged object without having enough clearance, it may have punctured or even sliced through the floor - under the carpeting and sound deadening material under it. If you live in a cold area, and the roads are treated with salt or chemicals to melt ice, it may have caused rusting holes to appear in the floor pan. Water spraying up from tires would enter through the puncture or slice and the carpet would wick the water in. It would take a long time to dry and give a musty smell after just a short time. You should inspect the floor pan from underneath the car. Look for punctures, slices and rust / rot. Clean and seal any openings found in the floor pan and firewall.

Fixed windows and glass in the car body are also sources for leaks. The is especially true if glass has recently been replaced. Many times, the back window leaks into the trunk or metal under the rear seat - and flows to the carpeted floor. Look in the trunk at the bottom of the rear window. Side windows can leak, too - so don't forget to look behind trim interior panels on the sides of the back seat. Your leak could be coming from the windshield, too - this will be harder to locate through the dashboard - but you may find water dripping from wires, etc. Look for evidence of water / rust. Clean and reseal body / glass joints when found.

Good luck!

Leaking roof under passenger seat


Have you cleaned out the drain tubes? There is a 'rain rail' underneath the rear lip, which diverts water off the top and down to tubes on each side. The tubes get clogged up with leaves and whatnot. You can use a coathanger to CAREFULLY clear the debris. Check out www.miata.net for more Miata information than you could imagine.

Happy Motoring!

Water under driver side floor


It may be due to the air conditioning hose being blocked. Therefore the water must be backing up into the vehicle, under the carpets and into the back seats instead of flowing out

Cooling sysem leak


Leak found at heater.  Most of coolant added in attempts to locate leak was retained on the floor of the passenger compartment --- hence the disappearing coolant phenomenom. About 5 gallons of water were obtained with wet vac of region under floor carpet. Thanx to those who considered the problem.
