At the bottom of the firewall on the right side is a drain tube or a drain hole. Yours is plugged up it seems & that is why water is getting inside the car. You will need to get this car on a hoist to run a thick wire through the drain to unclog it. A flashlight will be needed to find the hidden outlet

Where should I look for rain water leak?


Most water leaks come from around the windshield area. Has the windshield been replaces recently? If so it may not be sealed properly. Another area where water may penetrate is through the cowling area under the wiper blades/arm where fresh air enters the car. There are water drains under this cowling allowing water to drain and if they are plugged with leaves/debris, water will enter the vehicle. Is the vehicle rusted around the windshield area? If so, suspect this to be the source of water intrusion. Most glass/windshield repair companies will diagnose water intrusion problems

Wet driver side floor


I used to get water in my trunk when it rained hard. I re-caulked the rear window and it stopped. A water leak has a capillary effect meaning it will follow ridge lines and can appear in unlikely areas after it flows downward. I sometimes get water on my driver side door when I wash the car and spray sideways to rinse. I would check all your rubber seals around the windshields and doors.

Drive side soaked floor boards.


Could be a plugged drain for the windshield or cowl vents, or the door gasket.
You could try using a garden hose or take it to a body shop.

I have a 2003 Nissan Pathfinder and the driver side floorboard gets wet under the carpet when it rains. I have had the car for 5 months and it never happened until now when there is more rain. I assume...


It's possible that the seal around the windshield is leaking and the water is trickling in behind the dash area where it is very difficult to see. These leaks can be very difficult to pinpoint and often I've just had to eliminate every other possibility first before finally pulling the glass to find the exact source of the leak. It's a bit of a job but if you can't find the leak then try removing the carpet, insulating pad, and seats completely from the front, dry off the floor, then have someone sit inside with a bright flashlight looking for a leak while you run water over the doors, windows, windshield, and sunroof [if equipped] and you'll most likely find the culprit. It's also a good idea to get the carpet fully dried out so it doesn't get musty and smelly plus it will eventually cause the floor to rust if left wet. Good luck, hope you find your leak!

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.

Water leaks on to floor boards when it rains.


Does it just leak when you are driving or does it leak when parked as well? The reason I ask is if it leaks when parked, you can eliminate a floor pan leak, or a leak that gets water from the wheel slinging it up in the wheel well. These things can be a pain in the *** to find. If it is not obvious, like torn, worn or out of place weather stripping, then I usually take a pressurized hose to wet only one section at a time and narrow down the source of the leak. It could be the seal around your windshield, stripping around the door, or even water getting inside your door and somehow finding its way to floor by draining along the inside door panel. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!

If you have a wet seat then it is likely defective weather stripping around the window.

Try this. If the floor is dry, then it rains and the floor remains dry, only gets wet after a drive in the rain or on wet streets, you may have a hole somewhere.

Check for holes from missing rubber grommets or holes in the floorboard or firewall from rust. Check for any rust holes or missing rubber grommets under the car or on the firewall, anywhere water can splash up into the vehicle from driving in rain or running through puddles..

Check wet spots along the carpeting all the way up under the dash, if the wet spot is higher than the floor itself, you could be getting the water from splashing through puddles.

Any holes under the car or in the fenderwell even up on the firewall can cause this problem.

First check for any obvious signs of rust, if none are found then look for missing or defective rubber grommets.

Floor board is wet on driver side front and rear


Check the weatherstripping around the door. Also look under the dash board for signs of water leaking from the firewall. If your weatherstripping isn't damaged anywhere then make sure the liquid doesn't smell like antifreeze. If it does then you've busted the heater coil. Do not drive the car if this is the case. Your coolant will all leak into the car and it will overheat. Replacing a heater coil tend to be a huge pain in the **** and if you can pay someone else to do it by all means do. The heater coil can be bypassed by connecting the water inlet hose to the outlet hose where they go into the firewall. This is a crutch but your car will run fine until you can get the heater coil replaced. A mechanic will do the bypass for you pretty cheaply. It only takes 5 minutes.

Floor get wet when it rains on passengar side carvan


check the weather stripping on your door and the seal on the windshield also make sure the windows are 100% all the way up. Good way to find out where it's coming from is goto an automatic car wash and while it's washing your car watch for water to drip.. if your not sure if you will see it if it comes through the windshield you can always hold up some construction paper (obviouisly you can cover more ground with that than notebook paper) and see where it gets wet :-) if you dont find it there i'd check the floor boards and see if/where the carpet starts to get wet first under the dashboard
