Question about Nissan Pathfinder

1 Answer

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 there is a window that is leaking but when we ran a hose to all the windows we couldnt track the leak. any ideas?

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!

Has it been raining? If so, you either have a hole in the floorboard or possibly a leaking door seal. If it hasn't been raining then either your heater core is leaking (the wet will smell sweet, like antifreeze) or your AC condensor pan is leaking (the wet will be a clear liquid)

Rear floorboard behind driver set wet after rain


do you have a sun roof, if so start there, because there are two hoses at the back corners of the roof pan that allow water to drain, if they leak, they will soak the rear floorboards, and if not that check the door jam seals.(note that if the plugs on the floor are missing that will be verry hard not to have wet carpet)........let me know?
