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

1999 volvo s70 problems What must I do to get the rain water drainage system working properly ?


Do you have a sunroof? Cars have drainage holes up there that often drain into the door jamb on the front doors and sometimes down the rear pillars and behind the trunk/boot lining and exit the car near the wheel wells. Often, the connection at the top to the pipe comes off at the top corner of the windscreen.

Others have the same problem. Sunroof drain mentioned and how to fix.

Pool of water in footwell behind drivers seat.


Is the water only in footwell behind driver seat? If yes, then have you checked the weather stripping around rear door (assuming that it is 4 doors)? My brother had the same problem, and behold it was the stripping around the door. If you find that is the cause, standard household weather stripping added to door frame will work well.

If you remove the carpet, you will find rubber plugs there that plug the drain holes in the floor. May be that one of them has dropped. And then the water flows every where.

The sunroof drainage gets blocked.

your footwells will fill with water - even under your seats right to the back seats footwells

See two 10mm holes in front sides when sunroof is open.
a) push a flexible cable down from the top - it comes out just behind the front wheels. (use electric three core cable - or TV aerial cable - a hanger is too short) - you need about a metre and a half)
b) remove the inner mudgaurd behind the front wheels (2 screws) you will see the end of the plastic drainage pipes - remove the blocked black rubber cup at the end of these - why they are there is anybody's guess)
