Question about 1980 Chrysler Cordoba

3 Answers

I have a 1980 Dodge aspen, similar to a cordoba, and every time it rains My carpet gets wet. I have located the source to the air vent under the drivers side dash it is full of water. The cowl drains in the engine compartment are clear and the windshield was replaced a few years ago. I am stumped as to where the water is getting in any help? it only the drivers side and when it rains I can see the water running out of the vent.

While the wipers were replaced it is possible that there was the vent setting being offset and so is not closing firmly resulting in the spilled water flow into the vent to the drivers side.
It will be good to take a second look at this section and see the probability of the vent not reacting to the shutter levers inside to close.
Reset the section, checking if there is any gaps in the wiper motor fitting assembly or any ports unplugged.

I'm not familiar with the construction of the Cordoba.
However, If it was leaking before you replaced the windshield, you'll probably have to disassemble the dash or whole dash area to find the actual leak source.
If it wasn't leaking before you replaced the glass, then I'd assume it's a small spot that didn't get sealed properly or has developed a small leak in or around the new seal.
Take the trim off/ apart and test small areas with a hose or cups of water to possibly find the spot/area that's leaking.

Water is running under my dash onto floorboard in my 2007 dodge caliber after it rains. Where is the water comming from


You need to find the conduits for rain - one of them has a leak in it probably from corrosion. Try to locate just where the water is getting in and see if you can use a sealer to stop the water from getting in.

I would remove the glove box and anything else in the way and look for the source when hosing down the car.

2005 dodge caravan leaking on the driver side and passenger side floor. the rain water is dropping from corner of the roof.


The rear ac evaporator box is not draining very well,and it is blowing the condensation up threw the vents,most likely.The drain should be under the rear passengers side wheel well.

My floor boards in my Cavalier are Soaked ..


If you've been using your air conditioner during this time, and it hasn't rained at all, then the small drain at the bottom of the a/c evaporator core may be plugged. When you use the a/c to cool the car the evaporator coil [located next to the heater core in the ductwork under the dash] is very cold and moisture from the hot humid air condenses on it as a result. This condensation dribbles down the core and accumulates in the plastic housing under it where it should then drain out a small hole and drip onto the ground. If the small drain gets plugged, which happens quite often, then the water fills up the housing until it overflows and then runs out and soaks the carpet on the front passenger side. The drain is located on the engine side of the firewall, passenger side, down low where the firewall begins to curve under. Usually a puff of air will clear the clog and the drain will work fine again. If the carpet is really wet it would be a good idea to remove it and get everything dry again as it tends to get pretty smelly if left wet. One last note: usually a leaky a/c unit will only make the passenger side carpet wet unless it's been leaking for a long time while a leaky windshield seal can make both sides wet depending on where it is leaking. Good luck, hope this helps you out!

I have a 2003 Volvo S60 that ends up with a wet carpet in front of the passenger seat whenever it rains (Seattle). Also, when I am driving and turning left or right at corners, I can hear water sloshing...


The drain for your A/C may be clogged causing the water to accumulate. You should be able to locate the drain from under the vehicle on the pasenger side, perhaps there is an accumulation of debri such as leaves for example. Also, sunroof drain may also be blocked. I can say I have seen this problem before, and its a good place to start. Good luck

Check for a leaking windshield seal. Best way is to pull back carpet and drive thru a car wash, look for leaks near kick panels. also make sure a/c drain is clear, tube located on pass side under heater box

2005 Landcruiser 100 Water getting in to rear cabin somehow?


Which carpet is wet? Front or rear? Have you had the windshield replaced? I had a similar problem after the windshield was replaced. They did not use enough sealant at the bottom of the glass and when it rained the water from the cowl area would come under the glass and get the carpet wet.
