Question about 1999 Mercedes-Benz CLK

Water leaking on passenger side floor

After a very heavy downpour (possibly unrelated), I had a severe water leak in the passenger side foot area (poured out and resulted in standing water). I took the panel under the glove box out and it was soaked. There is a box with sliding plastic latches and it was full of water also. I removed it and there is something electrical in the box. I don't know what this is. Di I have a leak from the outside or is this A/C condensation that has not drained properly? Maybe it is something else. Any ideas? Thanks.

Lots of rain water leaking into front passenger foot rest.


Are you certain it is rain water? It could be condensation from the A/C coil that fails to drain out of the drain pan, or possibly coolant from a leaking heater core. If you are certain it is rain water, depending upon the age of the vehicle, and possibly some other things, here are the possible options:

  1. Leaking door gasket.
  2. Leaking windshield seal due to rust
  3. Leaking windshield seal due to improper installation
  4. Leaking windshield seal due to acoustic (sound) over pressure (if you have extreme sound system with heavy bass)
  5. If you have a sunroof, if the drain hose comes down the passenger side door column, it could be leaking into the passenger compartment rather than drain through the floor pan.

I have a 1992 Honda Accord and whenever it rains, water leak through the speaker on the passenger side door and make a big puddle on the floor. Also the water leaks into a hole in the floor by the ECU


Not comming from the speaker! Make sure that the rubber door trim aound the door is intact and not damaged. Additionally, check the rubber seal on the outside of the window where it retracts into the door. These are the only 2 ways that water can enter through the passenger door.

Water drips onto carpet on passengers side front foot area. Can be seen dripping from plastic air ducting above foot area. how to figure out how its getting in. Have replaced windshield.


You can only have 2 issues dripping water onto the passenger floor board. First being a clogged drip line for the ac evaporator. The other is a leaking heater core. Figuring out which one is the issue is fairly easy.

If your vehicle has anti freeze in it when you turn the defrosters on it will smell sweet. If it does you have a leaking heater core. If it does not then the drip line is clogged.

To clear the drip line get under the vehicle and snake the drip line on the firewall. It usually is a 90 degree rubber or plastic piece on the passenger side about a third of the way up the firewall. A leaking heater core means it has to be replaced and not really a job for someone that is not exsperienced.

Blower motor fan works on high setting only. I think resistor is bad but i can not locate where resistor goes. blower motor under passenger side glove box,cant seem to locate resistor. Also seen water on...


The resistors are located in the firewall just above the blower motor. they have a heavier gadge wire going to it. As for the water if it is not antifreeze then you have a leak in your cowl area by the lower windshield. I ran in to this problem on several gm cars such as yours it can be deficult to find good luck

Why does water get into the passenger side floorboard of my 2004 ford taurus when it rains hard? it only gets wet during severe downpours


There is a leak from your cowl area.There is a technical service bulletin to install a plastic extension onto the cowl cover so water will not leak in side. It will also damage your blower motor if you don't get it reapred.

Water leak on fwd and back passenger side after every rain storm


pull your carpet up near the leak area and look for muddy body seams. it is possible one of the factory body seams are leaking- possibly in the cowl(under wipers) area, especially if it leaks when the car is sitting. there will be dirt/mud around the seams that are leaking. also you can check door seals by running the car on HIGH DEFROST with all doors and windows closed. spray around with a 50/50 soapy water solution. obviously bubbles will form around your leak.

Pool of water behind driver seat


more than likely to be either front or rear windscreen, water seeps under carpets to lowest part of floor, if vehicle is a hatch back check the channel at top of door opening is not blocked with leaves or debris as this can cause water to overflow and into vehicle
