Do you have a sunroof? If you do, this may be the problem. The seal for the sunroof may be damaged letting water past the drain channels. A cheap trick is to get your water hose and hold it over the sunroof and if you don't see anything, try other areas such as the back glass "the seal could be bad or pulled away from the matting surface. You have drain channels all over the car, but the seals are the issue I would look for. The trunk could be leaking and letting water run through to the back seats. None of this seems possible but a leak can be very hard to trace down. Good Luck.r

    Hey Mike, Any chance you could post instructions on how you removed the back seats. I am having the same problem but am not sure how to take them out to try and fix it. They are secured in on the front somehow. Am able to lift up the back

If the car has a sunroof, your sunroof drains are backed up and leaking into rear (from pillars) need to be blown out w/compressed air. If not, might be leaking through trunk seal and/or lower glass rear window seal.

The driver side seat belt getting wet


You quite obviously have a water leak, the interior near the leak must have all the trim panels removed and then it is leak tested with a rain simulator. Water leaks like this are extremely hard to find since this has likely leaked since it was new 11 years ago and the previous owner ignored it. You will need the expertise of the dealer on this, it will be expensive labor wise.

my old favourite trick in cold wet UK was to drill a hole in the floor so what gets in can run out ,most likely cause is a door seal somehow but even if you find the leak still drill the hole

If your concerned that there may be another place of water entry. Find a shop that has a tool known as the "SMOKER" this is a device that produces white smoke with mineral oil or scentless baby oil. I suggest to fill the trunk up with smoke and see where the smoke escapes to.

How do I get back seat out?


I removed the back seat bottom in my 2001 Buick Century this afternoon. I did so by pushing the bacl on the seat bottom and then pushing up at the same time. It then came loose. With it out I looked at the two spots where it was held down. In hindsight, may have come loose if I had just pulled up on the front of it, but not sure of that. By the way, I had to remove all my seats in order to remove my carpet which had gotten incredibly soaked with water from recent rains. I believe the water came in thru the passenger compartment air filter which is on the r/s in front of the windshield. There is a weahterstrip along the base of the windshield that I believe came loose. I'll know for sure in a few days. In the meantime I am riding with only a drivers seat in the car.

Wet rear floor


I had a similar issue and found that the two rear drain holes for the sun roof came off and any water was running down into the trunk and also the rear floor was always wet. I pulled the rear of the roof panel down to expose the rubber tubes, re-seated them with glue so they would not come off again.
