    Thanks so much. How would I pull the panel that covers the wiper assembly? I have a feeling that is where the problem is.

Get some clear silicone sealant in a squeeze tube at wal-mart. gently pry the rubber around the windshield away from the body and put a long bead of the silicone down into in the groove. start on top in the middle and go completely around. do not use a screwdriver or other metal tool to pry the rubber or you will scratch the paint. if you see detritus in the groove, brush it out with an old toothbrush and a hand vacuum before you put the sealant in. do not go overboard with the sealant, trim the excess off after it sets up.

if that does not work you are going to have to pull the panel which covers the wiper assembly and find and fix the leak in that well.

dealing with a problem like this is a clue as to why you should never, ever get a car with a sun or moon roof. they only leak always and forever.

Equinox driver and passenger side floor boards flood everytime it rains. i don't have a sunroof. it used to only drip when it rained but recently my floor board have been filling up with puddles


The grille at the base of the windshield collects water and directs it down through ducts in the door pillars for discharge underneath. The ducts can become clogged with debris, causing water to back up and leak onto the floor. The ducts have to be cleaned, often by using a tool improvised from a wire coat hanger, to break up the debris - something you owner's manual doesn't mention.

Why does drivers side floor stay wet


You don't way what type of vehicle you are driving. I will assume it has a sun or moon roof. Most of these have drain lines that run down inside the driver's side door pillar and exit through the floor pan onto the ground. Over time, these drain hoses dry out and shrink, often retracting into the drivers side kick panel. Then, all the rain water that drains from the sunroof will leak out onto the drivers side floor. If that is the case, you will need to remove the drivers side kick panel and repair or replace the drain line and reroute it through the exit hole in the floor pan.

Water leak driver floor board


A water leak under the dash could be the heater leaking near the glove box, or a windshield leak, or sometimes the drain tube for that area has gotten plugged up and needs to be cleared out. Most times a little blast of air pressure will do it.
Hope this helps.

Sounds like the door gasket or trunk gasket is not sealing.
You may have to take it to a body shop to find the problem.

Water leak rear floor driver's side as well as floor back of passenger. Drain lines from sun roof are clear. No rear end accidents. Any ideas? So far dealer cannot find a problem. 2007 Camry Hybrid


Roof drains may seem clear,but are the drain hoses,actually on the roof window frame.
Remove the head liner to be sure

Why can't the dealer use a dye type test or smoke tester. The smoke doesn't just have to be used for EVAP, that it was designed for. And you wonder why I do all my own work?

Water accumulates only on the front and rear driver side floor boards and "only" after it rains. I was told it might be a plugged drain. How can you tell if its a plugged rain drain and not a poorly sealed...


take a star screw driver and punch a pair of holes in your floor on drivers side make sure once you go through push the screw driver towards the front of the car and creat angled pockets
these will be your new drains being so small they will bnot tako on water or they will take on a min of water and they will drain the floors


it''s the easiest way to fix the problem go right through the carpet it's just thet easy use a good pointy screw driver or a center punch but dont make the hole larger then 1/4 inch
a mechanic will carge you 250 to fix original drains and will likely do the same as i said a couple of wacks near the lower center on the floor boards
so get in place feet on floor slide them back against the seat with it all the way back now place pointy object between feet and wach it with a hammer
once through push pointy objest forward to create new drain

Floor board wet drivers side. No drain tube for ac condensor. Not losing radiator water. Ac condensor not draing to outside. No tube on firewall. 4.2 dohc model


all of dodge models have a drain tube you'll find it over the rack n pinion on the right side passenger but you have to see when does the water comes in the floor board, when you use the AC or when it rains if it's the AC then it's you drain if it's when it rains then you have to check for leaks on your windshield or fire wall

Everytime it rains really hard rain gets in the car. There is a 2 or 3 inches in the passenger side floor board.


I have the same problem with my 91' 318. Water is coming in from the outside air intake at the base of the front windshield, under the black vent covers. If the basin fills up, water enters the vent system throught the outside air intake. Solution: there is a drain line at the fire wall, easily accessible between the firewall and engine block. It drains water from the basin. It becomes clogged with dirt, and prevents water from draining. However, after further inspection of mine I noticed that during periods of HEAVY rain, even a clean drain line is inadequate to drain that volume of water and the same happens. See attached link. Good Luck
