I have a stron mildew smell in my car and discovered water on the passenger seat under the seat and on the back floor. I had found this before and thought something must have spilled. Now after driving on a dry day outside it has appeared again.

    I have the same problem. The other morning on the way to work my radio system went haywire and I smelled a strong odor of smoke. Was afraid the car was going to catch on fire. Had it towed to the dealer. They are currently working on it...said water was getting in some how and there is an amplifier under the passenger seat and that's what was causing the problem. Sure hope they fix it correctly...it was scary!

    take the cover off of the door behind the outside mirror. if there is a hole where the cable goes through.. seal it was some type of elastic caulk such as silicone. water comes in around this when it rains but generally just runs down the door post and onto the carpet

Why is th carpet wet behind the driver seat in my '02 thunderbird


This can be from one of couple sources. One would be a broken or missing rubber seal in the firewall. Water can and will enter the passenger compartment if the seal is not good or missing. The firewall is the metal between the engine compartment and passenger compartment. There are many penetrations in the firewall for throttle linkage, steering column, electrical harness, etc. All of these penetrations have seals to prevent water from entering. Check to make sure all penetrations have seals. Inspect from under hood and from under the car, too.

Another source is damage to the floor pan. If you went over a rock or jagged object without having enough clearance, it may have punctured or even sliced through the floor - under the carpeting and sound deadening material under it. If you live in a cold area, and the roads are treated with salt or chemicals to melt ice, it may have caused rusting holes to appear in the floor pan. Water spraying up from tires would enter through the puncture or slice and the carpet would wick the water in. It would take a long time to dry and give a musty smell after just a short time. You should inspect the floor pan from underneath the car. Look for punctures, slices and rust / rot. Clean and seal any openings found in the floor pan and firewall.

Fixed windows and glass in the car body are also sources for leaks. The is especially true if glass has recently been replaced. Many times, the back window leaks into the trunk or metal under the rear seat - and flows to the carpeted floor. Look in the trunk at the bottom of the rear window. Side windows can leak, too - so don't forget to look behind trim interior panels on the sides of the back seat. Your leak could be coming from the windshield, too - this will be harder to locate through the dashboard - but you may find water dripping from wires, etc. Look for evidence of water / rust. Clean and reseal body / glass joints when found.

Good luck!

In my 2000 chevy Impala has a water leaks under dashboard onto passenger floor, only when it rains?


I had the same problem with a 1994 Taurus. Within the front fender was 10 years of pine needles and leaves blocking the drain backing the water up in and over the fire wall and into the front passenger seat floor.
I took a LONG pair of needle nose pliers threw the passenger side door, and was able to remove enough debree. After pulling out out about 5 fist full's of yuck, 1 gallon a water that was stuck some where poured out flushing out the drain. I did the same on the drivers side. After that I had no problems with floods. I hope this helps. If not check your back door weather stripping if you have one. I have heard water leaking behind the passengers seatbelt and onto the floor from under the seat. Got to love Florida's rain season(s)

Drain plug for the A/C on my 2000 Hyundai Accent


Its a hose at the front of where the passengers feet area under the hood. Usually the problem is water holds and leaks on the floor. A repair shop may have a spray that they can coat the evaporator and kill the smell.

Wet carpet under front Passenger seat


You have drain blockage in the condesor case itself. There is a small tube that will drain the condensor case, the big black plastic case that contains most of your a/c system inside the car. This case collects moisture and that must drain normally from the case drain to the outside of your car onto the ground.. If this drain is plugged, you will have leakage on to the floor. If the moisture is allowed to remain in the carpet, mildew will set in and then you will have to replace the carpet.
