Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse
(2000 Eclipse water in driver floorboard after rain) Standing with the driver door open pour a pitcher of water over the sunroof enough that spills over onto the roof and then rolls down the windsheild...all down the side of the windshield - not toward the fresh air intakes. Water may drip from underneath the fuse housing cover. If so, pull that off continue to pour water. It will probably be coming out of the plastic (interior) cover of the cieling post dripping. The black plastic band that rounds over the roof from the top of the back window to the base of the windsheild actually shifts from back to front about 2 inches total - the passenger side doesn't move at all. Some of the clips may be broke or something.
Duct taping up the side of the windshield and making sure to cover the small hole at the top were that strip overlaps the windshield strip prevented water from coming into the floardboard. Now its either find more clips to hold it better or some adhesive/silicone to lock it into place and test again. - cnathanw@nospam@ yahoo.com

What it is is your A/c drain valve if you press the close vent button it should stop, but to fix it, it needs some sort of 90 degree rubber hose...because the problem is once you drive the air pushes the water back into the car, thus the 90 degree hose of some kind so the air cannot push in horizontally and allows the water to drip on to the ground...I hope that made sense, that or it might be your heater core...but more than likely its what I said...be creative I used the rubber housing of the spark plug wire...
