I had the same problem and it was coming from my windshield as well. I had the windshield installed and it wasn't done correctly, I didnt find this out until the rainy season. If you've determined it's coming from the windshield, caulk under the seal. This fixed my problem.

If there are not holes in the floor and the door seals are good, chances are you've got a leak around the seal of your windshield. Lay your seat back and have a friend spray water on your windshield while you look under the dash. Pay close attention to the corners of the kick panels. You'll have to lay in the seat upside down (feet at headrest and head in floorboard). I know this sounds awkward but I've done it and it works best. In order to splash up enough water to go through a hole in the firewall, you would have to be practically submerged in water. Good luck and let me know how it goes.

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.

Could my heater core be causing my passenger floorboard to get wet


Yes, or a hole in the bodywork under the mats. Does it do it all the time or only when you drive on wet roads?

The heater core is behind the dashboard and often central or on the passenger side.

Water leak on drivers side in my 1999 Honda Civic DX Coupe


Go to the passenger side or driver side there you need to find the A/C drain tube make sure that it is draining outside and not in the compartment area.This drain hose tends to pop out, so when you have the A.C on you notice there is water draining out but in your case its going in thhe car.

It sounds like your heater core is done. That is in a tight spot in behind the glove box. Get a new one for around $60.00.

How is the floormat on the drivers side attached to the floor rug? There seems to be two metal rings, one in the floor rug and one in the flloor mat. They are not snaps, just rings How is the mat attached...


There is a small plastic hook attached to the floor that goes through the metal ring on the floormat to keep it in place. the hook's open side should face the back of the car, so just pull the mat towards the drivers seat and it should come loose. No clips or anything, just that one hook and ring.

Sounds like you have a possible hole in your floor, get your vehicle up on a hoist and check for rust and symptoms of holes or cracks. Sounds like your floor is giving out.

I have water pooling under the floor mat on the drivers side. I have dried it and it keeps getting wet.


It may be of 2 things. One thing you can look at is the evaporator part of your AC under the dash. It may have accumulated water in its coil that the excess flown towards the floor. Another are possible holes on the car's body. There could be a hole in the car's firewall that water from the drain may have flowed to the inside.

Wet floor


If this has happened since you started using the A/C it is probably the drain tube for the A/C. They get plugged and usually someone has to go under the car with a coathanger and open the tube up.

Water on Drivers side Saturn SC2


Is it antifreeeze from heater core or heater core hose leak?  Is the leak pure water, or maybe something else?
Put it in the garage again overnight with an old white towel in the drivers foot well, best if you can find a way to stretch it from drivers seat forwar to firewall and keep it off of floor mat.  Check it before you go to bed,  then in the morning if no leak found yet.  see if the color/location of the spot helps you identify the source.  I think the heater core is under the dash center.  Anti freeze is green/yellow or orange.
good luck
