Chrysler Sebring Problem

I have a 97 Chrysler Sebring convertible. Lately, everytime it rains, the floorboards have been filling up with water. I suspect the rain is coming thru the doors somehow because my top doesn't leak. Any suggestions?

Under the cowl in front of the lower front windshield where the wipers are, there are 2 drain holes for water that follows the inside of the fenders. If these holes become plugged with leaves, pine needles or anything else, the water will find a way into the car somewhere else in the firewall.

Sebring convertible water intrusion


You probably have either a hole in the floorboard or the gromet that seals the e-brake cable is worn out or fallen out. Also a possible culprit is the gromets under the hood on the firewall.

2005 chrysler sebring leaking water on passenger floorboard front and back


If you don't think it is water from a rain storm, and the wetness does not feel oily, and you have been using your air conditioning, it could be water from the ac not draining onto the ground.
If it were coolant from the heater core, it should feel like it has oil in it.

What causes wet passenger side floor in 2000 chrysler 300m?


Water.
You may have a rusted floor kicking up water, or a door seal may be leaking. check for both. In my 96 convertible it comes from the rocker panel filling up with water after a rain and it spills into the rear floorboards. It could be similar, although I don't see how a rocker can fill up like that in a hardtop. Check it out anyway, and run a coat hanger through the weep holes between the rocker and the floorboard where they are welded together They form a ridge on an angle like this: \\ on the lip and forms a small tube. This tube gets clogged with stuff and has to be routed out with that coat hanger from time to time. Eventually it will rust out and the problem will go away!!

Water fills up my floorboard when it rains. I


"weep holes" are normally on the bottom edge of the door, and will sometimes get pluged up with dirt. these can easily be cleaned out with a toothpick or ice pick. i doubt that this is your problem though. I am thinking that the drian hole to your heater box may be pluged. I suspect that it is your passanger side that fills up. The drain for this is normally found on the fire wall on the passanger side. You can clean this out by running a wire up the hole or tube and try to get the gunk out- be carefull that you don't go wild doing this as you can run the wire up to far and to hard and poke a hole in your heater core. If this is not the case- take a good look at your door seal and make sure that you dont have any gaps that would allow water in.

98 sebring jxi convertible. water pools in my back floor board


Sebring Convertibles have weep holes under the body that get clogged with debris and cause the water to back up into the floor. Take a paper clip and straighten it to clean out the weep holes. The weep holes can be found just under the frame at the doors where there is a seam(about where the jack would go). Along this seam about ervery 12 or 16 inches there will be a small slot for the water to drain.

1996 Chryslser Sebring Convertible leaks on left side from rain


Water goes between the front and rear window and is supposed to go through a trough and drain out of the bottom of the car. often the drains along the bottom (4 very small slits) get clogged and water will back up into the floorboards. just drive a flat head screwdriver in these slits and it will let the water out! (watch out about 2 gallons came out of mine!)

Water on rear floorboards


Under the car are drainvalves in the rockers.
these are small slits with a rubber valve in it, located just before the rear wheel and after the front wheel.
These are stuck, You can open them up by just putting You finger or a screwdriver in there.
I had the same problem, causes water and bad smell in Your car.
This is common by these types of convertibles, and caused by dirt washed in there from rain etc.
No big deal to solve.

When it rains water in in the rear sloshing


Many cars do have drain holes that are along the rain wells, or where the rain flows down around the lip of the trunk. If you pop open the trunk, look along the lip of the trunk for what appears to be craters or indentations along this trail. You may have to run your finger along the rim to find them. Many times they fill with dirt, or other debris and get plugged. This happened to me and I had someone blow them clear with an air hose.
