Convertible leaks I have a 1998 celica convertible that collects water in the passenger side panel, then leaks onto the floor board and rear seat. the worse the rain the more water she takes on. Any ideas?

    My friend has a 97 Celica convertible with the same problem. My 99 has a leak where the roof meets the windshield on the drivers side,even after turning the tightener screws.I have found a tear in the rubber gasket built in to the roof that I believe is letting the water drip on my thigh.Only if it raining hard which it did alot this summer.

    I would check the rubber gasket built in to the roof,it might have a tear that is allowing water to run in the car by the window.

Look for a plugged drain at both rear side panels. Water from the top can enter the car, but it is then discharged out thru drains. If the drains are clogged, you will have this problem. Same for any other Toyota convertible.

When it rains water is collecting in the rear panel , its not draining on the passenger side. now it drains inside the car on the floor boards. suggestions?

Sounds like you have clogged weap holes, each panel has small drain holes in it and are easily clogged. Located the holes and use a piece of wire or somthing along those lines to clean the holes.

There is a water leak somewhere in my 98 toyota camry that leaks into my passenger side floor. There is no sun roof and no visible leaks from the windows or doors. Any thoughts? A/C leak maybe? water...

I am the original owner of camry xle 1998 with wet floors. In 2000 I had drivers side door seal leaking at welt. Removed old door seal and new weather strip on drivers side installed. The door panel was never wet, but wet at bottom of door where there are drain holes...slowly leaking under carpet.
In 2001 later water again. Coming from overflowing A/C evaporator-drain plugged/ tank full of debris. Removed evaporator, cleaned + drain cleaned.
In 2003, driver door seal against window rotted. Removed door panel and found leak at window belt molding at the mirror joint inside + out. Lots of mold under carpet needed to replace! Made a fuss at dealers for reacurring problem and they replaced the carpet for free.
