    Thanks for your input but I have discovered the source of my problem is a faulty waterproof membrain in the door panel allowing water to seep in. It's probably in the rear door and the water is then seeping through the carpet to the front.

Water in rear footwell driver side


Open the both doors on the affected side , and swing open and close if you hear sloshing you may just have a blocked drain hole in the doors, if you hear nothing then check the rubber seals on doors and trunk , if seals are ok and no water in door I'd see if the rear washer line has broken , air con freeze could be an issue but would be more to the front than rear

Scion xa water gets into spare tire well during rain. a lot of it. gaskets look ok.


Best advice from i ever got from an old mariner was if the water gets in drill a hole and let it out ,then worry about it later .When i lived in the uk many years ago and the older cars then had rubber window screen seals it was common to get water leaks in the front footwells which caused rust and eventually the car to fail the inspection for corrosion in the floor so i used to drill a 3/8th hole either side of the respective floorpan by the seal so if the car was parked in the road pointing in one direction the water would tun out and when car moved and parked on the other side of the road it could run out that side ,Yes i know iam ancient and none of these things i done are relevant now and are frowned upon as you have to fit new parts but in my time i repaired things and welding up cars was everyday and stopping them from rotting afterwards was part of that.Including opening the rubber bung in the boot to let the water out and if no rubber bung drilling a hole .But then iam only a dinasaur now so ignore me

Water filling the back passenger side foot well after heavy rain...........the pollen filter was cleaned and does not seem to be the problem..........when shop vacking the well out........I noticed the...


the spacer bar holding the passanger seat in place is cracked/rusting? If so you will need to get the section cut out and a new plate fabricated to fit and welded in. Check the door seals are intact as well, the water might be coming in there down to the lowest point.

Waterleak passanger foot well after rain


lift the bonnet and remove the plastic trim below the windscreen (passenger side) this covers the pollen filter check for distortion this will be the problem. replace the pollen filter it will be damp.if the trimis not too distorted refit or buy new. The trim acts as a rain water gutter and has been fitted incorectley, have you recently had a service ?

The sunroof drainage gets blocked.

your footwells will fill with water - even under your seats right to the back seats footwells

See two 10mm holes in front sides when sunroof is open.
a) push a flexible cable down from the top - it comes out just behind the front wheels. (use electric three core cable - or TV aerial cable - a hanger is too short) - you need about a metre and a half)
b) remove the inner mudgaurd behind the front wheels (2 screws) you will see the end of the plastic drainage pipes - remove the blocked black rubber cup at the end of these - why they are there is anybody's guess)
