TAKE AN INCENSE, LIGHT IT IN YOUR CAR, LET THE CAR FILL WITH SMOKE. LOOK FOR SMOKE LEAKING FROM AROUND DOORS, WINDSHEILD ETC. THAT WILL HELP YOU LOCATE WHERE THE LEAK AREA IS.

Check all weep holes for clogs below the windshield, it sounds like it may be coming from the fresh air intake. During the heavy rain, it will fill up with water if the weep holes are clogged.

SOURCE: water leak

Water leak test the windshield . Carpet should be removed and dried out, Replace matting if necessary, because it will NEVER dry. Look by front firewall floor for drippage. Windshield moldings must be removed if resealing is nec, and be sure to use a neoprene water resistant windshield sealer. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2003 impala leaks from under glove box

If you want to know the where the water is coming from, water is entering from the passenger side front cowl. ( the vent below the windshield that sucks the air in for your a/c and heat) there is a recall where chevy installs a plate under the cowl and diverts water out. There is your answer.

SOURCE: passenger floor wet

Sounds like your windshield is leaking. Try a little clear silicone caulk around the gasket and it may solve your problem. Be neat about it!

SOURCE: 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe-front passenger side floor is wet

Sounds like condensate from the air condition coil, not from a heater coil.

If the drain for that is stopped up, can "overflow" into passenger side of car, very common problem.

If freon is low, causing the coil to freeze over, then thaw when you are parked, very likely.

And that will be clear liquid, not color of anti-freeze.

SOURCE: Driver's side windshield wiper stopped working.

Hello, I would say that is exactly what has happened. If you can move the wipers with no resistance it's likely one of the bolts has come loose. Both wiper arms are linked to one wiper motor.

2009 Chevy HHR water in floor passenger side front and back after heavy rain car was just sitting all day not driving where did 2 inches of clear water in floor come from,


Check the cabin air intake. Chances are the weather strip that lines part of the opening has come off. The intake should be accessible beneath the trim at the base of the windshield on the passenger side.

The drain is a runoff from the outside wiper grill, the open area under neath the wiper grill is for outside air to suct in from your a/c blower. The only way to repair it is to the body shop this will take alot of $$$$$$$$. but for me I'll take a rubber glue tube, cut a piece of rubber inter tube and apply the glue patch it from the inside............where the water is coming in. This work for about 5 years now since I live in the pacific rim, rust is very but here.......good luck

My 2006 Mustang recently had water leaking beneath the dash on the passenger side. Water was about 1/2" deep. We had about 2 inches of rain during the night and I saw it running down as I drove off.


Most cars have a void underneath ( inside ) where the wiper arms come out. It catches rain water off the windshield so that it doesn't run down the firewall inside the engine compartment where there could be some electrical stuff. There will always be a drain hose to drain that area , which can become pluged up with leaves etc. over time. If you can look around under the car , and possibly in the wheel well , you might find the other end of that drain hose. A quick shot of water at the car wash , backwards up the hose , is often enough to clear the drain. Otherwise you might have to open it up and clean it out. If that area became full of water , there are lots of places where it could leak through the firewall and into the car.
Of course , if the water is actually engine coolant , then I would say your heater core has a leak.

Rain water leak


Yes Ive had this happen to my Toyota corrola and my dodge there are 2 different reasons why this is happening 1 of them it depends on if you have a sun/moon roof if so theres a vent in there so if any water or anything goes in it reroutes it too the outside of the car if its cloggeed water will spill into the car like that and just leave puddles the second thing is if you have it parked outside with trees all around theres vents up on the hood where the windsheild meets the hood they clog up so if you look along the back firewall which is under the hood all the way in the back theres a hole that gets clogged you need to clean that out and the easiest way to do that is get someone with a air compressor and blow air in that holke to push it all out it should fix all your water problems and if you have any questions let me know ill be glad to help, also please rate me.

Thanks,

Passenger side leak under dash board


Ok take off the windshield wiper arms, then remove the plastic piece under the wipers below the windshield, there is a tray under there and some drain holes, you may have to remove some more plastic pieces once you remove the one below the windshield (some models are slightly different) clear out all the tree leaves and pine needles and such from the tray there are drain holes in the enter, and on each end push a long flexable rod down carefully or compressed air really works the best this is you problem it needs to be done every few years or more often if you park under trees.
If this information is helpful please give me a fixya! Rating , Thank you, Randy
