Question about Dodge Ram
I had a water specialist tried to find the water entry. He sealed a small hole in the window shield. But again it is leaking I took it to safelite glass to get the windshield check by them. They ran foam around the wind shield and used a air hose to the wind shield. they said it wasn't the window. I still have water coming in somewhere. I need help. Rick
Look at your air conditioner vent coming of the evaporator. Open hood and should be a 1/4 inch hose right by firewall on drivers side. They rarely leak, but sometimes fall off and normally discharge to ground. Be careful and depending where you live you can turn ac on and just wait to make sure its draining on the ground. Turn truck off and look for loose hose.Please be careful as there's lots of places you can cut yourself. I don't think it's the door gasket if you had a pro do it.

SOURCE: Interior Carpet Getting Wet
It sounds like a plugged drain line from the air conditioner. Most cars now run in the a/c mode whenever u turn on the climate control (even when heat is on). The passenger side front is where it would be wet, and the carpet and carpet pad act like a sponge and will soak up the water. Let me know how u make out.

SOURCE: water leaks out front
I had exactly the same problem with my Kenmore Ultrawash. I thought the leaking might be coming from the seals around the door, but found that it was leaking from the top as described. I removed the air vent cover on the inside of the door and found that it and the vent area had a great deal of what appeared to be dissolved paper. At first I thought perhaps this was somehow remenents of some kind of air filter, but after reading the post here, came to conclude this was foreign matter. I believe what happended is we at some time washed jars or something with lables on it and this stuff accummulated inside the air vent area. I think in a normal case, when the washer is running, water is mostly stopped from going into the air vent area by the hatched cover, but inevitably some water would get thru. This would be ok normally, because the water would just hit the vent area and probably just fall back into the washer. With all the debris stuck in the vent area and on the cover, I suspect the water was not able to exit the vent area or was hitting the debris and causing the water to jet out the opening to the front - hence the water coming out the vent and pouring down the front. Once I cleaned out the vent area and the cover from the debris, I replaced the cover and ran the washer with no water leaking anymore.
I'm so glad you posted your finding - it gave something to look into, and turned out to be the same source of the problem. You saved me a service call.

windshield seals are usually not the problem: Here's the secret: There are 2 round rubber drains that are meant to get water away from that firewall: Yours are clogged!
The solution is simple: Open the hood, look to both the left and right of your blower fan (that's where your water was coming from, by the way), check both and I promise you, they are both blocked. Now take a long screw driver and push trough any leaves or gunk in there and then take a garden hose and spray it into both holes and voila! No more water inside Cabby!
Enjoy your dry Cabrio! Cheers!
