SOURCE: Water on Drivers side Saturn SC2

Is it antifreeeze from heater core or heater core hose leak?  Is the leak pure water, or maybe something else?
Put it in the garage again overnight with an old white towel in the drivers foot well, best if you can find a way to stretch it from drivers seat forwar to firewall and keep it off of floor mat.  Check it before you go to bed,  then in the morning if no leak found yet.  see if the color/location of the spot helps you identify the source.  I think the heater core is under the dash center.  Anti freeze is green/yellow or orange.
good luck

SOURCE: my driver side windshield wiper

I just solved this problem last night with my '05 Impala, and ultimately the solution was what newton5083 stated above.  Yet, it may also be this (I found it online somewhere):
You have bent or broken the "park tab" on the windshield wiper motor bracket. The correct way to fix this is to remove the wiper arms, wiper linkage and wiper motor from the wiper motor bracket, and install a new bracket.
I just bent the tab back into place a couple times for our daughters 2005 Impala but it kept getting bent down again when they didn't take the time to make sure the wipers were not frozen to the windshield, or tried running the wipers to remove heavy snow on the windshield. So yesterday I fabricated a small piece of metal and bolted that to the bracket in the same place the tab stop was.
If someone wants to access this bracket and tab-
1. Use a ½ inch or 13mm socket & ratchet or wrench to remove nuts on wiper arms.
2. They may make a special tool to remove the arms, I used a screwdriver and hammer to tap bottom of the arm to wedge them apart from the spindle.
3. Two small button-looking clips hold the drivers side cowl cover in place under the windshield. These are two-piece clips, pry up the center, than the outer piece.
4. Unclip the washer hose from cowl cover, than pull out plastic cover.
5. There is a smaller plastic cover with on plastic button head holding that cover in place. Gently pry under that clip to remove that cover.
6. Now you can see the wiper trans and bracket. You should see a small tab on that bracket that looks pushed down and bent or possible a square small hole with some torn off metal where the tab broke off.
7. Remove small plastic cover over the wiper transmission and you can see a small spring-loaded arm underneath the wiper transmission assembly.
8. You need to find something to pry that tab back up so when the wipers are running that spring loaded little arm just snaps past the tab running clockwise. It's when you shut off the wipers that the wiper transmission assembly reverses rotation counter clockwise and the small spring loaded arm underneath hits that tab stop, than the wipers will go all the way down and shut off as they should.
Once that tab stop gets bent out of the way the little spring loaded arm has nothing to stop the wiper transmission assembly so it keeps traveling counter clockwise until some other stop shuts the wipers off straight up on the windshield.

There is a revised bracket part # which is supposed to be more durable, GM part #12368639. Here is a copy of the TSB which points out this problem:
Bulletin No.: 05-08-43-003A
Date: March 10, 2005
TECHNICAL
Subject:
Windshield Wipers Park in Up Position (Replace Windshield Wiper Motor Bracket)
Models:
2005 Chevrolet Impala, Monte Carlo
Supercede:
This bulletin is being revised to make a correction to the Parts Information. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 05-08-43-003 (Section 08-Body and Accessories).

Condition
Some customers may comment that the windshield wipers park in the out wipe (vertical) position.
Cause
This condition may be caused by a bent park tab on the windshield wiper motor bracket.

Correction
To correct this condition, replace the wiper motor bracket. It will be necessary to transfer the following parts listed below to the new bracket.
^ Wiper transmission
^ Wiper motor crank arm
^ Wiper motor
1. Remove the windshield wiper motor drive system module.
2. Remove the windshield wiper transmission from the windshield wiper motor bracket.
3. Remove the wiper motor crank arm from the windshield wiper motor.
4. Remove the windshield wiper motor from the bracket.
5. Install the windshield wiper motor to the new bracket.
6. Install the wiper motor crank arm to the windshield wiper motor.
7. Install the windshield wiper transmission to the windshield wiper motor bracket.
8. Install the windshield wiper motor drive system module.

A TSB is not a recall, if vehicle is still under warranty the dealer should be repaired for free. If not, you'll have to pay for the repairs.

SOURCE: 2005 Chrysler Pacifica-Air conditioning leak

The 05/04 Pacifica did not come with an elbow tube on the drain line for the AC drip pan. As you drive, the air flow into the tube pushes the condensate water back into the pan which is inside above the passenger floor board, the drain line is under the hood on the firewall. I spoke with the parts guy at the local Chrysler dealer, he sold me a drain tube for the 06 (~$10) and I installed it, wasn't too hard to do from the top if the engine is cold. The elbow slips on over the drain tube. Make sure to point the tube down. It only took one trip to start seeing water drip out of the tube and the floorboard started to dry up and almost three years later, the floorboard is still dry.

SOURCE: the passenger side floorboard gets wet =

is it only when the ac is on? there is a pan under the ac unit that has a hole in it to allow the condensation to empty. if that hole gets plugged it could cause the condensation to build up and back into the inside of that car. i unplugged mine and floor stayed dry

You will need to find where in the linkage the problem is. I would start taking it apart to see what is and what isn't working correctly. Autozone website has free repair manuals available online.

It sounds like your heater core is done. That is in a tight spot in behind the glove box. Get a new one for around $60.00.

2005 Dodge Durango. Amp Shortage?? suspect water leak in area of amp. Now no sound at all. No radio, navigation system, cd player, sattelite radio


many of these 04-06 durangos have a leak problem at the top of the windshield on passenger side which leads to water getting into the passenger kickpanel where the amplifier is located. I had my windshield replaced for a crack and there was rust forming behind the top passenger side of windshield...( same with the rear hatch above the passenger side of the chrome molding that covers the handle. My radio went on and off depending on when it rained. Now it doesn't work at all. I plan to check for fuses related to the amp tonight to decipher whether the fuse just blew or that the amp was fried from the water.

Grand prix front passenger floorboard gets wet


You could have a leaking windshield seal, and its running down the inside of the dash and onto the mat. Has the windshield been replaced?

Water on the front driver side floorboard


It's not the air conditioning because the problem happened after a rainfall. The air conditioning would cause a wet rug while the air is on and it is very warm and humid outside. Then I could see a plugged drain causing the issue. It may be a leak around the windshield area or sunroof if you have one.
Start your car and put your fan on high. close the windows and doors. Spray a soap and water solution around the outside of the car starting around the windshield area. Look for bubbles forming. When you find the bubbles you found your leak.

ACURA MDX Wet Floors


There are three places that water can be coming from. The least likely is from underneath, unless you've been driving through deep water (ask the kids about that if they get to use the car). ;-) The other places are from a plugged sunroof drain - just open the sunroof, and carefully pour a quart of water into the channel in the front and see if it finds its way through the drain holes at the front corners, and out the bottom of the car (it takes just seconds to make the trip). The third possibility is a gap in the gasket or sealant around the windshield (the water will run down inside the windshield pillar, and find its way to your carpet). The only option there is to have the windshield replaced (or at least removed and reinstalled - if you can find someone who'll do that). There's some chance that there's a rust hole under the gasket, too, particularly if the windshield was replaced previously by a ham-fisted tech who scratched up the paint when replacing a windshield.

Wet passenger side


I believe the problem is a leak in your heater core. The water would run down the inside of the firewall or near it thus running under the mat.

I have a 2007 Nissan Frontier XL 4X4. I recently noticed that the passenger side floorboard is wet UNDER the floor mat. Could this be the air conditioner backing up?


yes, your a/c drain is most likely clogged up causing the water to come inside the cab. see your nissan dealr. warantee issue. 3 years 36000 miles.
