You're probably leaking from the heater core.

I think my sunroof leaks. The driver side floor is soaked. The headlights ding when you turn them on. Also bells ding when you drive it. Could I have an issue with the comfort control module?


Make sure the sunroof water drains are clear, they are at the corners of the open sunroof in the body structure, the roof is not designed water tight, it depends on the water drains to keep from leaking

Floor on drivers side just in front of my seat gets soaked after a rain


Hi Ruth
Probably running down from bad seal in windscreen. Get someone to hold hose above bottom edge of windscreen while you check inside for leaking water running down firewall into carpet. Probably on drivers side just above where carpet first gets wet. Once you find hole in caulking compound where water gets in... plug it with silicone silastic.
Cheers

My floor boards in my Cavalier are Soaked ..


If you've been using your air conditioner during this time, and it hasn't rained at all, then the small drain at the bottom of the a/c evaporator core may be plugged. When you use the a/c to cool the car the evaporator coil [located next to the heater core in the ductwork under the dash] is very cold and moisture from the hot humid air condenses on it as a result. This condensation dribbles down the core and accumulates in the plastic housing under it where it should then drain out a small hole and drip onto the ground. If the small drain gets plugged, which happens quite often, then the water fills up the housing until it overflows and then runs out and soaks the carpet on the front passenger side. The drain is located on the engine side of the firewall, passenger side, down low where the firewall begins to curve under. Usually a puff of air will clear the clog and the drain will work fine again. If the carpet is really wet it would be a good idea to remove it and get everything dry again as it tends to get pretty smelly if left wet. One last note: usually a leaky a/c unit will only make the passenger side carpet wet unless it's been leaking for a long time while a leaky windshield seal can make both sides wet depending on where it is leaking. Good luck, hope this helps you out!

Water leaks into right side floor board during a blowing rain?


My 06 was leaking during rain also. It turned out to be the sunroof. There are two drain tubes in the front of the sunroof that run the water down the corners to the ground and two drain tubes that drain water out the back corners. The water would seep around the glass, which is expected, but both of the tubes on the front of mine were plugged, and the water would overflow behind the dash and fill my floorboards. If my H3 was leaning to the left during a storm then the drivers side would be full of water. If leaning right, then the passenger side. I had to open sunroof and blow compressed air into the drain holes to clear them, but be careful, too much air will separate tubes from sunroof and then you will have to remove the inside paneling around sunroof to get to tubes and reconnect. You may only have one side plugged. you can test it by opening sunroof and pour a little water in the small catch pan in the front of the sunroof and see if it drains as expected (to the ground under the firewall on left AND right side). You can see the holes in each corner of catch pan to drain the water. Plug one with your finger, then the other to find the plugged side. Good luck!! Hope this helps!!

Water leak passenger side in dodge caravan 2005 carpet soaked


look at the firewall on the engine side and you will see a small stub hose coming out on passenger side about even with the bottom of the heater box inside. that hose drains condensation from the ac...clear it out and you will have a dry floor. (unless heater core is leaking but you didn't mention any overheat or coolant loss so likely that's not a problem)

My 1996 tahoe is leaking water ,carpets are wet


Statistacally--most leaks come from sunroofs and yes they can be one side or the other. Happens from clogged drains. Sunroof drains run across the headliner and down the a-pillar. you can have them cleaned and checked. This is all assuming you have a sunroof. Hope I helped. Thanks.

2006 Equinox water in spare compartment and wet backseat carpet!


I am going threw the same situation with the leaking water under the front dash and standing water in the carpeting causing mold..... also i had a leak in the back hatch causing standing water in the spare tire hold. Just took it to the dealership and its a sealant leak, apparently its common in 2006 Equinox's. Mine is costing $850 to fix the seals, but would be $2000 to do the seals and carpet. My partners' dad is going to replace my carpeting, but i am having the dealership fix the seal leaks.
