    Puddle in rear - didn't know abut the drains - pictures inc

    So after a REALLY heavy rain, I found both sides of the rear seats filled with water. Upon investigation (about 2 minutes) I discovered the side drain plugs. There was actually standing water inside the rear quarter panel.

    If you dont't already know, all you have to do is put the top 1/2 way down (1st picture), stick your hand between the top mechanism and the quarter panel (second picture), and push your finger into the drain (3rd picture). There was at least 2 gallons of water on the rear floor, It'll take some time to dry out. may be time for new carpet and padding.

    Yikes! As long as you get it all dried out fairly quickly you should be ok. Get some fans on it to move the air over the carpet.
