    Angry Lot of Water on the Floor

    Jumped in the car (2002 B4C) the other morning, and noticed there was a lotta dew on the inside of the windshield. Wiped it off and drove to the station. Also noticed the car smelled real funky inside. . .

    Yesterday, I discovered the floor - front and back - driver side and passenger - is very very wet. Carpet is totally soaked, especially in the back. I haven't tried to determine the source of all the water, but we had a lot of rain several days ago, so there must be a really bad leak somewhere.

    Does anybody have a suggestion on where to start ? BTW, the car has no t-tops.

    This problem and no t-tops? You're sure you didn't have a window cracked during the rain?

    Well. . . I don't think so, but I'm gonna get the thing dried out and wind up the windows, hit it with a hose and see what happens. . . I don't know of any other way to diagnose the problem

    On the passenger side at least ... see if your AC drain is clogged up. That happened with me and I had literally 2 INCHES of water in the floorboard. Also, check your weatherstripping along where the window should seal

    That would be the best way to diagnose a window leak problem. The fact that you don't have a t-top car makes it a bit stranger though.

    Thats the first thing I thought of. Then I read that the entire car was soaked. When that has happened to me, it was just the passenger side. I would check the drain, I dont know how else water would be getting in.

    The only thing I could think of otherwise would be with there being no body around the entire window would be the window not sealing properly from 1) bad/deteriorated weatherstripping or 2) both window motors going out, not allowing the window to roll up all the way?

    I had this problem in my hardtop z. I tool some silicon caulk to the plastic piece where it meets the winshield and solved it. It only took me about 6 months to figure it out

    Smittro: I saw those pics earlier while searching around for clues concerning my leak. . . I guess I too am gonna hafta tear the interior panels out along with the seats, etc. to figure this out.

    As regards the A/C condensate tube, I doubt that is the problem. Haven't been running the A/C, but I have been running the defrost some - which I guess runs the A/C. . .

    Damn ! I hate having to deal with a leaky car. . .

    I thought of coolant too, but it doesn't smell like that. It smels more like a pile of rotten dirty underwear. . .

    More Info. . .

    Yesterday, I pulled the bottom seat cushions out from the back seat, and underneath there were deep puddles of water on both sides - driver and passenger.

    I'm still trying to get the car dried out prior to performing a test with a garden hose. By the look of the rust stains on the driver side carpet under the cushions, I'd say this leak has been a problem for quite some time.

    Stay tuned.

    Wow, I'm sorry to hear that. Having that rust is not a good thing at all.
