    Wet floorboard

    okay i i'm not sure where it's comin from but its from somewhere in the front of the car, maybe the cowl panel... there's always a damp spot in the front of the car underneath the pedals, or right behind them. i pulled up the carpet to find out what it mgiht be, because there's no leading trail as to where it's coming from. Are there any common spots that leak near the firewall? Anyone had a similar problem?
    Thanks

    Does it feel like water or engine fluid? (oil,antifreeze,brake fluid)

    definitly water, plus the wet spot shows up every time it rains.

    Most likely the seal around the front windshield has let go. probably down in one of the corners.

    i'm not sure about our cars... but on a lot of cars there is a catch pan for the AC and when you go arond corners, accelerate of brake hard the water comes out of the pan and makes it's way to the floor...

    That would all be on the passenger side of the car, not the drivers as was said. The only way for water to get there would be a leak int he seal of the front windshield, a leak in the cowl from some poorly done mod or shody repair work. Even possibly a leak in the door seal.

    Have someone with a hose water down the car while you are inside and see if you can locate the leak.
