    Water leak in drivers rear

    So ever since I have had my car noticed that the drivers side rear carpet gets wet every time it rains. Front is fine just the rear. Looked under the car and did not see any holes. Any ideas where else I could look? Thanks

    Running a hose over your rear will probably just make things wetter...Sorry I couldn't help myself

    There was a guy over on iwsti complaining about water inside his cabin. I guess he had his car gutted and saw that there were puddles that formed when it rained. I don't think he determined whether it was a door or window leak, or if the little plugs in the floor themselves were leaking.

    Sorry it's not of much help

    Yeah I tried blowing compressed air all over the bottom of the car to see if I could see it leak into the cabin but really didn't find anything.

    "Water leak in drivers rear"? Sounds like a personal problem...




    Ok, sorry, had to get that out of my system. I'd check the weather stripping as stated. Any signs of moisture on the doors?

    You mean the rear was wide open?

    I'm sorry. But this was bound to happen.

    Other than the weatherstripping did you check the grommets on the floor for leaks? Peel back the liner. There are rubber grommets under them. That could be the source.
