Well, I've been reading the threads about water pooling on the floorboards, but haven't found anything about the back seats yet. I pulled the back seat bottom, and found that the foam under the driver'* side was wet. I assume this points to the back window leaking? There are definitely some iffy looking areas around the edge of the back glass which I tried to silicone over, but maybe I missed a spot? Or can water that gets by the door gaskets end up here? Another backseat question- are there any other fasteners holding the vertical seatback in place other than the 2 regular nuts and 2 funky hex nut fasteners?
It is big relief to get that putrid smelling carpet & rotten underlayment out of the car.
I found that the primary wetness was on the driver'* side. In fact, I had water pooled under the rear passenger side footwell, and it hasn't rained for days!
I am first going to replace the front door seals, then if that doesn't work, I will pull the front doors and check the inner panel seal.
One last question-- I pulled these two little squares that are covering circular holes on either side at the perimeter frame/channel under the bottom of the rear doors. I imagine these were put there for a reason-- to keep water out?? Or are they just there for sound proofing?
