Default Leaking drain?

O.k. I've searched the old posts and I can't find anything. I noticed a puddle of water forming on my passenger side floor board. I foloowed it up and it is coming from somewhere under the dash. It only happened when it was pouring down the rain for a couple of days. Could it be a drain of some sort or possibly that I need to replace the rain gaurd on my firewall?

I'd put my money on it being the moonroof or sunroof, or whatever they decided to call the ones y'all have.

Yes, there are a number of threads discussing the sun/moon roof drains and how to repair.

There is a drain hose in your A pillar that can become disconnected inside or plugged. Try a search using this new info to find the variuos fixes described...

Firewall leaks are also not uncommon. Try searching for a leak topic by jr's3800.

true, but they are a LOT more common on the driver side, not the passenger

Where did you find the wet spot exactly? Was it over toward the hump, more over towards the door? And was it the front passenger side only, or was the rear wet as well?

This can be a PITA.... But I hope we have learned enough to maybe point you in the right direction

I first noticed it on the floor board. When I started feeling around I pressed on the hump under the dash consol and the water came through. It'* only right there in the front. I am assuming that it is leaking somewhere on or around that hump and dripping down.

Not sure where all of my pics are or even my own thread... But I feel that you could possibly have a leak at the HVAC Intake... Which may actually be caused by the passenger side windshield wiper arm, as there is a gasket under the body for the arms bushing... This is where I found one of my leaks.. I had many more after that
