Pull back the front carpeting a bit and look to see if the water is coming from the seams in the floor board.

Ok thanks, I just tried doing it and it did pop off but I cant move my carpet that far over with out taking out my seat...Now I know there was a thread on here talking about this but don't know what to look it under as, isn't there some fuse I have to take out before taking the seat out so the airbags don't employ?

How would I know if its coming from the seams? shoot water up from the bottom of my car with a hose while that carpet is pulled back?

pull up the carpet and padding and look for rust holes in the floor. i could see the ground on the passenger side of my car, so i covered it with some stainless steel sheet metal
