Default Back floor turned into a pond.

97 se, a few feeks ago when I was looking in the back seat after it was outside on a friday there was some wetness on the floor in the back. I sent the car into Raytown repair for like a week or so cause they had to wait on some parts, it rained a few times over that time and I think yeah it also snowed. When I got the car from the shop and returned home I saw that there was more water than usuall, and there was a puddle, I made sure there were no liquid containers in the back. There were none, and I wiped up the water with a towel, today at at school more water seemed to show up on the back drivers side floor. Please tell me what the hell is going on PLEASE!

do you have a moonroof?

how are the door seals? are there gaps in the seems?

can you take out the backseat and see any holes or anything? (its really easy, just pull from the back upwards towards you)

My guess is your sunroof drains are either plugged or disconnected.

Your sunroof has 4 drains. Even if water gets past the seal, it can drain down the A pillars and C pillars. Just remove the interior A and C pillar trim and check to see if the hoses are connected to the roof. Also run a wire down through each one to make sure they're clear.
