Mine does that after every wash/rain storm. After sealing nearly everything, I just gave up and let it happen. My solution: 2 sets of thick floormats.

Door seals and one of the 4 sunroof drains are most likely. Pour water in your open sunroof (gutter area) and watch for all 4 drains to pee out near the tires through the rocker molding.

Aside from that, if your spare tire well is also full, and overflowing into the passenger cabin and under the seat to the footwell, seal the glass of the rear window to the black seal at the bottom of the window with clear or black silicon rtv.

I've had the rear window leak on the Zilla (fixed it) and the door seals AND sunroof drains on the 95. All fixed now on both cars.

Front floor or rear ?

My father in law just had this problem and amazing to me it was the plastic shield around the wipers.

odd but it "tweaked" with age, and allowed water to get in behind it and then down into the natural air vents in his car, that then allowed with water to travel inside and into what he first thought was just the back seat but found the front carpet wet also.

Now this is a Mercury sable but..... I have a co worker with the same problem on her grand-am and replacing the shroud (for lack of a better name) fixed the problem.

Logic does not apply to water.

Well, things are kinda warming up here. Floor is still frozen. The passanger side rear floor mat is froze to the carpet from the water. But I got some of these water collectors (DampRid) from Lowes.



Is this one of the suroof drains? Pitcture is the front of the passanger side door jam:


Up close:


Also, a nice shot of the condensation INSIDE on the rear window But the moisture collecotrs should take care of it:

If that is the drain, where the heck is mine? I always thought the drain was where that foam is sticking out. It'* very porous. You don't seem to have it. But you have something I don't.

The drains are NOT visible in the door opening. They are INSIDE the A-pillar and C-pillar. Not visible from the outside with the door open at all.
