How about some rubberized undercoating type product to add a layer of protection once the issue is dealt with?

Water must have been leaking a long time, when I took mine out for sunroof leak carpet was soaked also but floor had no rust.Its true though u could have water there and not know it, it takes a while to soak thru thick sound barrier and carpet.Takes forever for it to dry also.

What caused that? Just water getting trapped under the carpet?

OMG, thats unreal. Now I'm starting to freak out a little, my backseat floorboard was a pool for a while before I discovered the problem. Is there anyway to know you have this problem without ripping out the whole carpet?
