Default Got A Water Leak!

Got a water leak on my '05. The leak seams to be coming in from the passanger side. Front passanger floor is damp, but most of the water seems to be winding up on the passanger side, rear floor. I don't see any water marks on the door or windows. I guess I'll have to have someone sit in the car while I spray a hose. Anyone out there have this problem? Thanks.

Sounds to me that it might be the heater core!! Good Luck.

I agree with Hooligan. The heater core is located in the dash on the passenger side. Sorry, but it's a little expensive to repair due to the time/labor involved. Your probably low in coolant water so keep an eye on the level.

I really doubt that water is coming in from the outside unless someone ripped off your weatherstripping.

No, the weather stripping is fine. Funny that most of the water is in the back, not the front. I'll definately check out the heater core. Thanks.

I get puddles on my floor in the front passenger side but it is due to a leak in the corner of my windshield. Leaks in threw the corner mostly while washing and runs down the kick panel in the passenger footwell and down to the carpet. Hopefully this will be fixed when I replace the windshield in the spring.

If it is a coolant leak, you should be able to smell the 'sweet scent' of the anti-freeze.

Also, coolant is not clear.


Other sources:
If weather has been really rainy lately? Windshield sealant leak?

Possible AC Condensation if exceptionally hot and humid and ac condensation drain line plugged.

This is the craziest thing. The sky opened up here today. So I pulled over to see if I could see the water coming in. I could not. The carpet was dry before I left my house this morning. When the rain stopped, I pulled over...the carpet was soaken wet. This is in the REAR passanger side. I simply can't tell where the water is coming from. Could it be the sun roof? It seemed dry. WTF.

Weird, if you've got water on the floor there you should be able to see a water trail somewhere. Best bet is to sit inside your car and have someone spray a garden hose on that side. That much water pressure should reveal something.

Just a guess but look underneath. There may be a gromet misssing and the water is coming in from under the car.

Pull the carpet up. If it gets continuously wet you'll have to do that anyway. Good Luck!!!
