Default water leaking in

my daughters 2007 pt has a problem that i cannot find an answer for i'm hoping someone here might be able to help. we had a heavy downpour a couple of nights ago and even though the car didn't move there is water sloshing around inside and is coming out of the blower motor( or it appears to be) the motor still works and you can here the water moving while driving,
i have checked the cabin filter and cleaned out the drain hole at the bottom of the front wings but water is still getting in, where should i look ,
thank you
Anthony

That could very well be a heater core leak...the rain was just a coincidence.

Does her PT have a sun roof? If so, the drains are probably clogged. Although if you can hear the sloshing, LionPT is most likely on the right road. Have you tried clearing the a/c drain pipe? Maybe it's clogged.

it happened before , last time we had bad rain , abouit 2 months ago , i checked the drain then and cleaned out the bottom of the wings which were pretty full of old leaves, there is no water leak so i doubt if the heater core is leaking , its a convertible so no sun roof, i will look at the ac vent that's a good idea , would that leak back into the car?

Yes, if it's clogged. The water has nowhere to go then except back in the car. And thanks for letting us know it's a convertible. I don't have one, but suspect there are other possible sources of water getting in with a convertible. I'm out.

Have you had the windshield replaced? How does a plastic wiper cowl panel that covers the cabin filter look against the windshield? Perfectly? I seem to remember someone else there and having to silicone things to fix your issue..

I'm assuming you are smart and accurate in saying that this is after heavy rain, and it's not from a clogged AC core drain tube

You could always bust out a pressure washer and try to duplicate it.
