Water Pooling Up on Passenger Side Floor Help!

Had a bad rain storm last night i jumped into my 02 Wrangler and noticed there was water pooled up on the floormat on the passenger side. I checked to see if the seals were bad anywhere by the door but it looks ok. My only thought was the duct but the cowl area where the fresh air comes into the cabin. Could that somehow be bringing the water into that area of the truck? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

that was happening to mine not too long ago. turned out the seal was bad on top of the back window. you're probably aware but there is a rubber plug on the floor so you can drain the water.

Are you sure the water is from the rain? Do you have a/c? If so, check the drain of the A/C. It happened to me and it was clogged.

That was happening to mine when I was running a hard top. The leak was from the upper corner of the passenger door where it meets up with the windshield frame. I ran a strip of VHB foam tape and it took care of the problem.

Well it rained pretty hard a couple of days ago with all the storms I was afraid my truck would be flooded but it wasn't. At at the same time I know I didn't use the a/c that day so I would say that is the culprit. Now as far as the a/c drainplug that's the little rubber nozzle sticking out of the firewall? If i'm correct what did you do to clean it? I've read other forums about gently sticking in a wire through it to get it to un-clog?

Also forgot to mention that my a/c is fully functional then after 15 mins it starts blowing out hot or not so cold air.

The switch that cuts out the compressor might be going out or your low on refrigerant. If you don't know AC systems then I would take it to a shop. You don't want to be venting R134 into the atmosphere.

I would look at the drain line on the condensor it could be cracked or has come off. If your air freezes up and then the ice melts it leaves a lot of water to get rid of. There is a drain tube from the pan under the condensor to outside of the body pan. Sounds like air works then condensor freezes up.
Just my thoughts

I don't suppose you are in New England? There's a guy in Vermont who fixes leaks in jeeps. I know he travels to Massachusetts. I used to get four inches, yes four inches, in my 98 TJ after a heavy rain. This was back in 1999. It was leaking around the windshield, cowl, fresh air intake, around the antenna, drivers door and tailgate. Other than those it had no leaks. Anyway, he took care of almost all of it. Now I just keep a thick towel rolled up and stuff it under the inside of the door jamb for the small amount I get now. It might be a franchise thing...called Leak Doctor I think.

I have had this same problem and the culprit was the windshield seal. I used a bit of silicon on the inside of the window at the bottom between the glass and the black rubber and have not had a leak since.

It ended up being the damn drain in the cowl area.....took a 3 foot drill bit and jammed it in there and then out came the water. thanks for all the replies!
