Wet floor mats

My drivers side floor mat has a puddle in it when it rains. Anybody know where it could be leaking from?

Im thinking maybe it's coming from inside the fire wall from the vent on the hood right in front of the windshield.

Just a thought but i had the same problem when i bought my jeep and took it off-road the first time. Under the cowl ( in front of the windshield) it is shaped almost like a V and in the center there is a mouth type opening that is plastic. When it rains or gets wet water runs down the opening into a tube that drains under the jeep. It is VERY COMMEN for the opening or the tube to become cloged from mud or debris. When it clogs water will accumulate under the cowl and enter the inside of the jeep threw the AC intake or blower motor.... To fix this u can stick a coat hanger or compressed air down the opening to unclog the tube. I would get sum water to flush it out after you get it uncloged.. ( you have to remove the cowl to do this. There are 5-6 Philips head screws holding it on) Sorry for the long response I hope I helped someone...

This ended up fixing my issue, The guy i bought it off of said the blower wasnt working at all so i looked into it further. But before i did that i was washing it one day and prolly rinsed the hood area off a little more than i should have... the drain was plugged solid, water built up and dumped into vent, through the blower motor and onto passenger side floor, i know you said it was on the driver side but this is somewhere to start.

You get to the blower by taking the cowl. There are a few philps screws holding it on you will have to lift the hood to access 2 of them. The blower is on the driver side.. But if water is coming into the jeep it has to do with the cowl drain being pluged not the blower. Once u remove the cowl you will see what i am talking about..

Can you take out the cowl drain? It is really deep and clogged to the top with sand.

Wouldn't recommend it. If its clogged to the hilt, you may want to take care where your driving...

Well here in south Florida, everything is sand. The mud is sandy, puddles are sandy, the damn streets are sandy. It really is a problem for all the jeeps in my area because it gets into everything. The only way to counter act is to deep clean often. But me being lazy I let it go for a year. Hence why it was clogged to the top.

Bitchin'... Move north Time to get into a regular routing of cleaning it out.

I had a bad leak last year, took of the cowl cover, silconed all over inside and even the bolt areas and no issues since. Mind you my cowl drain was completely clear in my case.

Maybe look into a vent cover for that area, might actually help in your case.

I want to move north, I'm not sure if I can do the winters. Haha I'm actually looking at the covers now. They look like hood scoops on a muscle car.

Yep thats exactly it.

I unfortunately will not move south within my province(I'm about 9 hours drive north from the US/Canada border). I can't stand the heat. My philosophy is this: its easier to warm up then cool down...

The drain empties far up from the bottom of the jeep with lots of engine and drive train stuff in the way of the bottom of the drain. So I couldnt get to the bottom. What I ended up doing was wiggling a stick in the drain from the top while flushing it with water, and that worked really well.

Well if that works for ya, keep at it then! Or maybe spraying the inside of the cowl drain with something that helps lubricate it...??
