My carpet was frozen this morning.
 
I have rubber floor mats, but for some reason I get water accumulation under the driver's side mat, and today I hop in to find my rubber mat gliding nicely on top of a thin layer of carpet ice. Any know why I would be getting this much water on the drivers side.


Info:_________
Soft top, full doors, windows up, not driven in three days, no rain in that time, not the first time I've had this water issue on the driver's side.

The one time I actually experienced a leak was when there was a tropical storm hitting the Boston area this summer, and water was trickling in at both corners where the windshield meets the top. Any ideas on how to stop that from happening?

Thanks for your help.

Well it's the squirrels under the hood. They were stuck in the jeep for 3 days, where else did you think they would piss?

Seriously tho, when was the last time you ran the AC or it rained?

Check your window seal and door seal. Go to the local car wash and blast the hell out of it and check for leaks. Look under the carpet to make sure your drain plug is installed too.

If it smells sweet, it's anti-freeze and you most likely have a heater core leak but I believe they usually show up on the passenger side.

I don't have AC. It rained last Thursday, and after that it's kind of a blur thanks to sleep deprivation.

Also, why would there be accumulation under the rubber floormat, but the mat itself is dry as a bone?

Might have been built up some where and it slowly leaked out. That is the beauty in our beast...they leak!

Yes it will if you do not mix it properly.

MHM

Looks like pure antifreeze starts to freeze at 8 degrees but depending on the water/antifreeze ratio it will either go up or down.
