theres a hole in my passenger floor....

so my girlfriend was complaining the other day that the jeep was too loud and i had kinda noticed myself that there seemed to be a lot of noise coming from that side so i decided to investigate. i lifted up the floor mat (which i probably should have done before i bought it ) to find a hole. not a rust hole or a drain hole, but a 3-4 inch perfectly round hole with some type of metal cover with tabs that didn't fit too well. i pulled the little cover off and the hole is directly over the frame. is this something else that my stupid PO did? or is this supposed to be there? and if it is supposed to be there, what would be the point of a hole in the floor right above the frame?

He may have needed to access that are of the frame so he made an access hole. So how do you fix it so it is water and sound tight?

Easy work. Put the cover flush against the floor board. Is it the part that was drilled or is it bigger??

If it is bigger and has enough over the edges you can drill and rivet it back in place. Use some sealant and the undercoat both sides to prevent any further rust.

If it is smaller I would fabricate a new piece and do as outlined above.

X2. It's an easy beginner fix that's fun when you are starting out. Unfortunately, I'm a little hard pressed to understand how a 3-4" round hole covered by carpet could be the source for that much noise in the cab. But, I guess, in a jeep one mans 'noise' is going to be another mans 'music'. State of mind thing

No carpet. Probably should have been more specific. Its a rhino lined tub with rubber floor mats. And I don't mind the noise. I understand that its a metal tub with a motor and if you want quiet then don't drive a jeep. I've just noticed that it is significantly louder on the passenger side.

So I did a little more digging now that it is daylight and have made more discoveries. The drivers side is exactly the same with a large hole just over the frame but with no cover. Each floorboard has four holes of assorted sizes, there are three on each side between the seat and the door, and one behind each seat right behind where the seat belt bolts to the floor

I wasn't being critical about you not enjoying the noise. Sorry if it sounded that way. The four holes are 'stock' as in my 87. They make it so easy to wash it out with a hose. Not something you can do in a Prius. And I have to add jeeps are so much quieter without the doors and top. But I have to admit I'm so spoiled living in Florida the way I drive the jeep. Got down to the lower 40's the other day and I was cold to the bone. Hope summer is early for a lot of you.
