Help! My passenger front carpet is waterlogged. I pulled off the carpet but can't find the source of water. I thought it was from running the heater...maybe water circulating was leaking...but....there is no wetness at the very top/front of the carpet. The only wet area is directly where you place your feet. I dried it all off and can't locate any source. The freeze plugs are still intact and the only time I noticed the last time and this one, it rained. Could there be a worn seal somewhere that rain or melted snow can somehow work its way into that area?

Thanks for any clues

Joe

It's the rain. Try rolling your windows up tight and closing the doors tight, the next time it rains. I have the same problem anytime there is a real downpour. But, mostly I keep my windows slightly rolled down, in case I lock my keys in my vehicle. It's a habit. But, water can get in the doors/window seams and run down unto the floor. Water can also get through the top seal if there is a real downpour. Sometimes, I can feel a little spray on my face, if it is a really bad rain. After a rain now, I always check my passenger, drivers and rear floor, because the first time I noticed it, I notice surface rust, and I don't want that to go through my floor pan, so I wiped it off. And, then I put paper towels under and on top of the carpet until it was dry. Good Luck.

Note: I also had that problem when my top wasn't completely latched down in the front. And, I remember there was a problem with the way my weatherstrip over the window being out of alignment. But, those were easy fixes, and I still occasionally get a wet passenger floor.

Need a little more info about your vehicle...
Is it a hard top or soft top; year might help too....

Most leaks can be traced to either a roof panel seal on the hardtops or a worn door seal... On the soft tops; a hole in the material or a worn door seal. On both tops I have read that the door can be readjusted slightly to seal a leaking door seal.

11 JK water probs

I have a 2011 JK and have experienced similar probs with water after a severe downpour. First things first, I pulled the floor plugs out to allow the water to drain. It looks like a door seal problem I'll have to troubleshoot.

I have the same problem. doesn't have to rain for it to happen. I've read that it could be that the A/C isn't draining properly. Taking it to the shop next week to see what they say. Good thing it's still under warranty
