Hey guys,

So it rained the other day and I find my passenger floorboard soaked with water.

I was parked on an inclined driveway, with the hood higher than the rest of the car.

Anyone else have this problem? Would it be a leak in the windshield? Help! I hate the smell of wet carpet.

Thanks

Maybe clogged sunroof drains? I had this happen on my 1G Legend. Clear as much of it out with a pipe cleaner and some shop air and I was good to go.

i would assume that i need to open the sunroof to get to the drains. also if i just use a coat hanger where will the trash in the drain go?

my trunk floor board gets wet too any suggestion on that?

I remember on my G1 legend, the rear drains will run through into the trunk and out in the rear wheel well area. The fronts drain out to under the front windshield cowling.

Best thing to do is vacuum out all of the water, and sprinkle baby powder all over the affected area(s), then hose the car down, hard. The water trail will be evidenced in the baby powder, and you can move forward with finding the cause.

Remember, if it's fresh water, it's coming from topside. If it's dirty, probably coming from underneath.

you are the man!!! any suggestions for my trunk being wet also. this is really running me for a loop because my car is very clean and never been wrecked. I heard it may be the taillight gaskets any suggestions would be great.

The trunk being wet could be the actual trunk seal itself, or it could be a body plug. If it were taillight gaskets, you'd more than likely see the water in the lens assemblies.

Either way, that trick will work there too :)
