Icon8 Back seat and floor wet

Okay, well I've taken the back seat out and the passenger front seat out and taken my amp off the floor, because my seat was wet as and so was the floor, but not the top of my rubber mat I got the top was dry, well that is when I discovered the wet floor (hours later so it could if just dried but I doubt that).
So I've opened the sun roof pored water in and both the front and back drain was working since I could see it dripping out at the front and back (near the wheels) anyway so I say in the car while someone ran the hose on it and nothing no water through the sun roof leaking into the ground (only dripping but the water went down the drain tubes)
But the boot is leaking bad but in saying that I have already taken a plug out of the boot so it couldn't really be that.... Because after the rain I checked my boot since I covered it with a tarp, and there was only a little puddle of water but not much at all.. So I'm really stumped on this..

Re: Back seat and floor wet

Water can come in anywhere there is an opening in the metal. Windows, doors, sunroof, trunk opening, tail light openings, antenna. There are also holes in the floor which normally have plugs. A wet rear seat and floor usually indicates a trunk leak. You'll need to look closely anywhere water could possibly come into the car. Normally there will be signs of where the water is coming in after it's dried.

Re: Back seat and floor wet

I know where some leaks in the boot, last time it flooded it was like full but I've pulled a plug out (where the spare tyre is so it won't fill again) but If it was the boot the back of the seat in the back would be wet, it only wet where your butt goes and your feet go...

I've been running water over it with the hose, so far not much luck..
Thank you for your help tho I'll keep looking, I'm starting to think plugs in the floor, I just don't get it's only one side just so
Confusing ahaha

Re: Back seat and floor wet

Pulling the plug out in the spare tire well will keep water from pooling, but it does nothing to stop the water from coming in and getting things wet. Have you figured out how the is water getting into the trunk area?

You might want to consider removing the rear seat until you fix this in order to reduce the mold and mildew inside the car.

Re: Back seat and floor wet

If it's just the passenger side definitely give that antenna a good look-see.
But also check the seal between the tail light(s) and the car. Maybe with the boot open, run some water in the groove where rain would 'channel' with it closed and view where it goes. Say like a quart bottle at a time.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

Re: Back seat and floor wet

Hay, I know this kind of late but maybe there is something I can add to this as I've experienced the same thing.

1. When you run the A/C; moisture builds up underneath the dashboard and runs down the foot well. this in turn soaks everything on the floor. It's almost impossible to dry I think. my floor is still wet from this. I have not found any resolution yet.

2. deluge rain fall. You probably check the drains on your sunroof the same way i did by filling a large bucket of water and pouring it over the crevices around the sunroof. It may drain properly with this test but if your experience heavy rain fall for a period of time, especially if you park near any trees recently before the event, a combination of those tubes being too narrow to drain out fast enough coupled with the possibility of partial blockage will play into the water back tracking into the cabin.

just my ideas. hope it works out for you.

Re: Back seat and floor wet

You can have the boot seals replaced if you are sure that it is the source of the leak.
