We have had tons of rain here last few days. Just got in the car today to go do a few things and I find the the floor on driver side just under where the door speaker is is wet. Where could the water have come from? Anyone had this happen? And I have a puddle of water under the handle of the hand brake from sunroof. Any ideas? Thanks

Window seals would explain the dampness by the door. As for the puddle under the emergency brake handle, there are drain plugs for the sunroof that can get clogged. If they become clogged water can't drain and will leak into the interior.

Check out the DIY below, it shows you how to clean them.

I hope this helps!

Man, you got lucky. I had my entire driver's side soaked before (front, rear, under seat, the whole side). Took like 3-4 days to completely dry it out (this is after soaking up as much as I can), then spraying it with Lysol to avoid any mildew build up. Anyways, you have your answer above. Just felt like sharing[cool].

Thanks Jason. And ya man that would suck. Not pay attention. And step in and get a wet foot. But mine is just the carpet is damp but it goes from just below the door speaker back to the clutch peddle

Hey Jason I was looking at the DIY and I did not know that the drain went down and to the back. What are the drains in the from door jams? Are they sunroof too or something else?

I was referring to the seals around the windows. That's really the only place water can get in where the door jams are. I'm willing to bet that the majority of it is coming from the sunroof though.

Are there any signs of your headliner getting wet?

Ya the head liner was wet to touch but I had water dripping out of the clear light covers right where the sunroof switch is.

The headliner was not wet anywhere but near windshield and around the lights there where the sunroof switch is
