Driverside carpet soaked

Post by Oldsguy » Wed May 29, 2019 6:10 pm

Went thru carwash 2 days ago, wife tells me today the driverside floor is soaked.
No apparent leaks while washing, no leaking from sunroof(that i could see), she has told me in the past that she hears " water swooshing" in floor area...
Any ideas.

Sunroof Drain Hose is clogged up or come off (17) or the same for the Drain Valve (18).

Water is flowing around the drain and into the floor. If you lift the carpet you will find it full of water. You can pull one of the rubber plugs out of the floor to drain it or you can just let it dry up.


This will tell you what and where to check for the root cause.
