Water in rear passenger side footwell!

I see lots of threads about water in the front passenger footwell but not the back.

Its like some ones poured a 2ltr bottle of water onto the carpet!!

I guess its probably a hole in the floor, but haven't had time to check.

Just thought I'd ask if theres anywhere else the water could have come from i.e. if it could have ran off from one place to where its ended up?

Thanks for any pointers!

Possibly rear light clusters, but I'd think hole in the floor more likely. Take up the carpets, have a good prod.

Interesting.. How does it get from rear light to footwell?

Through the holes behind the light cluster?

What's the fix for that as that could well be the issue.

If you have aircon then it could also be a blocked aircon drainage pipe

New seals will generally fix it. But rule out the other possible issues first.

Re: Water in rear passenger side footwell!

Just pulled up carpet. Effing stinks!

Can't see any flow from boot area to footwell. Couldn't see a hole but only had a quick look.

There was a bit of water under passenger seat... Tiny pool in the corner by window

Re: Water in rear passenger side footwell!

all pointers to floor water drain holes being blocked
these are literally cuts in the floorpan
you need to carefully open these up or you will rot the floor out
wet feet in the car can cause build up of this water
you really need to take the sound deadening out though and hang it up to drip dry too

Re: Water in rear passenger side footwell!

Let me know what you find. I'm gonna have a better look this afternoon. My boot leaks and I'm suspect of the seals on light cluster. Effing car!

Re: Water in rear passenger side footwell!

My boot was wet through
Suspecting that the Rear screen washer when frozen is just putting water into the boot....

Re: Water in rear passenger side footwell!

Hmm. It may be the rear light cluster letting water in.. Behind where the bolts are that hold the cluster on is just condensation.
