93 Cavalier Wagon. Wifes Car. Whenever it rains, water ... Lots of
it.. appears first in the right rear floor and then spreads through
the car floor. We have tried poring water down the windows and no
sign of leaking..We also poured water down the front vents, and
windshield. Nothing here. Car is parked in the rain so its not
coming from underneath. (I hope) Anyone else with this problem solved
The floor pan in that car is all galvanized steel probably wont rust
out.The one thing to check there are 4 gage holes 2 front and 2 aprox.
in the center of the foot well about 2 X 4 inches in size, that have a
cover plate that has a sealer applied that could be leaking but it would
be rare, can see these from the underside of car so you dont have to
remove the carpet. i think it could be comming from around the door seals
Duh. He tried pouring water in the front vents already.
By all means look underneath and inspect the floor pans. Galvanized
doesn't mean much beyond a few years when salt action works on it.
If it has a roof rack, those mounting holes can leak. The roof has an
inner layer of metal. Water that leaks through from the top or into
rusty places around the window moldings will end up diverted to the
sides and can run down to the floor.
