Thumbs down Floorboard leak

It seems like when it rains, just the drivers side of the floor board gets wet.

What do i do?!

You still under warranty? There was another post on this somewhere I just read yesterday. A guy had his car "pee" on his girlfriend when it was raining.

LOL ok, so your Balt is potty trained somewhat... I wonder if there is a drain plug under the body of the car? I've never looked into that but being that I live in Seattle, WA, I think I should!!

Sounds like either a drain plug or maybe a problem with the weather stripping around the door.

Im the guy whos car pees. I did a bunch of research and discovered its some issue with the AC. I found the TSB number and everything and it sounds exactly like whats going on with my car. I drove around today with the AC off and guess what? No leakage. Im gonna have to take it in for a warranty repair. :-/

Lol oh you're the guy.

Ok, I was wondering if it may be the a/c. I'll have the dealership check it out I guess. Will it cost for them to just check and see what it is you think?

My passenger side was doing this recently. Can't remember what the dealership said it was but I'll look to see if I can find my invoice and I'll post what they found later.

Talk to your dealer about Technical Service Bulletin #050138016. This TSB is for "WATER LEAKING ON FRONT PASSENGER SIDE FLOOR OF VEHICLE, WATER BLOWING OUT OF VENTS (SEAL HEATER CORE COVER)." I recall reading elsewhere that the fix for this is to blow-down the line that drains from around the heater core as it may become clogged, and to replace the seal around the heater core. I am going to attempt to go to my dealership on saturday, but it may have to wait until next weekend while I am out of town and don't need the car. I will report back.

The leak in my car is just on the drivers side though.
Keep me updated though.
Thanks for the info Sindri.
