Driverside Leak?

So I went out to my car this morning to go to work and it was raining...I got in my car and I heard my feet splashing around in water...there was about a 1/4 inch of water on my floor on the driver side...it only does this when it rains hard...any ideas of what it could be

Do you have a sunroof? Or ever had your windshield replaced? There was a thread on here not too long ago with a similar problem... the problem was their windshield I believe.

Nope no sunroof...and never had the windsheild replaced..lifted up the carpet on my driver side and there was a puddle off water...I think maybe the seal around my door isn't sealing properly

have you made any holes in the firewall to run audio wires? If not seal up properly, you can end up with a leak just like the one you describe.

It actually doesn't do it anymore..I took the door seal off and cleaned all around the door and put it back together and it is fine now

good to hear...if it ever does it again, just clean up the water so its completly dry and get one of ur friends to use a garden house and spray one spot at a time with u in the car looking for the leak...start around the door where it meets the fender, then the wheel well, windshield and then cowl to try and pin point it
