Unhappy Wet Floorboard.

Every now and then my passenger floor board is wet??
It's clear and has no smell. I've noticed that lately when my fan is on (air conditioning or heater) 1 or 2 that the fan has been getting louder... could the two be related?
I replaced my cabin air filter last month and the sound was gone until a couple days ago.. now it's back to the same, and the fan is louder when it's on a lower setting

I am unable to speak to the water issue (however, someone will be able to), but fan noise in these cars is commonplace. Mine is horrible on anything but the highest setting. It's kind of a whirling/creaking noise. Replacement of the blower motor would probably get rid of it, but the housing has to be cut in order to do so.

Same settings 1 and 2 sound like a playing card in bike spokes. I don't think the water is in any relation. Is it raining when this happens or very cold with lots of dew?

I do believe the water in the car happens more when it's raining, dew, really humid.

Have you inspected your door seals?

I actually made a how-to (even though I haven't done it yet). You got me motivated!

Wet Floorboard.

There's a plastic piece that is close to the drain plug but on the inside, if its broken water will come in.

That's what mine was

any1 ever find the plastic piece near the drain plug this guy is referring too? I'm having the same problem on my cobalt with the passenger floorboard being soaked, normally after it rains.
