My 1994 Nissan Altima GLE 81k miles is leaking water in the passenger side and flowed to the rear. The whole carpet under the passender seat soaked and so is the rear. It was raining furious here in NY for about an hour from the left overs of Frances. The water was 2" high on the floor mats in the rear. This the first time this has happened. I used a cloth and cleared out some of the water. It was like rust color and rust smell. Anyone think it is the evaporator lines? Are they easy to check?
I would greatly appreciate your insight as to what the problem may be and how it could be fixed.
hey, sorry to hear that, my car was the same, but ont he drivers side... mine was becasue of holes in the floor board.... under the carpet is about an inch to an inch and a half of foam, this foam sucks up all the water,a nd because the rear is lower than the frontit probably all goes back there and levels itsself with the front.... so pull up the carpet, and see wahts going on... if you have holes they are in the front, just get plates welded in, or pop rivit plates and seal with rtv sealant or body filler or something., if they are small enough body filler will work
Well my car was parked in my back yard and it was sloped up a tad bit. I felt the carpeting around the sidewalls of the floor and they were dry. So I am thinking that something over flooded and over spilled into the cabin floor area or even thru the speakers. Anyone else have this issue and found a solution.
I have the exact same problem. It has happen to me twice. I vacuumed it up, I thought I had left the windows cracked or something.
So let me get this thing right...There is holes in the floor board. So they have water coming in from them...How? I park in my driveway, and it has a little slope to it. I have never noticed water in the rear. It only happens when it rains a lot.
I am going to take out the passenger seat and carpet too and see whats causing this. The bump or frame right beginning of the passenger seat is dry but I put my hand after that, under the passenger seat and the whole floor was soaked. There was so much water that it flowed to the rear. I also noticed rust stains right under the T-bar so i will also take a look at that.
the floor is the only thing that is wet in my car. The sides, and directly under the dash is dry. It is in the middle of the floor pan. Also I wonder why it doesn't happen when I wash my car. I wash about 3 times a week.
my water got in from driving... the front wheels spin towarsds the cabin... where the holes are.... the foam absorbs all the water... the waters moves to the lowers spot.. the rear... i ahd like a galloin or two of water in all that floor foam... [not joking]
this is how mine was....
you could tell if water was comign from somewhere else from water marks or wetness...
From what I know when your heater core goes it doesn't leak coolant. It leaks water, I seen this before in a Maxima. The heater core went and the passenger side was soak with water. I also sort of had this problem in my '99 but it was on the driver side. There was water in the car only when it rained hard or I sprayed water directly where the hole on my door was. I had a dent on the top of the door which let the water in and the water ran down the door and then eventually into the car onto the floor.
It did it, it did it! While I was driving! It happened yesterday. I think I know where it is coming in at. Not sure what it is called, but yall know that piece by the door, and the dash. I saw a little stream of water. My floor is soaked. Now how do I fix it? I know it is somewhere behind it, but where?
It is soaked! I took the passenger side floor area apart and my floor pan is wet. The sound deadning material, and the carpet is soaked. The water is coming in when I drive, I figured that out. I also figured out that it isn't comingfrom that piece by the door, and the dash. I have pictures, but I can't upload them to my vbgarage. I have looked in the haynes manual, and the FSM, and there is nothing about this. Someone please comment on what to do about this problem.
