water in driver side floorboard

I have read many post about water in the passenger side floor, i know its either the heater core or the a/c drain. But when it rains, when im driving or parked, my driver side floor is soaked. What is the issue with this? Anyone else heard of this issue? I have yet to experience the passenger side drama, atleast i know what that entalls in repairs. Anyone?

I'd say if it only happens when its raining, your windshield may not be sealed properly

yes

the reason I asked is - I remember a guy who had a 2nd Gen Ram, and he was having wet carpet problems, and I remember he found the problem was related to his rear window- so don't forget to check there as well

I have a 66 mustang, this is the only car I have owned long enough I guess to learn this... But in almost all cars, the cowl vent is an area (below the winshield directly behind the hood) that can rust out and leak OR get plugged with twigs/dirt/leaves and crap... what you have is a cavern, that water can go into, then a dam around that so the air goes above it. if the dam is damaged, or cant drain water away then water can overflow into the cab, POSSIBLY... Surely they design it a little better in 97 and up... but Im sure it is possible...

so if you pump water into that area, there are 2 posibilites, one is that leaves a dirt and crap have plugged up the drains (that let water out yet let air into the cab). or there is a rust or seal problem.

and this is probably less likely than rear window, yet it is an easy check, after everything is dry, place your garden hose at back of hood, below windshield... if it dont leak, then maybe door seals (if it wasnt the rear window)...

Pray its not the heater core! I just did my friends heatercore with him.... WOW That was a chore! Almost have to drain the Ac lines You can just barely do it without. Took a good 3 days to do his! You have to take everything out of the inside! bare firewall! almost.

Next time it is wet taste if it is antifreeze

By the way... Heater core is on the drivers side of the ac box on the floor but it drains out the freshair flap onto the passenger side. But its more on the tranny hump then the passenger floor.
