water in passenger footwell.

OK, water in passenger footwell. What is the likely source of entry. Only happens during heavy downpour. Will not happen during car wash or lite rain. Following items have been checked, Battery tray, all drains, undercarriage, door seals, window seals, door/chassis rubber boots windshield/back glass seal by glass shop, What else could cause this type leak. Help, help, help, help.

Did you have them check the sunroof??It could easily leak and land water anywhere in your car. Have them check the sunroof, make sure it fully closes in line with the roof of the car. My sunroof would always close and be slightly inward, it turns out that it was sticking partially,and the water wold seep into my rear carper.

water leak

Possible floor pan rust or hole. When you run car, pressure forces water on road under any opening in floor pan. Some jacks break plastic undercoating, causing rust hole. (happened to me) good luck. Abe g
