This is about a 2007 Sebring convertible. The passenger side floorboard seems to be either wet or always damp. There are no leaks around the window, or from the top. It takes forever to dry out and then when it rains again, it's wet.
The rest of the car is dry and the only place I can think that it may be leaking from is the firewall.
Could that be right? How do I check it and what should I do?
Thanks for the quick reply. It's a new to me car, I bought last August (2010), so I don't know if the windshield was replaced or not. I don't remember the floor getting wet last year.
I'm mechanically challenged, so bear with me please. The drains would be on the outside of the window I'm pretty sure, but the heater box, would that be inside the car or under the hood.
Know that you mentioned the drains, if they are outside, I'm wondering if some of the little leaves from the tree that I park next to may have clogged them. I'll pull out the owner's manual this weekend and see if I can find them.
Thanks so much for the help! I really don't want to take it into the shop if it is something I can do myself with my limited knowledge.
Thanks, on the drains, it does make sense, since that is the side of the car that is the near the tree. I don't "think" it was in an accident, but you never know. What about the heater box? Where do I find that?
Hey Rick, Just wanted to update you on your suggestions. Over the weekend cleaned out the windshield area and I "think" I found the drain holes. at any rate I cleaned out the whole area and then washed the car. So far so good, the carpet is still dry. We won't have any rain this week, but I'll keep checking. Thanks for all your help!
Oh, and who the E designed the car so that the battery is in the fender well??? I had to have that replaced on Saturday. Can't complain though, apparently it was the original battery. But really, having to take the front wheel off to get to the battery??
Hey no making fun of me! I bought the car because my DD said I would look "hot" in it. Sad to say,that she was right, it is not the ideal vehicle in a southern state where temps reach 90-100 in the summer for months. That damn top just bakes the car. But spring and fall, WOO HOO!!
Man, I miss my minivan for the room, yeah it was a Dodge too, but I got my money's worth out of it, so there! ;D
Usually the heater and air conditioner coil is on the passenger side. A leaking water hose could be the problem. Check to see if the water reservoir keeps needing refilling after a few days. Also there is most likely a drain hose under the airconditioner coil that may be lose or off
