So I've been having some issues with water collecting in the drivers floorboard after driving on wet roads, I thought I had found the cause when I located two holes where something had been mounted to the inside of the fender well but after plugging the holes I still have the problem just not as bad. Does anyone have any ideas from here? I tried recreating water conditions with a hose but got nothing.

It only seems to be an issue after driving in the rain as there is no puddle if the car is just sitting in the rain. Any ideas as to where to look would be greatly appreciated.

You should search this forum for "cabin air filter seal". It is a common issue with the cars.

I did do a search but the symptoms for a cabin air filter is water on the passenger side but I have an issue with water on the drivers side, thus the reason for my post. I was unable to find any info searching that pertained to the drivers side.

What did you plug the holes with? Either there's another hole or what you used isn't doing a good enough job.

I used intake gasket silicone and I checked their hold and they're not leaking. I haven't found another hole yet, doesn't mean there may not be one, I just haven't found another one.

Have you tried pulling the carpet in the driver's side? If it only happens when driving and not when sitting, I'd think it's either road spray, or your fender dogleg on the driverside is packed up with dirt and leaves.

I'm assuming you've pulled the fender liner on the front driverside, since you've mentioned something appeared to have been mounted in there before? If not, pull it out and see if anything obvious is in there.

I still think the best way to locate the leak would be pulling back the carpeting and spraying underneath with the hose if nothing stands out.

I had pulled the carpet back and tried using a hose to identify where the leak was coming from before posting but to no avail. My bad for not mentioning it originally. I took the fender liner out but did not notice anything obvious, cleaned out some junk but it didn't appear to be enough to cause any issues. I did locate another hole in the post that holds the door, not sure what used to be there but it was threaded but I went ahead and plugged it up since it was outside of the weather stripping and had potential to let some water in.

We're suppose to have some more rain soon so I guess we'll see if that fixes it. Thanks for the suggestions.
