A few nights back I headed into town to get a chocolate shake, just as the sun was going down. It felt great out, so I rolled down all 4 windows about 1/4 or so of the way down. When I got home, rolled up my front windows (I drive with them down often) like always, locked the car, went inside and didn't even think about it. The next day I wake up hearing my mom telling me I left my windows down in the back and we had a bad storm. I go outside to find the back of my car soaked. Soaked as much up as I could, pulled up the carpet and back seat to find more water standing. Got it all cleaned up and left the back doors open with fans in the car for a couple hours. Anyway, heres the only picture I got. It was NOT a good way to start the day....
The water looks dirty for some reason, must have been the lighting..
Get some DampRid from Home Depot and throw it in the car to help suck out more of the moisture. I used some when I realized my blower motor was letting water into the passenger footwell of my Intrigue. For 10 bucks, it worked great.
Protip: If you don't know what you're doing, don't do it.
I've had this happen to me a couple of times with my Impala. I just used a bathroom towel to soak up the water in the door and let the sun soak up the water in the seat which was minimal. Only on teh bolster part. ( I guess it's called.)

How much miles are on those seats? How much pounds of ass were applied to the seat during every trip? Lol
This thread is about *this* far from being about me, all oiled up, eating chili mac in a walmart bathroom.
Yeah, I just grabbed a towel(4) to get out as much water as I could.
Thanks for the tip Iffy, I too have problems with water in the footwell. I need to get to the blower motor to check the seal and if there are leaves in it.
Check the windshield gasket above the blower motor, thats usually the culprit.
Closing your windows with the A/C on and set to recirculate will also help to dry out your interior.

sucks to hear that man. I did that once with a rental. Except when I went inside, it was a beautiful sunny day, couple hours later, I was taking pictures of the sudden heavy downpour just to realize later that I had the window's completely open.

Yeah, the filter was horrible. Very easy to change, but there was a plastic thing that was in there in front of the filter but it was in the way of the 4$ part so I left it out so the part would fit better. Is it needed? I think I just need to get a picture to help represent what I'm trying to describe a little better...
