Question about 2006 Saturn Vue

1 Answer

2006 Saturn view gets wet inside when it rains, which causes it to smell AWFUL!! I haven't actually seen water in the floor boards but it smells moldy and musty when it rains. EVERY TIME it rains this happens. I can't figure it out. So I guess water is getting in the car somehow. PLEASE HELP, I son't kmow what to do.

SOURCE: Water on Drivers side Saturn SC2

Is it antifreeeze from heater core or heater core hose leak?  Is the leak pure water, or maybe something else?
Put it in the garage again overnight with an old white towel in the drivers foot well, best if you can find a way to stretch it from drivers seat forwar to firewall and keep it off of floor mat.  Check it before you go to bed,  then in the morning if no leak found yet.  see if the color/location of the spot helps you identify the source.  I think the heater core is under the dash center.  Anti freeze is green/yellow or orange.
good luck

SOURCE: leaks by feet

1st the sunroof leak- there is some type of channel/drain to direct water out of the sunroof area. Open the sunroof and look around the outer inside area for evidence of junk blocking the channel/drain, such as leaves, dirt, pine needles, etc. and clean out with a vacuum and toothpicks (to dislodge). If you can find a drain tube in a channel (it should direct water to the underside of the car), the easiest way to clear it is with compressed air.
2nd Since this is much worse since the windshield was replaced, I am thinking that it was not installed and sealed properly. So, first try to clean the channels and any drain tube(s). Next, with a hose, spray the windshield only, not the sunroof, and see if it leaks at your feet in the front seating area. If it does, the windshield install is to blame for the leak there.

How to stop water from coming in the passenger floor board

That depends upon the cause of the water. There are a few possibilities, depending upon the vehicle. See this list and use what applies as a way to narrow down the source.

1. Rust hole in floorboard. Only way to fix is to repair hole.
2. Leaking door seal on passenger side. Locate and repair leaking seal.
3. Leaking sun/moon roof. Some vehicles that have these run their drain lines down the passenger side door pillar and down thru the floor pan. Sometimes the hose shrinks with age or breaks and allow water to get on to the floor. Remove the passenger side kick panel and inspect and repair as needed.
4. Leaking heater core. Feel and smell the water. If it smells like antifreeze or has an oily feel, it may be coolant leaking from the heater core. Of course there should be a loss of coolant associated with this problem. Here the only solution is to bypass or replace the heater core.
5. Leaking windshield seal. Most car windshields today are glued into place. These glue joints can break loose and allow water to leak. Also, rust can form around the windshield seal and cause rust holes that can leak. Lastly, extremely high-powered car stereo systems that pump mega-bass can cause overpressure inside the vehicle that can cause the seal of the glass to separate.

My 2003 Saturn Ion driverside floor board stay soaking wet

Hi Linda , you mite have a windshield leak ! You could possibly look under the dash an see if there is a water stain coming down the metal body inside ! If it were the passenger side I'd say you had a heater core leak .You don't have any unusual odors do you ? Like anti freeze ? Or does the windshield fog up when on defroster ?

Hyundai Getz leaks near pedals when raining

My Getz is also having similar problem. I have thrice got water test done from Hyundai server center. After 2nd test they put some sealants underbody and return the car, but still water was leaking in. 3rd time water test, hyundai said its all fine, no problem but still problem persists. It happens when it rains only, so I dont suspect air-con filters or radiator problems. Water pool is created in driver side footwell only. During heavy rain, I tried to troubleshoot but couldnt find any fault point from where water might be leaking inside. Its second year, I have running into this problem, creating stinking smell inside the car due to wet mats. Looks like I need to do away with my car.

The rear floor board carpet is wet on my 2005 325I and I cannot find a window, door or sunroof leak. Any ideas?

Well sounds like your experiencing a heater core leak but you did not mention that you smell coolant inside the car if you do this is your problem if not read below.
These cars sometimes hit things in the road. Which rips holes in the floor boards of the auto or knock out small plugs that are used to remove moisture. Some are metal some are steel. But in most cases it is the sunroof there is a vent which drains out down the wall to the outside which is a rubber hose this may be off or plugged up which often happens. Rain has no where to go but follow the hose to the floor and then deposit its wetness into the carpet. remove the headliner to view the problem. If you need any further assistance please ask for me. don't forget to rank my solution thanks

I am guessing that you recently had a windshield replaced. If so they didn't seal it well and it leaks in there. You can go to a glass shop and have it re-sealed or you can buy sealer at most automotive stores and do it yourself.

The other option is that it is leaking in through the air intake between your hood and the windshield. That is the air intake for your heating and air conditioning. There are drains in the line that can get clogged up. If that is the case the best option is to take it to a repair shop.
