You might be having a small hole on the rear fenders. So the water gets splashed by the there and the water soaked the carpet due to the small hole.

This could be a leaking/broken trunk rubber seal /there are body joints that have a seam sealer that could be leaking / the rear windshield sealer and rubber gasket//the door seals on 1 or both sides depending on where the water is /it can be the window runner seals move the doors back and forth to hear water sloshing around in the door if so then it's leaking in through the bottom of the door//check the floor pan under the car it could be rotted out and water from puddles is coming in /the opera window seals/gasket can be leaking back by the deck lid carpet where your speakers are you must really look around here to pinpoint where it's coming from but I gave you all the places to look the body seams in the trunk by the rear window are famous for this from accidents and to much gap was left and the seam sealer cracked open

Look underneath the outside of the car, directly under the rear passenger floor board should be a fairly large rubber plug. Make sure that is still securely in place and not damaged.  If the plug appears to be ok, your next area of suspicion would be the weatherstriping around the door. Check for any damage to the black rubber weatherstriping. And last option, Heater Core could be leaking and in need of replacement. Good Luck!

SOURCE: 2004 Lincoln Town Car Rear passenger side wet carpet

I had the same problem in my Lincoln Town Car about a year or so ago. Here is what the problem was. There are a couple of air ducts at the back of your hood (top of firewall just below the base of your windshield wipers anchor points) These ducts are located one on the driver and one on the passenger side. Each of them has a little gate at the opening. The gates on my car were clogged with leaves and debris, thus causing water to flow over the ducts into the passenger compartment of the car. These ducts must be cleaned out so the water can flow through them and down to the ground instead of overflowing due to clogging.

SOURCE: passenger side carpet wet after it rains in a 2003

check the bulkhead area under the wipers. the scuttle panel has a drain hole & tube that ducts rain water away but can become blocked by dirt and leaves etc, then the water builds up and flows backwards over the edge and down the back of the dashboard via the bulkhead joints. A knitting needle or welding rod can be used to poke the hole clear then test by pouring a small amount of water through the grille beside the wipers and ensure it runs away and does not sit.

Also check your coolant level, if it is down then the leak may be from the heater matrix inside the car, this is more difficult to fix and needs the dashboard removed in a lot of cars.

The 3rd possibility is a leaking windscreen surround. Silicone would fix that, get the black stuff and put a thin bead around the outer edge of the windscreen rubber and smooth neatly with a wet finger or cloth.

SOURCE: water leading into car between the firewall and

I was getting a drip into the passenger side footwell. It got worse as time went on. I started looking at the coolant hoses from the engine into the firewall which provide heated coolant to the heater core. One of the hoses was cracked at the firewall causing the coolant to leak down into passenger footwell. Rather than continue to deal with smell and flood into cab I simply looped the hose from the engine back to the other input and bypassed the heater core entirely. Now that it's 28F I miss my heat and defrost. So think twice before doing it my way.

After it rains we have noticed that the rear passenger side floor well gets very wet, sometimes standing water. What could cause this?


water leak at the roof ditch moulding, the rear window seal, or the moon roof drains being plugged.

Does it do it without moving the car? Could be water splash in the wheel well through a sealer skip in a seam.

Facing up hill or down hill or both?

Lift up seat cushion and lift carpet and follow water stain path to source.

See if you have a WATER DOCTOR franchise near you. They keep a record of common sources of leaks for their repair techs.
