WATER ON THE FLOOR BOARD

I'm hearing water sloshing around when I apply the brakes or turn a corner. The car was out in the rain the other night and when I moved it the next day the water actually sloshed its way onto the front floor.

It's not the air conditioner, it's not hooked up.

Thanks for any ideas,
Sue

There are drain plugs under the car in the rear for the rear quarters. Remove them and let it drain.

There are metal plugs under the car in various spots. Do the same by draining.

Then you need to find the leak and repair it. Mold will form under the carpets so make sure you remove everything and dry it up the best you can

Thanks Roy! Do you have any thoughts on where the leak may be? Where would you start looking?

Rear window seal is most common. Open the trunk and look for signs of leaking into the trunk well.
