I have water in my driver side floor. It happens after it rains, or if there's a lot of moisture built up on the car in the morning. I've replaced the windshield, cleaned out the AC evaporator hose, checked the sunroof. Also, you cannot see water coming in anywhere when you sit in the car while it's raining or at the car wash. I've pulled the carpet back and kept it folded while it rained, and when we did this, there was no water anywhere. What else could it possibly be?

Also, it is pure water, no coolant is leaking and the car does not overheat.

Are there any leaves or other things built up under the cowl at the base of the windshield?

I don't think so. We've cleaned out the AC evaporator area and like I said, they removed and installed a new windshield. I'll check tonight when I get home.

There weren't any leaves or anything stuck anywhere. I'm starting to think that it's the seal around the driver door. We found what looks like a path the water has been taking around the seals, which are very dry and pitted in places. That could be why we can't find water coming in anywhere, it's traveling around the door jamb and coming in under the plastic piece at the bottom of the door that covers the edge of the carpet.
