All, just getting back to you about the leak problem.
I tried your suggested method and didn't find any bubbles around any areas that the water could be leaking into.
I lifted the car and looked at all the seams to see if there could be anything leaking in there. Anyplace that looked like a possibility I put sealed up with silicon. I used a fan to dry the carpet completely to see if it would get wet again. After the next snow storm it was just as wet as ever.
After try 2 didn't work, I ended up taking up the floor siding panels, the foot rest and then took up the carpet. The carpet is still quite wet. There is a body plug under the carpet, which I put silicon on and replaced and a plug just above the foot rest, which I siliconed and replaced. I can't see any signs of where the water could be leaking in cracks.
I did find some sort of what looks like an air duct that comes from the driver side of the shift console and ends up sitting flat on the floor and continues under the driver seat. There is some residual water that is under it - I'm not sure if this just a convenient place to sit or if this could be where the leak is coming from?
Do you know what this black duct is? Could it be causing the leaking of water/condensation? How would I test this?
Any other ideas?
