    last week with all that rain, i found that my floor in the back seat and under my drivers seat, was soaked.

    so i tried to dry it the best way i could. got some towels, damp rid, heat, vacuum'd some of it out and then it got moldy cause i couldnt get it all.

    couldnt figure out what caused it. no bad seals around the doors. windows were all up. i was dumbfounded.

    so yesterday we got a lot of rain(and will continue the rest of the week). i dropped a friend off at work, and realized that not only was the back seats floor wet, but the front as well. but this time it was the passenger side, and the drivers side was bone dry.

    i vacuum'd it all out, put more damp rid, sprayed some lysol.

    only thing i can think of is the plugs under the body rotted and nw there is just water flowing in from the rain being kicked up.

    anyone else have this problem?

    sounds like an island car :)

    if you can find the holes you might want to try some of that roll-on bedliner stuff - it's not pretty but it stops rust and water, etc.

    What kind of car is it, and how old, etc?

    You could also get water in through the cowl vent in front of the windshield, or somewhere around there and the firewall.
