    Hey everyone,
    I used the search feature but didn't come up with much. The problem is that water ends up on the pass side front floor when it rains. It seems to do when you drive it in the rain, but I guess sometimes it does it even if it is just sitting in the rain. I know that this is a common problem, but what is the cause? I believe that the firewall is well sealed, and I guess the windshield is ok as well (but who knows for sure!). So where do I start? I hate dealing with this issue!


    Thank you,
    Zack

    Reseal your raingutters. It worked for me. 3M makes a raingutter sealer. However, I used the 3m all around body caulk.

    Do you have pics of the exact area that I must seal? How does the rain gutter allow water in the truck?


    Thank you,

    Also how does it get under the carpet, and not on the carpet?

    Thank you,

    Mine does the same thing. My theory is that the windshield is leaking. Just a theary though.

    Are the floor boards rusted to where the water can come up through?
