I have searched & searched and have read many , many threads and they all have something in common in terms of water. You either have water in the front driver or passenger compartment, wet roof liner, or a wet rear cargo area.

You either have: 1. Front Windshield leak
2. Sunroof leak
3. Rocker Drains clogged:idea:
4. Rear Window leaks

Here is what I have :

Water pooling up near the A-piler between the passenger front and rear seats with the water pooling in the rear passenger area near the door (due to parking on a slight incline on that side). Here is my question as stupid as it may seem. I have the LX450 with the plastic cladding over the rocker area. Do I need to remove this in order to check the drain slits ? I looked up under the truck and could not see anything that looked like drain slits or plugs.?. I am going to tackle this tonight with :beer:

Any help. thanks

They are relatively small slits that are in the pinch weld underneath the rocker. There was a good picture of someone that flooded his 80 and it showed them draining. I'll see if I can find that recent post. The LX cladding will not be in the way.

Get on the ground on your back with a plastic wire tie. Probe into the pinch weld slits, then enjoy a muddy water shower.

Found the pic....

muuuuuud
there is plugs under there you probably have to remove the plastic but there should be rubber gromets that cover the hole just pop them out with a flat head screw driver, if there still in there. good luck.

Sounds like a windshield seal leak, exactly like mine.
