Hi, I tried looking on the other threads but couldn't find my problem.
I have an 02 ba futura and when it rains water comes in from somewhere on the drivers side. Only the floor mats are dry, it comes in from underneath somehow and soaks through the foam and carpet.
If anyone else has/had this problem and knows how to fix it please help as I can't figure out where the water is coming from. Last time this happened I dried it all and then hosed everywhere I could reach and no water got in.

Front or rear?

If its the rear, open your boot and there is a seal/plug thing that all the wiring comes through near the hinge. Water comes through here, down through the back and into the rear carpets.

just had a look, all the seals seem to be fine, the water seems like it coming from underneath the car the floor mats were dry and the carpet was fairly dry but underneath the the carpet was a pool of water, the water was a dirty green sot of colour and it looked like it was wettest at near the centre console and my water level had gone down from max to min could it be that? are there any pipes going near there that could be leaking?
