2000 Eclipse GT floorboard/carpet wet behind drivers seat only (L rear passenger)
HELP !! (54,000 miles) This just started happening about a week ago. Carpet
behind the drivers seat is SOAKED. The sunroof isn't leaking (headliner
spotless), the 2 drains in the hatchback (L&R) rain channels are clear and
functional, window/door seals are tight with no leaks, windows close fully.
Car is garage kept. The floor is wet even after a week of dry weather. I'm
at a loss as to origin of this puddle. No other floorboards/carpets are wet
anywhere or even damp so no trail to follow. No smell or residue when I
touch it. Feels/smells like straight water. All carpets are bone dry except
the left rear. How da' hell is the water getting to the drivers side
backseat with no obvious source or trail to backtrack. Anyone else ever run
into this problem?? I'd REALLY hate to have to take it to the dealer to
locate the source but as a last resort....VERY last resort, I will. As
painful as it will be. Any ideas will be appreciated!
