Where's the water coming from ?

I have a 95 P71 and i get a little puddle of water in the passenger side floor board every time it rains for more than a half hour, i dont get water in the car when i wash it, Im guessing its not a big hole. ive already RTV'd up one hole where the department had run wires, and the other holes in the fire wall seem to be intact, I'll try to get some pictures of the area up tomorrow well i guess later today :)

I know this sounds stupid, but did you check all the weather stripping along the door frame and window frame. Also check the seals around the windshield.

When you have some extra time, sit in the car when it is raining and see if you can see it dripping or rolling down to the floor from somewhere... :s3

Yea i think thats what its going to come down to, me sitting in my car waiting for it to leak :)

All the seals are fine to my knowledge, the car is like brand new. Other than the obvious leaking problem

There is a drain tube for that area under the screen in front of the windshield. You know where your heater fan gets it's air from. Sorry, I don't know what it is called.Maybe you just got some leaves in it. Try blowing this area clean with compressed air Anyways, if that tube is plugged it could cause water to run into the heater/air conditoner box and drip into the car. I do not know it's exact location on your car. It is somewhere on the passenger side under the car by the firewall. .I do not know why it would not do the same thing when you wash the car. Maybe your not getting as much water in this area when you wash it.
