VXII S-Pack commodore
I need some help with a non-commodore related question, my sis has a Mitsubishi Lancer, and after all the rain that they have had in Qld lately the car has been filling with water. It's only happening on the right hand side of the car (ie: drivers floor and behind driver seat passenger floor) and I've checked the door seals and pulled up the carpet to check the bottom, but to no luck.
Does anyone here have ANY IDEA as to where all the water is coming from? Cause it's absolutely saturated and I'm worried about the fabric and carpet going mouldy, not to mention it smells as musty as hell.
Thanks :bang:

Could be coming through the air-vents for the air con/heater system. Make sure the bit that the water runs down isnt blocked. Its the bit under the bonnet right up near the firewall, if that makes sense :p

Go through a car wash and see if it comes in then.

My son bought a new Mitsubishi Mirage (similiar vehicle) a few years back, shortly after getting it he was getting wet carpets, at first they said must be a window seal or he had not put the window up fully, they replaced the carpet under warranty and a few weeks later carpet was soaked again.
In the end it turned out to be a section on the firewall down the back of the motor where 2 panels joined had not had enough body sealer placed between the joints, they had to remove the complete dash assembly and reseal the panel, water was running down the windscreen and back off the bonnet then running down the firewall and into the cabin, once it was fixed the carpets never got wet again.
