A day after our first heavy rain, I noticed the front floor mats were soaked in my 2008 Honda Pilot. The drivers side more so. I checked the entire inside and no other water noticed...doors, windows, windshield, dashboard. I vacuumed up all that I could, then toweled it as dry as I could. Car was parked in garage. Next day, pulled it out of the garage (still pretty dry) , still raining and within a few hours I checked it and they were wet again.

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd HI Gayle, One of the easiest ways to figure out where the water is leaking in at is to have someone sit inside the car, and have someone else spray down the car with a garden hose. You should be able to see where it is leaking in at. Then you will know whether you should be taking it in for repairs to a windshield repair shop, body shop or repair shop. Good Luck!

Helaine Kurot, Owner/Technician at 360 Automotive Easiest way to find the leak is to sit inside the car while someone sprays it with a hose. This should help isolate the area it is coming from. It could also be a clogged drain tube in the A-pillar (driver side panel along the windshield-should run all the way down the side.
