From what i've read here and personal experience a wet passenger floor is pretty common. It usually comes from a plugged AC condensate drain. It is tricky to fix. There is another thread in the forum that has a detailed discussion of the problem.

Wet Driver's Floo

I too get a wet drivers side (front seat) floor. Only seems to happen after one hell of a storm. Carpet behind pedals not wet. Water is under rubber floor mat. My jeep has been in front end crash. Was repaired at "pro body shop" Cant tell where water comes from.

I have this same problem. I can't find the problem but it sure is a lot of water.. Understand this has nothing to do with the passenger side.

One of the leaks on one of my previous Grands was just this. Took a long piece of string trimmer line and fed it through the drain holes in the sunroof channel, sliding it back and forth, to break up a clogged drain tube where it ran behind the kick panel.

Where are the drain tubes located so I can take and clear them out?

This is happening to me too.

The two front drain tubes are the easiest to get to. Open the sunroof and there is one at either side of the front. I cut off about an 8' length of string trimmer line and used it as a drain snake. Followed it with some warm water and watched the water pour out. Worked like a champ.
