Water in the floor board..but driver side?

Title says it all. I know about the fix for the passenger side but I've never heard of the driver side flooding. The weather stripping looks find and the door is not wet anywhere, neither is the carpet higher up. Just the floor on the driver side.

Is there a body plug on floor board on that side? You might be missing it or it is not in all the way. I'd check for that first.

wet floor board driver's side

I have exactly same problem. Started last week. It's water for sure. No sign of where it is coming from and no rain or carwash since before it started. Reaccumulates if I try to soak it up.

I have the same problem. Would love help

Last year I had flooding in the passenger side and it ended up being the rain water running off the windshield. the small tiny drain that jeep has was clogged with leaves, so they made the drain bigger and cleaned out the leaves. Problem fix. Year later... now I have water in the floorboard. Not up high like I did last year in the passenger, but right where my feet would rest. Has anyone figured out whats going on?

Sorry to hijack. But could you tell me what drain your talking about and where it is. Pictures would be great too. My passenger side floorboard is always wet and I can't figure out why. I had the a/c drain unclogged but that didn't help. I also cleaned leaves out of under the plastic cowl cover between the hood and windsheild, and caulked the the seam on the firewall.

Check the seal on top of the door frame, right where it meets the hood area. Mine's coming off and I have water on my floor every time it rains. I've got some silicone sitting in my cup holder but im too damn lazy to fix it

if your door rail seals aren't intact or are dry rotted -- they will pour water in around the doors to the floor -- also check to make sure that the hard plastic seals around the windsheild are there -- it will leak there and down the firewall inside...you could also have a disconnected ac Drain from the evap box that will put the AC water in the floor board -- you may not notice it at first until the insulation soaks it up....another thing could be a crack or hole in the heater hose going into the evap box -- have you checked to see if the water was clear or if it was mixed with antifreeze?
