DERP. I totally passed over that most important part of the OP....

Me = dumbarse apparently. LOL because now I re-check the original post and boom there it is, plain as day.....DRIVER SIDE. My bad.


I have never had an issue with water leaking into the driver side floor aside from something outside. Definitely sounds like a leaking seal somewhere.

Check your door seals! This morning I found ICE on BOTH sides of the seal. Took the seal off and put some black silicone inside it. Hopefully no more leak!

Go inside the vehicle and have someone run the hose over the driver's side roof. Water will find the path of least resistance and you will surely see it coming in from somewhere. It could be the doorseal up top is not all the way seated on the body seam. I just went around mine and tapped them all into position.

The seal at the the top of the door weather strip is what I call it is hanging off every time I get in and shut the door I always have to push it back up into place so cold air doesn't come in

I too have been chasing a wet floor on the drivers side, and can not find what is causing it. I've been thinking about adding a drain plug like what the Wranglers have.

That's right where I found a bit of ice in mine. Not as much as yours. I think the ice and snow was blocking, or holding the seal open. Once I removed the ice, no more problem.

Mine would leak in all four door because the door weather stripping had shrunk so there would be a gap in the corner of all the doors. So i took the weather striping off and re glued it back up there with silicone. I now have a 1in gap at the bottom of my door but not at the top but it doesnt leak any more

See that's how my weather stripping is too with all my doors. But the the only thing coming in is cold air cause the floors aren't wet just the driver side is and when I sprayed it with the hose I didn't see any water coming in from the weather stripping

I'm going to try this on my drivers side (once it warms up) to see if it helps. I'm constantly having to push the seal back up into place, so I guess water could be coming in there.

You might also look at you seal coming from you door to the body that encloses the wires if you had to fix those wires at one point and didnt properly put the seal on right it could leak. Also if you have a sun roof make sure its properly close to where it adjusts its self when it closes. I did that one left my sunroof up just a hair to where it didnt adjust itself and it leaked
