Water leak in cab

Hey guys, i have a water leak somewhere in my passanger floor. Im pretty sure its coming from underneath beacuse the carpet is soaked underneath the floormat. It dosent look like its running down the fire wall, also underneath the plastic doorjamb trim piece was filled with water. I was thinking of getting flex seal and spraying the passanger side floor, but id like to see what you guys have to say.

I'd take a close look at the lower corners of where the Windshield is on both sides. It's not an uncommon area for leaks. You can take some Talc and "puff" it up there, then keep an eye on it for signs that the first signs of the origin of a leak...

I've read a post similar to this a few months back that someone else had this problem and if I remember right it was from the air blower assembly that traps water some how and ends up leaking since there is no drain on it and they drill a hole at the bottom of it somewhere under the hood. Do a search in the forums and I'm sure you could find it. My does it but it's from my sunroof leaking the pillar.

This happens in the Summer though.... The "water some how" being there is actually condensate from the AC Evaporator and not likely to be the cause today

You Do want to be sure it's water, coolant can leak from there if the Heater Core is leaking.

I pulled the carpet up and there were a few seams and stuff butt no major signs, im spraying everything with flex seal real good and seeing if that helps, theres no signs of the water coming from above.

Well after further inspection i removed the pillar trim piece and noticed water where the windshield meets the cab, i then noticed on the outside that the window trim was not overlapping the door trim like on the drivers side, so i fixed the trim all up, put some silicone on some gaps, and now i still have the trim on the inside removed to see if i can get a better look at it when it rains(suppose to in the next few days).

This wouldn't work for mine when it was leaking.

Call a windshield repair company and tell them you need your windshield resealed due to a leak. It's most likely the top right side of your windshield leaking. It's a very common issue and an easy fix. I paid $65
