Door sill removal

How do I remove the door sills? My carpet is getting real wet after it rains and I wanted to pull out the passenger side interior to get a better idea of where the leak might be coming from.

Thanks

are u referring to the plastic part? if so, under dash above carpet is a tab thingy pullit w/needlenose they are 1" long. pull out that piece & all the others along floor will follow, be gentle, tabs can get a bit stuck from being wet & it sucks if one breaks cuz then u have a tiny buldge. i can link pics more then likely

hope that helps

Regarding your leak. I had the same problem on my pass side. discovered that the heater plenum was filling up with water and leaking through the air door. I COULD NOT locate how the water was getting in the plenum box. Finally solved the problem by removing the inner fender liner and drilling a hole in the bottom of the box. Water still gets into the box, but now it drains and stays out of the interior.

The leak for me is definitely higher up. I have some dripping coming from the grid handle on the passenger side grip handle. I don't see any water anywhere else except that the carpet is soaked. I'm guessing its going down the a-pillar to the carpet.
