hey guys, i have a leak in my car......it tends to be ONLY on the driver side.....i think its coming from the front sumwhere because it starts off wet under my feet, but the back stays dry, then later on the back gets wet.....i dont think its the weather stripping because i replaced it with my old 318 one which NEVER leaked at all.......PLEASE HELP!!!!!!

Sounds like you have holes in your floor. I'm getting my car checked out (repaied if needed) before I sell it.

I would suggest getting it checked out ASAP before it gets really bad.

Did you look under the little cover? It should be under where your dead pedal is located.

There is a black plastic drain in the engine bay above the manifold beside the valve cover.. Pull it off and clean it out..

If that doesn't fix it you have a hole in the engine bay or firewall or floor.. Or have a leaky window seal... Also your sunroof drains could be blocked..:confused:
