It's been raining hard here lately which doesn't happen often in Socal. I went into my car this morning and there were two pools of water where your heels dig into the mat.

The firewall area is dry. And the area beneath the mat is mostly dry. I have a hole in my mat so the spot below that hole was wet. I reached around to where the fuses are and just all around the plastic trim areas and it is a little wet. It appears to be a slow drip since I don't feel my feet getting wet while driving. Its on the gas pedal side and clutch.

The last pic ( which was hard to get not blurry), that little canal is where the drip is coming from. So not sure how water is getting to that area or where I need to look.

Anyone else ever experience this?

Here's another photo of the wiring under the fuses. You can see a water droplet about to fall in the middle near that blue and white wire. I can't seem to find a trail of water though. My hope is that the windshield cowl is clogged and it just needs a good cleaning. I did see a bunch of debris in the little pockets surrounding the wiper blades mounting points. I cleaned those out for now.

I was having water intrusion from between the the top of my windscreen above the drivers visor the and the roof line, not sure where it was coming from.

It wasn't that bad, would notice it on the seat as it was soaked in that area and would drip on my leg.

No, wouldn't effect the harness and get on the dash like that, you see or feel more dampness on the right side of the gas pedal.

Sunroof? Clogged drains? Leak from windshield... just put a new windshield in mine, merely to see what was behind the top edges as mine was leaking... rust. New window, no more leaks. Clogged drains from sunroof can also leak like yours.

I think it's coming from the a pillar or somewhere around the windshield on the left side channel or in between both.

I pulled off the A pillar cover and ran my finger all along the windshield seal and didn't feel anything wet. It might've dried by the time I checked though. I'm going to try and investigate more tomorrow since it won't be raining.

Finally got around to taking the cowl off (which was a pain). No debris build up whatsoever. I was hoping there was. My only guess for the cause is the windshield seal.

When my car was parked slightly under an awning so that only the hood and front windshield were covered, I barely had a leak when it rained again compared to when my car was fully out in the rain. This leads me to believe its coming from the front.
