can water condensation leak into rear footwell under carpet


Asked by Dec 28, 2014 at 11:16 AM about the 2006 Lexus GS 300 AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Have read different opinions as to how water can accumulate under carpet in rear foot well.  Some say from blocked drain tubes linked to sunroof, others say it could be from the air conditioner

2 Answers


There are also hole plugs in the underbody but I wouldn't really suspect those. Possibly from a hole plug under the rocker? Has the car been involved in a side impact?


Thanks for sharing advice Mark. No the car has never been in an accident. I have blown compressed air down the sun roof channels thinking their might be debris obstructing water drainage. I will know in a few days if it solves the problem. Gerry
