My 2008 Ford Escape AWD floor matts keep getting soaked. I thought I had fixed it by making sure the sunroof was closed properly, but it has continued. I have tried to figure out where this is coming from and finally after drying them out again I laid under the the vehicle and both on the drivers side in the middle of the front floor area and the passanger side there is a small hole about the size of a dine right in the middle. That would account for the water coming in after rain storms and such, but why would these two holes be there? Was there a drain area there with plugs and they are missing? Can I have a piece of metal welded over them? Don't know why they would be there. Doesn't seem to be a rust issue as it is frim all around these small holes.
Water leak on floors from underneath. There is a small hole size of a dime on both drivers side and passanger side underneath floor matts right in the middle of each. Can I have this repaired with a small plate welded underneath. Why were they there in the first place? Were there drains there?
You guys are worthless
Jackercise, did you ever get an answer?? I am having a problem with water in my driver's floorboard and started looking online. Do you have a sunroof? If so, those might be the drainage holes from the drain lines for the sunroof. Hope you already figured this all out and have fixed your problem.!
Sounds like heater core has a hole in it. That's the only time I ever had water on my floor boards. Because my heater core had a small hole and it dripped down onto my floorboard.
