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.

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

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?
