Water on drivers side floor board after a rain..

Asked by Jan 10, 2016 at 11:34 PM about the 2000 Honda Accord EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

After it rains I notice a soaked carpet on my
driver's side floor board. While I am in the
car, I do not see the water coming into the
car anywhere. I do have a sunroof and read
something about the drain line from a
sunroof can leak onto the floor board. Do u
think this is the problem? How do I fix it?

The driver side drain tube runs down the inside of the left pillar. You need to remove the pillar trim and the left kick panel to get at it. If you are removing the tube you need to tie a long string to the upper end in the A pillar and then pull it down into the kick panel area of the car. The drain tubes are fastened to the 4 corners of the Moonroof tray and can be accessed from inside and outside the vehicle with the moon roof open. I have detailed instructions on the entire set up but am trying to figure out how to copy them so I can paste them or send them.

I've heard I can unclog them, do u know of how that can be done?

You sometimes can by using a length of something long enough and flexible enough to work through the tubing, but you do have to be careful because you can actually hit the clog or a tubing joint connector and push the sections of tubing apart causing a bigger headache. I really wouldn't suspect a clogged tube, because if it were, then the water would most likely back up in the tubing and then spill inside the car over your head somewhere around the sunroof privacy panel. I would more suspect that the tube has disconnected from the roof drain pan nipple, or has split inside the pillar or kick panel, or that the tubing has multiple parts joined by connector somewhere along the length and has come apart.

I have a 2012 Accord with a sunroof too, but I'm getting water on the PASSENGER floorboard...could it still be the sunroof ?

If the drip tubes from the sunroof drain pan, which run down through the A pillars of the roof, disconnect from the pan nipples or at a connector joint, they can most certainly put water into the passenger compartment and the trunk.
