Last weekend, I noticed that there was water behind and under my pasenger seat, seeping forward. There were water bottles back there, so I thought one must have leaked and cleared them out and dried out the mess. Whenever I was in the car and it was not raining I opened the windows to try to dry out the mustiness.
Fast forward to this weekend. Lo and behold there is a puddle of water behind my passener seat again. It has been raining all week and I have been religious about keeping the windows closed. There is no sloshing in the doors. No apparent holes in the roof. Where could this water be coming from? Is there a way to figure out if there is a hole in the undercarriage without getting under there?
We are expecting more rain this week and I fully plan to check everyday now that I know this was not just an issue with a stray water bottle!
