Hey everyone, I got a real mystery on my hands here. I kept noticing after rain storms that there would be a small amount of water on my driver's side floormat. After poking around a bit I figured out that the water was dripping from over by the right side kick-plate (not really sure that's what it's called, but I have a picture below). That's where I can get eyes on the drips, but they're coming from higher up, like maybe a-pilar or something.
Once I figured out that's where the water was coming from, my first thought was the windshield. I took a hose and flooded the windshield seal for quite a while and it didn't leak. I then noticed that where the windshield and wiper areas drain, basically dumps water right where the door hinges mount to the body. I was thinking maybe some of those bolts were the culprit, so I took the hose to those as well...still nothing.
After these attempts, my attention turned to the factory sunroof. I flooded the entire sunroof with the hose and got a bit of new leaking. I was thinking it must be that front drain on the driver's side, so I took a large garden sprayer and directed water right at that drain. Interestingly enough, when I target just the drain it doesn't seem to be an issue, but again, if I flood the entire driver's side of the sunroof with the hose I get the drips. Hopefully, that makes sense, not sure I did the best job explaining.
Anyone got any ideas?
Another question I have is if the sunroof looks like it's sitting correctly. The back edge of the glass sits about 4-5mm lower than the roof of the truck. Maybe that's just how it needs to be in order for it to put enough down pressure on the seal when it's latched?

Seems possible. I have an odd issue in my old 2003 Galant where the mat gets wet. I’m finding it could be from having the A/C on and a long trip somehow the drippings are getting inside the vehicle. The car stays dry inside every other time even in hard rain etc.
