Passenger side rear floor board soaked?

Hey all,
I've got an 02 convertable mustang and my passenger side rear floor is soaked? Everything else is dry. Nothing on the sides or near the rocker panels.
Thought maybe my daughter spilt something but it's been like that for a while.
Cause of rain? Don't have a clue but it's that one spot and haven't seen any water off the ragtop or anywere else.
Any ideas?
I'd appreciate any help thx...

my 04 vert does the same thing, thought maybe it was a small hole in the lining near the window but patched that up and still water in the back passenger floor.

Re: Passenger side rear floor board soaked?

Look under the car where the rear floorboard is and you should see a drain plug type hole. There should be a plug there but sometimes they come out and that will cause your floor to get wet when you drive on wet roads. Thats the only thing I can think of that would be doing that.

Re: Passenger side rear floor board soaked?

Had the same problem with my 03 convert. Searched internet websites and found may have the same problem. I followed a suggestion and drilled a 1/4" hole in the body pan frame rail just below the side scoop trim. Supposedly the water enters around the rear side window and eventually collects in the pan frame rail and leaks in where the floor pan joins the door sill. i didn't notice it being wet by the door sill but since i drilled the holes i has been thru a rain storm and stayed dry. Good luck

Re: Passenger side rear floor board soaked?

So far this is what i've been able to come up with, since we just got six inches of snow last night, no garage to work in and it's winter up here eh?

there is a design drain hole in the frame rails just ahead of the the rear wheels. When the water drains out of that hole, it will back up into the frame rails under the door. It would then leak through a seam where the floor pans join the frame rail (under the door).

What worked for me was to throughly reseal the entire seam.

Now i read this on a link somewhere and i'm hoping this will work.
Kingkong 707 if you get this done before i do which i'm sure you probably will.
Let me know how you made out.
Good Luck bro.
B.t.w. I've read a few links where people have been drilling holes.
I'm not into that. If it worked fine before there's gotta be a way to fix it...
