Damp/Wet Under Floor Mat?

Hi Folks!

I have a '05 Ford 4x4 SMB that I've noticed some dampness / wet underneath the driver's side floor mat.

I just had an oil change, and had the dealer blow out / clean the AC condensate tubes - and noticed after this weekend, that I still had a bit of dampness again.

This unit is equipped with a StarCool - and I'm sure when he was doing his testing he was using the factory dash air only -

Is there any 'aftermarket SMB stuff' in or around the driver's cockpit that could be leaking or condensating (any Starcool stuff?) ?

It's not the windshield leaking (tested that) ...

Any suggestions or previous experiences shared would be great!

Thanks in advance

Joe

Agreed, generally windshield leak.. How did you rule that out?

I have also been chasing the same leak. On the drivers side it was coming through a seam on the wheel liner and body. Pulled the panel off the hood release latch and the carpet back and it was from there. IDK where it came from but somewhere on the drain path it was coming across that seam and leaking. I seam sealed it and so far its okay.

The passenger side, seam sealer was loose and not in the correct spot on the firewall. Basically followed the dog box up and over an inch or so to the firewall and it was that seam. Sealed that and so far so good.

X-3. I'm having my windshield replaced and am expecting some rust.

I had a similar experience as this on my drivers side. I put some jb weld on the seam under the carpet and I don't get the puddle I used to. My van was really dusty so I would have been able to see the water track, but there was none. So I just took a wild stab at it and it appears to have fixed my leak.
