MX-5 wet carpets on driver side
Posted 13 January 2011 - 09:33 AM
My wife drives a 2001 MX-5 soft top which is used quite frequently. Lately, we have noticed that the carpet on the drive side of the car gets wet typically after rain. Up in Sydney, we have been getting more than usual rain fall. I have checked the interior of the car, to determine if the water was coming through the windows or through the roof but the car is always dry every else except for the carpet on the drivers side. I do not know where the water is coming from. The carpet is soaked right through and I had to use a wet vacuum to remove the water from the driver side of the car. I removed approximately 1 litre of water. Water does not appear to have any unusual odour and might be rain water. Can someone please help me determine the cause of the problem?

I'd say probably the water drainage channels for the roof are blocked. Get under the car to unblock them with a cut lengthened coat hanger maybe.
