Hi All,

I’ve done some research via here and YouTube. Is there an obvious fix to water coming in to the footwell (drivers side only). This is definitely rain water related and is an ongoing problem with a soak carpet when it’s wet. Your thoughts /links greatly appreciated.

I've heard of leaks on the passenger side in the 2001 and earlier CR-Vs, usually caused by a problem with the cowl. So that's where I'd look first.

Thanks. I've seen a YouTube video related to that but this is driver side only. Thanks any ways

Mine doesn't have a sunroof so I've never had this problem, but I have seen many issues with sunroof drains causing this. Compressed air usually will free up the blockage.

I answered this in your other duplicate thread--the insulation under the plastic cover at the bottom of the windshield has deteriorated. Remove the plastic, replace the foam insulation strip and install a new strip from the local home improvement store. Cheap! Just be careful--that plastic is brittle at this age!

I've had this problem a couple of times on a 1999 CR-V LX no sunroof. Spent a long time chasing it on forums without finding the answer. Had nothing to do with the water in the air intake on the passenger side. Looked like a five gallon bucket of water was dumped on the driver's side floor.

Each time it was a leak in windshield in the upper corner on the driver's side. Finally found it by removing the trim on the Pillar. Found a drip drip drip in the upper corner, but with the rain in Florida it accumulated. First time was 5 years after the original windshield was replaced due to a large crack.

Got the same leak between 4-5 years later. Got the windshield replaced again under the lifetime warranty from the glass company and leak went away again.

In initial troubleshooting I removed the gray trim on the left side of the dash. You could see the rust from where the water ran down the pillar, down the side of the dash, down to the floor where it flooded the carpet.

The glass company thinks it is something about a seam in that area and expansion of the joint. I'm not sure, but they stood by their guarantee and replaced it twice now after the initial replacement of the cracked original.

Hopefully my experience will help you.
