    That’s definitely one you’ll want to post if you ever figure it out.

    The water must be coming up from under the carpet. Because it certainly is NOT coming from the top down. It's between the metal floor, and base of carpet, then it comes up.

    Don't know if the NBS has the plugs like other cars I've had but I have seen body drain plugs leak.
    Mostly you'd get water up from under when hitting big puddles.
    Had a buddy with a '69 Mustang that the plugs were so bad in that when we hit puddles it would blow the carpet up and soak you!
    It was so bad that anytime we were going to hit a puddle he'd yell...
    DIVE DIVE DIVE!

    I had the same issue and did all the stuff everyone mentioned, and nothing worked. Finally realized it was the rubber grommet at the door that housed all the power mirror and door locks was not seated correctly. [​IMG]

    Yeah, I checked that because there are a few YouTube videos that mention it. I don't get water inside that area where the grommet is. Always dry in there even when carpet under the mat is soaked.

    So..... the stealership is not doing well. They did the sunroof, the antenna, and I still have water under the mat. So it's going back next week.

    Had the same problem with my 03 took off the door panel on driver side and found that the plastic water barrier had Ben opened and sealed up right! Put some silicone on it and no problems since.

    The doors have drains at the bottom that get clogged. I pull the plastic flapper things out so they don’t clog.

    I had the same problem, Even had the "heated seat turns itself on and off" thing. Turned out to be the door seal itself.
