Wateron floor/ in rear footwell..

Recently discovered water/puddle in my 97 STS. I used a towel to soak it up but it returned after a recent rain. (On floor behind drivers seat) Are there drains that could be clogged or could it be rear door weather stripping? Any suggestion would be appreciated.

Thanks. I didn't consider the sun roof.

Here is what I have found in an earlier post:

"..there is a drain in each of the 4 corners of the sunroof that runs down the respective pillar. One is likely plugged. Use a length of .080 dia. weed wacker cord to rod it out."

Thanks for the tip. I'll give it a try and wait for the next rain.

Why not spray the sunroof with water from a garden hose to test the drains. You should see four puddles under the car near the tires when the sunroof drains are working properly.

Is the water just on the floor or is it also on the side by the door?

If the door seal is bad it's also possible for water to bypass the seal and soak the carpet. At least this is my experience with the right front door of a '94 Eldorado.

I looked for the drains at the sunroof but only could see screws all around. Any ideas?

Open the sunroof - there should be a drain in each corner of the gutter.

Do not use compressed air to attempt to clean the drains

The water puddles only on the floor, the side carpet is dry.
