Hi, I have the same problem with my '92 Grand Am, wet floor on the passenger side in the front and in the back. It's water because it happens only when it rains. I was actually able to eliminate the problem in the front by running a bead of black silicone sealant along the bottom of the windshield where the glass meets the weatherstripping (on the outside). I tried the same thing on the rear window, but that didn't solve the problem. So now I have a wet floor on the passenger side in the back, but not in the front. Rainwater is getting in somehow, I just have to find out where it's coming in. I'm guessing the weatherstripping on the door, or maybe the trunk. I'll try to post something if I actually fix it.

Thanks for the info. I took the carpet out on the passenger side and caulked with silicone everywhere I could reach. Under the hood I was able to do the top of the heater fan but HOW do I get to the lip on the underside???? The carpet on the drivers side is soaked also, will this fix help that side? I already used clear silicone sealant on the lower edge of the windshield and used foam weatherstripping on the doors and trunk. No more leak in the trunk. Also have electrical problems, no tailights, new bulbs, where is the relay switch that I keep hearing about??

I have a 94 grand am and I had wet floor in the front both sides. I used silicone around windshield and on a few places on weatherstripping where all 4 doors meet roof. No more leak on passenger side but drivers side still soaked (after rain) so now I'm going to pull back the carpet like nopropmtb did. No other way to be sure where its coming from, I'll relate what I find. Had a little water in trunk (weatherstipping in rough shape) but I just drilled a hole in lowest point in tire well to drain for now.
#19 of 81 wet under passenger seat & in back floorboard
Jan 22, 2007 (6:03 pm)
Hi, I have a 2003 Grand Am and just noticed tonight that there's water standing under the passenger seat and in the back floorboard on the passenger side. I felt everywhere and can't find anything else in the car that is even the least bit damp. I've read all the posts here but they all pertain more to the front floorboard. Anyone have any ideas? I live in Illinois and we did get snow this weekend. Thanks, in advance, for any help or clues that you guys may have.

I have a 1999 Grand Am and this is the third year I have taken it to the body shop to have leaks repaired. The first leak was in the trunk and said to be the tail light seal. The second leak was inside the car itself with the front driver and passenger areas deep in water. That was said to be the rear windo seal. I am going to pick up the car today for the third water leak. This time it is said to be a pressure vent somewhere on the back of the car. The bumper had to be removed to get to it. If this car leaks again, I am going to throw a tarp over it and give up.

tell me about it! I'm about to give my POS 95 Grand Am to a Demolition Derby LOL . I have taken it to mechanics regarding the driver side floor leak and they keep doing differnet things to it like fixing the cowling and sealing different spots... and the bloody thing keeps on leaking!!! I've pretty much had it with the beater. As soon as my husband moves over from England we are getting something new and demo derby or junk yarding this POS .
