Thanks to all posters, I have a sudden persistent passenger rear footwell leak, like the others. I used a sprinkler to try and determine the origin. My 5 star dealer had no further ideas. (they replaced the top once, are they brain dead?) It continued to leak. My local garage changed my oil and noticed the musty smell, and cleared all the weep holes- several quarts drained. I used an industrial mildewicide (moldstat) diluted, saturating the carpet and pad, drying thoroughly. It is better. I previously owned an 00 Jxi with no problems, I should have kept it.

I also have a 98 convertible... wondering exactly where those holes are located... I found just one place today and it is definitely not a place that could be blown out with an air compressor. I had to use a wet vac to suck about 4 inches of water out of the driver's side front and back floorboard today.

I am reading with great interest about the chrysler water leaks in the Sebring Conv. I had recently purchased a 2005 Sebring conv. and I too have a water problem. when it rains hard, the passanger side door fills with water. when someone opens the door after or even during a hard rain, the water comes gushing out all over their feet. I mean a lot of water. I was told by the dealer this is natural. But it does not happen on the driver side door. Yesterday again we had torrential rains and this morning my grandson open the passanger side door and the water just poured out, he knows now to stand back when opening the door, but it also filled my floor well in the passanger side rear foot area. Any suggestions?

That certainly doesn't seem normal. I wonder if the "squeegee", the rubber flap at the top of the door, as it meets the window, has deteriorated and is letting water in?

Live on the rainy west coast and have four door sedan sebring love car but feel it's becoming a health risk from mold. Every time it rains the car drivers side floor board and carpet is soaked and my passenger spot behind the driver in the back of the car is filling with water also. Driving me crazy any one have a fix and possibly a drawing of where these plugged drains are .
Surely with all the posted notes Chrysler must have a fix. thanks

Live on west coast where it rains every day and when it rains my four door sedan Sebring fills with water on the drivers side and the rear spot behind the drivers seats floods out. I am concerned about health risk due to molds and hate the dampness .
Any one have a quick fix, and drawings showing were the drain plugs under the door are.
Any one starting to get sick and considering class action against Chrysler due to mold bye product of the floor mats being so wet all the time .

I fully agree with you. It is time for Chrysler to step up to the plate and rectify this problem. After seeing all the posts it is past time. I just took mine for service and my mechanic has referred me to a collision body shop. When i first had the problem, it was only 2 weeks into my purchase. When I brought the car back to the dealer he said it was NORMAL??? I have been driving for more that 50 yrs, and have NEVER had this problem in any car.

A bit off topic, but I fought Chrysler on a somewhat similar situation with our Grand Caravan. In my entire driving life, I've never had a major leak at the top of the windshield, but the Grand Caravan's windshield leaked like a sieve at the top seal and/or pinch weld. After several trips to the dealer, and to independent glass shops, it was never fixed. They just reduced the volume of the water leak.

I saw a question about Identifying the drain slits. Can anyone suggest a site?
