During a good hard rain, the passenger footwell gets really soaked. It seems to be coming from behind the door trim panel at the bottom. It's also worth noting that my dew wipes are dust. I want to find this problem and fix it before my floor pan turns into Swiss cheese.

Does it get wet when you are parked or only when you are driving?

Do you have a sunroof?

Ha ha! No, I do have a sunroof. My middle initial is T and my last name is Roof.

I have no idea where your leak is occurring, but I suspect that lack of functional dew wipes has nothing to do with it. I've cut the hard cracked rubber off the dew wipes on two of my Fieros (to prevent the glass from getting scratched). Rain water certainly gets into the doors, but it just drains out the bottom and eventually makes it to the ground.
