If you notice water building up in the footwell of your car, you’ll have to repair the source of the leak before other components of your car’s interior get damaged.

It’s unsettling to find out that water is leaking into your car.
Water can cause corrosion of pin connectors, module failures, sensor failures, rust accumulation, bad smells, and high humidity inside the car.
Rather than taking your car to a dealer, find the source of the leak yourself and determine what the least expensive option would be to repair it.
This easy job takes one to three hours and costs from $8 to $20 dollars. A professional may charge from $120 to $200 dollars.
For this job, you’ll need a garden hose, towels, foaming window cleaner, a can of compressed air, weatherstrip seal, and body trim adhesive.
Step One – Check the weatherstripping
The weatherstrip adhesive around the door frame can develop leaks over time. To confirm that this is the cause of the leak, spray foaming window cleaner along the outside edges and use an air nozzle to blow air from the inside. If there is a leak, bubbles should form where the air blows through. The leak may come from the top, sides, or bottom of the window.
To fix the leak, you will need to remove the old weatherstrip and install a new one.
Purchase a compatible weatherstrip seal for your Honda along with weatherstrip adhesive.
Step Two – Check the drain tubes
Located in each of the four corners of the roof are drain tubes that divert water out of your car. If you remove the carpeting in the driver side foot well, you can see a drain tube firewall exiting the car frame. The grommet around the tube may have come loose or it may be eroded. A simple repair would be to replace the grommet with a new one, and make sure the tube securely runs through the firewall.
If the drain tubes are clogged, insert the plastic nozzle from a can of compressed air into the entrance of the drain hole on the roof. Blow air into the drain tube for a few seconds. Then run water through it, and make sure it is exiting properly from underneath the driver side wheel well. If there’s still no water exiting the drain tube, continue to blow air into the drain tube.
Step Three – Check the door panel
If you remove the door panel, behind it is a plastic rain guard.
Although this plastic cover is sealed to the door, it can still wear and develop leaks over time. Water would then run past the glass, exit through the door sill, and into the driver side foot well.
To check if this is the problem, lay down towels by the bottom door panel inside of the car.
With the door closed, spray water onto the windshield for a couple of minutes.
Then open the door, and check if the leak is from the plastic rain guard. To fix the problem, simply reseal the plastic cover with adhesive.
Pasture Irrigation Systems can be time consuming and complicated due to the need to size PVC pipe correctly, move hand lines daily to ensure total watering coverage, the many hours of maintenance to fix broken PVC pipe due to cows or other livestock stepping on or bumping the sprinkler heads as well as replacing brass heads that have been stolen. However, this can all be a thing of the past if you install this revolutionary Pasture Irrigation System created by Irritec USA and sold by Drip Depot. (For more information visit us here: https://www.dripdepot.com/category/54d266a075eb5135ff660100 ) The system works by using a quick coupling valve and a water key that has a brass impact sprinkler attached to it. The key and sprinkler are popped in to the valve and easily removed when it is time to move the sprinkler head. This eliminates having to move hand lines and the chance that an animal will rub on and/or break the PVC pipe because the sprinkler is only in the pasture when it is on. During the winter the sprinkler and key can be brought inside. Thus eliminating theft of the brass sprinkler head.
