    I have a 99 Tacoma, and I have just recently noticed that the passenger side carpet is all wet. I pulled it apart and realized that there is a leak from somewhere. I had a Toyota before my Tacoma and it had the same problem. I have searched for the leak all over and can't seem to find it. Anyone have the same problem? If so where did you find your leak and what did you do to fix it?
    Thanks:confused:

    This ^ there was a TSB on it.

    Also check for a kink, clog or disconnect in the AC drain line.

    That's what happened to both my Tacoma and Legacy - and the passenger side, only, carpet was drenched.

    edit: nvm, I read you saw a small leak while your buddy was hosing it down... good money is on a windshield seal leak.
