    Hey Guys
    I am having a little trouble with my 06 double cab Tacoma, we have had heavy rainfall for the last few weeks, and I recently started parking my truck outside, I noticed my passanger floor is soaked, I do have rubber floor mats, but the water is on the carpet underneith, it originally was coming from the cabin air filter area, as it was soaked and water sprayed out when I used the fan, so I installed some flashing to divert the water, now the cabin filter is dry! but I am still getting large amounts of water on the floor. I did a search but could not find another source of the leak, any ideas?

    my sisters GT did this exact same thing, wat we did is took apart where the plastic piece is under the windshield wiper and underneath there was a rubber drain thing that wasnt oppening correctly, we took it out and it fixed the problem, not sure if it would work on the tacoma but worth a shot

    Thanks, I read this one, installed some flashing over the area under the cowel, this flashing diverts any water from entering. I bought the truck used and I am sure the windshield has been previously replaced, but have tried looking on a rainy day with a flashlight but am unable to source the leak. Water appears under the passanger floor mat, I have large rubber mats but never see any water on them, and the drivers side floor is dry, same with the rear of the truck.

    Ok guys,

    Found the problem, see pictures, water is penetrating the rusty tig welds.

    Unfourtunately my truck suffered a $10,000 crash when it was 6 months old. I have sealed this with silicone and still love her!

    This picture shows underneith the carpet on the passanger side firewall.
