    Hi,
    Long time browser, first time user. I just bought my second Tacoma in ten years. I had a '96 Xtra Cab that wouldn't die - it was an awesome truck. Sold it years ago and now recently bought another 1st gen Taco - this time a double cab so I can tote the kids around AND have some room for my hobbies - DIY and vintage motorcycles. Good time. While I'm here I'll ask a question (and maybe repost in the proper channel if no one responds): Anyone know why the driver's floor (carpet) gets damp when it rains or when dew settles from the night before? I just bought the truck and had the dealership replace the windshield seal and molding because water was coming in from the grab bar. Now, it doesn't seem to be leaking there anymore but water is getting in somehow and I am pretty certain from UNDER the carpet. I say this because i put plastic on top of the carpet overnight and there was only moisture on the bottom side of the plastic and not the top. Thanks in advance!

    Solve the problem with the leaking. The previous owner of my Tacoma sliced one of the openings in the firewall rubber grommet on the driver's side firewall - to the right of the master cylinder under the hood. He ran a couple of aftermarket things through it - and didn't bother to seal the grommet with some RTV silicone. Sure enough, every time it rained, water would drip down the windshield cowl into the engine area and right on the rubber grommet. Sealed it with RTV and we're good to go. Now I'm thinking about replacing the stinky carpet.
