    So I had water on my passenger floorboard today. I removed the carpet on the passenger side and it was soaking wet!



    I thought it was a plugged ac drain: I ran the ac for 30 minutes, my ac drain worked fine.

    Then I checked the sunroof: I had a waterhouse trickling water on the sunroof for a good 15-20 minutes, nope.

    Third I checked my heater by turning on the heater for a good 30 minutes: no antifreeze smell, no dripping inside the cabin.

    I was puzzled.

    Then I noticed my wiring running along the floorboard (picture from previous wiring install):



    Then it occurred to me: What if rain water trickled down the wiring that I ran from the engine bay?

    I grabbed a water hose, and sprayed the area where all my mod wiring leaves the engine bay and enters the cabin: sure enough, we had water trickling in there!


    When I installed my busman fusebox, I ran my wiring thru the passenger side wiring grommet:



    I poked a hole with a hook and fished the wire thru the grommet:



    Well, guess what, the water was trickling thru there when it would rain.

    So remember guys, silicone around the wiring that goes thru the grommet!
