After it rains i have a puddle on the passanger side floorboard. I thought it was coming from the mirror plate but when i replaced the mirror and it just rained this evening, i still get the puddle.

Anyone ever deal with this before.

I had some problems with the drains right in front of where the wipers mount. I ran an old bass guitar string down in there and cleared all the crud out. Maybe that will help your problem.

Also you could get the hose out and have someone spray it down while you look for the leaks inside.

Wiper drains and windshield leaks are two I had, although the way the wipers are the driver's side is more likely to leak.
