I detest wet draws...I always keep mine in a water proof drawer.

A couple of rust holes in the floor of my old banger seems to work a treat.....the water comes in...the water drains out. Have you been doing any creek crossings?? May be coming up through the floor. Just a thought.

Have you taken out the rear seats and not replaced the bolts into the floor. Maybe the water is getting in there. Only other suggestion is to take out the carpets and look for missing rubber plugs or other holes.

Hi

Have you checked your aircon condensor drip tube? If the grommets are not seated properly or the hose/tube has problems the resultant moisture can travel along and wind up back inside at the next convenient point.

Just a thought.

I reckon ur right Jeff a lot of the 100 series have a second air in the rear when ordering draws u must let them know so as to build them accordingly

Hi wr450tractor,

A few of possibilities come to mind.

Agree with bolts holes not sealed in the floor but would only be an issue if you've been doing deep water crossings as they're fairly high up? Worth checking though.

Have you checked your rear quarter panel areas (behind the plastic moulding). Water can actually get into both rear quarter panels via the outside air vents just below the rear windows when you're washing the car. If the water can't get out via the drainage points in the bottom it might eventually fill and spill over into the rear compartment - although I would expect you should hear the sloshing water if it's that high;

Also, have you checked the window seals around the glass for the back windows? Are they still tight and seal properly? The glass can blow out a bit if you pressurise the cabin and then let water in past the glass;

You didn't indicate how old the 100 series was and even though you've checked the barn door seals, they could be getting worn and with the flexing letting water in during a trip.

My last suggestion is the check the Toyota forum LCOOL.org and see if anything comes up there - free registration.

Good luck with solving your leak.

Cheers

Hi George,
I had exactly the same problem and the issue was eventually solved by proper resealing of my roof rack mounting bolt points !!!

Dont forget to silastic the roof rack bolts as they can ingest water that pools down to the inside rear in the cavity obove the towbar mounts.
