Water in all footwells how do I remove

Recommended Posts


does anyone have any idea how to remove water from driver-side and passenger-side front and back footwells I’ve heard that the drains may be blocked in the car and I am unsure how to get the water out at the footwell

Quickest way is to use a 'wet vac', maybe you can borrow one for an hour? Then your next priority is to find out where the water is coming from... If there isn't much, a few old bath towels would soak up a fair amount.

If you really can't get the carpets dry and the windows keep steaming up because of it then try leaving a de-humidifier in the car all day.

Or if no humidifier, buy one of those little disposable BBQ trays, place carefully on the drivers seat resting on a metal tray of some sort, leave all the doors open, light carefully and retire to a  safe distance... it'll be dry in no time. :laugh:
