HeLp Wet no SOAKED front floors 2008 Sierra

I have a serious amount of water in the carpeting and matting under the driver and passenger floors. I have been plowing a lot getting in and out but it still seems like a lot of water to me hopefully someone else has had this problem and has some ideas. It's bubbling the paint and rusting on the drivers side on the flat metal around the e brake cable not touching the gasket just where the water pools?????????

08LMM08LMM,

I’m sorry you are experiencing this issue with your Sierra vehicle. This may be due to the parking brake cable grommet becoming unseated. This is just a suggestion and is not meant as a diagnosis.

I recommend consulting with a certified technician for additional assistance. They will be able to offer an official diagnosis after inspecting the vehicle.

Please keep us posted.

If you need assistance locating a technician near you, please PM me your zip code for a listing.

never been able to diagnose my problem, but I was told by a reputable HVAC shop cause I suspected heater core that the way the NBS systems are designed if the heater core goes it will not drain into the cab it will drain out of the condenser drain.

IDK how true that is but they know HVAC and I don't jack with it

I had a similar issue on drivers side with the floor getting wet. Turned out to be the grommet that goes between the cab post and the door. On the cab post it was wrinkled and letting water run in when it came off the edge of the windshield cowl and down the side. Just a thought.
