    Default GDG F-150 Rider's side carpet wet GDG

    Seems my 06 F-150 is leaking somewhere. The riders side carpet will get wet and then dry out, only to get wet again. I had it to the dealership several times and they can't seem to figure it out.

    Anyone else had a similar problem?

    Yep, it took forever to figure it out. Depends for my shotgun riding buddy took care of the problem.

    Sorry no idea.

    I had a 2000 dodge 3500 Cummings ,that had that issue ,it ended up being the heater core leaking,but only when heater was on ,as it didnt circulate anti-freeze through heater core when heater was off....just a thought ,maybe similar.

    Have you had your A/C on?

    My 2010 was leaking at the light above the bed. Depending on how it is sitting in the driveway, the water may be running toward the front above the head liner. The sat radio antenna can also be a source of leaks.

    If it smells sweet like antifreeze, it's the heater core. Otherwise probably clogged drain/drip tube from A/C.

    I have seen several do the same thing with plugged AC drain, that and heater core about all it can be if it leaks when it hasn't been raining

    when i worked as a mechanic i saw this from time to time and some times it was the reasons listed above or it could be your front air vent intake in front of your windshield could be clogged and the water from rain or melted ice will find a way through the vent system

    do you have a sun roof?

    sometimes the drainage line can go, and depending on how they are routed down the vehicle could be a source of your problem.
