Wet floorboard - drivers side

(2000 Mitsubishi Galant)
in Jacksonville, FL on October 06, 2009
We have a leak on the driver's side floor board...just in front of the seat. Our mechanic says that it is not A/C. We think it is...because it doesn't get wet during the winter(2 months of Florida winter when you can open the windows)We didn't have any problem last winter. Do you have any idea what is causing this? There is no leak in the door or the window.

Windshield or door seal leaking? I had that problem in my van, it ended up being the seal on the windshield.

really only 220? I was told somewhere around 450! I guess if it is only 220, I can look around for someone who will do it bc I went to 3 shops and they all said 450+!!! awesome!

I have an 01 Mitsu Galant and my mechanic said it was the A/C... something to do with the A/C drip pan or something like it. They told me they could not fix it, but that a Mitsu. dealer could. It was not a cheap fix, so I have not gotten it done. However, the water has kept my floor so wet that the carpet is now worn so much that it is peeling off. The mechanic did say that I may have electrical issues a long way down the road also. They said that Mitsu did not recall this particular issue because it was not actually causing a safety issue.
What I can tell you is that if you do not get it fixed, you should go shampoo your carpet with one of those heavy duty vacuums once every month or so because it will start to mold and some molds are dangerous to breathe in, touch, or be exposed to in any way.
good luck with yours... if I end up getting mine fixed, I will let you know how it goes!
