11gencpe,

The fix for the water on foot well issue is so stupid of a fix, I'm shocked it really worked. But the only thing more shocking is when you check your Cabin air filter. Don't turn on your A/C till you replace it or it dries. That filter held back a lot the water from enter your car.

Jpc647,

Not trying to be mean but I don't really feel like explaining. When you get that water on the passenger foot well, you will know what I mean.

I have gotten water on the passenger side footwell, and took it to the dealer and they couldn't find the cause Is there some thread on here or a post I missed?

Water leak come in from the fresh air vent in the cowl (Don't know if I spelled it right). When it rain, water gets high in there and it leak into the fresh air vent which then leaks onto cabin air filter. Once the cabin air filter is soaked, the water then travels to your floor mat. Most people only notice the water when they get rubber mats.

I've personally tested the issue using a water hose to simulate the rain then I was able to fix the with a long flat head screw driver and some automotive silicone. A Hyundai Tech had showed how to fix it early in the thread but the picture were very difficult to figure out.

Some people have had their wind shield replaced and that will also fix it assuming the wind shield was slightly taller and is placed a little lower.

Honestly, most people will still not know what I'm talking about because it is easier to show than explain.

I have a leak in the drivers side footwell after a heavy rain. I started driving and a bunch of water leaked on to my left foot. This is somewhat concerning as I looked inside the footwell and some of the wires under there had water dripping off of them. Not sure where the water got in after I had a look around....

I am experiencing the same challenge for years now. My trustworthy mechanic of 2 decades checked the a/c and rain the hose test, and did not discover the cause. I rarely run the a/c; and notice the water increases after a rain.

The dealership 1st accused me of leaving my windows open in the rain (it hadn't rained for weeks, and we were coming off of a a hot sunny weekend (which I had my car parked outside in the blistering sun) and that day I had parked in a garage all day, and drove with the windows down, no a/c), then accused me of spilling a drink in there (uh, no!). They then followed that up with "I should just trade it in because they cannot find the problem." Why would I buy a new coat just because my button fell off?!
Help?!

I just bought a white Genesis Coupe 3.8 Track about 2 months ago and i love it, but there's one design problem, water leaks in on the passenger side foot well. The first time i noticed this was after we had a pretty good rainstorm and there was about a cup of water on my passenger side floor mat(they're rubber mats so i could see it). And I didn't think much of it but i would keep an eye on it. After our latest storm i could obviously tell water was dripping in. So i immediately took it to the dealership where i bought the car where they could check it out. They ran it through the car wash 3 times and it never leaked, but when they put water hose on the windshield so the water could run down into the area where the fresh air for the a/c is taken in and it leaked. The fresh air intake for the a/c is located at the base of the windshield area. If you open the hood and look at the back of the engine compartment you'll see a rubber seal that seals the rear of the hood and directly behind that seal in the middle of the car are about 20 or 30 little holes, and that is where your fresh air is being taken in. Now the area around this intake does not adequately drain water, which leads to a back up of the water and causes the leaking to occur(the leak only occurs when the car is parked, not moving). People with carpet mats probably dont notice this because the water is a limited amount, but its still water coming into your car. Hyundai said that they had no fix to this problem yet, but it's a factory defect and they need to come up with one soon. Keep your eyes out for water guys!
I have the same exact problem. When it rains water builds up only on the back passenger floor. Has anyone found a fix?

After driving in a bad storm last week I found around 3oz of water under the spare tire. Glad to find this thread and know I'm not alone. Will take for warranty fix.

It's pretty easy to take out the taillights. 4-8mm nuts and the one connector. You will find that the gasket has been comprised by dirt and built up so the water then enters the taillight and the trunk.

Update:

After 2 years, the leak has not returned. And yes, this was completely covered under warranty.
Update: well so much for that. Got the car back from the carwash and found water in the spare well.

Man! Even Hyundai service techs know this is a design flaw with the rear taillights.
