Question about 2004 Acura MDX
Every time it rains, the carpet on the front passenger side close to the door sill is saturated. I cannot visually see where weatherstriping is failing. Has anyone had a problem with this? I have Acura MDX 2004 - same problem (water leak) + Navigation, CD, power outlets - shotdown... I don't think my extended warranty can cover this... so...!?!?
The 2002 MDX I worked on turned out to be a drainage problem . Seems the factory installed foam in the bottom of the hinge pillar post which blocked the drain holes . Take off the mud flap , remove enough of the splash shield to access the bottom of the hinge pillar and drill a half inch hole at the front lower corner aiming the drill slightly upward ( be sure to protect the bare metal) .Water gushed out when I did this. For extra ins. remove the kick panels and check for two holes a few inchs from the floor, plug and chaulk these holes. Hope this worksfor you too

My 02 MDX has the same problem. Where is the bottom of the hinge pillar post located exactly from Dacre53's solution?

My 2005 MDX was leaking water into both floorboards.The problem got really bad.Thanks to Dacre53 I have fixed the problem by following his directions that you posted and my nightmare has finally ended. I notifyed Acura in Calafornia and told them the problem and the simple fix.Also said to them that this water leak was due to a manafaturers defect and that there should be a recall,This really is such a simple fix by any dealer. If anyone owns this vehicle they should check under floormats after heavy rain.May have this problem and not even no it.
