Over a month there we have had water on the floor on rear back passenger floor. First idea was that a bigger water bottle has broken but after drying the floor 2 times and being careful with drinks in the car water is still there.
Problem started with warm weathers, Estonia btw, when we stared using AC. The water stays on only on floor, sides are dry and it does not feel just wet -there has been liters of water.
Any ideas how the water may get there. AC condension water, class washer tube broken ... :huh:
All ideas welcome ;)

Take it to your dealer and ask them to find the leak? They would be aware of anything carrying water or pipes that could cause condensation in that area.

Update for situation - two days ago car just din't started from lights after short stoping and engine service text appeared. After 10 minutes car stared, but text remained. First stop was our volvo dealer.
First ideas was that there are some fuses and connections under front passer seat and moisture may have damaged something there, but nothing sure yet. I will keep update here asap, but similar water problem have been marked by factory at least one time in Europe!

I had the same problem with the older S40, turned out to be air con/ heater pipes to the vents under the front seats that had sprung a leak.

After three visits to dealer and noumerous tests while driving appeared finally that the tube that pipes the condensation water from the AC was just left unconnected in the factory and all the water just flowed to the floor!

Did you reserve the right to get them to replace all the carpeting if it starts to rot / have damp etc?
