Drivers floorboard getting wet

Just FYI not a complaint. The dealer replace my top a few months ago and I am now finding moisture under the drivers floormat. Not soaked but damp to the touch. Anyone else here have the dealer replace their top?

Get back to the dealer. You don't want your carpet getting stinky or your floor pan rotting out.

My first question would be "is this the ONLY place that is wet"? Check the rear, as this is a known problem IF the water management bag has been damaged during the top replacement OR the drain tubes are not "seated" correctly. Definitly get it back to have it checked.

Water in the floor pans is a KNOWN Problem, YIKES.....
So I open my wifes 2011 convertible last night to grab something out the back and the rear passenger floor pan has about a 1/2 inch of water in it and Im thinking WTF.
We had been a way for the weekend, no one drove it and it was all closed up. There had been some heavy rain two nights ago in Toronto. But where is the water coming in????? I double checked the windows and they were all the way up.
drain tubes - OK I get that but the water management bag? the top is original.

I'll call a Dealer but is this covered under warranty.

Do they have an outstanding problem number on this?
The car is a 2011 and has only 45000KM (Canada Eh). Summer driven, stored during the Winters in the Great White North.

Any feedback is appreciated.

Further to that water issue. After looking up what a water management bag is for a Camaro, I partially retracted the roof and there is still about an inch of water in the bag.
So I booked an appointment at the dealer.
i also see that some people get the old bag replaced due to a flap that might let water in. Seems like a big job from the pictures I saw.
I am going to ask them if they can check and unplug the drain holes.
Has anyone else had this problem?
Thanks

My vert had about an inch or more of standing water in the backseat. I would have never known if my jacket wouldn't have fell onto the floor. It was so wet that I had to literally ring the water out of it! So my car has been in the shop for another 4 weeks no...trying to rectify the issue. They say the water bag was punctured whenever the top was replaced, so there is no telling how long the water has been wreaking havok on my carpet! Thankfully the dealer is being moe than helpful in fixin the problem. Thy have taken all of the seats out of my car and either cleaned or replaced the carpet. At first they were sent a repair kit to fix the bag, but it didn't work, so now I'm waiting on a brand new bag I guess.
