When I bought mine, the dealer had all 4 plugs removed. For what reason I don't know, but they were in a "Mopar" ziploc bag under the passenger seat.

This is the way I found out the plugs were removed. When I ran the A/C, the passenger side floor would be wet. After checking the drain and found it was clean, I was baffeled. I was rubbing the carpet and felt a soft area. I lifted the carpet to find the pulg was gone. Noticing a large puddle under the running Jeep I figured that A/C condencer's condensation was dripping on to the firewall and trailing to the underside to the exosed carpet making a puddle. It hasn't happened since reinstalling the plug.

The plugs should be a very snug fit and the obvious, no holes. If you can rotate them easily, they should be replaced. There's 2 in front and 2 in back, and yes, if there's enough water in the front, it can make it's way to the rear via the sides of the tub by the doors.

Hope this info helps ya

i have an 02 apex too. i had trouble with a lot of water in the passenger rear section of the floorpan, and a little water on the drivers side too. i drove myself nuts trying drain plugs, door weatherstripping, i dont have a/c so i know that didnt have anything to do with it. i think i might have traced it to the weatherstripping around the rear glass (my hardtop is on - i live in canada and its cold now). im going to try new weatherstripping i think ...
