After a rain, my 1992 LeBaron convertible has a soaked carpet front/back. I understand there are drain holes in the frame I should clean out. Please give location. And is there any reason that much water is getting into the floor -- i.e., under the carpet?

It is a safe bet you have a leak. Daaa

They make hardtop versions that don't leak. Is this automobile an extension of your personality? If not, then why are you driving a leaking car?  
Do you live in a house with a leaking roof?

Underneath the car, exactly beneath each floor mat there is a drain plug which is a plastic cap.  It is a little hard to pull it out (all four), but after the first time it will be easier.  Be sure to place the plugs back in exactly the same position as when removed so they don't fall out while driving.

there are plastic plugs underneath the carpets.  Can be pulled from underneath the car and then replaced when finished. Also some in the trunk.  And some where the side windows are.  These are just holes but can be cleaned out when the top is down.

There are drain holes in the bottom of the car that are plugged. The water from the top flows over the rear window and should exit the car underneath...but not if the holes are plugged. Pour water on the top and check both sides to see if one is open so you can see where the water drains out. Once you locate the spot, take a small screw driver and open up the other plug.

yes there are drainage holes, they are located on each side of the car at the base of the rear window wells,you can access then from outside the car at the rear wheel well. they are close to the rear or the rocker panel. The front ones are at the front wheel fender wells just in front of the door pillar, they can be blocked by leaves and various debris. a small flat screwdriver can be inserted to clean out the blockage . when the car is dry a vaccuum can be used as well   hope this helps    I can be reached at   youngin_heart51@hotmail.com
