Default Roof left open under the rain

Guys!
I forget the roof open Wednesday evening, and I realized it yesterday night. more than 24 hours during which it has rained so much, anche even hailed.

I took off mats, dried the console with a rag, and the floor with some cat sand. But under the front seats there is something like a bowl which is almost full of water.
Is there a kind of plug under the platform to drain it? Or do I have to take it off from above, with a high power hoover, for example?

You better remove the seats and carpet and dry everything. The carpet has padding that could be all soaked. Besides, there's wiring attached to the floor, and the TPMS module. I had to do it once with a minivan, although it was easier because two rows of seats could be rolled out through the back and the whole floor was flat.

For TPMS you mean tire pressure monitoring? Because I don't have it.

Yeah, just vacuum it from above. I think only Wranglers have plugs. The most sensitive item is the ECU. I am not sure where it is on the TB, but on the OB it is on the pax side, in the foot rest area. It could be either under it or in front of it.

So the TPMS is there only to comply with the regulations in place in the US. Still, there's a number of harness connectors just sitting on the floor underneath the carpet, and if the pad is soaked, it might start to smell. It comes down to how much water was actually taken in.
