Yup, BTDT.  The previous owner of my 200q used that grommet for wiring, and
made a mess of it. Resulting in puddle on the driver's side.

A little bit of GE silicone sealant did the job.

As for drying out the interior...
Does your AC work?  If so, from now on, drive with it on, in recirculate mode.
At night, try to put a dehumidifier in the car, or in your closed garage,
with all the car windows open.
It will take some time to remove the water from BENEATH the carpeting.

Good luck!
