Hi,

does it only leak when it rains or going thru a carwash?

Or does it leak when the AC is on?

How severe a leak? just wet carpet or actually puddling up?

Hi,

Ok, you need to peel the carpet back at the firewall underneath the dash and have someone spray the vehicle with a hose while you check the body seams for leaks. I have found that the most common area of leaks is where the firewall meets the floorpan and fender. If leaking at this or other body seam, use some 120grit sandpaper to lightly sand seam and then use windshield clear rtv sealant to reseal the seams to resolve the leak.

you think both sides have the body seam problems ? where i gonna spry water from outside ,engine side?
Expert:  Eric replied 4 years ago.
Hi,

Yes, I have seen both sides leak, mainly due to some flexing that can occur over bumps and such that crack the sealant.

spray the water on windshield, engine compartment, and thru the front wheel well openings.
