Customer Question

I have a persistant leak on the drivers side. We did the water test to see where is was coming in from, it leaks right behind the hood latch. Replaced the stripping in the panel above the door and siliconed. Its still leaking
JA: What part of the car is the leak coming from? And are you sure it's water?
Customer: yes I am sure its water. Parked it outside last night when it was raining and theres a 3-4 inch puddle in the drivers side. The water comes in below the hood latch and runs onto the floor
JA: What is the model/year of your Chevy?
Customer: 2008 Equinox LT
JA: Are you fixing your Equinox yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: My dad who is a mechanic and me. At first we thought it was the weather stripping in the little panel right above the door. We replaced that and siliconed. Its still leaking. Replaced the clips in the windshield and its still leaking
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: We poured water above the door and windshield to see what caused the water to come in. We’ve repaired everything that was obvious
