Question about 1997 Audi A4

1 Answer

Door/Window seals I have a 97 avant quattro which is leaking rain water onto the back seats. I am struggling to locate the source since the rubbers seem to be in good condition and the rear windows seem to close tight. Has anyone encountered this problem?

Possibly a clogged sunroof drain - it runs down one of the pillars inside and out the bottom of the car just behind the rear wheel. If one of those is clogged, it could backfill and leak out onto your seats.

RAIN leaks onto passenger side floor... definitely NOT the heater core or windshield.


Year make and model? Some Gm's have a rubber seal that mounts to the body under the windshield cowling. It falls off letting water in threw the air vent/ filter. Silicone it back on.

2005 xc70 volvo ceiling leak when it rain


Sounds like rubber seal is leaking, check the rubber seals along the side of the windshield and along the inner door. The seal can be easily replaced or patched with silicon sealeant.

Hope this helps

Driver Side Leaking


I had a problem like this before. Carpet was soaked after the winter. There is a few spots to check out here. Your window seals could be dried out and allowing water to creep past them. You may have a rubber grommet missing from your fire wall or under the vehicle. Mine was a rubber plug right under the feet area of the floor board and was missing. If your car is relatively new, I would make sure your car door and window seals completely when it is closed. Check it out next time at the car wash. If everything is dry, hose it down real good so it will cause the leak to appear. Follow the leak to the source or where it begins to get wet first. That will reveal your problem.

Mazda Bt50 cab leaks on drivers side


I recently purchased a 2008 BT50 dual cab then 2 days later we had 500mm of rain and of course it leaked :( I had about 80mm of water on the drivers side floor and 30mm on the passenger side floor. I stripped the interior out of the car and started hosing the outside and watching where it was coming in. I took all the windscreen surrounds off and the cowl panel off below the screen there was no water coming in from that area. I had taken the gutter seals off but left the door seals on so the water was running down around the outside of the seals (with the door shut) and out at the bottom. From inside near the drivers side kick panel I could see water coming through seams in the metal work and when I took the door seal rubber off the body on the car I could see water was getting in at the top of the door seal rubber going down the front inside edge of the rubber and getting in through the seam where the rubber push's onto the body of the car (first problem). I took all the door seal rubbers off and run a bead of non corrosive silicon inside the cavity and pushed them back on. It seemed to have fixed the problem I dried the carpet and put it back together..Two weeks later we got another 325mm of rain and it leaked again :( not near as bad this time. Looking at the bottom of the door where the door trim meets the door I could see water coming from behind the trim and then into the car. I took the door trims off and could see water gets in when the window is up (all cars do) and is supposed to run out the drain holes in the bottom of the door but the water was dripping and splashing up to the back side of the door trim against the sheet of plastic that is supposed to seal against the door with the black mastic (it doesn't) and running straight into the car. I cut some plastic and siliconed them onto each opening on the inside of the door frame and then put the factory piece of plastic on as well (properley this time) as a backup.
So far so good.

I have a 1992 Honda Accord and whenever it rains, water leak through the speaker on the passenger side door and make a big puddle on the floor. Also the water leaks into a hole in the floor by the ECU


Not comming from the speaker! Make sure that the rubber door trim aound the door is intact and not damaged. Additionally, check the rubber seal on the outside of the window where it retracts into the door. These are the only 2 ways that water can enter through the passenger door.

Water in both back floorboards after rain 96 bonneville


Water on the floor board in the back seat is usually caused by a leaking rear window, or leaking back glass...you will need to remove the inner rear door panels to confirm the exact leak...(as long as it is warm enough:) after removing the door panels...you can ask a friend to help...run water from a garden hose over the outside, and continue until you see the location of where the water is coming from...if the rubber seals on the top or bottom of the doors are bad...this certainly allows the rain (water) to come inside...Nice Car and worth fixing...:)

there may be a few things causing this, first make sure there no open holes in floor, then check trunk seal and make sure its not coming from trunk, next would be the back window,take a water hose and spray diffrent areas and check for leaks inside,could be also rubber around the back door or rust holes in wheel wells of rear wheels,

Water standing floor of 1991 corsica


That can be caused by the door or window seals. Around all your doors there is a rubber seal, this seal can degrade and allow water into the interior. There are also seals around the windows and front and rear windshields. If I were you I would visually inspect all the rubber seals on all your doors and windows, if any part of the seals is worn it should be replaced. You can buy universal weatherstripping kits off the shelf at any auto parts store to replace any of yours that are bad and it's pretty easy to install. You can also pick up a tube of silicone sealent to seal any small gaps or cracks in the existing seals.

Hope this helps

is it water or coolant? if it's just rain water, open passenger door and check around door frame for any holes that the rubber seals should be in are unplugged. if so just plugg them back in. also open hood and check area right below windshield, there should be a rubber strip the lenth of the window, make sure it's press firmly down. look down further to see if any holes where rain can get in, if so plug them up. if it's coolant, it's probably a heater hose . good luck
