Water on driver side floor of 2011 equinox


Check to make sure it's water and not anti freeze, if it is then the heater box is leaking...If it is just water then you have a bad seal around the windshield or the door seal is leaking..Check the seal around the door to see if it's torn or come loose. Maybe get in the car and have someone squirt the door area and windshield, with a garden hose, maybe you can see where it's come in at.

I had water coming through my sun visors this morning after a heavy rain. Where is it coming from? I don't have a sun roof.


The car is too new to have rust issues along the top edge of your roof so it must be a problem with the seal around the windshield. Look at the top of the windshield and see if you can see any kind of damage to the black rubber seal along the top of the wind shield. There may have been a rock or something hit it allows water to enter along the top edge of the windshield. If this is the case the roof lining will must likely also be damp. Hope this helps.

I have water leaking in from above thru the electronic console, wondering if it might be coming from the roof racks? I also have water coming in on the drivers side floor and can't find the leak, any...


More likely is a leak at the windshield seal at the top of the windshield. The water on the floor could also be coming from around the windshield, water leaks travel anywhere they find a path. On a dry day, take a garden hose and with very little water flow, apply the water to the top of the windshield for a while. Check for water on the floor. The water that's getting into your electronic console is probably happening at speed.

Rubber windshield trim has come loose on driver side. Should I reattach myself (with sealer) or return to dealer? Thanks.


Take it back to the dealer and see how much he will charge to fix it.If it's too costly at the dealership, take it to a good automotive glass shop and have it repaired. You could try to fix it with sealer, but that never comes out right. The seal will only be temporary, and probably will look bad.

WINDSHIELD WAS REPLACED, BUT WATER IS COMING INTO THE CAB FROM SOMEWHERE


This is fairly common after a windshield has been replaced. Odds are there was a gap in the sealer used, or if the windshield has a rubber seal, that may have problems. Normally the shop that installed the windshield will fix any leaks under warranty. You will have to check with them to see if they will cover it. I would suggest that you make it sound like you are pretty sure the leak is coming from the windshield, in order to get their attention, so that they will check it out for you. If it has been a while since it was replaced then you might have to locate the leak and repair it yourself. If this is the case major auto parts stores carry sealer for windshields. Get in the vehicle, and roll up the windows, and get someone to go around the windshield with a water hose to try to spot the leak. Also even if it has been a while call the shop that installed the windshield, some of them offer lifetime warranty's on the seal of windshields they install. If the leak is coming from another source the water hose trick should help you find the leak regardless of the origin. Good luck with it.

When it rains the drivers side floor board is wet. It is not leaking from the roof.


Hi,
it sounds like your windshield seal is perished.
Try pouring some water onto the windshield rubber seals from the outside and see if you can find the leak.
There are several commercial windshield rubber seal repair glues out there which you can use to fix it. Try an auto or hardware shop.
It is also possible that the water is coming thru the car body so try removing the plastic kick panels around the drivers foot area and have a good look for rust.
The worst case scenario is that there is a hole from possibly rust from under the area where the dashboard meets the top rear section of the engine bay area.
Cheers,
Steve

I have a 2003 t-bird with water leak


sorry to hear about your car problems

4 things come to mind.
1.) has the car been wrecked and repaired, if so the doors may be out of adjustment.

2.) faulty door deals. the rubber seal that goes around the doors.

3.) a bad windshield installation or seal. if the windshield seal is bad it could allow water in at the top which could run between the cars metal roof and the fiberboard interior roof.

4.) bent doors

if the car has never been wrecked and the doors have never been removed then you can pretty much count out 1 and 4. check the door seals for tears or missing or flat sections. if they are intact then you may want to try pouring some water around the top of the windshield and check for leaks.

just some ideas. hope this helps, have a good day.

2000 corvette convertible top rear window came


This is a common problem with many cars. It is delamination. If the window is loose in spots, it can often be repaired with urethane adhesive like glass shops use for windshields. If the glass is more than 30% delaminated, chances of fixing it are slim. With the glass all the way out, you need a new top. Karl at topgunwon.com
