2006 dodge durango that does not have a sun roof that leaks water on the Head liner and seat belt and floor when it rains or I go thru car wash? What could cause this?


I just Googled a picture.
There is a roof rack type trim on the roof.
Water flows downhill
3 possible sources:
- window trim
- windshield
- roof trim
I would be suspecting the roof trim. Determine how it is attached. Remove it. Clean the roof and all parts of the trim that contect the roof. Apply sealant in appropriate locations. Re- install roof trim.
Test
No leak!
Ta-Da!

2003 STS cadillac leaking water on both driver and passenger floor boards


It could be the sun roof. It also could be clogged drains from the sun roof. It may also be door seals Leaking. It could also be leaking around the bottom of the windshield. A good way to narrow it down is to get inside the car and have someone spray the outside of the car with a water hose. while you look for water leaking inside of the car. If it does it while the ac is on may be a clogged ac drain. however it usually just leaks on passenger side when it is that. well good luck.

Water leaking roof


Water leaking from the roof of your CAR? That should have absolutely no effect on your engine, unless it's leaking a huge amount and flooding the whole passenger compartment. Likewise, water leaking from your GARAGE roof shouldn't have any effect unless the whole garage is flooding really pretty deep.

So... I'd say you have one problem with the roof, and a second unrelated problem with the engine not starting.

2002 impala water dripping from panel where moon roof switch is, compass, fuel mpg info.


It is going to be the seal in your moon roof. Unless you have holes in the top of your car you can be sure that the water is coming from there.

I have a water leak in the back of the Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.1 ltd 2000, wet carpet with water going in to the spare wheel compartment


Hi Wayne,

I checked for Technical Service Bulletins (TSBs) for your vehicle to see if there are any "known" problems with water leaks. The only bulletin I found was about the sunroof (if equipped) leaking into the passenger compartment.

Since there are no known problems for leaks in the rear, you will just have to do some diagnosis. Water leaks can be very evasive. They can originate in one place and accumulate water in another place. Here are some tips:

First, check the seals around your rear door and window. If there are any cuts or damage to the seals, this is most likely your problem.

You may need to remove the inner trim pieces from both the door and from the vehicle sides. Then run a hose over the top of the vehicle and over the rear door to see if you can see any water running on the inside. Be sure and look for water coming down from the roof area. Sometimes the mouldings and sealing material along the roof seams will leak. If this is the case, it will run down the inside wall and end up in the spare tire well. If you cannot find it this way, it may be necessary to remove the seats and ALL the inside trim so the headliner can be removed. I have seen roof leaks that are originating near the front that follow the roof reinforcement channel all the way to the rear. There are holes in the roof reinforcement chanel where you can look inside with a mirror and a flashlight (the headliner must be removed for this).

Another likely place for a leak is along the sides of the roof where the roof racks attach (if your Jeep is equipped with them).

If you find a leak in one of the seams, it is best to repair it with some (water-based) tub and tile caulk or (oil or water-based) plumber's dope. It is not recommended that you use silicone based RTV sealer because this contains acids that can cause the sheet metal to corrode and you will end-up with a worse problem in the long run.

I hope this helps you to get it figured out.

The convertible roof leaks and also needs a


If you need a manual, you need a factory manual. Aftermarket manuals seldom address the convertible top.
Convertible tops seldom leak till they are 5-6 yrars old unless the material is defective.
Your problem is probably weatherstrips.
Either they are damaged or out of place.
Door window adjustment will also cause a leak at the weatherstrip.
If the water is in the rear of the car, you probably have plugged drains.
Convertibles leak at the rear from new. there is a gutter that directs the water to drain holes near the rear wheels. If the drains get plugged, the water will seep into the rear carpet or trunk.
Solution...clear the drains.
