Where should I look for rain water leak?


Most water leaks come from around the windshield area. Has the windshield been replaces recently? If so it may not be sealed properly. Another area where water may penetrate is through the cowling area under the wiper blades/arm where fresh air enters the car. There are water drains under this cowling allowing water to drain and if they are plugged with leaves/debris, water will enter the vehicle. Is the vehicle rusted around the windshield area? If so, suspect this to be the source of water intrusion. Most glass/windshield repair companies will diagnose water intrusion problems

After rain when lifting tailgate water drips out


inspect the rubbers around the rear lift gate closely by running you finger down the rubber seal, use clear silicone if need to if the seal any part of the seal if is not seated properly or broken, this will be temporary fix. correct fix will need the new rubber seal. have someone sit in the back in the rear near the liftgate, take a water hose and hose down the rear and see where the leak is comming from. hope that help some

Water leaking into KH laser Hatchback


It could be coming in through the rear door as the rubber might not be sealing properly the easiest way to find the leak is to remove your seats and carpet sit inside get someone to squirt the car round the doors and windscreen air vents.

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
