Question about 1999 Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

I want to locate the leafguard drain below the windshield

I have a 1999 buick LeSabre. I have a leak inside the car from around the windshield. A windshield repair person said that it was not the windshield leaking. He said that there was a drain that drains the area directly under the windshield wipers that is covered by the leaf screen and that I should be able to unplug it by pushing a wire up through it without taking the leaf cover off. I need to know if this is correct and if so where is the drain location and how to access it to unplug it.

The drain runs behind the front door pillars. It can get clogged with leaves and debris. The usual corrective action is to ream it out with a coat hanger (straightened, of course) with a small hook on one end.

You could also see if the bolts holding the wipers on came loose from the snow and ice. Pop the cover off, loosen and straighten the wipers where they should be and tighten.

I have a 2002 Buick Century that is leaking water from below the front left windshield.How much disassembly is required to find the leak? ...

You may find that the drain at the bottom of the wind screen is blocked allowing water to get inside the car. It is worth trying to blow all the debris away as you may get lucky and blow the blockage away. You will need a compressor with a duster gun that can direct air into all the inaccessible areas.

  • Push the mirror lens upward so it faces the roof of your Buick LeSabre.

  • Place the eight-pointed star head of the Torx driver into the setscrew located in the base of the rearview mirror. Turn the Torx driver counterclockwise. This releases the clamping pressure on the mirror.

  • Slide the mirror upwards to remove it from its metal bracket.

  • Place the base of the replacement mirror against the windshield, directly above the metal bracket. Slide the mirror down into the bracket. The bracket has a groove on each side into which the mirror will slide.Secure the mirror to the bracket by tightening the setscrew clockwise with the Torx driver.

    04 Buick LeSabre leaking water at blower motor after new windshield was installed

    if this only happens when it rains then call the shop up to have them reseal it. If it happens when you run the AC then the drain vent is clogged and may not have anything to do with his work. Its simple to blow out the vent from under the car with compressd air. Have a shop do this on your next oil service. It will be alot cheaper rather than taking it in for just this procedure,

    If it's like a sticky film, on the inside of the windsheild, and has a similar smell to antifreeze in the vehicle, then it's a heater core leak, which I suspect it is, seeing how your coolant level is going down.
