!991 buick park avenue. the trunk fills with water during heavy rains..resealing rear window didn't help..where in the heck is the drain plug for the trunk..if any?


There is no drain plug. For the leaks be certain to investigate: sunroof drains, taillight seals, and the trunk seal. Many trunk seals actually channel water into the trunk. New designs are available on many GMs.

best thing to do is get a friend to hold a water hose get in the trunk with a flashlight and see if water gets in. if not go inside the cab of the car and have your friend run water on the roof of the car. if it has a sunroof clean the drains.

1989 golf turns over, new distribitor and starting


Did you use electric grease on these parts, the plug wires,and coil pack need this grease on there. It prevents moisture and wetness from rain getting within the components and causing mis-fire. Did it rain or was it cold outside to produce moisture. Grease is $2 for small pack. I just worked on a 95 VW, changed the cap,rotor button, spark plugs, cleaned throttle body, new air filter, fuel filter. His would run fine, but would cut off sometimes up to hours until the moisture dried. After tuning it up, he no longer has the problem. He goes through water puddles to see if it will quit, but it hasn't yet. Worth a $2-$3 try.

I have water leaking on the right rear floor passenger side


Sounds to me like your issue is with condensation from your air conditioner. The condensation isn't properly draining, probably from a damaged or clogged drain hose.

Water in rear footwell


Look in the front door frame, there are drains from the sunroof that are possibly plugged.
Squeeze the plastics nipples to see if water or dirt/debris comes out.
I took a 10" piece of metal shirt hanger and ran it up the nipple and alot of **** came out. Solved my problem.

Good luck

I have a vw golf mk 4, 1999, 2.0 GTI, 5door. whenever it rains the back footwells get soaked i have got a sunroof but i am sure waters not coming in from there i think it could be the door seals. could...


I understand there are 4 run off points for the water two at the front and 2 at the back.

on my golf i had a problem that the front one was blocked (off side ) if you open the door and look where the hinges are there is a black rubber nipple this was blocked.

I understand the back ones are underneath somewhere - if you do a sear on golf mk4 interior leak you should get the answer to your problem - I hope this information is useful.

Floor carpet in rear is wet.


If it is not the drainage holes from the sunroof as suggested above, then it is almost certainly the seal at the bottom of the door nearest the wet patch. Remove all plastic interior door trim and you will see a rubber seal running around the lower part of the door which prevents water ingress. With age, the seal leaks and water enters the inside of the vehicle at the bottom of the door. It is easily resealed with a suitable sealant from an autoparts' shop. About one hour's labour. Good luck.
