Water on passanger side comin in, when going through a high pressure carwash! So had to change the Blower motor resistor because or the water pourring in! Is there a hole beneath the wiper motor


Hello. Welcome to FixYa. Please allow me to help out here.

Yes, there is a hole under the wiper motor. This is where the heater/defroster gets fresh air from.

If you are getting water in the heater box, the drains that keep the water from backing up, and entering the hole, are blocked. You will need to have the cowl panle removed, and any debris under the cowl removed and cleaned out.

Rain leaks in on passenger side from below dash on passenger side on my 1999 oldsmobile intrigue. Not everytime it rains but often.


has the ac blower motor been under dash been replaced ? my brother replaced mine but didnt rain for a while so when there was standing water in the floor board didn't even think about it but after a small wreck and in the process of replacing right fender and hood had to take off cowl vent panel so decided to look and see if could find leak and sure enough there is a rubber seal around the hole the blower motor fits in and it was not seated correctly reached down seated no more leak hope this help worth checking any way

Water is leaking into the trunk of my 2005 Honda accord whenever it rains


My 1990 Honda Accord does this too.
When I wash it or when it rains. If I open the trunk/deck lid water flows out of the right rear tail light housing into the trunk.

Solution: get some rubber gasket sealant and apply under the lower gasket around the rear window on each side at the corners. Allow for drying time. Close the trunk and try some water if this doesn't work you will likely have to replace the rear window seal.

Best of luck.

All my windows get foggy


If Your Fan is operating properly, along with Your defroster Meaning Your A.C. Pump is charged and engaging, I would have to take a look at Your heater-core to see if it may be leaking on to Your floor on the passenger side. Therefore causing more moisture in the car than can be evaperated under normal conditions... Hope this may Help!

Water sounds under hood when you first accelerate


Thank you for allowing me to assist you with your issue.

Since you have described that there was a buildup of leaves under your hood, my experience here indicates that the "cowl drains" are also plugged up with debris. The "cowl" is where the air enters the heater box intake (this is the area under the hood, in front of the windshield, with a black screen-looking thingy under the wipers). Since air has to get in here, water & debris can also get in. There are drain areas on both sides of the cowl (in the corners) to eliminate water from building up in the cowl area. Try this: Take a bucket of water, and dump it under the windshield area where the screen is on the cowl panel. Look behind each of the front tires for water draining onto the ground. You should see a very steady stream of water on both sides. If not, you may have to take a garden hose & spray vigorously until the debris is carried thru. You could also take off the wipers and the plastic cowl panel for easier access to the corners where the drains are blocked. In any case, a large volume of water will usually make its way thru the blockage. This will cure your issue. Please repost if you have any further questions, or need additional assistance; glad to be of service to you.
