Question about 2005 Chrysler Town & Country
Water is soaking the floor boards of the driver and passenger sides. The van has a sun roof, and we suspect that water is leaking from the sun roof down along the sides of the wind shield behind the paneling. I was told that there are drains behind the paneling that direct fluid (presumably) to the bottom exterior of the van. Is this true? And, if so, how do you remove the interior paneling along side the wind shield to access the drains? Or, is something else likely causing the problem of water leaking on to the interior floor board of the van? There are no obvious signs of where the water is coming from and it only happens when it has been raininig.
The drain tubes are a definate possibility, but, usually you will see a water mark on the headliner. The panels are fairly easy to remove, if it has assist handles you will need to remove the rubber or plastic plugs that cover the screws, then remove the screw and gently pull out and upward on the panel, it has metal clips that snap into the sheet metal but it also will have a plastic hook to locate the bottom of the panel, you don't want to break this. This will allow you to check the drain tubes. Also don't rule out the windsheild itself. Especailly if it has ever been replaced. Sometimes there is an air bubble in the sealer/adhesive tube they use to secure the windsheild, if not caught and filled in it will cause a water and or air leak (this happens from the factory too).
