Radio freezes up then turns off and back on again some days it works fine other days not so well


I actually took a 06 Commander in last week with the same problem. We checked the windshield carefully, and then drivers door moldings and then blew out the drains for the sun roof.
It still leaked down through the drivers' side drain line area of the sun roof, around the window moulding, and dripped right in the vicintiy of the rear of the radio.
We finally found the problem by dropping the head liner down and using an inspection mirror with a flash light. We disconnected the drain line and plugged the nipple opening and poured a small amount of water into the sun roof pan and located a hole in the drain pan just above where the nipple is formed for the drivers' side sun roof drain line.
We could not see the actual leak source without the mirror and flashlight, as it was on the interior side seam facing away from the drivers' door opening.

Since carefully sealing the drain pan seam just a 1/4 above the drain hose nipple on the interior side, slightly above where the drain hose connects, the problem appears to be solved.

It appears to be a manufacturing defect in the plastic seam in my opinion. Could just be a faulty radio if your car doesn't have a sunroof, or a leaking windshield gasket.

2006 H3, leaking rain water in on back seatbelts


GM had a major problem with this issue as models with sunroofs had drain holes that were mfr'd too small. On models without sunroofs, the drains behind the pillars were too small creating the wet/mildewy/dampness issue. All mods were at the expense of the consumer. However if you know a good body and fender man, they can perform this mod for a fairly decent price with excellent results.

Volvo s40 t5 2005, water leak behind the passenger seat


Most likely the sunroof drains are clogged. It happened to mine, the floormats and floors were soaked, especially behind the drivers side. Volvo wanted to charge me $550 to clear them out and dry out the floors. Instead I took it home, rolled down the windows, parked it in the sun and let it dry out. Then I found a mechanic who blew out the drains with compressed air for only $20. He had originally quoted me $50-100, but ended up doing it for less. He said the two back drains are clogged. You can try sticking a small flexible wire down the front two yourself, then pour water down to see if it drains properly out the bottom of the car. When I looked I didn't see the two back sunroof drains, but my mechanic said they were clogged with leaves, you might be able to clear these yourself too. I would have never guessed that it was the sunroof causing this, because you don't see the water leak around the sunroof, you only see the water backing up on the floor. Don't take it to the dealership, it's a simple job and they will rip you off.

2003 suburban passenger side carpet gets wet when it rains


Just fixed the same issue on our 2004 Suburban. Turned out it was just that the drain for the rear A/C was clogged with dirt (located right behind right rear tire -- above the exhaust pipe). All it took was a paperclip, straightened out, poking gently in this narrow rubber ****... and the water came gushing out (floor was wet at the time). If you do it when the floor is dry, you would have to turn on the rear A/C for a while and make sure the condensate drips out of the drain.

Water leaking in by passenger side!!!!!!


Most likely the sunroof drains are clogged. It happened to mine (and my friend who has the same car), the floormats and floors were soaked, especially behind the drivers side. Volvo wanted to charge me $550 to clear them out and dry out the floors. Instead I took it home, rolled down the windows, parked it in the sun and let it dry out. Then I found a mechanic who blew out the drains with compressed air for only $20. He had originally quoted me $50-100, but ended up doing it for less. He said the two back drains were clogged. You can try sticking a small flexible wire down the front two yourself, then pour water down to see if it drains properly out the bottom of the car.

I would have never guessed that it was the sunroof causing this, because you don't see the water leak around the sunroof, you only see the water backing up on the floor. It has to do with the way the sunroof drains drain down the side panels of your car. Don't take it to the dealership, it's a simple job and they will rip you off.

Timing chain cover cracked


A cracked cover will not cause a leak. Overtightening the cover will cause a problem or perhaps they mishandled it and broke it and tried to put it back on. The seals around the camshafts may be at fault. When they replaced the fuel pump they should not have messed with this so I would have them explain what they did.

Water under driver side floor


It may be due to the air conditioning hose being blocked. Therefore the water must be backing up into the vehicle, under the carpets and into the back seats instead of flowing out
