SOURCE: 1986 buick century ltd interior front passenger water leak

Tricky, tricky, tricky...Well, if the heater core and all connecting hoses are not leaking, the only other place that I could see water coming from would be a leaky windshield. Have you looked up around the windshield to see if there is any moisture around the trim? If the heater core and hoses aren't leaking, and the windshield isn't leaking either, the only other possibility that I can think of would be that perhaps your passenger side door has bad weatherstripping/seal. There just isn't anywhere else for it to be coming in. It kind of bites that you had to replace the heater core if it does turn out to be a leaky window or door seal, but at least you can comfort yourself in thinking that you have a 1986 Buick that eventually would have needed a new heater core, probably sooner rather than later, and now you wont have to worry about it for as long as you'll own that car. Just be glad that you were able to get it replaced at a far more convenient time than having to get stranded somewhere or a time when you didn't have the funds to do so. Hope this helps. Try to stay dry and have a great day!

SOURCE: sunroof leak

there are drain hoses on all all four corners of the sunroof. to access the front ones, remove the front inner fender liners. you'll probably see a plastic grommet/spout that the drain hose attaches to. in the rear, remove the trunk liners on the side. you should see the drain hoses running down the inside of the quarter panel.

Taste the water and if it is sweet it is coolant leaking from the heater core. If it does not taste sweet it is a leak somewhere else. What you suspect is very possible. Start by making sure the drain hose is clear an not clogged. Then check the window gasket. A water hose left running on the window slightly will tell you where the leak is coming from.

SOURCE: 2000 buick century rain water leak: The rain

turn wiper on until straight up then turn off ignition.
Open hood and disconnect the hard washer hose from the clips on the passenger side cowling.
remove the 3 plastic screw/ clips that hold the cowling in place and remove it.
Check the cabin filter is properly seated .. (probably needs replacement anyway).
Most of type of these cars (GM) have the same issue with the cabin filter If the gasket wears out or it;s not seated properly or missing completely water enters through the vent

SOURCE: water leaks on passenger side floor board when run

You need to carefully look just at or slightly below bottom of the air conditioner housing on the engine side of the firewall. Probably more visible from underneath the car. What you are looking for is a small rubber stub hose that sticks out from the wall. If that gets plugged (it's a drain for condensation) water will back up into the housing and leak on the floor. usually you can clear it by rolling the end between your fingers or sticking s short object in the end (not too long or too hard or you can punch a hole in the evaporator or heater core). if you have a problem finding it, cruise through a parking lot 'till you see a car like yours and ask to look.... Make sure their a/c works and drains though so you can find it.
It's best to look with the engine and ac on so it's actually working. NEVER put your hands into the engine bay when the engine is running though!!!

2003 STS cadillac leaking water on both driver and passenger floor boards


It could be the sun roof. It also could be clogged drains from the sun roof. It may also be door seals Leaking. It could also be leaking around the bottom of the windshield. A good way to narrow it down is to get inside the car and have someone spray the outside of the car with a water hose. while you look for water leaking inside of the car. If it does it while the ac is on may be a clogged ac drain. however it usually just leaks on passenger side when it is that. well good luck.

Sounds like the windshield is leaking. Run water over the windshield and have someone get inside car and look for the leak. Alternatively take it to a reputable windshield repair shop and have them check it.

Leaking water


Yeah ford would just replace it , You need a company that installs sun roofs they may well have just the seals for this sun roof , I would google sunroof installers in you area and see if there is one local who will fix this . I would say this is also not helping with you other problems .

Water in floor board passenger side of 2001 jeep grand cherokee. Could it be the sun room drain. If so where is it located?


I had the same problem with my jeep. If you aren't positive that it is your sun roof check to make sure that your doors are shutting completely. One way to check is by pouring water along the crack where your door meets the body of your car. My sun roof as well as my drivers side door had a leak in them and instead of getting the sun roof fixed I had sealant put around the rim of the window and I haven't had any problems since.

Water leak rear floor driver's side as well as floor back of passenger. Drain lines from sun roof are clear. No rear end accidents. Any ideas? So far dealer cannot find a problem. 2007 Camry Hybrid


Roof drains may seem clear,but are the drain hoses,actually on the roof window frame.
Remove the head liner to be sure

Why can't the dealer use a dye type test or smoke tester. The smoke doesn't just have to be used for EVAP, that it was designed for. And you wonder why I do all my own work?

Water on floor board


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).
