Rain or shine water on front & rear floor of '98 Sunfire convertible; seats & interior dry. Removed heater core but water still there. AC needs charging so not using it.


My sister's and my brothers GM hardtops both leaked like yours is doing.
My sister got hers fixed, my brother opted not to do so.
The leaks turned out to be body leaks from the factory from water running in body openings at the windows and body joints.
I believe my sister had to have the fenders pulled off to fix it.
God bless your efforts.

04 Mustang V6: The convertable top is leaking somewhere which causes water to pool behind drivers seat. Where should I start?


The best way to find this leak is to use a waterhose, make sure inside is dry them start a slow water spary at the front window and only front glass it is better to have someone inside with a light looking to see a stream coming in, after a while and no leak found start moving up to the top and work your way to rear glass but do this slowly to pinpoint the leak the preson inside must look around also.

The convertible roof leaks and also needs a


If you need a manual, you need a factory manual. Aftermarket manuals seldom address the convertible top.
Convertible tops seldom leak till they are 5-6 yrars old unless the material is defective.
Your problem is probably weatherstrips.
Either they are damaged or out of place.
Door window adjustment will also cause a leak at the weatherstrip.
If the water is in the rear of the car, you probably have plugged drains.
Convertibles leak at the rear from new. there is a gutter that directs the water to drain holes near the rear wheels. If the drains get plugged, the water will seep into the rear carpet or trunk.
Solution...clear the drains.

1996 Chryslser Sebring Convertible leaks on left side from rain


Water goes between the front and rear window and is supposed to go through a trough and drain out of the bottom of the car. often the drains along the bottom (4 very small slits) get clogged and water will back up into the floorboards. just drive a flat head screwdriver in these slits and it will let the water out! (watch out about 2 gallons came out of mine!)

Water on rear floorboards


Under the car are drainvalves in the rockers.
these are small slits with a rubber valve in it, located just before the rear wheel and after the front wheel.
These are stuck, You can open them up by just putting You finger or a screwdriver in there.
I had the same problem, causes water and bad smell in Your car.
This is common by these types of convertibles, and caused by dirt washed in there from rain etc.
No big deal to solve.

To replace weather seals and rear window.


I'm working on the rear window problem with my car -- the convertible top shop told me about options to replace the window (including the fabric, etc around it) or replacing the entire top (the window unit + outside fabric). I'm now looking into temporary fixes...

Meanwhile -- about the water under the seat -- my drain holes were plugged -- they unplugged them for me -- the water going through the window was carrying debris down and plugged them up -- so check that out so at least water won't sit there. YUCK! I'm tired of bailing.

I would like to hear if you found a solution.

Convertible leaks


Look for a plugged drain at both rear side panels. Water from the top can enter the car, but it is then discharged out thru drains. If the drains are clogged, you will have this problem. Same for any other Toyota convertible.
