2005 Landcruiser 100 Water getting in to rear cabin somehow?
Had new rubber seal replaced around boot door as water was some how getting in and under carpet when car not being driven. Since being replaced water is still getting in. Anyone with similar problem some tips would be much appreciated. Toyota NZ haven't been much help so far. cheers
Re: 2005 Landcruiser 100 Water getting in to rear cabin...
Which carpet is wet? Front or rear? Have you had the windshield replaced? I had a similar problem after the windshield was replaced. They did not use enough sealant at the bottom of the glass and when it rained the water from the cowl area would come under the glass and get the carpet wet.

Check the rubber seals around the boot edges and the tailgate glass. Also check the tailgate is fitted straight and isn't warped. The water could be getting in at one position and running along grooves and channels to the lowest point, (the latch). Another feature worth checking is the pipework for the rear washer. They can leak. Anything that is bolted to the tailgate is a place where water can get in.
Remove the door inner trim and check that the water proof plastic is sealed around all the openings in the metal. Check the drain holes under the door outside the rubber seal. Check and adjust the door to touch the seal all the way around.
Since you do have exhaust smell in your cabin,I suggest to check the rubber sealer at the rear boot door. As the exhaust end is at the rear boot door side, it is the only place which allow the smell to get in the cabin,since the rubber sealer is either broken,cracked or softened and do not seal well the boot.
For water leaking inside the rear door panel, I'll suggest you check and replace the black rubber/foamy seal that is part of the high-mounted-rear light assembly.
It gets weak over time and soaks water, thereby allowing water seep into the booth lining and also into the underlay of the carpet.
If you have a cracked rear-light (the one attached to the boot hatch), you may also get a leak.
Change this rubber seal/ gasket. I used an old rubber carpet to make a gasket to fit the light assembly, and it stopped the leakage.
Hope this helps.
close all the windowes and doors and turn your heater blower motor on high and make a solution of liquid dish soap and water and use a paint brush to apply the solution to all areas and you should find any leaks that way.
Well, you are on the right path; the rubber seal around the windshield could indeed be deteriorating...what may be happening is the water is coming through the cowling and pooling up on the seal there...as the water sits, the seal deteriorates and eventually you will see water like you are now.
My recommendation to you is to take your Edge to a shop and ask them to look for a leak at the bottom seal of the windshield.
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.
You may have a bad door seal strip. Check the rubber seal that goes around the door frame on the body and make sure it's first in place correctly, and secondly not torn, ripped or damaged. also make sure your window seals are good too. Good Luck
