Question about 2001 Pontiac Sunfire

1 Answer

2001 Pontiac Sunfire passenger floor is soaking wet after rain.

The floor of my daughter's 2001 Pontiac Sunfire is constantly soaked on the driver's side. I'm guessing her sunroof is leaking somehow. Anyone have any advice on how to fix this?

    Thanks MNfisherman! - It happens when the air is off - so would that still apply? Any suggestions on how to check the weatherstripping? We tried a hose/spray but you can't "see" the leak.



    Appreciate the feedback!!

    Flat48 - we have not checked that and I will definitely do that. But would it only happen when it is raining?? It does dry out in between.



    Thanks for the input!

    Have you checked the heater core for leaks? Check the floorboard up closer to the firewall and see if it is wet higher up, if so then I would say heater core leak or possibly line leaking. I would rule out sunroof since it would be leaking onto seats. Check weather striping around windshield on passenger side for obvious damage or cupping.

This is either two things. 1: The air conditioner condenser is leaking and will have to be siliconed, or you have a bead door or other weather stip that is allowing water in.

    If it happens when it is dry outside, than the air conditoner condenser is probably leaking and will need to be sealed. They also have a drain hose on them which may be plugged

passenger side floor? There is a small tube that directs the condensation from the AC to the ground.If this tube has gotten plugged or moved the water would end up on the floor. Should be able to see this tube sticking out of the bottom of the heater /ac module.

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.

My 2006 pontiac g6 is leaking water and we dont know where it is coming from. the doors and windows are all dry. the floor is completely soaked


you will need to pull down the headliner around the sunroof, the drain tubes in the four corners come off constantly, I usually glue them back on to prevent this problem from recurring
