It may have a metal band in it to help it hold its shape and provide some reinforcement.

I have a 2006 chevrolet HHR and i keep getting water in the driver floor board, what's happening?

check that the plastic membrane under the door trim is properly stuck over all the openings in the metal part of the door. This stops the water from running down the window and straight into the door on to the trim and into the car. Under the door outside the door rubber seal are a series of holes to let the water run out side.. They block up and the door becomes like a small container and the water builds up and will flow inside . Clean out with something like a paddle pop stick

98 buick rear right window works perfect when it works , but some times seems to have no power to switch and wont go up an down

My left rear window worked intermittantly and then stopped completely.
I found a broken wire inside the harness where the door hinges. With the door open, I had to pull back the rubber boot from the sheet metal to expose the wires. I soldered some connectors on the ends of the broken pieces an then taped it well. It looked like it had been pinched at some point, but I'm not sure why since it is fairly well protected. I guess it had just bent too many times.

I smell exhaust fumes while driving my 2000 vw golf in the cab.The windows at this time are up.What could cause this problem? The exhaust system has no holes in the pipes.The engine air filter is new.the...

More likely, is a bad rubber seal in the rear deck lid or on any back doors (4-door). The rear of the car experiences positive air pressure due air flow over the car and can force fumes past a defective or damaged seal. Good luck!

2002 suburban has leak in driver side rear floor. Cannot see where water would be coming from?

We had same--water on driver side rear floor (soaked!). Driver side front floor seemed dry until feeling UNDER rug, was slightly damp. We found the location of TWO leaks causing this.

Leak #1 was through the parking brake line/cable seal; Recaulked with silicone. Removed plastic trim on floor between floor and door to reveal metal channel filled with water.

Leak #2 was where the door meets the car, near the hinge. It was the accordian-looking tube housing the wiring for the door. The big, rubber, circular plug connecting it to the main part of the car had come loose and water ran down through that, into the SAME metal channel filled with water from leak #1; will seal with silicone.

Note: We found that the channel filled extensively near the front door, BUT the carpet edge from the floor near the rear seat was dipping into it, wicking it up to the rear floor. Also, upon acceleration, the water in the channel gushed toward the back, thus soaking the rear carpet.

These leaks were found by removing all plastic trim (covering edges of carpet by doors), then one of us pouring water into specific areas of the exterior of the vehicle, and the other one watching closely with a flashlight for any signs of dripping.

Front windows freeze shut nearly every day when temperature below 25 degrees

You could try applying silicone spray on the rubber seals around the window. This usually helps prevent them from freezing and actually cleans and conditions the seals.

Condensation on the inside of the windows

common problems to all beetles, its common to all old rubber seals eventrually you will need to replace front and the rear rubber seal, they do get old deteriate over times, they are pain to do it yourself, most body shop can replace the seal for you for little to nonthing. seal are also cheap. there's really no electrical straight below the rear window that any moister can damage. before you make that purchase, just make sure all the turn single, brakes and headlight working properly, and the floor pan on both side is not rusted.

Install rear window 2001 cabriolet convertible

Yes the glass does have a runner or rubber seal on it. If you have removed it from the frame and the frame is still strong enough to hold up for a while, then here is how you do it: place the rubber seal on the winow glass, have a piece of strong string (about 24 inches long), place the window on the frame for now (don't push it in yet, just park it on top of the frame, get in the trunk, get the string to pass between the frame and the rubber window seal, use the string to position the rubber seal while someone outside the car pushes firmly on the window (helping you pop it in, inch by inch). You have to work from one corner all the way around the frame until you get back to where you started from.It takes a while, it's frustrating and remember not to remove the string before you are completely done because you'll have to start over from scratch. Also, once done, for good measure, tape some painter's tape (low-level of stickiness) about a 1/4inch from the outside rubber window seal (all the way around) and fill the inside of the rubber seal with a thin layer of clear caulking (bathroom or exterior grade). then just smooth out the rubber seal while the caulking is still wet so as to remove any bumps or uneveness. Repeat once a year and you'll be sure that your Cabby won't leak water from the back window, and won't have a rusty back window frame that rots out eventually.
Hope that helps, Cheers!

Trunk leak

Check for defective spot welds around the plastic inserts on the left and right sides of the trunk. If the spot welds burnt through the metal, there will be holes were water can get in. Use some JB Marine Weld to seal up any holes or cracks in the sheet metal. Also, check the rubber drain holes under those inserts, that are in the sheet metal of the car, to make sure they are not blocked with road dirt. Also, check the weather stripping on the outside of the car, adjacent to the trunk. If the rubber and chrome trim weather stripping is pulling out (on the exterior of the rear quarter panel), then water will leak through the little plastic attaching screws and into the trunk beneath the plastic containers on the left and right front sides of the trunk.
