Guess you may not have a carport or garage to shelter it in. Sometimes a heater core can put out moisture but you will find antifreeze on a carpet. Ventilation can work both ways to increase or decrease moisture. Kind of like a can sweating inside.

Hard to say what is going on. Sometimes a large open bag of rice can absorb moisture. Most air conditioners can dry the air inside a vehicle.

more then likely the a/c drain is not draining, it is located on the passenger side underneath the car. You will need to take a piece of wire or pipe cleaner to unclog the drain, it will becoming through the fire wall a tube or a nipple. Hope this helps tim

My 2000 lincoln towncar, 2000, gets soak and wet on the floorboards every time it rains hard. I've been told it has something to do with the moon roof vents. I don't know what to do about it


Clear the drain tubes with compressed air. one on each side of the window at the back. But they can only let so much water out. If the seal on the window is bad, they won't be able to handle all the water, will leak inside. Those seals aren't cheap and are a pain to replace. If you don't use or need it to open. Shut it and silicone it on top. This will stop your problem.

that sounds reasonable-take the roof rack off-seal the bolts and any holes with 3M black strip caulk -wrap a small amount around the bolts or holes and you should be golden-cheers Denny

02 1800 petrol vectra leaking in rain water.


check the drain hole in under the front window voth side you will probably find a lot of leaves and muck in there clean this out. if sun roof fitted after you do this blow out the muck in there and re do the front pars again. check the wiring seals are ok and that there is no rust on the walls inside there. it should stop now. also this can happen in vectras to on the roof near to the rear doors on both sides there is a plastic cover. take them off and reseal them at same time put the plastic bit back on so the sealant holds them in place the check the seal in the boot just after the part just sealed there is to gromets with the wire coming out make sure they are in good and sealed and the seal on the part from roof to boot don't have splits in the seal if it has reseal them. had to do this to father in laws as the boot started growing mushrooms and mould. also check the seal on the arial if fitted to the roof.

I have a water leak in the back of the Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.1 ltd 2000, wet carpet with water going in to the spare wheel compartment


Hi Wayne,

I checked for Technical Service Bulletins (TSBs) for your vehicle to see if there are any "known" problems with water leaks. The only bulletin I found was about the sunroof (if equipped) leaking into the passenger compartment.

Since there are no known problems for leaks in the rear, you will just have to do some diagnosis. Water leaks can be very evasive. They can originate in one place and accumulate water in another place. Here are some tips:

First, check the seals around your rear door and window. If there are any cuts or damage to the seals, this is most likely your problem.

You may need to remove the inner trim pieces from both the door and from the vehicle sides. Then run a hose over the top of the vehicle and over the rear door to see if you can see any water running on the inside. Be sure and look for water coming down from the roof area. Sometimes the mouldings and sealing material along the roof seams will leak. If this is the case, it will run down the inside wall and end up in the spare tire well. If you cannot find it this way, it may be necessary to remove the seats and ALL the inside trim so the headliner can be removed. I have seen roof leaks that are originating near the front that follow the roof reinforcement channel all the way to the rear. There are holes in the roof reinforcement chanel where you can look inside with a mirror and a flashlight (the headliner must be removed for this).

Another likely place for a leak is along the sides of the roof where the roof racks attach (if your Jeep is equipped with them).

If you find a leak in one of the seams, it is best to repair it with some (water-based) tub and tile caulk or (oil or water-based) plumber's dope. It is not recommended that you use silicone based RTV sealer because this contains acids that can cause the sheet metal to corrode and you will end-up with a worse problem in the long run.

I hope this helps you to get it figured out.

Try this: Clean all of the dirt out of your vacuum cleaner and connect the hose to the discharge side of the vacuum.
Close everything windows etc on the vehicle but leave one window open enough to put the pressure producing hose through then using wide removable masking tape seal up the rest of the window opening. Turn the vacuum on and inspect all of suspected leak areas of the vehicle.
Anyplace there is a leak you will feel air escaping.

My 1999 Toyota Avalon has a leak that I can't find. When it rains the floor boards on the passenger side are both wet. I have a sun roof so how are the floor boards getting wet and how do I fix it?


There are 2 'weep' holes where tubes come out of the firewall and sometimes they get plugged. Get some compressed air and blow them out.

Also, inside the vehicle, there is a plastic pan that catches all water that might come down from the evaporator or leak from the outside into the interior of the car when the seal is not good between the firewall and the plastic pan that spans from the left to the right of the car under the dash board.

Get some expanding foam in a can and spray it up against the juncture between the firewall and the plastic water pan. This should seal out the problem if done properly.

Over time, the original foam seal goes bad and can actually flake away.

You mentioned the sunroof. Make sure that all the gaskets and that the sunroof does not leak onto the floor. This can be another source of wetness for your vehicle.

Try testing it by spraying water down from a hose to the top of the vehicle, or dumping a bucket of water all at once on the top of the roof. If it leaks, try using silicon sealant to seal any gaps that may exist in the sunroof.

Hope this helps.

Leak in car


Hi,
This is probably the sunroof seal itself, and are stupidly expensive.
Try this as a first shot -
Clean the seal with the roof open fully to remove any moss algae or dampness. Let it dry out properly.
Next, Use a silicone product for tyres to make them look glossy. This is formulated to help rubber retain it's flexibility - and is also an excellent moisture repellant.

You can close the roof while still wet with the stuff. It won't matter.

I did mine last winter when I had a wet drivers seat due to leaks.
No problems since.

If this works for you too, Please rate as Fixya so others may follow. Thanks.
