Question about 2003 Toyota 4Runner
We have a 2004 Freestar. When it rains the ceiling leaks around the lights and sunglasses holder. It's very aggravating! Had it checked at the Ford shop and they can't figure it out. We've sealed the luggage rack many times inside at the screws and around the outside edges of the rack itself. Still does it. I am worried about rust damage or worse. Help!
It is the top edge of the windshield ... for sure.
The water that enters through there will travel along the roof liner until it finds an opening to pour out of (the glasses holder).
1. Do not use water to find the leak....
2. best thing is to remove the chrome that surrounds the windshield top edge, clean the area underneath.
3. Apply a good silicone sealant (from AutoZone $10).
4. Your dealer knows it is the windshield.
5. If you must test for a leak, it is best to use a FOG test. A fog test produces thick, odorless white smoke.
6. You can get creative if you know someone with a fog machine like musicians (bands) use.... and a flashlight.
It IS the windshield...
Hope this helps!

I was an expert at water leaks to find the source or sources of the leak you will need 2 people and a flashlight as well as a garden-hose to test one person inside the vehicle and one working the hose starting from the very lowest point of the issue and working your way up to the top giving adequate time for the water to penetrate the area of entry it may take a few minutes to a few hours but i assure you you will locate it it may come from the windshield as is in most cases the source , dont automatically assume its the luggage rack until you determine so ....you may even need t remove the headliner to properly locate it then when found repair as needed and continue to look for another leak as more than one can be at hand ...i truly hope this works for you
