Check the seal around the hatch. It is most likely worn or torn causing the leak.

1994 Saab 900s How to tell if I may have a cracked radiator


Radiator, water pump seal, overflow bottle? How much fluid left in the rad? If it's a rad or water pump, cheaper replacements should be possible. The other thing that will cause it to overheat is the thermostat... if you can get heat inside the car when running, it's probably okay. A bad pump seal will leak pretty quickly, and should be easy to see when the car is running. Get a rebuilt one!

Saab 93 convertable, Rain water fills the drivers footwell when the car is parked downhill.


I am not sure if it is the same problem I had with my '04 93 SS, but there is a cabin air filter that has a drain next to it that allows the rain water to run down to the ground. Mine was clogged up with leaves and other junk which caused the rain water to leak through the filter into the cabin. Being that yours is a different body style, your filter may be on the drivers side which would cause this. I would try to look up where your Cabin Air Filter is and try to clean the drain.

Just bought a used 2008 Aveo5. When it rains,


being 2008, is should still be under the warranty. Take it to the car wash and use one of the high pressure washing machine and see where is coming in from. more likely will be the tail light. if its hatchback have someone sit in the back with a flash light and while spraying the water have that person observing the leaks.

I have a 2 year old SAAB Sport Combi. After driving through heavy rains, we discovered a big puddle of water on the floorboard behind the passenger seat. Mechanic could not find anything wrong with...


Water leaks can be difficult to find, so mechanic may not be at fault. You have to be ready to spend some time on the problem. To find it you are on the right track weith seals but not with radiator. If it only occurs in heavy rain radiator or coolant is not a factor. WEhat you need to do is start at like the rear or front door and check the weather strips. If they all look fine have all windows up in car. Have one person in the car with a flash light. The other person should be outside the car with a water hose. Have the person outside start at a point and spray the car with the hose. While inside person checks for water coming in. This has to be done moving the hose slowly so you can look and find leak. This can take some time thats why you should try to locate leak yourself even if you pay someone to repair it instead of repairing yourself. Finding it can be expensive due to not knowing how long it will take to find.

Mazda 323f: Rain water leak into cabin on drivers side, low down.


I am fixing a similar problem on my daughter's 2002 323 Hatchback (Australian BJ model, RH drive) at the moment. Rainwater comes in from above the clutch pedal.

If you look down thru the vents in front of the windshield near the wipers, you will see a spot-welded body seam running across the bottom of that recess. This is where hers is leaking. I originally sealed it with a RTV silicone sealant which fixed the problem but after approximately 6 months it has started leaking again. I am going to remove the silicone and seal over the seam with a brushable bitumen -type sealer.

Remove windscreen wipers and the vent panel for easy access to the area.
