Question about 1999 Volvo V70

1 Answer

Right windshield post rusting. What causes this? Three of the little post that secure the roof trim on have rusted off and the roof trim blew off. The post itself has a heavy scale of rust, but I don't think it is leaking into the passenger cabin yet. Was there a recall on this? Thanks for you help... Oatmeal

2006 dodge durango that does not have a sun roof that leaks water on the Head liner and seat belt and floor when it rains or I go thru car wash? What could cause this?


I just Googled a picture.
There is a roof rack type trim on the roof.
Water flows downhill
3 possible sources:
- window trim
- windshield
- roof trim
I would be suspecting the roof trim. Determine how it is attached. Remove it. Clean the roof and all parts of the trim that contect the roof. Apply sealant in appropriate locations. Re- install roof trim.
Test
No leak!
Ta-Da!

I asked about how to remove trim over windshield. My question should be can the outside trim over windshield be reused after removing to stop windshield leak.


I don't know about your Mitsubishi but generally windscreen trim is laid loose around the screen and theoretically can be reused. In practice the windscreen adhesive bead usually spreads and catches the trim in places effectively placing an element of doubt over the fact.
If a new trim isn't readily available or is prohibitively expensive, as long as care is taken to leave the visible part undamaged when cutting out the old screen or removing the trim the windscreen adhesive is so good it will bond even damaged trim and can be held securely.

One problem with reusing trim is when attempting to refit it will often be found to be too short. Contaminants from the atmosphere and UV exposure does tend to alter the properties of plastic. Once the trim has been removed shrinkage can sometimes be severe and rapid.

Windscreen water leaks should be none-existent with bonded screens but when windscreens must be replaced the fitters usually manage to scratch the paintwork in the screen recess and have no time or will to repaint. The adhesive bead rarely covers the exposed steel and as the trim is not designed to keep water out rust soon begins to attack and eventually destroys part of the windscreen bond and even sometimes eats through the steel into the windscreen pillar or roof.

2005 Scion xB rain water leaking into Passenger side floor board


Most likely cause is a leaky windshield seal. This can be caused normally by one of three things.
(1) Improperly installed windshield
(2) Rusting metal at seal location
(3) Overpressure blowout of the seal caused by excessively loud bass from audio system (happens more often than you may believe).

Re-sealing the windshield will solve the water problem once you determine the cause.

My 1995 chrysler lebaron gets water on the passenger side floor when it rains


I've had many a vehicle do that. If you have any trim around the windshield or up the pillars, it can get rust holes right through and you won't discover them until those trim pieces are removed

Under the Window trim you have a rusting hole rain run in there and down the side posts to the floor. Take the trim off and get some Goop and fill the holes and put the trim back on.

Water on pass side floor every time it rains think air vent plugged looking for a drain for air vent


check the windshield posts from the inside remove the front a pillars then poor water over the windshield edges accross the top of the roof. Sometimes rust forms between the windshield urethane and the metal surface where the windshield seals. If you see water coming down the post you need to check all the roof seam sealer points for pinholes and under the windshield urethane. You can do this next time you change your windshield. Next check for leaves stuck in the drains of the cowl venting and make sure the drains are free to drain.

When it rains my information center located in the middle roof leeks really bad


The two options for the leak will be the antenna seal to the roof or the windshield just forward of the information center.
Does it leak only when your driving or will it leak when the vehicle is setting in the driveway?
If it is leaking when setting in the driveway, I would suspect the antenna seal.
If it leaks while driving, check the windshield seal.
You can use a garden hose to isolate the leak.
Good luck, let me know.

Windshield removel


First you will need a chrome removal tool KD 2038 or similar. You slide it under the edge of the trim between trim and glass, and slide up or down until you can make contact with clip. This tool will pull the clip back and let the trim pop loose. Now removing the glass. You need to be very careful. I wear a pair of heavy leather gloves while cutting the glass out. I have a Blue Point brand # YA 109A cutter from Snap On but I'm sure you could find it in another brand. You get it worked under the edge of the glass and pull. I guess fine wire like piano wire will work but have never tried it.
You might also find that one of your glass people does a little work on the side and have them drop by and cut it out for you.
Good Luck and be careful
