Electrics go haywire in heavy rain fine weather it seems ok


The obvious conclusion is that a portion of wiring that has lost its insulation, or a junction box that has lots protective covering, is exposed to the rain. You need someone to investigate where that has occurred.

Water dripping onto passenger side floor from the inside passenger assist handle.


Does your car have a sun (or moon) roof? A leak in a sunroof will sometimes follow the roof over to the door post and down to the floor were the water will accumulate. This can be hard to find sometimes but having one person spraying water on the roof while a second one checks the inside of the vehicle you may be able to pinpoint the leak.
Hope this helps.

Were are the sunroof drain holes on a 1995 960 volvo wagon


They are in each corner of the sunroof "cartridge". The way to tell if they work is to open the sunroof and slowly pour a little water in each corner. The front corners should drain down behind the front wheels. The rear corners should drain down in front of the rear wheels.

The most likely scenario is that there are leaves and dirt in the drains, so you want to clear that out. You can use a sturdy nylon line (like nylon fishtape) to gently free up the drains. The front ones are relatively easy to get to from the top of the car with the sunroof open (you can see the holes with a flashlight).

The rear ones are easier to get to from the rear of the car. If you open the panels on the side in the tailgate, you'll see a little black vent/valve with a hose attached to it. Pry that off gently, then feed the nylon line backwards up there and push back and forth a bit, then pour some water down the sunroof to flush it.

Another thing that can happen is that the hose has come apart. The front ones are easy to get to behind the A-pillar trim.
The rear ones have a union right behind the rear doors over the door/rear window. You might have to drop the C pillar trim and possibly the headliner, to be able to get to that.

The water should tell you though. If the hoses are intact, water will come out each corner of the car - then they're probably just plugged.

If this was after a HEAVY rain, you might want to add a new seal to the sunroof too. That will seal it to the roof and let in less water, leaving the hoses more able to drain the water away.

You can also park the car on an incline if you don't have time to work on it now. If it drains fine from the front drains, park the car nose down, even if it's a very little slope, the water won't drip through your dome light. :D

Why does my forester roof leak?


Once source of leaks is the rubber tube that runs from the roof line to the rear hatch, and contains the rego plate light, rear window heater and locking circuits. Look at the seals under the hatch hinges. If there's nothing obvious, pull some of the internal headers to see where the water is coming from. May still be the moon roof. Water will run down any available slope.

Renault Clio sport R Reg - leaking manual sunroof


word_answers.gif Betta Windsrceens Stockport have been repairing sunroofs for 30 years. What i will tell you is both the mk1 and mk2 clios have a problem with the sunroofs.
The sunroof needs to be taken out cleaned damming seal on frame removed and fitted back with silicone sealer excess sealer clean of with white sprite no need to remove head lineing if fitted with 10 mm bolts use a ratchet spanner. Mk1 clios also leak from the arial remove and reseal. And mk1 & mk2 have a problem with the bulk head filling up with water. Open bonnet on the back of the bulk head is a hose about 6 inches long which gets blocked un block and the water can drain like it did the day the car left the factory. bettabob

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.

The sunroof drainage gets blocked.

your footwells will fill with water - even under your seats right to the back seats footwells

See two 10mm holes in front sides when sunroof is open.
a) push a flexible cable down from the top - it comes out just behind the front wheels. (use electric three core cable - or TV aerial cable - a hanger is too short) - you need about a metre and a half)
b) remove the inner mudgaurd behind the front wheels (2 screws) you will see the end of the plastic drainage pipes - remove the blocked black rubber cup at the end of these - why they are there is anybody's guess)
