1999 Chrysler Concorde for boards getting wet upfront everytime it rains

check the cowling at the base of the windshield outside the car by the hood. this can be plugged by debris and need to be cleaned out. if the water can`t drain out the drain holes it will have to go somewhere and that is usually inside the car. the cowling is one way outside air is passed into the car. you will have to remove the cowling to clean out and make sure the drain holes are not plugged.

Rain leaks

NO, it is most likely getting in through the cowl vent area under the wipers. Normally the water drains out the inner fender, but if its clogged with leaves and pine needles, it wont drain and will fill up past the cool air intake and get into the cabin. I would pull the cowl vent grille and make sure the drains are not clogged.

turn wiper on until straight up then turn off ignition.
Open hood and disconnect the hard washer hose from the clips on the passenger side cowling.

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.

Leaking bad on passenger side front when raining. Windshield installer said it didn't need WS but some kind of an Air Box under the hood on pass.side. Can you tell me what this part is and does it have to...

If it is leaking when it rains then your drain just needs to be cleaned out.Where you windshield meets the hood there should be a plastic cowl.This is where the air intakes for your heat/AC there should be a drain for the water to run out but is posibly pluged with dead leaves and crud.If you look under the hood on the passinger side firewall there should be a short rubber hose called the condensation drain.Mave have to take it some where to have then blow some air thru it to try and unglog it.

The passenger side of the car on the floor front and back gets wet only when it rains i think its coming from the front of the car (hood) what do i do thanks!

I woul look to see if the cowl drains on wither side of the cowl panel are clear form leaves and dirt. When it is dry, pour water into the cowl vent, under the hood. Water should drain out behind each tire, from the body. Ithe water does not run out, you will need to remove the cowl, and clean out the drains.
