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.

WATER LEAKS ON FLOOR


If it leaks when it is raining then the windscreen seal is faulty. Depending how bad the leak is it maybe fixed by applying sealant around the windscreen where it leak occurs otherwise the windscreen needs to be removed and resealed.
If the water leak is from the heater then it could be the heating coil or a leaking heater pipe. You need to trace the source of the leak and fix or get a motor mechanic to fix this leak.

Water leaks into the vehicle on the front,


It could be a plain old fashioned leak around the windscreen - difficult to find but try sitting in the car while somebody plays a water hose over the windscreen.

It could also be a blocked drain in the ventilation system - fresh air is normally drawn in to a car via vents at the bottom of the windscreen. These vents normally lead to a "box" like structure where any water that enters the vents drops to the bottom and then drains away via a short hose that runs to somewhere underneath the car.
If the drain outlet or hose gets blocked (by leaves for example), it can cause the box to fill with water to the point where it can leak out in to the passenger area.

Hope this helps you find the problem.

Water drips from heater motor during rain. how to stop this? 2005 dakota


Most likely your windscreen is leaking and the water is tracking past the heater motor. The solution is to have the windscreen removed and resealed. Removing the windscreen without cracking it is difficult and most windscreen fitters do it at your risk so be prepared for a new windscreen. In case the water is tracking via a door seal you could tape around the winscreen and try a hose test to pinpoint the problem.

Water in passenger footwell of ford mondeo zetec 2001.


I had the same problem. Take note of black plastic trim piece that runs along the bottom of the windshield. On the passenger side there is a pan type attachment to this piece of trim; it can become detached from the trim. In this case it needs to be positioned under the lower lip of the windshield.
