Question about Buick LeSabre

2 Answers

2004 Buick Lesabre - After rain storms, I notice that the carpet behind the drivers seat is soaking wet. Water is leaking in from somewhere. My mechanic confirmed that it is not coming in from the bottom, but cannot determine how the water is getting in. Help! Thanks.

It depends on if you have a sunroof, 2/4 door, if it only happens when you drive it, etc.

A common problem is rain leaks between the door glass and rubber seal. It is supposed to then drain out holes in the bottom of the door. But these holes are small and easily get clogged up. Then the door fills to the point is leaks over the metal and behind the inner door panel.

It is easy to tell.
You can take the door panel off, but you don't have to.
If you use the garden hose, eventually the door will fill up and you can see if it overflows from the back seat.

If it only leaks if you drive the car, then it is usually forced spray in the top of the wheel well, that you can't see.

If you have a sunroof, the drain tube for that can leak and fill up the chassis channels.

Wet driver side floor


I used to get water in my trunk when it rained hard. I re-caulked the rear window and it stopped. A water leak has a capillary effect meaning it will follow ridge lines and can appear in unlikely areas after it flows downward. I sometimes get water on my driver side door when I wash the car and spray sideways to rinse. I would check all your rubber seals around the windshields and doors.

Buick passenger side front and rear carpets soaking wet


The two most common causes are rain water leaking in or the ac drain being clogged up. I would vote for rain water if the entire carpet area is wet.
Could be coming in around the windshield, or one of the door gaskets.

Water leaking into 2005 Camry 6 cyl under carpet drivers side.


I think that I can help you. It sounds like your drain-tube is plugged up. Get in the passenger side, and pull the carpet back from under the glove box. Look for a black rubber pipe that goes from a black box, and pokes thru the firewall, on the passenger side. Remove the hose from the box, and have a container ready to catch water. If water comes out of the black box, your drain hose is plugged up. Clean out the clog, and you will be golden.

Rear floorboard behind driver set wet after rain


do you have a sun roof, if so start there, because there are two hoses at the back corners of the roof pan that allow water to drain, if they leak, they will soak the rear floorboards, and if not that check the door jam seals.(note that if the plugs on the floor are missing that will be verry hard not to have wet carpet)........let me know?

Pontiac Montana 2004 Leak


I turned on the fan inside and closed everything up, went outside and poured soapy water around everywhere. I found bubbles at the mirrors and and the top of the windshield. Also a "Tech" told me that under the door rubber at the driver and passenger sides there is a piece of tape that is supposed to cover two assembly holes on either side but doesn't, so I caulked it and solved the leak that comes out the map lights. I also found that there was a crack in the sealer along the firewall to passenger inside fender allowing water to collect int the wiring channel causing the dreaded "lock" problem, which I had fixed by the dealer but they didn't fix the leak. The dealers and "Jet-set Execs"are the reason GM is hurting as their vans are OK. The fix was spraying RV Roof\Gutter sealant from the front after removing the wiper cover and spraying waaay in. Now I need to fix the one on the front that comes in above the passengers left foot and makes a spiders haven behind the centre cowl. Jim
