Hi this is quite a common problem, you have a couple of options you can either go out and buy a new door rubber seal or if it one of those seals where you can get you hand in between two parts of the seal then what you can do is get some thick string and run this in the middle of the seal doing this will pack the seal out a bit and then when the door is shut this will make a lot better seal and it will then stop the water getting in.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

ps the rubber seal isnt to expensive to buy but even a new rubber may still have the same problem as its more to do with the way the door is fitted and it seems it dont push the seal hard enough to prevent water getting in so i have found packing it out with some thick string or twine will push the seal out more and will seal it properly when you shut the door to

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

  6. pan never leaks its glued on day one in the Cami factory with RTV, unless prev. owner fiddled with it. (new oil pump done wrong)
  7. last it the rear oil seal, rear to leak.

there are only 2 way sto find leaks, get it clean, drive short distance.
see what leaks.
or
use the dye kit, a kit with UV lamp and dye, pack.

id do a #! valve cover, the 60k mile inspection , adds one, and most of these cars get on 60k service, ever , so the gaskets are all hard.
and useless on every one ive ever seen.

Each time it rains, I get water leak in the trunk of my audi allroad in the cargo area. How do I fix this problem?


Can't fix anything till you find out where the leak is

Get inside & have someone run the hose on it

Remove whatever trim you have to,to see the water

2001 toyota sienna water leak inside rear door seal


For water leaking inside the rear door panel, I'll suggest you check and replace the black rubber/foamy seal that is part of the high-mounted-rear light assembly.
It gets weak over time and soaks water, thereby allowing water seep into the booth lining and also into the underlay of the carpet.
If you have a cracked rear-light (the one attached to the boot hatch), you may also get a leak.
Change this rubber seal/ gasket. I used an old rubber carpet to make a gasket to fit the light assembly, and it stopped the leakage.
Hope this helps.

My 2005 ford frestar is leaking water in the back hatch are and was wondering were it might be coming from


I had water coming into the rear storage area. Finally found where it the leak was. The plastic panel on which the license plate mounts was leaking around the panel allowing water to run down onto a little ledge area and the enter the rear storage well at the left rear corner of the storage well. I have tightened the nuts that hold the panel against the gasket and if that does not stop it, I will loosen it an put clear silicone seal around the pane. It was hard to figure out! I had to remove the rear trim to see where the leak was. Hope this might help.

2002 suburban has leak in driver side rear floor. Cannot see where water would be coming from?


We had same--water on driver side rear floor (soaked!). Driver side front floor seemed dry until feeling UNDER rug, was slightly damp. We found the location of TWO leaks causing this.

Leak #1 was through the parking brake line/cable seal; Recaulked with silicone. Removed plastic trim on floor between floor and door to reveal metal channel filled with water.

Leak #2 was where the door meets the car, near the hinge. It was the accordian-looking tube housing the wiring for the door. The big, rubber, circular plug connecting it to the main part of the car had come loose and water ran down through that, into the SAME metal channel filled with water from leak #1; will seal with silicone.

Note: We found that the channel filled extensively near the front door, BUT the carpet edge from the floor near the rear seat was dipping into it, wicking it up to the rear floor. Also, upon acceleration, the water in the channel gushed toward the back, thus soaking the rear carpet.

These leaks were found by removing all plastic trim (covering edges of carpet by doors), then one of us pouring water into specific areas of the exterior of the vehicle, and the other one watching closely with a flashlight for any signs of dripping.

Hi, rear footwell is filling up with water behind drivers seat. seems to be happening after heavy rain. Not sure if door seal problem or bung thing being clogged up under battery as some sites seem to...


It's probably coming from the sunroof drains being clogged.

Open the front door, look closely, you will see a rubber tube sticking out 1 inch. Cut off the tips so the tube is wide open.

Water running down back of door jam leaking onto floor.All seals are good and treated with silcone grease. It's both sides and appears to come from under the plastic and down the jam. GB


have someone spray the top and area around the suspected leak area with a misting sprayer type of hose nozzle, u suit in the car and try to locate the leak, that is how we do it at the dealer, 30 years of doing this and know of no easier way unless there is a factory bulletin to explain this leak (TSB), have u consulted the dealer to ask this question about a possible TSB for the leak?

It could be coming in through the rear door as the rubber might not be sealing properly the easiest way to find the leak is to remove your seats and carpet sit inside get someone to squirt the car round the doors and windscreen air vents.
