    1997 Land Cruiser also leaking from the sun roof. Looks like the back seal. Dealer quoted a huge price and said they still may not be able to figure it out - not very helpful. We are going to try to replace the seal and see if that helps. Other problems are a motor on the driver side window and the motor on the passenger side seat.

    I did have this same problem when I bought mine. I knew it had a leak but figured I'd find it. Guess i was lucky that it was only the drain for the moonroof in the front corners that were blocked with leaves and stuff.

    95 Land Cruiser . My water leak on the passenger side floor problem was solved by cleaning out the foliage debris in the vent intake ( grill between the top of the hood and windshield ) . Took a shop vac and sucked all the **** , then reversed the shop vac and blew into vent- did it a few times and worked out OK .

    You could also remove the grill by taking off the wipers and unscrewing it from the beneath the hood . don't suggest it - windshield gasket may not line up when reinstalling.

    I have a 1996 Landcruiser and had the same problem (leaking that soaked the passenger side floor) due to clogged sunroof drains. However the problem is back and those drains are clear. I have not tried clearing the vent intake, but will do so. Does anyone know where the drains are in the vent intake as I haven't explored it yet. Thanks!

Check the sunroof drains,they may be clogged they are located on the right and left front of the sunroof.

I had the same problem. Flushed the sunroof drains, replaced the windsheild, and weather stripping on passenger and driver side doors. Car is still leaking. No one can figure it out.

I have a 2001 land cruiser gxl it leaks water from the passanger side floor heater outlet. i have cleaned the tube from the airconditioner that exits at the firewall but it still leaks water out the heater...

It may be the heater core, but if it is just water though you may need to remove the wipers and the cover for the wiper motor to see if there is a piece of rubber molding that has moved out of place.

Fuse for sun room, 1991 Land Cruiser

On the Land cruiser there are two fuseboxes. One is beside the battery. The other is just above the drivers right knee. There is a fuse panel under the drivers left knee and an additional one in the engine compartment on the left front fender well along with relays. Look in these to find the sun roof fuse. I'm not a 100% sure which one it is in but this should help.

2002 Toyota RAV4 passenger side floor Water

Hi, we also have a 2002 Toyota Rav4 and developed a leak in the front driver's side of the car. After much research, we discovered that the drain wells from our sun/moon roof were clogged. If you have one of these, I suggest that you open the sun roof and look carefully. You will notice some tiny little holes in front and in the rear of the sun/moon roof tracks. Over time, these become clogged with dust and debris. You need to find a long, sturdy piece of thin wire and run it down the holes. To test if you have properly unclogged these, take a small amount of water and pour it down the holes. You should see water coming out of the drain wells under the car around the rear of the front tires. Hope this helps.

Does my 1997 toyota land cruiser have a heater core?

Check with Toyota Parts. I'm sure there is one, but it is unavailable at a retail parts store. Heater cores are pretty much as necessary as the four tires on the outside are. My advice would be to remove the core and check the hose clamps or connections for other issues. You want to be sure that the leak is in the core and not in one of the hose connections. I think that is odd that your driver side floor is wet and not the passenger side. Open the hood and look for coolant hoses attached to the firewall (the sheet metal between your dash and the motor) and see if they are on the driver side or the passenger side.
