    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!

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.

2003 STS cadillac leaking water on both driver and passenger floor boards


It could be the sun roof. It also could be clogged drains from the sun roof. It may also be door seals Leaking. It could also be leaking around the bottom of the windshield. A good way to narrow it down is to get inside the car and have someone spray the outside of the car with a water hose. while you look for water leaking inside of the car. If it does it while the ac is on may be a clogged ac drain. however it usually just leaks on passenger side when it is that. well good luck.

Water dripping onto passenger side floor from the inside passenger assist handle.


Does your car have a sun (or moon) roof? A leak in a sunroof will sometimes follow the roof over to the door post and down to the floor were the water will accumulate. This can be hard to find sometimes but having one person spraying water on the roof while a second one checks the inside of the vehicle you may be able to pinpoint the leak.
Hope this helps.

2004 nissan sentra rain leak passenger side


Someone in the car watching for leak, someone outside the car with a hose.. Gently apply water to the door area and person inside looks for the leak... Another possibilty. If the water is comning from under the car it can be a rusted place or a body separaion.. harder to find. It can be comning in from around the windheild seal and running down the interior firewall. This is how a shop would find the leak.. but they would charge you for it..

Leaking water


Before spending $800 for a might fix it, I would either tape it shut or seal it shut with silicone sealent. Tape might damage the paint, so be aware of this. Personally I would seal it with silicone, it can always be removes although it is a pain in the rear end. After sealing wait for the next rain and look for leaks. You could pull the headliner out and then run a water hose over the roof and look for a leak as well. A body shop will probably be cheaper to repair it than the dealer. Dealers generally charge around $100/hr for labor. Body shops charge around $65.hr.

Water in floor board passenger side of 2001 jeep grand cherokee. Could it be the sun room drain. If so where is it located?


I had the same problem with my jeep. If you aren't positive that it is your sun roof check to make sure that your doors are shutting completely. One way to check is by pouring water along the crack where your door meets the body of your car. My sun roof as well as my drivers side door had a leak in them and instead of getting the sun roof fixed I had sealant put around the rim of the window and I haven't had any problems since.

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.
