SOURCE: Have a leak under passenger side dash when it rains. I think the door under the cabin air filter isnt closing is it an easy fix

Having just repaired this problem in a 1998 Buick Regal, I can tell you that fixing the water leak is actually quite easy. It took me quite a while to track down the source of water, but I have discovered that it comes through the cabin air filter. There is a seal on the passenger side of the cowl (A two piece unit, black plastic, against the windshield) that seals it to the windshield to prevent water infiltration. It is very small and somewhat hard to miss. I took the cowl off to change the filter when I discovered this.

You can make a diverter to go over the air filter under the cowl, or even easier is to use some clear RTV silicone (avalible at any automotive and most hardware stores) and put a good bead on the old seal. When you re-install the plastic cowl, be carefull where it goes against the windshield to make sure you don't "smear" the silicone. After you re-install the plastic retainer hardware, smooth out the bead and clean up the excess silicone(a wet finger and some old cardboard works great). Let it dry and clean up the water in the passenger compartment.

Cleaning up the water is the hard part. Removing the plastic trim around the door (if you grasp the trip peices firmly they just pull up off some metal clips,but they can be quite stubborn) you will notice the carpet just pulls up. At the bottom front corner of the front doors the carpet has a plastic hook that is around one of the trim clips. Lift it off that and the rest of the carpet towards the firewall just pulls up. If it has been a long problem, your carpet may be moldy. Also, the carpet edges and some of the more hidden panel clips are very sharp and may cut you while you are poking around, so be carefull.

Since the water entered through the air filter and right over the fan, you will at minimum want to replace the filter. I had mold and moss growing on mine. My fan also squeels and chirps now, so I know it got wet. Not much to do about that but replace it or carefully lubricate the motor.

In your question you mentioned a door underneath the filter not closing. On my '98 Buick Regal there is no door or valve of any sort. The filter sits right above the fan blades. It is the cowel's job to prevent water from entering this part of the vehicle. I hope this helps you fix your problem.

Water leak driver floor board


A water leak under the dash could be the heater leaking near the glove box, or a windshield leak, or sometimes the drain tube for that area has gotten plugged up and needs to be cleared out. Most times a little blast of air pressure will do it.
Hope this helps.

Rain leaks


NO, it is most likely getting in through the cowl vent area under the wipers. Normally the water drains out the inner fender, but if its clogged with leaves and pine needles, it wont drain and will fill up past the cool air intake and get into the cabin. I would pull the cowl vent grille and make sure the drains are not clogged.

Rain water under dash


Hello, You may have a potential claim under your Car Insurance for Comprehensive which may have no deductible.

There is every potential for water damage to the components under the dash besides the rust of the metal dash framework.

Your windshield seal may be leaking and a simple removal and replacement of the seal by a Glass shop may fix your car. But there may be other wiring "boots" going through the firewall and those chassis seals may also leak.

You have a problem which does not necessarily have a bolt-on solution except possibly a worn door hinge pin allowing for a leak to run along the top of your door weatherstripping and into the dash on the drivers door jam.

There are a number of paste or tube type gasket sealants. But you would want something like the glass shops use. The fumes from some of the products are meant to be used under the hood and not inside the cabin where the people are.

Check with your insurance company, often Comprehensive does not raise your rates if you need to use it. Otherwise if you want to fix it yourself, look for water tracking. You could also position yourself under the dash and have a helper spray a garden hose on the car while you look for the water to enter.

I have a 1980 Dodge aspen, similar to a cordoba, and every time it rains My carpet gets wet. I have located the source to the air vent under the drivers side dash it is full of water. The cowl drains in...


I'm not familiar with the construction of the Cordoba.
However, If it was leaking before you replaced the windshield, you'll probably have to disassemble the dash or whole dash area to find the actual leak source.
If it wasn't leaking before you replaced the glass, then I'd assume it's a small spot that didn't get sealed properly or has developed a small leak in or around the new seal.
Take the trim off/ apart and test small areas with a hose or cups of water to possibly find the spot/area that's leaking.

PASSENGER SIDE LEAKS AFTER IT RAINS


If the water comes in from under the dash, the drain under the air vent on the hood is probably clogged. You have to take off the windshield wiper arms, remove the vent and unclogg the drain. Very poor design!

Leaking water from the driver's side, carpet wet winter and summer


if its still leaking when its not raining check the fluid, if it smells slightly or is coloured it could be radiator coolant, your heater in the car uses the cooling system from your radiator the hoses come into the dash into the heater box, it could simply be the heater box has sprung a leak and is leaking into your car. you would need to take dash apart to get to it. might pay to check levels in radiator aswell, if its happening when its raining only or when water is coming from outside it could be the aircon vents at the bottom of the windshield check to see if there are leaves clogging it up remove and poor water in to check if its done. clogged vents cause overflowing into your system.

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.
