I'd try pouring water harshly towards the windshield, (outside, of course). Next, do the same with driver's side door. If this fails, try again with a water hose. Remember, when it's raining, there's much pressure, especially if you're driving. I would really try to get water to leak into vehicle, it would be much easier with a friend's assistance. I hope this helps!
Most water leaks come from around the windshield area. Has the windshield been replaces recently? If so it may not be sealed properly. Another area where water may penetrate is through the cowling area under the wiper blades/arm where fresh air enters the car. There are water drains under this cowling allowing water to drain and if they are plugged with leaves/debris, water will enter the vehicle. Is the vehicle rusted around the windshield area? If so, suspect this to be the source of water intrusion. Most glass/windshield repair companies will diagnose water intrusion problems
Hi, it sounds like your windshield seal is perished. Try pouring some water onto the windshield rubber seals from the outside and see if you can find the leak. There are several commercial windshield rubber seal repair glues out there which you can use to fix it. Try an auto or hardware shop. It is also possible that the water is coming thru the car body so try removing the plastic kick panels around the drivers foot area and have a good look for rust. The worst case scenario is that there is a hole from possibly rust from under the area where the dashboard meets the top rear section of the engine bay area.

Sounds like the seal around the windshield is letting the water in the van. You may need to replace the seal around the windshield. Take the van to a windshield replacement center and have it inspected for leaks. Hope this will help you.
4 things come to mind. 1.) has the car been wrecked and repaired, if so the doors may be out of adjustment.
2.) faulty door deals. the rubber seal that goes around the doors.
3.) a bad windshield installation or seal. if the windshield seal is bad it could allow water in at the top which could run between the cars metal roof and the fiberboard interior roof.
4.) bent doors
if the car has never been wrecked and the doors have never been removed then you can pretty much count out 1 and 4. check the door seals for tears or missing or flat sections. if they are intact then you may want to try pouring some water around the top of the windshield and check for leaks.
just some ideas. hope this helps, have a good day.
i was an expert at water leaks to find the source or sources of the leak you will need 2 people and a flashlight as well as a garden-hose to test one person inside the vehicle and one working the hose starting from the very lowest point of the issue and working your way up to the top giving adequate time for the water to penetrate the area of entry it may take a few minutes to a few hours but i assure you you will locate it it may come from the windshield as is in most cases the source , dont automatically assume its the luggage rack until you determine so ....you may even need t remove the headliner to properly locate it then when found repair as needed and continue to look for another leak as more than one can be at hand ...i truly hope this works for you
pull your carpet up near the leak area and look for muddy body seams. it is possible one of the factory body seams are leaking- possibly in the cowl(under wipers) area, especially if it leaks when the car is sitting. there will be dirt/mud around the seams that are leaking. also you can check door seals by running the car on HIGH DEFROST with all doors and windows closed. spray around with a 50/50 soapy water solution. obviously bubbles will form around your leak.
