Replace vent glass


It is easiest if you remove the door panel and passenger glass first. Once that is done it is much easier to remove the weather stripping, seal and vent window.

Rear passenger sliding door wont shut?


Check the bottom weather strip along the frame, it's common for passengers to knock them off it's runners and they fall down preventing the sliding door to close properly.
If it is the weather strip, place some RTV silicon to keep it in place when you re-install the weather strip back in place.
Thank you for using fixya and keep me posted, be glad to help you get your sliding door working 100% again.

Whistling noise as i am driving


Hi. This will be caused by deteriorating, or defective weather stripping. During driving, air is pushed through worn, or damaged weather stripping, thus, creating this whistling sound you are hearing in the passenger compartment. Water allows the small hole, or cracks, to emit the sound at a louder rate. This could be a manufacturing flaw(poor weather stripping installation, or defective composite). This is repairable, but you will need to locate the worn weather stripping. Once located, and exposed, you can order a replacement weather stripping kit from your dealer.

NOTE_ Most common location will be the front windshield weather stripping. the rear window, and side windows are to be checked, as well.

2004 Lincoln Town Car Rear passenger side wet carpet


I had the same problem in my Lincoln Town Car about a year or so ago. Here is what the problem was. There are a couple of air ducts at the back of your hood (top of firewall just below the base of your windshield wipers anchor points) These ducts are located one on the driver and one on the passenger side. Each of them has a little gate at the opening. The gates on my car were clogged with leaves and debris, thus causing water to flow over the ducts into the passenger compartment of the car. These ducts must be cleaned out so the water can flow through them and down to the ground instead of overflowing due to clogging.

03 impala passenge has FLOOR were it come from


pop the hood and take out the plastic shroud on the passenger side at the firewall. there is a rubber weather stripping that will direct the rain water off the wind shield other wise the rain will fall directly onto the top of the fan motor then run down onto the carpet. i noticed mine when the fan motor iced up and was about an inch thick of ice. all i did was RTV on the weather stripping to redirect the water good luck.

Replace window


what do you need to know? the small passanger window or door window?
if you are replacing the door window then you need to remove the doos cover on the inside of the car. Then remove the old window base from the tracks. Slowly slide the new window in ( removing the weather stripping on one side) once the window is in roll the windoe all the way down and replace the weather stripping

Interior Carpet Getting Wet


It sounds like a plugged drain line from the air conditioner. Most cars now run in the a/c mode whenever u turn on the climate control (even when heat is on). The passenger side front is where it would be wet, and the carpet and carpet pad act like a sponge and will soak up the water. Let me know how u make out.

There is a water leak somewhere in my 98 toyota camry that leaks into my passenger side floor. There is no sun roof and no visible leaks from the windows or doors. Any thoughts? A/C leak maybe? water...


I am the original owner of camry xle 1998 with wet floors. In 2000 I had drivers side door seal leaking at welt. Removed old door seal and new weather strip on drivers side installed. The door panel was never wet, but wet at bottom of door where there are drain holes...slowly leaking under carpet.
In 2001 later water again. Coming from overflowing A/C evaporator-drain plugged/ tank full of debris. Removed evaporator, cleaned + drain cleaned.
In 2003, driver door seal against window rotted. Removed door panel and found leak at window belt molding at the mirror joint inside + out. Lots of mold under carpet needed to replace! Made a fuss at dealers for reacurring problem and they replaced the carpet for free.
