Garage door gaskets and weather stripping are not very effective since the surface they seal is rarely level and frequently has small stones and other imperfections. You can improve the seal by using 1X4s, (plastic wood is best), secured on the surface were the door meets the ground. It can be held in place with masonry screws and a silicon sealent. You may need to adjust the door lock afterwards.

    I neglected to say that you'll need to make sure the 1x4 attached to the floor or ground is level. Use plastic shims to level it and add extra caulking around the shims.

Where should I look for rain water leak?


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

2005 xc70 volvo ceiling leak when it rain


Sounds like rubber seal is leaking, check the rubber seals along the side of the windshield and along the inner door. The seal can be easily replaced or patched with silicon sealeant.

Hope this helps

The leak I have in my 2006 HHR is clear, on the passenger side, and only happens when it rains. I do not see anything around the windshield, but it goes through the glove compartment and on to the flo


A good trick to finding exactly where it is leaking from is to take flour or baby powder, and very lights dust the entire inside area where the leak could be coming from. Do this right before you know it is going to rain and it will leak. when you go out to check it after the rain, it should be very easy to see where the water came in and washed away the powder. I would do it along the rubber gasket around the door from the back edge of the window where it meets the roof, all the way down past the door hinges, as well as the windshield.

It happen when the car is standing stationary at night and in the evening when it rains and by the morning there is a puddle of water inside. As attached in the picture.
The garage did a get wash but they could not find no leak and fixed the rim of the doors on the passenger side of the door too but it still keep happened and I went back the garage but they have done all the investigation but they still can't seem to find the problem for the water flooding inside of the car.
Can you please help in understanding what else could be the course of this problem.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Water in floor on drivers side front and rear


Firstly is it rain water or coolant? dab it with a kleenex and see if it is coloured if it is then the heater core is leaking, if not then you have to hunt for the leak, water will travel from the front to back so see if water is coming from the bottom of the door trim and flooding over the rubber seal, otherwise look carefully around the screen, then you have to search under the dash, it is a detective job. has anything happened recently to the Jeep?

Water leaking into KH laser Hatchback


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.

Floor carpet in rear is wet.


If it is not the drainage holes from the sunroof as suggested above, then it is almost certainly the seal at the bottom of the door nearest the wet patch. Remove all plastic interior door trim and you will see a rubber seal running around the lower part of the door which prevents water ingress. With age, the seal leaks and water enters the inside of the vehicle at the bottom of the door. It is easily resealed with a suitable sealant from an autoparts' shop. About one hour's labour. Good luck.
