I am getting water filling up the inside track on my sliding glass door when it rains. The water seems to be coming from the outside under the door. Are there seals leaking?

The track drains on the outside of your slider have clogged, is the likely issue. Yes there are side gaskets or seals that can get frayed and leak, but keeping the track drains will usually deal with the infiltration issue.

How to install side front window?

The window track should have a bolt at the bottom so the track can be moved away from the window to allow enough room to slip it in between the tracks.Also the door skin can be unbolted to gain access from the outside of the door which may make it easier.

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.

Water in both back floorboards after rain 96 bonneville

Water on the floor board in the back seat is usually caused by a leaking rear window, or leaking back will need to remove the inner rear door panels to confirm the exact leak...(as long as it is warm enough:) after removing the door can ask a friend to water from a garden hose over the outside, and continue until you see the location of where the water is coming from...if the rubber seals on the top or bottom of the doors are bad...this certainly allows the rain (water) to come inside...Nice Car and worth fixing...:)

I installed a new bathtub bypass shower door and the outside glass doesn't slide smoothly. It seems to bind in the middle of the bottom support track; it moves, but not as freely and quietly as it should.

Please clarify - you said it's a pivoting door but also said it doesn't slide smoothly - can't really do both at the same time. If it's a typical bypass sliding door then you should be able to make an adjustment to the hanging brackets on the offending door to raise it up off the track. If all else fails the header track can be raised thereby making the doors hang higher and off the track attached to the tub surround.

Shower door off track

It's usually best to take the OUTSIDE door off in that case; and start from the INSIDE, then do the OUTSIDE. The track wheels MAY be reversed on IN/OUT, so watch how they hang in the track. When everything is off, it's a great time to scrub out all the "yuck" that grows down in there. Once that's all cleaned out, rehang the INSIDE door and get it going smoothly, then the OUTSIDE door. You're all set then.

Are there drains in the rear doors,one fills with

There should be slots under the door where metal skin from outside is welded to the bottom of the door frame. The undercoaters use these channels to spray inside the door. It is possible some sealant or other debris had followed gravity and blocked the drain slots. Just poke a wire coat hanger or knife into the slots and open them.

Maybe. If you have a fixed antenna on that side of the vehicle, the large rubber gromet on the wire leading into the passenger compartment may have come out, allowing lots of rain water to enter the vehicle. Happened on my 94 and flooded the passenger side.

Rain water leak

Yes Ive had this happen to my Toyota corrola and my dodge there are 2 different reasons why this is happening 1 of them it depends on if you have a sun/moon roof if so theres a vent in there so if any water or anything goes in it reroutes it too the outside of the car if its cloggeed water will spill into the car like that and just leave puddles the second thing is if you have it parked outside with trees all around theres vents up on the hood where the windsheild meets the hood they clog up so if you look along the back firewall which is under the hood all the way in the back theres a hole that gets clogged you need to clean that out and the easiest way to do that is get someone with a air compressor and blow air in that holke to push it all out it should fix all your water problems and if you have any questions let me know ill be glad to help, also please rate me.

Rattling noises and blowing water (goldstar WG5005R)

If the unit is new and tilted enough toward the outside, the rain should not be a factor as far as water blowing out. It will make some rattling noises on the outside more so when its raining or high humidity because the outside fan throws water onto the condenser coil. Sounds like to me that its not draining to the outside.. It shouldn't be dirty enough for the drain paths to be filled with crud. Tilting it more to the outside should fix it. Hope this helps. kstfas
