Re: [DML] Water Leaks...again. Any advice/ideas?



When you have the grill off to make the deflector check the screws and their caulking. The screws on the drivers side were caulked on my car but not on the passenger side. Caulking them cured my leak.

If you all remember, I was the water leak king a few years ago, 
always posting about this leak and that leak on vin 1880. Well I 
still have them, and even Dave Bauerle's shop had no luck, yet 
stopped one coming in under the passenger door (which I wasn't aware 
I had). They thought that fixed it, yet I still have them after 
washing the car yesterday, and mainly when I run my hand under the 
driver side carpet after washing and slide it towards the center 
console area, the closer I get to the console, the wetter the carpet is.

At the advice of Ken K. I am going to make a deflector for the big 
opening/drain on the outside of the car in front of the windshield on 
the passenger side. Hopefully somehow water is coming in there, and 
creating the deflector will shoot the water down farther away from 
the area where it might be leaking in. I am sick of breathing the 
smell of damp carpet.

I have performed the factory water leak bulletins, caulked the t- 
panel, replaced door seals, etc, etc, etc. Does ANYONE (vendors 
especially) recall anyone else having this problem in the past 24 
years, and can anyone else give me any other ideas as to where to 
look in the event that this deflector doesn't do the trick? Keep 
your fingers crossed that it does, I have faith in Ken K.
