[DML] Re: Passenger side water leak



Make sure the drain for the A/C is not blocked. Since you say you are
leaving the car outdoors tree junk is probably getting in there and
blocking up the drain. You can access it by removing the plastic grill
in front of the windscreen and use a hose to suck as much of the gunk
out as you can. The other way to get there is to remove the fan motor
and go in that way. Do it both ways. You can also remove the front
right wheel and suck on the drain hose with a shop vac. You may have
to stick a wire in the hose to really clean it up. One of the
disadvantages to having to leave the car outside. If you see the RTV
is not sealing well you should remove it everywhere and redo it all
over the car. Make sure to do around the door seals in between the
inner and outer seals by the hinges. Check the hood stops and RTV them
too.
