Re: [DML] Re: Passenger side water leak


>From your desctiption it sounds like the water is coming in through
the A-pillar itself.  There are lots of places where water could get
into the roof of the car above the pillar.

Windshield header retaining screws - these are located behind the
outer door seal

Windshield side trim retaining screws - these are located behind the
outer door seal

Torsion spring mounts

Door hinge mounts

Wiring harness access panel under T-panel

Since you poured water into the channel, we can probably rule out 
the T-panel and the windshield seal itself.  The other places are still
