    carpet wet?

    okay so the carpet in my 2002 camaro ss is getting wet when it rains, not like damp but WET. I imagine it has to do with the t-tops or the rear trunk lid but what areas should i check. Any good fixes.

    Don't know where yours is leaking, but mine used to leak really bad in rain into the driver side passenger floor. Kinda crazy, but figured out that water would drain down the weatherstrip to the bottom of the door, then creep up the plastic interior trim at the bottom corner of the door jamb (where the B-pillar plastic and the trim next to the seat meet and overlap). I put some black weatherstrip adhesive between the two pieces and it hasn't leaked since.

    Sounds like yours may be a different cause, though.

    get in the car and have someone hose it down, till you find the leak. couldnt get any easier, good luck. and i would start by just replacing the weather stipping needed, classic industries has some very quality stuff.

    I have the same issue but never figured out what it was. I stop looking since it stop raining i dont have that problem anymore, but i should definitely look into it since it could cause some rust.

    Is the trunk weatherstrip glued on?
