    windows starting to leak....

    any one have this problem? my car is a hard top but my windows are starting to leak. i want to a local car wash and when it came out i noticed some drops running down the inside drivers door.

    any one have a quick fix that doesn't envolve changing the weather stripping?
    thanks brandon

    there are little like foam spacers..you stick them in where ever your stripping is leaking and it fixes it..saw it on goss's garage i believe.

    you think i could find them at the hardware store or parts house?
    is it like the pads you put under a t.v or like the little pads you put under the
    glass on a table?

    yeah...it only leaks in extremely wet ocassions... really hard rain (like we get here almost every other week)... or if you spray the hose directly to the windows... it also leaks if you open the door while drizzling cause you brake the good seal by opening the door...

    but other then that... in light rain ocassions... and washing in house... it doesn't leak at all...

    while we are at the Leaks in the Windows... when I got past like 90mph... I hear air getting in from the front of the driver window...even when it's fully close...is that something that happenes alot??

    yes it does have a slight whistle at high speeds like you said i gotta be around like 80-90.

    as for the wheels..i got them from a local guy for 600 w/ tires.
    he had them on a ws6 and when he traded it they wanted the ws6 rims.
    the tires only had 1000miles on them. so you could say i stole them.

    i would try Ebay...OEM makes them for a reasonable price. it think you can get 2 18x9.5 for like $350 or so or a set(4)$?
    mine are 17x9.5 and i'm going to put SS caps on them soon. i think it will look better then vette caps. good luck!

    If you take your time there is quite abit of adjustment in window as long as the seal is still somewhat ok. Draw back if you go to stiff it will rolll slow and catch in the rubber riviet guide in mirror if it hasn't worn through already. just my 2cents

    my passanger side window leaks some when it goes through a really intense auto-car wash. water kinda squirts right through. I figure part of it is due to my window motor starting to crap out.

    Mine as well. I can wash the car with a hose at the house and it will be fine. It can also rain and be fine...but if I go to a car wash that uses jet washers I get water thrown in from both sides.
