    leaking windshield?

    I keep getting water under my carpet on the passenger side of my 02' TA. I have T-tops but can't locate the origin of the water. When we get a pretty decent rain its a lot of water. Its running under the carpet from somewhere cause that gets wet but my mat doesn't. Any ideas where it could be coming from? Anybody else ever have this problem? I just noticed it this spring. All my weather stripping around the windshield and tops seems good.

    In the 2001 gm service manual, book 1 of 3, page 0-37. It says "Weatherstrip Conditioning: Dielectric Silicone Grease (GM p/n 12345579 or equivalent."

    I'm going to try this. I didn't see this post before.

    Easiest way to check for the source of the leak is to have someone hose your car down with you inside. They should direct water at all the obvious places that may be the source of the leak and spray from different angles.

    check if the drain hole is clogged at the bottom of your heater intake well. im talking about under the screen at the base of the windshield. if its clogged water can back up and run in through the heater box which is right above your feet on the pass. side.

    Or the heater core.... But would be warm, and smell of antifreeze.


    Does it only happen when it rains?

    If not, probably is the AC plug.....
