    water on passenger side after hard rains.

    I have a 99 TA that spends it's time out side. I have noticed lately that after a good rain there is water on the floor. I had my wife to run water down the window and the door after I removed the inner pandel so that I might be able to see just where it may be comming from, but no luck, didn't see a drop. Frist I thought that I may had left my glass down some,but that is not the case. Each time it rains I gets water on the floor.Had front glass replaced about two years ago but never had a problem. have anyone had this problem before? if so where do I start looking.Could it be traving down the right side T top and down to the inside of the car. It seems to be getting in some where on the bottom of the car, I can see where the wettness starts and it's on right side lower as if it is building up and spilling over onto the floor.could the drain in the door be stopped up? Need help.

    I would look at the cowl drain first. Might be clogged and letting water back up into the car.

    I chased this on a grand prix and it ended up being the door seal around the entire opening. It looked fine but it was leaking.

    I had to lightly tap the pinchweld around my goat's passenger door to stop it from leaking

    I had been under the cowl several times fixing known issues, had the windshield redone and heard of hvac problems but the door seal finally fixed mine from gmpartsdirect. cheaper than a dealer.

    I have noticed that there is water on some parts of the door seal,I wanted to find out where it came from,This may be where it's getting in,but like yours it looks good.It's raining here now but I have no plan to be out there trying to trace down a water leak ,I'll find it when it stops.I have noticed that there are small cutouts in the door seals on left and right doors.They seem to be made in the seal for some reason.Could they be there for drainage? what are they there for? and that's just where the water seems to be getting in.Need help.
