need some extra information -

cold water / hot water?

does it look like coolant ?

drop-by-drop / stream ?

approximate location of origin ?

does it increase when you use the 'wash and wipe' on the wipers ?

Steady on there Capt'n... the lad's liable to go sit in the thunderbox if you go on and not come out.!
Have the same problem with my Accent... if it isn't too bad.. I suggest you live with it instead of going through the hassle of refitting your windshield.

Hey,

Both you guys have you not heard of something called pluggin the leak. Two jobs first try and locate the source of the leak, if not successful give it to someone good. Then put some silicone solution to the affected area and plug it.

If you want a good & reasonable source pm me.

The whole job can be done within 250 bucks and the best part is you can do it yourself.

So long....

Not neccessary, even the rain water could be seeping in through the front wing screen rubber beading.

Looks like the water is seeping in from the doors. try to locate the area from where the water seeps in and we can have some solution

Its coming from behind below the dashboard i can see it when it rains heavily i guess its coming from the front wing screen rubber beading. I had to remove my ECM from that location & wrap it up in an anti static bag and seal it & keep away from that location.

Check for the door beadings and windsheild beadings . many a time they are the cause of a leak as in my octy but then I did a patchup job inhouse and now voila no water in the car....

Ask someone to pour water with a hose but make sure that you pour over the roof area so that the water hits the rubber beading at all sides. Normally the water seeps in from the top portion of the beading where it meets the painted area. You could wet a coloured chalk and smear it on the inside. this will make it easier for you to spot the exact location of leak.

So long....

Guys, I have have a pesky leak in the boot of my car... it shows up only when I drive / park in heavy rain.

I can clearly see the point where the water springs out, but I suspect that the actual leak may be somewhere else and that the water is travelling through the structural channels in the boot. I could just seat up the "drain hole" where the water comes out, but I'm sure it will at best just find another outlet in the boot or worse, it will corrode the metal structure and I might find myself with a hatch back!

I am suspecting one of the joints on the (bonded) rear windshield... but pouring water all over the car does not reconstruct the leak :( ... any ideas on how I could find the source?

Also, where do I get silicone sealant? The auto parts guys I have talked to "never heard of the stuff" !

Hi,

Ask any automobile shop or paint store for Silicon Tube the kind used to seal/fit windscreens. Price starts from Rs 350 a tube uptil Rs1500 based on what brand/quality you go for.
