... wondering is my new ride had a water leak. A heavy downpour this afternoon made it abundantly clear that I did. As some of you know, almost the entire interior has been removed from the car to rid it a very musty smell. I poked my schnaaz in as I got home from work to find that the car smells pretty darn good now. But wait... WTF is that... puddles of water on the floor pans.
There wasn't too much doubt as to the source of the leak. The trunk was almost totally dry so I didn't think it was the rear window so the sunroof was my main suspect. This is what I found after dropping the headliner:
The drain lines weren't even connected. I wonder how long they have been like that. Well, the lines were checked for blockage as were the front two and reconnected. The front left drain was clogged but the air compressor took care of that.
What'* a little strange though is the front drains are corregated tubes. Thet look just like wire loom but without the split. These drain lines lock in very solid and do not come out. The rear drain lines are standard smooth rubber lines. If you look closely at the pics, the problem was that the lines came out of the ends that connect to the roof. I think before I reinstall the headliner I'm going to use an adhesive to prevent this from happening again.
