Default My seat'* gettin wet!

Everytime I get in my car after it has rained the passenger seat is soaked. I checked the moon roof first and I don't think that'* it. Are there any ways of checking this out without fixing a bunch of things that don't need fixed?

One person with a hose, and another sitting in the car looking for water. Then you can narrow it down to sunroof or door seal.

Thank you. I guess it woudn't hurt for it to get wet anymore than it already has. Hey you know the plastic trim above the doors? You think I could get some trim at a junk yard?

You can probably get just about any trim piece at the yard.

Some specific leaks to look for are the top corner of the door seal. They tend to shrink and leave gaps. And the sunroof drains can get clogged or disconnected. If you open the roof and slowly put water in the inside area and no water goes away, they are clogged. If the water does drain, but no water drips from the wheel wells where the drains dump, they're probably disconnected and draining into the cabin. They frequently require the headliner be dropped to reconnect them.
