Strongly recommend you find a carpet cleaner guy with a truck mounted unit. Have him prespray with a traffic path solution, steam/ extract it, and then have him hit it with a product called Microban. It should take him about 15 minutes.

Wow... I didn't know it had that many views...

Vital, If you need any info we can talk... I went through H*** and back finding those freaking leaks... Car has been bone dry for the better part of 6 months... Even seen a few patches with several days worth of rain and it stayed bone dry...

Let me know..

The main leak for me turned out to be the sealer and seam at the drivers side hood hinge... All that effort I spent turned out to be a small sealer issue...lol

I had to add to the door seals like you are talking about doing to take up for the amount of shrink over the years... I also RTV'd at all possible leak points...

I do reccomend removing the metal wire holders and applying some RTV under them and then along top of them before you install the door seal... That will help ensure a nice tight seal( dry ) At all 4 doors too... I had leaks in the rear as well...

If you find any evidence of water coming in through the HVAC system or evidence of water on the Hump, you may want to pull the windshield wiper arms and the plastic cowl, and then drop the passenger side pivot for the wiper arm just above the HVAC intake and use some sealer on the gasket to make that seal water tight... As any drops will find their way into the HVAC system and into your car...

For you tyhe only other issues that could be left would be the sunroof drain tubes... Trust me you have your hands full... But I hope that a lot of our issues will help you

Note that this may be for only the 92 and 93, but a little research shows some interesting stuff with regards to that rear window gasket (reveal molding).

92 had a first design and second design.
Then after 93, a final design.

I think they knew about those leaks, and got it fixed for the 94 model year.

Looks like the interior of my car. Don't fret over it. I had the door seal issue. Got mine all figured out. all except for the firewall one, but I haven't completely located that one yet.
