Default Water leaking into car... (Update)

Better post below.....


went into the car last night and there was some water on the front passengers seat, I noticed that theres a gap between the right front corner of the car and the black thing that is supposed to be attached to the car. I wish I had pics to show u all. Is there any gap fillers I can put in? or am I screwed?


EDIT: Ok I'll try in detail a little more. the black weather stripping that is attached to the car is off a bit and is leaving a gap in it leading water into the car. Right now the front right edge of the headliner is wet and it dripped a little more in there. I cannot force it back into place so I need something to fill the gap so the water won't get in. I'm sorry thats about as good as I can describe it.

Is this where you are talking about?



If so, this is caused by the weatherseal shrinking, and the fix is rather simple. Create slack in the bottom(where the seam is) and use the slack to fit the weatherstripping to the corner where it has pulled loose. Use adhesive to hold it in place if need be. Then, go to the junkyard and cut a piece of the weatherstripping from a junk car, cut it to size, and fit it in the gap you created at the bottom.

Here'* a thread with some good information about water: http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ht=turtle+pond

Well my hook-up guy found it its the drain hose in the sunroof. Need a replacement hose and I'll need to drop the headliner. Since its been raining alot we've sealed the sunroof with black electrical tape (Ghetto-tastic!) So it'll be done by the end of the week. Wish me luck!

Theres a topic on how to remove the headliner. Too bad the pics are down. If you are doing it just take your time and try not to break clips on things. Its actually pretty easy, I was just nervous ripping half my car apart when I did it
