Default Sigh..

Well I decided to take a peak under the carpet in the back seat and when I did I found a puddle of water So I pulled the 2 front seats out and the back half of the carpet today and I'll be trying to pull the front carpet tomorrow if the center console cooperates. The is really bad, almost no rust at all but this is a serious problem for a car only 5 years old. So I need to find whatever that stuff is that seals that plastic barrier on the doors and then fix that AND re-seal the spoiler, and yes the trunk is leaking too. So my car is sitting outside with gutted interior and a trunk padded with towels.

Anyone have a clue how long it might take for that foam stuff attached to the carpet might take to dry?

sigh, you can say that again! The Bonne really tests my patience with her flaws. It wouldn't be bad except that problems tend to surface at the least convenient times!

The stuff that will seal the doors is a 15-foot roll of windshield sealing material from most auto parts stores. 15' will do 2 doors. Problem was with my front doors, I don't know if anyone'* had rear doors leak or not.

You can also use the tube and goop form of weatherstrip adhesive. Both are good options.

I had to reseal my rear passenger door. I am barely into my second roll of 3M butyl sealing strip with both front doors and the rear passenger door done. When I get time, I'm going to do the rear drivers door as well just to have them all covered.

update:

Today I ran a hose over the car and found that water was dripping from the passenger side foot-well, so after a few hours of pulling the dash I figured out that the tube for the sunroof drain had come undone and I had to pull half of the dash to get to it and clamp the 2 ends together. And while I was re-assembling the dash I cracked my windshield . So I have to drive around with a cracked windshield untill I can take some money aside and buy a new one.

The good news is I finally found some butyl sealer to take car of the doors and I think it will do the job for the spoiler as well.
Jeez, all this over a little water.
