when mine were leaking, i could see the trail of water in the carpet next to the drivers seat where it leaked in through the door

Are you sure it is the weather strip? Have you physically seen where the water is coming in?

Be sure and dry up the carpet as soon as possible, the SIR can acidently set off the air bags if the connector gets wet.

SIR=Supplemental Inflatble Restraint

One way to 'pull out the weather striping is to pull it back and apply some black rtv, let it set and push the weather striping.

To find a low spot, roll down the window, fold a $5 bill in half length ways and close the door on the paper. Now you can run the paper back and forth along the top and feel for where it loosens up.

As you probably have seen here, when that buss ground under your driver'* seat gets wet and corroded, it can cause all kinds of problems, including performance problems, electrical gremlins and more.

Well I looked everywhere as it is pouring here,floor is soaked all the way thru driver side front and back, I cant see any water coming in around doors, I will try the $5 trick but it is wet at driver bus. How do you dry carpet all the wy thru ,and it will keep getting wet.Dont want to take it to the dealer $$$$$$.Somebody mentioned trunk leak, how would that get to the front of the car.Thankyou

Ok...I'll say it.

The best way to find your leak and dry your carpet/padding is to remove it from the car.

Pull the back seat also. Then have someone hose the car down. You will be able to see everything, get the leak fixed. Dry the interior and put it back in.

Is there a way water can come in under the body pan? I looked under mine and there are little plugs that snap in and there'* a hole up under where the rear seat covers things...?
