    It has just began to rain in my area today and I noticed that I have a leak coming from under the driver side dash. It is not anti-freeze, it only happened today w/ the rain. I can see no water running anywhere except on the corner under the dash. I can not see where it is originating. PLEASE HELP, I fear a problem w/ the electrical system, not to mention rusting.

    Try to duplicat the problem with a garden hose and get a better look at it...i'm thinkin you need to have the windshield pulled and resealed...just a hunch.

    Yeah, it does sound like leaky windshield. If the garden hose doesn't work, try a car wash if you feel lucky [​IMG]

    LMC & other places sell the w/s gaskets but I'd let a pro do it myself.

    Good Luck,

    Had to take out the window myself. Each corner by the foot-panels where wet every time it rained. I remember reading awhile back about cleanig out leeves and dirt that gathers in the "gutters" under the long wiper-plate between the window and the hood. Should keep you busy a while. I dont recomend the silicon doityoureself atempts, they only get you irretaded.
    Good luck.

    I used some"flowable" silicone I found at a local parts store. It is a liquid form silicone that "flows" into low spots and voids before curing. Worked great on an old van I had with a particlularly sneaky windshield leak.
