    I've talked to other Chevy guys and it seems that these things tend to leak under and next to the dash on the left side, right in front of the door. Mine has always leaked some, but lately with the tons of rain we've had I have resorted to putting a pail under the dash to catch the water. Does ANYBODY have a clue where it could be coming in? Thanks

    The rain is comming from the sky [​IMG] It might be leaking from the cowl area or around the window frame

    Thanks guys but I've checked those things. I was hoping for an answer like 'yea, just plug this hole' LOL. Anybody else with some ideas?

    Have you actually had the windshield OUT? I can't exactly remember the "water route" in the cowl area underneath the windshield, but could it be that water is not being allowed to drain down the inside of the fender area, and backing up in there?

    Why insist on counting when the ring gear has the tooth counts stamped in?

    I think you'll need a bucket to catch your tears if you take your winshield out. I'm redoing by Blazer and pulled the windshield. I had holes that were over an inch long rotted in the frame. You're gonna have to do some patching. I just took some little strips of sheet metal and put them in place with Fusor body glue. I slip them in from behind and used a magnet to hold them in place. Then with a minimal amount of filler used, you couldnt tell. I could have welded it, but I'm sure I'd burn holes in what I had left and its a tight spot to get a grinder in without touching anything else.
