    During the last couple days I have had water on the drivers side floor. When looking at it I found that it is dripping off the dash right behind the emergency break release.
    Anyone had this happen, know how to fix, where it is actually entering the vehicle...etc.....

    I don't want to short out my dash, or lose my floors.

    The driver's side?????? Is it coolant or wiper fluid perhaps?

    I think it is just water, we have been having storms and after a heavy rain I find it on the floor mats. Could it be the windshied seal??

    The winsheild seal is a likely place. When you go down the highway, do you get any whistling or air leaks?

    I know in the K5 world a 90 is new but remember this is 12 years old now. Air leaks HA, LOL

    OH, you mean I have to turn down the stereo, what if I find more noises that I don't want to fix.

    Can I lift the rubber seal and add some sealant to see if that will stop it? Or is that asking for more problems.

    On a winsheild, it's better to just have the seal replaced. On the other seals, I'd say go for it. Done that a time or two myself!

    I actually just smeared vaseline on the window seal side temporarily, since the way I parked, it would puddle up right in the corners against the glass and seal. That was before the new windshield, which doesn't leak one bit now. Really need to pull the window, as water coming in is doing nothing but rusting and corroding everything it hits, in a place you can't see.
