I also checked that and found that my drains were plugged with caked dirt. I
cleaned it all out but still had the problem. The liner seemed ok. Is there
something specific that I could look for? I also found a little bit of
moisture on the firewall near the fuse block so I think that's where it was
coming from. But I'm not sure. Never did get it pinned down very well.
The rubber seals at the base of my windows on all four windows has a gap
between the rubber and the glass. Is there a good way of taking care of
that? I tried silicone and then sliding a blade between it and the glass,
but it didn't last more than a few months. But even before I cut the
silicone I was STILL getting water in the rear of the car. The only prices I
found for a new set was something like $400-600. Not something I'm willing
to pay to fix up my old car. (Well, I'd pay that for the engine or tranny,
but not for some window seals!)
