keep the doors and windows closed while in the car wash? Twisted Evil sounds like either your door stripping is getting a bit tired, window might have been down just a tad, or maybe your windshield seal might be leaking. water can come into a car in strange ways, and chasing that down can be a pain. was the door closed all the way? (dumb question, but the secondary catch on the door may have held the door firm enough to not have a rattling to it but enough to let high pressure water in). peace, john

Its almost always the seal for the cabin air filter or the water deflector on the passenger side air inlet under the windshield. Check the external inlet area first, then around the cabin air filter next.

Helldo, I know you are going to give me a hard time for asking this so I'll just take whooping...

Which part is the cabin air filter seal? I know how to replace the filter but don't know what part the seal is. Steps in order of replacing the seal are:

1) Remove weather stripping.
2) Unhook washer line from the clips.
3) Remove plastic pin things that pull straight out and hold the black plastic part down.
4)Remove black plastic part.
5)Reach in and remove filter.

Where is the seal in these steps? Before getting to the filter? After? And yes, I know I'm using very technical terms here. Laughing Thanks for any help.

To keep in your technical terms...

Once your remove black plastic part thing, there should be another piece of weather stripping along the bottom of the windshield thingy.

Better yet, just ask ZSpot to send you Part # 15794785 and be done with this problem forever.

I had the same issue. I just glued it back down and have not had an issue since. Just keep in mind that the water is most likely running right through your blower motor.

As was said by others.

RTV the weather strip into place and you shouldn't have anymore problems.

The article in the HQ Tech Articeles (look above at "articles") does work. I used to leak on passanger side floor but sealed the cabin filter strip and i've been good since.
