need some help or some info 02 impala the carpet gets wet it poured down raining last couple days in my area and my carpet been wet i repalce the cabin filter some long time ago and i had to use foam around edges so appeantely its doin it again so any help and advice would be appreciated
I installed the above part on my 05 Impala. It was designed for 06+ cars, but fits the 05 just fine. I had no problem with the original part, but I decided to upgrade anyways. I practiced on several cars in the bone yard, so I would know what to do on my car. It is well documented here, & a small amount of plastic removal is required. On the 10 or so cars I practiced on, only 2 had the original style seal out of place, causing a water leak. The rest were all fine, & had no leaks. The part is less than $5, & at the most, a half hour of your time. While in there, change the filter too. GARY
Might I note that I had this same problem and used this replacement part but I believe my problem was with the drains on both sides of the car. If those are clogged with leaves and debris, it won't matter if u replace the weatherstripping with the deflector, the water will continue to back up through the cabin air filter. At least I believe this is what was going on with mine.
