detect cabrio leak

Recommended Posts

Please help. I aready did a search and can not find any advice so here goes.

99 c4 carbio

New top

Driver side floor front and rear wet after washing car.

What I have done:

Cleaned both rear drains. From their input to the catch basin and the to the drainage point in the tire.

All clear both sides and both drainage tubes intact.

All four front drains repaired (2 of the tubes were pushed through, but I brought them back). All 4 now flow freely to their drain points.

Replaced seals on rear quarter windows whch were both shot.

I have gone from lots of leaks to now ust little.

Back seat in no longer wet. Just floor.

Cant see any leaks in any other seals.

Front firewall dry so if coming from front I can not tell.

So what next?

Took everything apart again. Sat in the car with the seat on my back, carpet in one hand, flashlight in the other. Son with hose over top. Found the leak. It is coming from the front. Middle.

Need to remove gas pedal. Anyone know how to do that?

Also is there a seal under the hood. Besides around the trunk? There is a lot of water on the battery tray and the front drain areas.

Also, where does the left middle drain go? When I dump water in it, it goes to the floor of the garage, but can I get to the bottom of it any way?

Ok solved it. I am now the cabrio drain expert.

Have traced all drains. Found where I think the leak was. It was leaking past the grommet under the drain under the steering. Going to put the car back together again and hope I got them all.
