My son, who is serving in the military, owns a 2004 93 2.0T. His wife is driving the car and she has been experiencing water in the right rear carpet after rain. I do not believe it leaks if the car is still, but not for certain. I have searched and cannot find how water is entering. Any suggestions as to how I might be able to help this young couple?

Thanks in advance,
Mike

I have found on more than One occasion unplugged sunroof drains. This requires the headliner to be lowered, the sunroof "Cassette" which is the body the Glass slides back and forth in has a Gutter and hose system. At each corner of the "Cassette" has a Rubber hose attached. Usually one of these hoses is Disconnected. Or the plastic portion where the hose attaches to is broken. the unions are cheap to replace as long as the "Cassette" is not broken. Hopefully you will be able to just plug the hose back on. But you will need to drop the headliner to figure this out.

Check the hoses in the trunk first before taking down the headliner to make sure they are not clogged, sometimes the tubes get clogged and it all backs up.

This is what I discovered after 3 failed attemps trips to the dealership.

Above the very top of the door panel there is rubber that sits on the inside and outside of the glass window (bottom of glass when rolled up). If you look on the outside there are tiny gaps in between the glass, bottom rubber, and black trim that sits between the glass on the side doors. This is where the water enteres into the door. If you have a well sealed vapor barrior covering the inside of the door the water is not going through there, but instead leaks through the plastic clips (sitting on a metal panel outside the vapor barrier) that hold the door panel on. In order to fix this problem you will need to seal the gaps or replace the rubber that sits on each side of the window and seal all plastic clips to the door that hold onto the door panel. This problem was on a 2006 9-3.
