Water leaks, am I right?! Hate 'em.
I live in the PNW, so it rains, you know, enough. And for some reason or another, I've got some moisture in my 03 Vibe. Yea, it's got a sunroof, and yea, I've cleaned all four drains and checked for pinched rear lines. I've even checked them for flow manually, but, here we are, I still seem to have "damp" seating surfaces.
Notice, I don't say wet, as they aren't really wet. My highly controlled experiment of taking a dry blue shop towel and pressing it FIRMLY into the passenger front seat bottom yields no visible moisture. But sit out there for 10 minutes swapping out instrumental panel bulbs, and you'll notice your behind feel a bit, damp.
Floors are dry, and only once did I have a little water on the drivers rear floor mat (rubber all weather mats) after a particularly strong rain fall. The rear trunk mat (carpet) maybe feels a little damp, but it's hard to say since everything is wet this time of year. Headliner is the same, maybe damp, but hard to tell.
I've got two of those damp rid type devices in the car, and they are certainly pulling moisture out of the air.
I know all about how sunroofs don't really seal, and I'm this close to yanking down the entire headliner and having my Wife hose the car down while I wait in my ghillie suit and catch the damn water in the act.
But, maybe someone can talk me off the ledge. I'm wondering now about door seals, or water maybe backing up in the sunroof drain not because of blockage, but because the rain has been particular intense recently. The water on the driver's rear mat makes me suspect the door seals, as I could see a straight shot down from there onto the floor.
Thoughts? Tips? Places to look?
