My 2004 Vibe GT just started having this problem about 3 months ago. I'm definitely convinced that it is due to the windshield frame corrosion being totally gone, and allowing water to enter the pass side headliner. The pictures pretty much tell the story. My solution will to be have the windshield removed , repair any/all rust & repaint, then reinstall windshield. Ill post pics & progress when I get started. Probably in a month or so but not too much longer than that.coppens1 wrote: ↑Wed Jul 07, 2021 8:07 am Vibe Owners 070721 Passenger Headliner Leak
Dear Vibe Owners, I still have a Headliner Leak, but on the passenger side of my 05 Vibe, from the joint where the headliner meets the plastic covering the roof column..
The problem was previously diagnosed as a leaking windshield. I was going to have my windshield replaced, but Safelight won't replace it because of some corrosion at the top of the windshield. I bought Fix Tape Rubberized Waterproof Tape, for Boat Repair (Clear, 4 inches x 5 feet), and put it all the way across the top of the windshield. The leak continued.
It appears the leak is from the luggage rack, and seems to be coming from the driver side luggage rack. When I covered the passenger side luggage rack and tested it in the rain, the leak persisted. So it has to be coming from the driver side luggage rack.
Has anyone else had the leak problem? YES .... ME
YES. I'd be curious if you have rust along the top of the glass similar to what I have. That is clearly where my leak is originating from.
Look like a typo to me. I'm sure he meant to say "ran a bead of silicone/sealant from the roof rack to windshield". Looks like I'm still a few weeks out before I get started on my leak. I will likely pull it into the "unheated" portion of the shop and at least get started. Headliner and all trim pieces will come out first. Once totally removed I may take it outside and "simulate rain" so I'll definitely be able to see where it's leaking. Have to watch the weather though .... it's winter up here now and don't want it to freeze anywhere.
