Well all of a sudden I started having a water problem. There is water leaking in somewhere near the front of my car. It seems to be coming in from inside the dash which really worries me. I do not see it coming in from any of the door seals. Could be the top and running down from the pillar from what I have read.
To see if it was coming from the front I put in a bucket over night when it was raining and sure enough its coming from the front driver side. Any suggestions?

I tried replicating the leak, no luck. I pulled the cover off the vents to make sure the drain was not plugged, ran water over the windshield and top of the car, no luck. I cant find the damn leak but I know its in the front because when I drive and it rains hard I can see it drip from the dash area. Any key points? I am going to take off the pillars and see if its leaking down, my hands just got too cold lol.
Things that are wet.
Driver side floor, front to base of rear seats (i park on a slanted down drive way with my rear on the low side)
Passenger side floor, same as front.
Passenger seat just started to get wet
Passenger side seems worse.
Water will condensate on the inside of all my windows =\
water will freeze on the INSIDE of my windows (its cold here)
Any advice? Only plan right now is get a giant umbrella...
It's reasons like that I began pre-emptively buying up trim/seals for cheap when new units show up for sale in the classifieds, I've been getting lucky but still need a few.
It might be worth taking a garden hose set on a gentle setting and showering from the bottom of the car, and working your way up checking inside after every pass to see when the problem begins to duplicate. No sense in guessing, time to get wet huh? Curious to see at what point you can start to identify the "height" of the problem and see what seals are corresponding in that range. The door and hatch seals may look fine, but I'd really be investigating them if you are experiencing a loss of cabin pressurization on that level.
