Water leak
« on: Jan 12, 2020, 08:04:12 AM »
So I will try to explain this the best I cant without a picture. Right above my windshield in the cab there is a strip of plastic that runs the length of the windshield and when it rains, on each side of that strip of plastic it will drip water. Now is this because the weather stripping has gone bad on the windshield? I dont understand where it is coming from!  :mad: I also get leaking coming from under my steering column but it only happens there every once in awhile. The biggest issue is the drips from above the windshield cause it always drips onto the passenger seat and then rolls off onto the carpet and I dont want no rust forming under the carpet.

Do you have a sunroof..if not..sounds like your windshield may need to be resealed..

I had the same problem on my 2000.  It would leak down to the floor.  I tried silicone and hardware store glass sealant.  No luck.  Maybe get pro help.

No sunroof must be the windshield. Any idea of the average cost to get that done?

Shouldn't be to much..I would call local window company and get a quote..every area is ddifferent.tell the windshields good..just needs a reseal..may be cheaper if you remove windshield and clean area..may give you a chance to address any rust issues, or pinholes in sheetmetal..

Mine leaked there until the windshield was replaced. Unlike you it needed a new one.

My 85 Hilux windshield glue is cracked all the way around so when it rains outside, it rains inside the cab just as bad. I am going to put a new windshield in and any rust that is found will be harshly dealt with.
