I just purchased a 91 vette and have discovered that the driverside carpet gets wet when it rains. I assume that the weather stripping needs to be replaced. But I dont know which one. Any advise would be greatly apprieciated.
Congrats on the new vette and welcome to digitalcorvettes. Does it leak just on the door side or just at the console side or both. If it is just at the door side, make sure the carpet is dry. (Judical use of a hair dryer will work) Get in on the passenger side and get a buddy to start wetting down the door area with a steady stream of water but without much water pressure while you are inside looking for where the leak starts. A flashlight will help. If nothing shows up right away, increase the water pressure and spray from the front to the back until the leak starts. Also direct water around the windshield area and raise the hood and spray from the firewall side. Dont be in a big hurry or when you see the leak you could already be spraying in a new location. This might give you a start on finding the leak. Good luck
thanks for the welcome. I'm glad to be here.
The carpet is getting wet on the side. Where the speaker is. The peiece of carpet that you can actualy take out with like 2 or 3 screws. I looked and the door is wet as well on the bottome of the door where it meets the carpet. Should I just replace all of the weather stripping since its a 91. I'm just not sure how long the stripping normaly lasts on the vette.
I work at a dealer......
I have a sonic transmitter and electronic headsets i use to find air/water leaks
Most of my air/water leaks are found with a good visual inspection... LOOK at the seals and the inner fender... I'll bet you see the problem. If the windshield has been replaced look real close at the base of the windshield for water trails!!
