Water… water… everywhere :(

So, latest challenge for the Rover and I is a wet driver side floor pan. AND I’ll tell you this tracing water down is ‘fun’…

I first went with what had changed last – several months ago my windshield was replaced, and it has had some issues afterwards. SO went ahead with the assumption that the water was coming from there. Being new to a town and looking for a trust worthy service center added to my challenge. You never truly know if you are entrusting your rig with someone who will treat it right.

This time I think it was a good choice – Kingston Autoglass the owner – Leo spent some time to show me what could be the issue and ALSO was clear that the glass might not be my issue.

Sadly, two things happened ­čśŽ first the water leak continued… not good. ┬áSecond the in windshield heater was damaged when they did the maintenance ┬áOH and that is not covered by the work they did ­čśŽ so now I have half a heated windshield. ┬áBUMMED!

I continued the hunt… found where the water is coming out… it is the seam at the base of the A pillar – in the drivers foot well. ┬áSO I went and bought seam sealer, and cleaned up the joints and sealed away…. only to have my dreams crushed as water continues to ingress ­čśŽ

Continue to watch here… I am still on the hunt for the leak. ┬áRight now, next thing to check is the rain gutters – research has uncovered that the Safety Devices rack might be causing the seam┬áto crack and leak. ┬áMore info to follow.
