Hey guys, when it rains, i have water leaking into m car and getting my drivers seat wet. It seems to be coming from under my driver side pillar above my window...my window is closed all the way. Does anyone have a clue where this leak is? Is this a common issue? im replacing my headliner and dont want the new one to get ruined...

Is your car a sunroof, t-top, or hard top?

Probably where it's coming from then. Check the gasket, and pull it back to check if any of the steel has rusted through. The drains can get clogged, water can accumulate, rust out the metal, and some heavy leaking into the interior can happen. If the door glass is misaligned or loose, or the gasket around the door is worn or bad, water can leak in around the glass as well, but tends to happen more under pressure than from rain.

I have seen sunroof gaskets that are very dirty and have tree debris and such caked around the seal. It cannot keep water out for that reason too, clean it real good. If you ever park indoors you can leave the sunroof open to let the seal puff back out.

Ditto, clean it up, the gasket and grab a peace of paper from you printer, open the sunroof and slip the peace of paper all the way around, latch the sunroof down and try and pull the paper out. If it stays put and you can't pull it out or it is really hard to pull out start all over and do it again in the next spot. if it stays put all the way around the roof has a good seal. if its loose you may need to take the tabs off the front of the sunroof and bend them, take them off before bending them, or you risk the possibility of braking the glass.

if it is tight all the way around you should be good. but then have a helper with a garden hose run water all over the roof while you are inside to make sure its not something else.
