Subject: Re: Water leakage


I have the exact same car and had the exact same problem just a few weeks ago. The leak was coming from the rubber seal on the windshield which was starting to pull away near one of the three metal brackets under the seal. Depending on where the broken seal is, the water can drip down into almost anything - in your case the heater core. There are three metal brackets under the seal: one near the VIN plate, one in the centre and the third on the opposite side. Rather than having the windshield remounted (which is apparently difficult due to these metal brackets), I went down to a local glass repair shop and he simply ran a bead of black sealant along the top of the rubber seal. Done! No more leaks. Hope this helps you out.
