Front Passenger Leak in '08 Aurion

Recommended Posts

Hi,

My Aurion 08 has developed a leak on the passenger side. It may have been going for a while as I did notice some mouldy smell a few months ago, but perhaps it's worse with of all the rain NSW sent over to WA recently.

Anyway, I have tested with a squirt water bottle many times and it's definitely NOT the windscreen, but it leaks when I get the water squirted just below the bottom left of the windscreen. It's hard to see where it's coming in from the inside as I can only get so far up the left hand side of the firewall under the glove box.

Anyone else?

Any ideas?

Any help appreciated.

It might be worth checking you mudflaps and mud guards on the passenger side front wheel. What's probably happening is water is being pushed past the mud guard and spraying the floor pan and fire wall. Which would eventually find it's way into the driver's compartment and ultimate wet the carpet which will start to rot. I'd start there.

Got the same problem on Driver side, I cannot see where it coming in, I do have a sun roof pipes are clear.
I think I will check the passenger now, that your is leaking as well.

Update, still leaking, but I found the cause, I remembered I had the Sunroof, repaired, and guess what the tube had fallen off on driver side.
Bloody Toyota dealership, I could kick them up their b*m.
No more leaks.
