Rain Water On Inside Of Screen


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi I have recently noticed a small amount of rainwater running down the inside of the screen from the area behind the mirror .this only happens when driving and not when parked ,even in heavy rain ;There is a small gap in the seal in this area where the 2 ends meet, I have sealed this with black sealer for windscreens without success . Does this mean the seal needs replacing or is there any way water draining from the sunroof could cause this ? In view of the many problems people have had with replacement windscreens in the past any advice on going down this route would be appreciated . The screen does not appear to be original ,but has been fitted before I purchased the car

There could be various reasons for this but in my experience the sunroof drain holes would be the first to investigate. I used a thick nylon line with a tiny ball on the end, I think it's for getting electrical cables through walls etc.

If you fully open the sunroof the drain holes should then be visible you may need to look from above to see them or someones fitted your windscreen inside out! :whistling:

If it only happens when the car is moving it could still be a minute gap in the seal the wind pressure moving up the screen may be forcing the water past the seal.

You could try using a hosepipe on a jet spray aimed at the top of the screen to see if you get the same effect then try and zoom into the actual location of the leak by masking off sections.

Hi just make sure that if you have it changed/replaced that you have a oem one (that is) an original lexus one.
