  • Damn Passenger side water leaks!! 56k no no

    Decided to go ahead and rip out the blower motor on my DA considering the whole cowl fix didn't make my leak go away. So having the blower motor out of the way HOPEFULLY i'd be able to see where the damn leak was coming from.

    -Started by removing the top cowl piece which everyone hates because of the chance of breaking-


    -After the exterior was done I went to work on the interior pieces and had the blower motor out and everything else in about 45 minutes-


    -After all the pieces I needed to remove were out of the way I could FINALLY see the air duct and hopefully see where the leak was coming from(I know everyone hates this piece of crap, so I threw in the finger for everyone haha)-


    After that I had my sister pour a bucket of water on that side of the windshield to figure out where the leaks were coming from. LOW and BEHOLD I see water dripping from two spots, And it's a pretty fast leak.

    -Here's the first leak(white piece).-


    -If your wondering what that part is on the outside it's this.(the silicone thats on there I have no clue where that came from, think it was already there before I fixed the cowl the first time)-


    -Second leak(White piece, that old boot you see isn't leaking, thats siliconed shut from the first fix lol)-


    -What that is on the outside-


    So after finding all the damn leaks I siliconed and covered those two spots on the outside to prevent and further water from entering in from those two clips. There are more of those clips along the window but I don't think those matter considering their far from where the vent and will probably not leak that way. Hopefully this cures the damn leak from now on, and I don't have to worry about washing my car or rain anymore haha.

    -After all that damn work of clips, bolts, trying to yank out that giant blower motor from that tiny cramped space everything is back to normal- END RANT

              My brother has the same problem. He is even considering selling the car because of all of the leaks the integra gets. Trunk, etc.

                all the leaks in the trunk are pretty easy to find. Usually Taillight gaskets or sunroof drains or bad trunk seal, at least their easy to get to compared to this crap lol

                        Thanks for the pics. I'm in the same boat (hehe). I did the TegTips leak fix and it still leaked after the first heavy rain. I don't think the TegTips mentioned the two offending white clips, only the rubber seals. Maybe this needs to be amended to the original tip (HERE) to save others from having to do this twice.

                          sol1d, did you replace the white thing that caused your second leak or does anyone know the part number?

                            I had recently replaced the rubber boots and sealead everything under the cowl. We recently had our first good downfall for the fall and 100% leak free! I'm glad my car is 100% solid again. Hopefully I'll report back in the Spring and say the leak is gone forever, at least for another 14 years
