    i'm guessing

    this "blower" stuff has something to do with the A/C? my car's a/c don't work becuz there is no belt on the pulley of my compressor which looks toasted too. anyways it was pouring all day today and after work i get in my car, its raining and all and my peice of paper i use to take notes is wet a little bit so i take it and turn on the fan to dry it a bit and i hear water dripping. i look around and notice its leaking.. im guessing the same thing that says in this thread but i'm asking will it only leak if i use the a/c fan? because this is the first time it's happened.. if it is just that then i won't use the fan anymore to stop it for good.

      Anyways, already gutted the rear, about to take apart the entire front end. Sigh. Poured a gallon of sealant on the cowl last time, I guess I'll be approaching this from the inside. *Sigh* here we go for the 5th time.

        If it rains anymore it'll slowly fill up the blower and overflow. While it fills up the blow it'll either fry it or rust it up causing it not to work at all while letting water into the cabin.

          What do you mean? I kinda get it but I have gone to check this morning because it was raining hard all day yesterday but no leaks. I didn't want to test it by turning on the A/c fan so I just left it as is. I'm guessing it didn't overflow because after I turned it on yesterday and realized it. It slowly dripped and what not.

            It'll start leaking sooner or later because the water trapped in the blower will start to break down the metal or seals holding in the water right now. The water will cause the fan to short and rust the metal parts, and sooner or later it'll eat through the rubber parts.

            So next time it rains really hard it'llf ill up the blower again. Your fan might now bet working for much longer if it shorts it out or rusts out the metal pieces inside.

                  No, why would I remove the blower? I wouldn't have a fan if i did. I removed the blower just to see where the leak was coming from and put it back.

                  The blower is white. The black thing could be your condenser or if you have no a/c the bypass pipe.

                      Yes but I'd be afraid to know how much they would charge...probably over $300 because of labor...

                        you can go to the shop and have them put the turbo on and tune and everytihgin or even swap the motor but it will cost u crazy amount of money and why it seems like a easy fix im gonna start working this tomorow because im in florida and its starting to rain everyday now, got to love raining season.

                          Well the third time I'm doing this on my third different Integra... I'm getting to be an expert but it's a pain...plus all the parts this time cost me $72. And that was getting a break from the dealer because he couldn't understand why Acura jacks up these parts so much.
                          So hopefully after taking care of this no more leak for another 14 years.

                          As you can see I used HondaBond underneath all the new rubber seals and the plastic parts which also leak.

                            The parts list...

                            Well for everyone that may be interested.. i needed to replace the front windshield .. so i went a head and order all the new window moldings, blower cover,the big plastic cowl on top, along with every plastic plus and every pressure screw that goes on this assembly of the car ( mine where either missing of cracked/or philips head was damaged do to previous owner. So i order everything from the dealer new. Hopefully this will do the trick for the leaks. ( including those white clips which also take some type of "gasket" to prevent leaks, as the dealer man said.

                            here goes part list..

                            QTY - PART # - DESCRIPTION AS READS ON PRINT OUT

                            AND $$ SPENT $277.83 ( i used to work at acura and know that parts guy hence the prices =) .. if u go haggle them on prices or prepare to bend over back wards.. example with out my discount .. almost $500 ....$3.99 for plastic blower cover expanding screw (plastic).. lol thats not what i paid =)
