Re: Mysterious Rain Ingress
Check that the water is not getting in via the door window seals or the door
seals themselves. Also check that it is not coming from the front portion
and running back to the passenger side. If the water tastes sweet then it is
coolant leak into interior running back to rear (goes under the carpeting).
I had a very similar situation with a '92 945 where the water was coming in
at left front wiring grommet just in front of door which goes through the
inside wall of the wing. Stuck the grommet back into position and no more
