    Hey all.

    I’ve got a leak problem that I need help trying to locate where it’s coming from.

    my front drivers side has wet carpet after every rain. I used to have a leak that would drip from the hand hold, but I stopped that. I thought it had started again so I went out and checked while it was raining. That leak has STOPPED.

    Now the drip comes from under the dash, right about the emergency brake foot pad. In fact, the water drips off of the bottom edge of that emergency brake foot pad.

    Do you all have any ideas where that would come from and how it would start up now after all these years?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks all and keep yourself safe!

    I know the pickups usually leak from the Windshield sealing area.

    Check the rubber (accordion style) rubber conduit between the door and the A pillar (by the door hinges).

    Ensure it is not torn, or dislodged where it is fitted into the A pillar. It is a press-fit, and can be kinked or dislodged.

    Water can enter the A pillar at the conduit contact point, and leak onto the floor - from behind the kick panel by the parking brake foot pad assembly.

    If you have a sunroof it's the drain leaking.
