It just could be the A/C

Never mind previous post I see its a convertible could be the gasket. My 92 always has this problem when it rains or I wash it.

Here is a pic of the back and my car it is at the dealership replacing the top right now. Angella also had to have her top replaced. (On her CAR). Sorry I just had to.

Check out the first picture of my top, huge gap all around the base of the top. I was lucky here, it did not rain while waiting for the top to come in and I was very careful when washing it, not to splash too much water in the gap. You may have the same problem.

That's what the back of mine looks like also,except the fabric below the window is even looser than yours.
Going back to the Dealer Thursday, hopefully it will be fixed by Monday.

I will be getting mine back tomorrow. They had to order a new top and that took 3 days to get in. My car went back in on Monday and it is taking 3 days to replace the top.
I hope yours does not do like Angella's, her rear window popped out.
Get it to the dealership ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Some early models had a problem with the water bag. The factory put a hold on several and had them repaired before they got shipped. Maybe yours slipped thourgh the cracks.

I'm new to the forum. Have my Camaro for 2 months with no issues, I found a puddle about two weeks ago in the passenger rear footwell. Took it to the dealer, they had the car for two days and could not find the lead. I get it home and the next day there's another puddle. Called the service department but they are not returning my calls. The top did not leak during hurricane Irene, but started about a week later. Anyone have any ideas of a fix.

I found a puddle in mine last week on the rear passenger side floorboard after I washed it. I thought maybe the door wasn't shut all the way and thought nothing else of it. Well today my husband drove my car to work and it was outside for a few hrs. in the rain and when he got in it to come home he happened to notice a huge puddle on the rear passenger side floorboard. I will be calling tomorrow to take it in and have it checked out for the leak, along with a few other issues. I am so tired of my car having issues constantly and GM doing little to nothing about the problems. I have had the car for 6 months and it has been in the shop at least 6 times. I love my car and was so excited when I ordered it, but enough is enough!

I'm sorry to see so many of you still having issues with your convertible tops. There is documentation that should address this issue. Ultimately your dealer would the one to make that call. If you need me to contact your dealers in regards to this let me know and I'll do my best to help.

Jeff,

Thanks for the offer, I plan to take the car to another dealer, (currently asking friends for their opinion of a great service department). The local dealer I took it to failed horribly. It doesn't seem that complicated of an issue. I do see a drain hole on the outside just below the molding of where the convertible top meets the body on the passenger side rear. I suspect that water is entering thru the drain but getting incorrectly diverted.

I took my car in today for the leak and this afternoon the service rep calls me and said they could not find any leaks. He said they performed the water test with their car wash and also with a hose and could find absolutely nothing. Needless to say I was extremely pissed because I know for a fact there was water on my rear passenger floor. Well anyway on the way to get my car it started pouring down rain and I was hoping that my car was outside so I could see if there was water and show them. Well it was parked outside and low and behold there was a puddle. They found that the hose that carries the water out from the water bag was kinked on the passenger side. They fixed it and are keeping my car so they can replace the carpet. Hopefully that really is the issue, but since we have rain every afternoon it won't take long for me to know for sure.

I had my top replaced and then noticed a leak that resulted in a PUDDLE in the rear passenger floorboard. I couldn't see it leaking from the roof line or anywhere else, inside or out. I took a garden hose with a gentle spray, and the water started seeping into the carpert.. resulting another puddle. Took it in to a different service department. They found a major problem with the "water management system". They have to replace the carpet, padding, even the rear passenger seat cushion (bottom).. they were completely soaked, even though I though I had dried it thoroughy.

TAKE YOUR CARS IN AS SOON AS POSSIBLE if you have water in the passenger seat floorboard.

Dealer still has my car.

Have you gotten your car back yet? I took mine in on 9/26 and it is still at the dealer. I talked to them Monday and they were waiting on the carpet to come in. I sure hope it looks good when I get it back.

Nope.. today is day 10. Went to see her yesterday, all the seats and carpet are out. :( Maybe time to put some wiring harnessess in for future mods, if I keep her.

Any way.. looks like the trim shop that replaced my top screwed things up horribly. Dislodged both drain tubes which resulted in all water being diverted into the rear passenger compartment.

In addition, there is a special hand cut (so I'm told) water proof fabric that collects water and diverts water to the drain tubes. My detail may be a bit off .. but the gist of it is.. either the trim shop cut that fabric, or it's been cut wrong since day one. Either way, it's apparantly a special part that must be hand cut or some such... and now the status as per the service manager.. "we are supposed to call and check status of the part on Friday.

So, 5 days in shop for first replacement of top. Now 10 days with no committment as to when the part will be available.

I am seinding my 15 day letter to GM. What a shame.
