Got some water leak through the groomet on firewall. Got the groomet fixed but still suspect that the water should not come close to the groomet. Any ideas? Shall I fix something else close to the windshield?


Please search vvJQ7ryZ2eQ or wC71-38G-QE on youtube for the videos. I am too new to post a link.

Thanks.

I had the dealer done TSB, but it is still leaking. Dealer asked me to replace the whole cowl ($600+). Some other dealers suggest only replace the strips on cowl. So I asked my dealer only to replace the strips on cowl (~$120). After replacing the strips, it is still leaking. Now it seems I can only replace cowl?
May I suggest taking it to a local body shop and actually find the leak before throwing more money at it.
