    Default Leaking rain water

    Hi ALL, new to this site. Just found it, & haven't looked around much but I have a SERIOUS rain leak on my wife's '06 Savana Regency conversion van. Had the van 5+ years, never leaked before. We've had BIG rain for the past week or so and the pass. side floor is soppin' wet up front. The van has some oak leaves in the cowl area. I wondered if this body style van has a drain or something that can get clogged up and cause an inside leak. This van has been a pleasure and hate to see it soggy inside. Thanks in advance for your help. I'm in E. central Fl. and we're gonna get another big rain this afternoon I'll bet.

    Is the headliner by the windshield wet? If possible durring the rain, if it does rain there tonight, you should sit in the van and try to hear/see where it may be coming in. Make sure it has been raining a bit before you start to look because it may take time for the leak to start.

    One way to check for leaks is to get a REALLY bright flashlight and to go around all the rubber trim (ie window, air ducts, doors) and to see if any light makes it in. If you can see light coming through than water can make it in too.
