bad water leak at a pillar

Recommended Posts

ok car had a water leak on passengers side headliner were it joined a pillar trim (curtain airbag soaking wet) then drivers side same started so I sealed rubber to sunroom with black mastic so it still opens and now passengers side isn't wet but drivers is worse than b4 (soaking most of trim, dripping down in couple o places and curtain airbag soaking), so can anyone point me in rite direction?

Have you checked the drain holes are clear. They will run down through the pillars to the engine bay or wheel arches. Try pouring water through and perhaps clear with thin wire.

Sometimes the plastic pipe shrinks with age and then becomes detached.

Only cure is to carefully lower the head lining and see if that's the problem.

I've seen a bodge mod somewhere but can't find it.

It may have been on the American jaguar forum.
