Leaking windshield

Hi there seems to be a leak in my windshield seal, when I go down hill with water on the roof some water drips inside. Anyone had this happen, going to call up Safelite and see what can be done.

Re: Leaking windshield

I always use Safelite. I've had them re-seal my windshield once. But they will tell you upfront that there's a high probability of breaking your glass upon removal. New glass installed is $180, so if your glass breaks new glass isn't much more than just R&R'ing your glass. And it'll probably be easier to see through too. I never noticed how pitted my windshield was once until I had the new one put it. I drive in the mountains enough I just plan on doing it every spring.

Re: Leaking windshield

Waiting for them to call back, new glass would be nice, mine is somewhat pitted and when the California sun goes down you can see how bad it is. Geico picked up the bill for a chip repair last time I used them, they might pick up the windshield replacement.

Re: Leaking windshield

I had a similar situation. It started a couple years ago with a little water dripping in on the passenger side when I went downhill after either a long rain, or after snow had melted off the roof. I thought the windshield was leaking. Since I had lots of little moutain driving pits in the windshield, I decided to have the windshield replaced. It didn't fix the leak. Our Penthouse top had lots of deep cracks in the gel coat, so I figured it was the top. In November, we had Sportsmobile replace the top with the new coating and the electric option. I had mentioned to Peter that we had a leak in the roof somewhere. Before we picked up the van at Sportsmobile, Peter had the guys water test the roof. It still leaked. They took down the cubbys over teh windshield and pulled back the ceiling to see where the water was coming in. They found the leak. It was actually on the driver side, near the top corner of the windshield, where the roof gutter is welded to the roof by the pillar. They patched it and it hasn't leaked since. Our van is a 2004. oclv
