Leak!!

Hey guys I have a 2002 E-250 Traverse with a Salem Kroger conversion. Iím getting water coming in on the passenger side floor area right around the front edge of the step. I canít seem to trace to the source but itís pretty bad any amount of rain and its WET. Iíve taken off the side plastic cover but again donít see anything. Iíve heard it could be the Windshield?? Thanks for any help!!

Garage
I had similar a while back - It may seem too obvious to even mention, but I hadn't realized where my leak was originating from either...until my wife pushed the top of the door gasket back into place... it slipped down about 3/4" (I have several wires that run underneath) and the glue had no longer been holding the gasket in-place. Consequently, there was just enough of a gap to allow water to enter - not a whole lot, but enough to make the floor carpet wet. The water would run down along the inside edge of the door frame. Didn't help my ego much at the time, but solved the problem.

Wow I have to check in the morning but if this is the case I’d be thrilled and feel like a dummy... Hahha thanks!!

FWIW as originally built the on-body door seal isn't held by any sort of adhesive--it simply fits snugly over the pinch weld body seam and tends to stay in place by itself.

Of course if you run wires etc under it a small dab of 3M Weatherstrip adhesive would work wonders maybe placing it at the top corners only. Don't over do this application as it might be necessary to remove the seal at some point in the future and too much will make this difficult and/or possibly damage the semi-expensive door seal.

I just checked the seal around the door is completely fine and in the right spot. That donít not seem to be the area where water is coming in. Still trying to figure it out...
