Gday all. Recently ive added a new sound system to my au xr ute. When hiding wiring under the floor carpet on the passenger side i found that the underlay of the carpet was rather wet.

Thought at first that coolant may be leaking from the heater/aircon but after a few tests of pulling up the carpet and leaving the heater on, no leaks.

Was wondering if anyone had any ideas on what may be causing the problem?

Cheers!

there was a thread recently someone posted a cause for AU's leaking, but the search function is f**k so i cant post the link to it

Something to do with under the wiper motor theres cracks around the mounting holes i think?

Do you leave your windows open to fog up like a bastard at night?

Have you checked the drain plug for the AC?

More likely you are the result of your parents watching one :twisted:

I agree with checking that your A/C drain, it is common on any car to block up.

Ride: AU II XR6 UTE

Found today that the inside/underside of the seal around the drivers door is wet? Will replacing this be a possible fix it? Visually the seal looks OK?

or I was wondering if the water is leaking from under the windscreen down into the door seal, then under down seat and pooling down the back.

In any case, while I look at fixing the leak is it worth it pulling up all the carpet and replacing the underlay or just leave it to dry? If it underlay drys OK i don't mind just leaving it rather than pulling up the all seats, console, carpet, etc,etc..
