Water ingress / leak

Recommended Posts

After a heavy rainfall there is water ingress inside my car. The lower A pillar trim is damp as per the photo which shows the location. The water is then making it's way behind the dash onto the passenger carpet. I have removed the exterior plastic A pillar trim and resealed where the windscreen meets the A pillar but this hasn't fixed the problem (the original seal looked ok as well). I've also checked the window seals and can't see a problem there. Has anyone had water ingress in this location? I'm very perplexed about how the water is getting in. Many thanks!

Probably irrelevant, but I had the same on my XC60 and it was the windscreen seal. The windscreen looked sealed/perfect so I doubted Volvo and thought it was the Pano-roof leaking and water finding a route down, but sure enough re-sealing the windscreen fixed the leak.

Mine had this issue. The dealer sealed the A-pillar from the inside, along with some window tweaks - so I'm not 100% sure where the water was getting in.

Will try that, I have pulled the inside A pillar trim back before to run a cable so will have a look in there. Thanks
