Water leak on driver side of 06 Sierra crew cab SLE

Recommended Posts

Just bought sietta crew cab 1500 a month ago, has 94000 miles on it and runs and looks great. Until it rained for 3 days straight and there was water under hood latch on driver side. Does anyone have any fixes for it? And truck came with after market rims, caps say cruisin alloy. Been trying to find more information on them to decide if I want to keep them and replace a few caps or get rid of them. Any help on either subject would be greatly appreciated!

Looks like a standard cap. When you take the rim off the cap will pop out the back side. Take some measurements and order 4 replacements. New caps wont have the name, so they should look even better.

 

If it has a sun roof it would likely be in relation to the drain tube failing or being plugged.

For my truck, the door hinges were replaced, and water leaked in through the bolt holes for the new hinges.

No sunroof, but been going through forum and  think it's either in the door panel or coming through fire wall. Going to check back vent also. I've never had aluminum wheels and don't know much about how sturdy they are. The roads where I live are garbage. Years ago I had chrome 20's and a new pot hole that came up over night caught me off guard and ruined both passenger side rims. Any need to worry about those?

Lots of possibilities. If you have the repair history, check to see if they did any work on that she is the truck.
- door hinge per prior post
- door weather stripping
- weather seal inside the door
- grommets on the firewall
- windshield air intake has a drain that could be plugged
- windshield leak

Thinking door weather stripping or firewall. Working out of town right now so going to try and find the time to start on it this weekend. I use some pretty good sealant stuff at work, so going to try a little bead under stripping on both driver side doors and fire wall, unless there is an easier fix I'm not aware of

I had the exact problem. Found it to be the back vent and third brake light. Completely removed back seat to access the vent.
