Wet Carpet in rear of Suburban

Recommended Posts

Last summer, I was fiddling around and found the carpet in the rear of my Suburban - behind the third seat - was wet. I pulled it up and dried it along with the padding.


I have barn doors. I pulled the weatherstrip off, cleaned it and put it back with weatherstrip adhesive. Never thought about it again.


I was 'fiddling' again today and found the carpet to be wet again. :cheers:


Has anyone with a Burb, Hoe or Yukon with or without barn doors had this problem? Is there somewhere else in the rear of these vehicles that water could be getting in? Most annoying!

Do you have rear air?  If so, the drain may be plugged up...





Yes and I checked it. Plus I haven't run the air for a while.


I pulled the carpet up and only the very back of the carpet i.e. that closest to the barn doors is wet so I figure it is the weatherstrip. I pulled it off again and this time slapped some good old clear bath caulk on it before putting it back.


I have all the carpet up and the interior plastic removed. Now waiting for rain so I can see if water is still getting in.
