Trying to find a rain leak on the drivers side. Only happens when it rains only collects on the drivers side floor board and doesn't matter if car moves or not. I have two amp power wires on that side in the firewall too, any thing else to look at for source?

I didn't see anything noticeable when I pulled the cowl off a couple weeks ago.

There anit squat for trees let alone pine in my area. I miss GA and my ugly pine trees.

I replaced my cowl covers with the newer 94-97 MN12 style..

Before I replaced them..I had a similiar issue with the floor getting wet after it rained..

To fix the issue..I removed the the cowl covers, and liberally siliconed under the rubber seal that seats against the windshield..

I did one side at a time..

After that I didn't have anymore problems..

That might be worth looking into.. :zdunno:

So your cowl is not siliconed down to the window?

Well looks like I'm pulling the hinge and see whats there.

How likely could it be the the bulkhead connector?

One other thing I forgot to mention..The SuperCoupes are notorious for the firewalls cracking..

Hopefully that's not where your leak is coming from.. :(

I think it has something to do with the firmness of the suspension on the SuperCoupes without enough factory bracing..

You don't see it as often on other MN12s, but it does happen..

If you have done any mods to your suspension to stiffen it up..I would suggest using bracing in any place you can..

Here's an example of some of the bracing that would help eliminate chassis twisting, and cracks in various locations:

Thanks JL

Only suspension mods I'm aware of is Ebiach lowering springs 1.5".

I'll look for cracks but I believe that with the trunk leak its just age of sealant and not body flex.
