2001 Grand Vitara XL-7. Windows are closed but after it rains I notice the front driver & passenger mats are damp, but after a windy downpour they are soaked. How's the rain getting in? Any ideas. Thanks.

Check the heater.. It can sometimes fill with water when the drainage pipe is blocked..

Yup i agree. And usually it will be a spider egg case. You just started using the a/c and all the moisture is building up. Easy fix.

heater leak location

Hey JerseyJo did you find the source of the leak?

Hi Magnat007 and 96Geotrack for the heater where exactly would one check? Can I look under hood or beneath the car?

I'm not a motorhead (I only change the oil on my motorcycle) so perhaps I need to have a mechanic do the checking.

I have a 2004 XL-7 and I hardly ever run the AC since I bought it in 2010. One or two weeks each year on average. Ran heater pretty regularly 2 - 3 months a year when we were in Idaho. Car has been garaged almost 100% since 2010. Don't know details before then.

I've only averaged about 2000 (two thousand!) miles a year on this SUV since 2010 !! Super low miles over the last 5 years.

Any advice is appreciated... I'm losing my mind trying to find source and fix since we only have a 1 car garage right now.

Thanks, Josh
