bilmem Leaking Issue

hey everyone been awhile huh?! Just been busy with this and that you know how it is! Any who...got an issue I hope you can help with. I have water leaking into the Vette driver side. I have checked what I can check and havent found anything clogged. I inspected around the window and all that area cant seem to find a damn thing, but I get water in. Also, since I drove my car to VA for school it has been sitting out side the other day the window had condensation on the inside...yup inside... so what say you?

Pull the windshield cowl off, and check the udders. If they get clogged, water can go anywhere. Including inside.
The condensation is due to changing temps, and the interior having some form of dampness in it.

The interior issue has never never happen before and its sat outside winter fall summer etc...did it just decide to act weird now? I have looked at the utters and no issues there, unless I have looked at the wrong one/area?? Could it be the window seal?

When my windshield was replaced mine would leak right above the peddals. I had to reseal the upper driver-side window trim. The foam seal between the plastic and the body was not correctly installed. Yours may have slowly wore out to the point where it is now dripping.

I am hunting the same thing. I am going to remove my cowl and check things out. I had the weather stripping and molds replaced on both sides and nothing leaks on the passenger side. I really thinking the windshield has been replaced and something was probably not completely installed correctly. It rarely leaks, but it is something I am looking into.

Good luck with your find.
