Guys,

My '55 2 door Bel Air lets quite a bit of water in at the front bottom of each door. I don't see any water coming down the door panels so it must be coming in someplace else. How would anyone suggest I trouble shoot and resolve this?

Thanks!

That's The Mystery!

The J Gaskets are in place and they're new and tight, just like all the other strips... Can't figure this out just yet...

Thanks for the reply!

Tom,

Thanks for the heads up on this! I'll check it... I never knew there was a tube in there!

Tom, I checked my shop manual but can't see where the hose connects on top and where it should be routed. Do you know?

Thanks Again!

The connection on top is inside, under the dash? How far from the center of the windshield? And if I take the kick panel piece of upholstery off I should see the tube?

Thanks!

The tubes will be connected to the dash in the curved area on the outer sides. I can look up and see the tubes on my 57 going out the side. I really doubt that is your problem unless you have a bad windshield leak too.

Charlie,

Thanks for the clarification! If those hoses are for interior condensation only, that can't be the problem. It only occurs when I wash the car.
