    Anybody with a first gen ever experience water leaking on the front passenger side bottom wall closest to the door? It's not totally soaked but when it rains a few drops seems to come in by the wall near the floor of the passenger side. It has been raining a few days and I took the truck to work and noticed that my floor mat was collecting water. Wondering where I should start checking. Thanks in advance for your help.

    There is a TSB on this. IIRC there was a bad sealing job around the lower firewall on the pass side. The fix was just a bead of sealer on the joint. Sorry but I don't remember the exact spot.

    You mentioned "when it rains" so AC condensate issues should be discounted.

    Yup I just found the TSB. I'm going to try and tackle this one and put sealant where it needs to be.

    I've had the same problem for a while now. Flushed the ac drain, thought it might be the windshield seal. Where can I find the TSBs?
