Hi all, I own a Holden Jackaroo 2000 model & with 3.5 Ltr petrol motor.
Where I live it has been very wet but the the other day my wife informed me water was coming in the top of the windscreen on the passenger side.

Then also I noticed the floor on the the drivers side front is also very wet.
I have checked heater hoses etc and the coolant level has not dropped.

Has anyone experienced this & what maybe the cause.

good chance the windscreen is the fault on both counts .
if it was coolant related it would be coloured the same as coolant
so checking hoses is not relevant , unless the A/Cond drain hose has become detached from the heater box

I had a wet floor because the AC drain hose was blocked. I could tell because there was usually a puddle under the car where the pipe came out on humid days, then there wasn't and the floor carpet started getting wet.

The urethane windscreen bond has let go. Get the windscreen replaced/resealed. most likely replaced, as it will be damaged/cranked getting it out.

Don't just run silastic along the top of the windscreen, as it will entrap moisture and create a potential corrosive environment.

Be wise as to who actually replaced the windscreen, so many fitters end up cutting the paint seal of the windscreen recess with knifes/blades in removing the old urethane seal and then becomes a bare metal environment for future rust development.
