    AC grommet leaking

    Found out I had water in the passenger foot well. Found out it was coming from my AC grommet that I hadnít seated properly from doing my AC. I replaced the grommet and made sure it was installed correctly but it still leaks. I tried silicone but had no luck. With more investigation it looks like there is a leak which drips water onto that grommet when I fill the engine cowl with water. The water comes from the engine hood hinge mount(the upper one). It just drips onto the AC grommet and then leaks into the car. Cannot figure out how to stop either leak. Stopping one would solve my problem. Any ideas?

    Water should not have a way to enter your engine compartment. Not exactly sure what "filling the cowl with water" means but do you have the rubber seal this sits on the top lip of the fender and goes around the engine comp ?

    Is your elephant trunk plugged and are you sure your AC drains are open ?

      There’s a thread from 2012 that describes my problem. There’s a crack in the seam sealer inside the cowl where it meets the frame and fender drain. This is allowing water into the engine compartment by the battery. I tried using some seam sealer but I’m not 100% sure where the crack is

            Yeah I just removed mine again and loaded it up with silicone. Hopefully that fixes it.
