Is it only when going through a car wash, i.e., not during/after a heavy rain?whenever I run my 05 through the car wash I end up with a soaked cabin air filter. This, in turn, means little to no air flow through the HVAC system.
I haven't looked more closely at the area of the guide pin and hole that's at the center of the problem, but it seems to me that if the pin fits loosely in the hole, there would be far more posts here and elsewhere about water coming into the HVAC and cabin, not only in car washes but in any steady heavy rain.thanks, Plain OM, for the videos.
Tunnel style friction car wash, engine running. There is quite a bit of "sheeting" down the windshield like in the vids. I was thinking that the dryer is also part of the problem, but I think I'm going to have to rig up a cover for the HVAC inlet.
