water coming in near emergency brake

I hope I'm not the only one that has had this issue. I've noticed that when my car is parked for the night and we get some rain, the next afternoon when I leave for work and I'm backing out on my driveway, water is spilling onto my pants/sneakers. it's not a lot, but it's still annoying and I don't believe water should be getting inside the cabin like this...


has anyone else had this issue? the problem I've had with the local kia dealership near me for other issues (I haven't taken it in for this issue yet) is that they won't do anything unless they can physically replicate the issue while it's in their hands..

Has your windshield ever been replaced, and not sealed all the way around?
try running water down by the wipers but not on the windshield.
Then try water near bottom of windshield.
After that run water up near the top of windshield.
Do this on different days. If you can find where it is coming from
much easier for dealer to duplicate.

Windshield in mine had to get replaced because of a leak around the lower part of the seal. Factory installed window, covered under warranty this was my saga thread:

thanks for the link. your issue is/was similar to mine - getting wet on the drivers side, just above my left foot by the e-brake pedal. I'll call my local dealership to have them look at it while they do my oil change and tire rotation here soon.

If you read my thread, you'll see going to the dealership many times, telling them initially what I thought it was, and even told by an expert that it was from a wire i ran from the battery through the grommet in the firewall. All because they will inspect/diagnose, or take coffee breaks all day, it takes a unique situation to show it's leaking. I happened to be driving near the dealership during a torrential rain, pulled in, found my adviser, which needless to say, the adviser is your golden ticket, you get one that you can communicate well with, he will get things done for you that other customers can't...after that windshield st!t, he and i are tight, i tell him what I think it is, and he works from there and gets it done, even with that we still had to wait a few weeks for the windshield even. What I'm getting at...there are easier ways to get a windshield replaced...

I'm taking my wife's car in for the inspection, oil change and tire rotation next week. while there, I'll mention to them that my cadenza keeps dropping water near the emergency brake when it rains out and that several people with cadenzas (I'll mention this forum) have all had the same issue and had to have their windshield resealed/replaced. I'll get them to run a hose on it if they need to. really, the burden should be on them, especially when a car is bone stock and has less than 20k on it...


nonetheless, I appreciate all of the replies in this thread. someone had sent me a PM earlier to mention that he's having the same exact issue in his 2014 cadenza and hasn't been able to replicate it while at his local kia dealership, but thanks to this thread, he's going to take it in again..
