    Fix for wet carpets

    I was able to solve the wet carpet problem last summer and posted instructions on how to fix it. Do a search for: Got a Wet Matt ?? You'll find my instructions near the bottom of the page. Hope it helps you guys.

    Hi Laurie
    I discovered my mat was wet yesterday.
    What dealer are you taking it to? Welcome to Oregon, I guess.

    It was wet (soaked) on thedrivers side.
    Removal of seat and carpets.I took the garden hose and put it on my windscreen, during which I crawled in the car.
    I found out it was the top left hand side grommet , which feeds electric wiring through the scuttle.
    After applying a sealant, the mats remained dry until this very day!

    Is the SCUTTLE the same as the firewall?
    Thanks, Roy

    Thank-you, for the info. Dutchguy!! I will pass that on to the service guys at the dealership! Hi Roy! I've been going to Braley & Graham! 'Steve Surrey', is the guy that I've been 'dealing' with there! Is 'Mike' the short, happy guy, with a mustache? He's been handing out those VX. info cards, that you gave him!! I'm going to ask for him, when I make my appointment, to get the,"WCS", addressed!!

    i had this problem from what i found was the culprit was the rubber boot that goes through the firewall on the drivers side. when i ran my amp power through it i forgot to snap it all the way back into place leaving a little gap just enough for a small trickle to come in. popping it back into place seemed to fix it and so far its been nice and dry inside.

    Seems to be a 99 ironman and 2000 and 2001 problem? Any other variations involved? My '99 Black and Astral (knock on wood) are water tight. Make that two '99 ebonys I've owned have been dry. And we live in upstate New York.

    Unless the stickers are causing the leaks I don't think it's possible that this is an Ironman-specific issue.

    Don't say that. Perhaps the Ironman editions were built by a different crew that consistently made some error???

    Maybe... but that's hard to imagine.

    "Okay guys, today we're going to divide you into two teams. Joe and Lenny, you guys are really good at putting stickers in the right place, so you're going to manufacture only Ironmans from the ground up. The rest of you go back to making all 5 other colors!"

    I don't know that it's related to a design defect or anything - seems more likely that its caused by leaking seals due to age or poor glass replacement.

    Doesn't hurt to ask though.
