  1. Headliner getting wet.

    First Generation Ridgeline (1G 2006-2014)
    07 Ridgeline. I'm experiencing water infiltration at the passenger side head liner. Upper corner starting at the windshield traveling towards the rear. Someone suggested that a tube or channel is blocked on the sun/moon roof? Does anyone know how to fix this?
  2. Small leak above side airbag

    1G Problems & Issues
    I noticed a small amount of wetness right above the side air bag during the last big rain in my 09 RTL. It got wet enough to drip once or twice, but I could not find any wetness under my floor mats while this was happening. Any pointers on where I should start looking for this leak? I...
  3. Another Oil Leak

I just changed my plugs (105,000 miles) for the first time. When removing the coil plugs I found one had a moderate amount of...
  6. Water in trunk

    1G Problems & Issues
    I opened my trunk the other day after we had some hard rain and found it had 6-8 inches of water in it. After investigating I found the trunk lid was a little loose. I loosened the catch for the latch and lowered it, then re-tightened the bolts. We had some heavy rain today, and no water in the...
  7. Water trapped inside door?

    1G Problems & Issues
    It sounds like water is trapped inside the rear door (or something like that). I can hear it slosh around at slow speeds. Also after parking my Ridgeline for awhile, I have a wet spot centered about the middle of the front/back doors. I searched here but did not see anything related to this...
