The drill hole size of 3/16" shown in this TSB is pretty small for a drain hole.TheRidgester said:The dreaded water leak?? they finally admit!
I agree 100% regarding this TSB not revealing the whole problem.There was a post from a member who went to a wedding and it rained hard while his RL was parked. When he drove away water spilled on his feet from under the dash. Now, how could that have come from a leak in just the right A pillar, isn't there a sound block also in the left A pillar? What about all the leaks in the rear area possiblly from around the top rear brake light trim piece or rear window?JimVickers said:I have been concerned about the potential for water leaks since before I made my RL purchase.It is beneficial that Honda has issued a TSB on the front compartment water leak. However, I am not confident that this TSB will correct all front compartment leaks.
Over months of reading many posts regarding an assortment of Dealer solutions to this problem it appears that there are various causes for the front compartment leak. The Honda TSB only proposes one solution which I doubt will address all causes for the leak.
Wow, your fast!!! Thought I deleted that earlier post within 30 seconds.ladyridge said:Wow...Joe..did you ever delete that fast.
The robot ran out of goop before anyone caught it. Must not be a goop out alarm.vertrkr said:I'm a little suprised the only fix is a drain hole. I would think water should not be getting into that area between the panels in the first place. There's about 20,000 falling into that VIN range but I suspect not all have the leak issue, I fall in the VIN range but haven't had a leak yet but I don't recall driving in rain for extended distances either so I'm still worried. I'm really hoping it's the seam filler goop robot that missed on occasion for the seam behind the wheel well but Honda can't pin point it to specific VINs so they just called out a broad range. Still I think Honda should fix the source of the water not just fix where it exits. First hard rain storm I'll suck it up and drive for a while and see what happens.

I wonder where the water enters above the rubber sound block and if debris can also enter and eventually plug this small drain hole years down the road and cause the problem again.
My s/n falls within the TSB vin numbers shown.
I haven't had any leaks yet but finally had a couple good rains. I'll bet that there is water building up above that rubber sound block and will eventualy spill over onto the passanger side floor.
That might explain why I haven't seen any leakage yet after a few rains and washings.
Boy, am I getting paranoid or what?

It appears from the last page of the Trouble in Paradise thread that there has not been a resolution to this one yet.
