Chevrolet Sonic Repair Manual / Body / Glass & Windows / General / Stationary Window Waterleak Repair

Warning:

If any water enters the vehicle interior up to the level of the carpet or higher and soaks the carpet, the sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) and the SDM harness connector may need to be replaced. The SDM could be activated when powered, which could cause deployment of the air bag(s) and result in personal injury. Before attempting these procedures, the SIR system must be disabled. Refer to Disabling the SIR System.

With the ignition OFF, inspect the SDM mounting area, including the carpet. If any significant soaking or evidence of significant soaking is detected, you must perform the following tasks:

  1. Remove all water.
  2. Repair the water damage.
  3. Replace the SDM harness connector.
  4. Replace the SDM.

Failure to follow these tasks could result in possible air bag deployment, personal injury, or otherwise unneeded SIR system repairs.

  1. If the floor carpet is wet refer to Floor Carpet Drying.
  2. Remove the trim moldings or the headliner in order to repair the leak, if needed.
  3. Determine the source of water entry.
  4. If water is leaking at the edge of the windshield, reseal the windshield using Urethane Adhesive Caulking Kit GM?€‰P/N?€‰12346392 or the equivalent.
  5. If water leaks into the vehicle at the sides of the stationary windows, reseal the window using Urethane Adhesive Caulking Kit GM?€‰P/N?€‰12346392 or the equivalent.
