I own a 1995 Saab 900 SE Turbo. With the recent rains, I discovered an inside water leak above the right side window (back seat) that has saturated part of the headliner in that specific area and seems to be coming from above the headliner since the window seals are fine. What other gaskets or seals may be compromised and how do I access them? Also, my car has a sun/moon roof but it's leak free. Thanks for your help.

I have the same problem although my leak is from under the drivers seat, it is especially bad when the roads are really wet, I have same car 1995 900 se turbo, the sunroof is very water tight although I have had to replace the motor for the sunroof which was suprisingly easy. Terry @ all saab +61395613399 has pllllllllenty o' parts all saab, all models and he's a half decent bloke. Anyway back to your leak problem, if you go to the back of the roof where the roof meets the hatch, the rubbers tend to come a bit loose letting water seep down towards the front of the roof and in turn saturating your interior roof.I would say take the rubbers off and give them a good clean and applying a small but saffice amount of silicone glue, DON"T BE TEMPTED TO GO OVERBOARD WITH THE SILICONE GLUE, as it can become v. Messy.I recomend a black silicone, well my SE NG is black but also because the rubbers are black. Let me know how it turns out. Cheers. Amos.

Thanks for trying to answer my water leak problem, but, after some further inspection, I found that the seal around the top of the rear window was actually the culprit. It required me to remove the short roof panel directly above the rear window. First remove the two outside screws-one where the rear of the roof meets the top of the hatch, and one underneath the rubber gasket inside the door frame. In addition, there is a retaining nut on the interior that also has to be accessed and removed located above the headliner. I also sealed the window using a silicone based seal, but the area of the problem isn't openly visible, so color wasn't a factor. I'm sure your solution will probably help someone else. Thanks again.
