Dodge Dakota Water Leak Due to HVAC Case Not Sealed at Bulkhead

(18 reports)

If the HVAC (heater) housing is not properly sealed at the bulkhead (firewall), water can leak into the passenger compartment. Foam sealant should be used to seal any gaps and the evaporator drain tube can be modified to prevent further water entry.
