Lord, that '97 ws6 is so sleek and sexy looking. If it were legal to marry a car, that would be my bitch. I dream of one day restoring one of those just like the pic. The only changes will be a supercharged LSX motor, along with weld draglites for wheels.

Johnny, I have this same user name on ls1gto. Do a search under my name and find my thread asking about this, it's a fairly recent thread. Some posted a link to an actual TSB for this problem. I'm at work so I can't link it now but if I remember when I get home I'll do it.

ahh yes. I copied that onto a zip drive, along with the threads talking about the leaks, pics of the leaking areas, etc, when i went to pontiac to have ti fixed. They still basically told me to go F myself, and hand over some dough for them to fix it.

i was pissed to say the least. They **** up building something, dont stand behind their product, and then tell me to spend a few hundred to fix their **** up.... and they wonder why GM is having trouble.

i called the service department manager and told him all fo this, and then emailed him all the **** i had, the threads, the pics, the PDF from holden, etc.... he said he never heard of it and called gm and they knew nothing of it. he said to bring it in monday to take a look at. i am sure i will get the run around again. I think this guy was full of it about not knowing anything about the leak or tyhe announcement.

We will see what happens. Do any of you fellas work for GM or pontiac? Maybe someone can give me a hand?

sorry, took me a while ot get back here. I had everyhting out, seats, carpet all plastif panes, the front fender, the front inner fender, the rocker, i almost took the door off too, but found it before i got there haha. Not sure if i needed ot do all that, but i did. The dealership had it 4 times for a total of a month and never found it, it took me a good solid day of messing with everything.

HAha i was to frustrated to take pics, it was down around where the body seam where the lower part of the fender bolts to the frame. What was happeneing was the tire was spraying the water up and it was filling the rocker with water, then the rocker panel was overflowing into the floor pan.

The only time I have ever seen a place water "might" enter the car is in plain view. Wash your car then open the door to dry the door sill. If you look at the rubber weather strip it will be holding water in the V portion of it. Every other car I have paid any attention to in this area the weather strip had drain holes in it. The GTO (my 04 atleast) does not. That being said I have never had any problems.

The silicone on the vapor barrier is not sealed completely. This page will help you remove the door panel: http://evtransam.com/gto/ Once the door panel is off, seal the vapor barrier to the door completely. Also be sure the drain holes in the door are not plugged. You can also seal the speaker and its housing, just to be sure. If the vapor barrier (part discontinued) is badly damaged, you can get heavy duty vinyl from any fabric store, Home Depot, or hardware store and cut to fit. I used this to seal mine (Permatex 80855 Clear RTV Silicone Adhesive Sealant, 11 oz.): https://www.amazon.com/Permatex-8085.../dp/B000HBNUFO
