i have a 2011 FJ. In Feb 2018 had the front windshield replaced. Several months later there was a big puddle of water on the floor on the drivers side. Went back to the installer, they saw where the leak came from, fixed it. Last month there was heavy snow accumulations on the roof, after melting there was another puddle on the floor. Took it back, installer said it wasn’t coming from the windshield. I’ve NEVER had a problem with leaking until the windshield was replaced.
If it’s not the windshield then what is it? HELP????

most likely it is still the windshield but I have seen leaks coming from the roof rack where it bolts into the roof. easy way to fix the it if its the roof racks is to pull out the bolts and reinstall with some fipg on the threads

I was thinking of taking it through a car wash but a hose spot check will work. I’m thinking it’s still the windshield so this water hose test will tell.
Thanks all for your input.

You’ll find it. Water is a pain because it can travel all around. Just be methodical with the hose and be patient. My guess is still windshield but search around. Check other places as well for moisture.
