leak at passenger side 200 1992

This leak appears to be a serious trouble with all 240s. The pan in the cowl dumps squarely on the wiper grommet, and it is the outer dimension of the grommet (where it fits the sheet metal) which leaks. Can invade the ignition computer.

After verifying on three cars this grommet is loose, I questioned whether it was always that loose or it has shrunk or relaxed somehow. Fixed by adding an oring to the groove (inspected after each two-inch downpour). Then I bought some replacement grommets from the Volvo dealer (Tasca) only to find they are of a different design. Haven't yet tried a replacement grommet to see how it fits, because the oring hack is holding water.

Naturally, I have much more documentation on this, and I'll offer it in a thread with this topic when it pops up.
