I have an 03 Envoy that had the same problem. The dealer tried to tell me that it was a leaky windshield so it was resealed. When it rained the next day, the carpet was soaked again. I found a Technical Service Bulletin addressing the exact problem. It involves resealing some screws at the "A" pillar. The inside molding has to be taken out. Once I convinced them to pull out the bulletin and make the repair, everything has been fine.
I looked on Edmunds and found a TSB that should help you (it is the same # that was used for my truck):
11. STRUCTURE:BODY Bulletin Number: 030857004
Bulletin Date: JAN 2005
Vehicle: 2005 Chevrolet TrailBlazer
WET FRONT FLOOR CARPET. *TT UPDATE. *TT

Thanks! Do you have the whole TSB? I would rather try and fix it myself if it's an easy fix than waste time bringing it in to the dealer.
#16949 of 18329 Trailblazer suspension
Jul 08, 2005 (8:54 pm)
I am wondering can you modify the suspension on the t blazer man i feeling every bump i well not every bump. But not a smooth ride like when i bought it so what can i do about it. And would it be a good idea to lower it a bit i see alot of guys on the board has would it be a good idea to do it. What would be the pros / cons in doing it?.Ps there are no struts leaking or shocks. Also in my gm warranty it says shocks are not covered does that mean struts are covered thanks.

How many miles do you have? The sway bar links in the front will wear and you can feel every tap through the steering wheel and sometimes hear them, mainly driving over the small ripples or bumps. My dealer replaced mine under warranty you can give it a try or replace with the MOOG links.

I have 58000 miles and am taking it in Monday morning. What is the difference between stabilizer links and sway bar links? I thought that what I had changed in the front was the stabilizer links. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Tell me this on the tblazers ... in the rear, when you go over a bump (a real bump) which you should not do if you cannot avoid it ... it's like you can feel it. Is this normal? Or should I just lower it and replace the shocks & struts? Are the struts covered by GM warranty?

There are stabilizer links on all four corners, mine had 60K on it and they were bad for at least 20k, links are about $20 each and they make a big difference in ride quality. The Moog's are the best given that the have a grease zerk for the upper and lower swivel connections. The steering is even noticeably tighter.

Glad you had an opportunity to drive an '05 model. I drove over a half a dozen Envoys before I made a purchase. They did not all drive the same, even though brand new. There were a couple that were really poor, and drove and handled like a truck. (Pun intended) I was able to find one with the desired color and options and felt good to drive.
The shift lever for '05 can be installed on any older TB or Envoy and costs about $75.00. Inside chrome door levers also can be retrofitted easily. Rough shifting is normal with very low miles, as the computer is just learning the drive train.
Sounds like you actually sold yourself on keeping your '02. For me I found enough improvements to buy the '05. Good luck on whatever you do.
#16954 of 18329 2003 GMC Envoy XL Climate control problems
Jul 10, 2005 (6:57 am)
Hello everyone. I'm having a hard time trying to figure out my climate control system. The heat and cold works fine. It's just that I can't get anything to come out of the front vents that are on the dash. I went through all the settings and they all worked. But when you put it on the setting to blow on your face nothing comes out. The air will only come out at the bottom by your legs and the two small vents that are for defrosting the driver and passenger sides windows. It's like that for no matter which temperature you set it to. For some reason the circulation is getting blocked on coming through the vents. Even in Auto mode it will never come through the dashboard vents. The vents are all opened too...LOL....that was the first thing I checked.....if anyone has any thoughts I would appreciate it. Thanks!!!!

Sounds like a blend door problem. Is it still under warranty?
