#6 of 14 hard to use window
Dec 02, 2007 (4:13 am)
i have had this problem before on a number of cars and i squirted oil down the guides at the edges of the doors. this helps out a lot. if your mechanical you could remove the door panel and oil up the mechanism. and the gears on the regulator.. it is not hard to do on a metro.
#7 of 14 1998 Metro hatchback drivers side floor always wet!
Feb 01, 2008 (9:39 am)
I have looked and I cannot see where the water is coming from. Has anyone had this issue before or seen a bulletin that may shed some light? The passenger side is dry as a bone. The car is parked outside and the floor gets wet just sitting there, I do not have to be driving it for the floor to get wet. I would appreciate any information anyone has.

I have the same problem w/ my 97 Geo Metro. See my question I posted today titled "Geo Metro Problems:PRNDL,directionals fuse, & water on floor". If you can't find it I'll repeat it for you & what I've sumised from reading on this site & my own experimenting. user: suz13
#9 of 14 Blower Noise
Sep 21, 2008 (4:37 pm)
I love my GEO metro... has almost 130,000 miles and still going. This is especially good with the high gas prices.
After surviving several hurricanes and tropical storms here in south central Florida, my 4-cyclinder, 4-door sedan now has a strange rumbling, hum in my inside blower. Don't know if there are leaves packed in it or what, but have killed myself under the dash to figure out where the noise is coming from. I always thought there was an internal air filter, but I'll be darned if I can find it much less get to it.
Does anyone have any good ideas?

My 1996 Metro window regulator failed at 125K. Well, it was a bar night, so I was probably more forceful than usual.
Finding parts...if you're lucky enough to find them in a junkyard like I did. This is yet another common problem with these cars (along with sagging headliners and fading dashboards).
When you DO get it fixed, be very gentle on the new regulator. I have a '98 Metro now (hatch) and the window feels the same way as my '96 did. I roll it down very slowly and make sure I use two fingers on my left hand at the top to gently guide it up and down. This has helped. Just be very gentle and minimize rollups/downs. That's all I can say.

Assuming your vehicle has air conditioning... what you are probably experiencing is a clogged moisture drain tube. This is the outlet for the water pools you see under parked vehicles after running the A/C. Since you would have to literally tear the dash out to get to the catch pan, the easiest solution is to locate the drip tube on the engine compartment firewall and blow air up the tube. This will blow the junk out that's blocking the tube. You can use the exhaust out of your vacuum and make something to reduce the hose's diameter, but the easiest way is to have your local mechanic give it a blast out of his air nozzel.

Hi my a/c was a aftermarket install.All the parts are from a geo metro.It works but it doesnt get really cold.On extreme hot days you cant feel it. I spent 1400 dollars on the repairs for this a/c system.I had this exact car with factory A/C and I would freeze my eyeballs out ! It was close to snowing in the car I miss that! Can anyone tell me why? This aftermarket A/C has feon (old stuff) in it.The fan works on all speeds however it doesnt seem as strong as It should be,can a fan motor be weak without it making noise?Any info is appreciated.This Geo I have is MINT!! I want to keep it that way.Thanks Mike

Check to make sure that the vent door under the dash is closing all the way. There is a spring that will get weak or break on that door to hold it closed. If it's gone or not working, then the door is not closing off the air flow from outside. I just bought another 99 Metro with this problem. My husband had to fix the vent door, and I am using a rubber band to keep the vent closed off on the dash. (The wind from going down the road was blowing the door open.) Doesn't look great, but it works.
