No problem. My Mom has an '01 Wagon, my brother has an '02 ZX5 and
I've got an '04 SVTF. So far none of them has had the infamous pollen
filter compartment leak problem. I was very conscious of it a couple
of years ago when I installed a pollen filter in my SVTF but so far,
so good. Admittedly living in the Phoenix, AZ area we don't see much
rain but pools of ac condensate water under parked cars is very common
this time of the year. :-)
