Question passengers feet getting wet

2000 Taurus. Whenever it rains, and here in the Seattle area we see our fair share, water gets dumped onto the front passenger floor. This happened before and was fixed under warranty by the dealer. Obviously a temporary fix. What can we do to fix this problem? My husband put duct tape along the outside of the window and that has kept the problem at bay, but it is not a permanent solution. Not to mention that it looks bad. Also the heater blower doesn't seem to be working all that great. My husband replaced a fuse under the drivers side and now it blows only on high. Under the hood there are some fuses...one for upper blower, one for lower. Could one of those fuses be the problem?

Re: passengers feet getting wet

For the blower motor problem it might be the blower motor resistor.

Re: passengers feet getting wet

If im not mistaken, if the air conditioner drain is clogged this will cause overflow into the floorboard. Im not 100% sure on newer vehicles but on older ones rain will enter into the air inlet (on the passenger side between windshield and hood) and will drain out the A/C drain which was not a problem. If you taped up the air inlet, that would stop the rain comming in but would also stop the incomming airflow to the blower motor which would make the blower motor slave to try and move the air and would probably make it overheat and pop a fuse or burn up the motor its self. Im guessing that if you find that drain and clean it out your problems will be solved.

Im curious, did you have condensation (water) running in your floor durring the summer months? If so the drain is your problem for sure

Re: passengers feet getting wet

I already posted this.................

The wiper cowl on the passenger side gets warped and water gets into the blower motor and resistor.

Replace the cowl (Ford recently updated part) and replace the resistor. The motor will also fail on you, so replace it also.
