Left the car in the parking lot at work today, in the rain. Came back and the passenger side carpet was drenched. There was a trickle of water coming in from just above where the passenger would put their feet. As well as that, there was another leak in the driver's side - not as bad, but the carpet was still wet. Few weeks ago after driving in the rain I had some puddles in the floorspace of the back seats. That was put down to some sort of plug underneath the car when I got it serviced.
Anyway, can't get to a Ford dealership for a couple of days, so wondered if anyone else has had problems like this and might know what it could be. 3 individual leaks in a month seems a lot to me.

Re: Leaks

You could always just move to sunny brisbane! no real rain here for a long while. But when it does rain, there is usually hail, so there is good reason to get your car under cover!

Seriously though, I have heard of these problems and most of the time it occurs after ford has changed the pollen filter and not sealed it properly, but I guess if there is a ford fix out there for it, it may not be associated with changing the filter and can happen any time.

Re: Leaks

Ah, sounds like that could be it.
Always good to go in there with a rough idea of the problem. :)

Yeah I remember someone having problems with it before.
