Leaking into Cab.

I have a 2004 Ranger Edge Regular cab.
I have a leak coming in on the passanger side and seems to be coming from the botton along the railing or just above. IT ONLY LEAKS IN THE WINTER
Last spring I parked my Ranger under a water sprinkler for 3 hours and no leak and no leaks all summer.
Now just sitting in the driveway with light rain I get water on the passengers side on the rubber mat. I have looked and looked and at a loss. It is not any antifreeze coming from the heater.
Any ideas or suggestions.

Thank you.

Re: Leaking into Cab.

Question
what's causing a wet carpet on the passenger side of a 2003 ford ranger? Door seals are intact and appear undamaged.

Answer
Things that can leak on a 2003 ford ranger:

1) Air intake tower inside sheet metal cowl section. Water could either be entering the tower or around the tower seal. This would be behind the glove box area. If water is entering the tower it is possible that the cowl drain flaps are blocked or stuck shut. These flaps are under the inside front wheel well covers and allow the plenum chamber to drain itself of rain water. You would have to remove the front wheel wells to see the flaps. This repair you could do yourself. If water is entering the air intake tower seal it must be resealed to repair. This repair would require a trained technician.
2) Sealer split or sealer missing due to age at high cowl to lower 'a' post seam. This seam is under the area where your fender and cowl screen meet. The fender would have to be removed in order to access the seam. This repair would require a trained technician.
3) Split in upper 'A' post or roof panel seam.
4) Blocked e-vap case drain.
5) Inner door splash shield could be loose or missing.
6) High stop 3rd brake light gasket.
7) Front or rear window set.

I assume you do not have rust through or body damage as this would change the attempted repair diagnosis.

Yes, you can post a picture. The problem with water leaks is that it can leak in one place and show up a long ways away from the source. I've fought quite a few on various vehicles.

Re: Leaking into Cab.

OK pulled up the rubber mat on the passengers side and it is soaked, now letting it dry, will take some time. But what I also did was pour 24oz of water into the little holes in front of the windshield and all the water came out the left wheel well. should any come out the right wheel well??

Thanks
Brian

Re: Leaking into Cab.

Is the hose drain on the inside of the firewall or the engine compartment. Also below the heater hoses going into the firewall about 1 foot below it looks like a drain hose with a drain is that the one you are talking about???

Thank you again

Re: Leaking into Cab.

OK got the whole inside wheel well plastic cover out and I see no drain hose. Is there one on the right side of the 2004 ranger edge???

Also the Inner door splash shield was out of place, but I never get water in the cab until winter, strange

Thanks

Re: Leaking into Cab.

I'm not familiar with the Ranger bodies in that area but if it didn't leak when you ran water on it in the summer, it wouldn't be that drain area. Maybe it's picking up water from the tires and throwing it up into an opening in that area.
