My car is leakig water everytime it rains, the water is coming from the top of the panel that goes up along the windshield on both sides.... I just got a new windshield so I know it's not that... any suggestions? I looked for a drain in the sunroof but I'm not sure where to find it, please help, thanks!

    hELLO , MORE THAN LIKELY THE SEAL THAT HOLDS THE CABIN AIR FILTER IS LEAKING , I BELIEVE FORD HAS A REDISIGNED FILTER FOR THIS CAR TO ADRESS THAT PROBLEM,, I BELIEVE THE CABIN AIR FILTER IS LOCATED ON THE PASSENGER SIDE , UNDER NEATH THE COWL ,, WHERE THE WIPER ARM IS

    Hi, thanks for the answer.. Can you please tell me what a cowl is and if it's under the hood? The leak is coming from the top of the panel not down by the dashboard, could it still be the air filter?

    YES IT IS PROBABLY THE FILTER,, THE COWL IS ACTUALLY LOCATED UNDERNEATH THE WIPER ARMS , AND UNDER THE HOOD . YOU MAY HAVE TO REMOVE THE COWL TO INSPECT IT PROPERLY ,
