2004 Mercury Monterey Q&A
2004 Mercury Monterey Question: Mercury Monterey leak with water coming in.
I had water coming in the right side sliding door area every time it rained heavy and the streets had standing water. You could hear water sloshing around inside and the carpet all down that side was soaked. They finally figured it out and said they needed to reseal all the body plugs on that side. I was charged for parts. Is there a part needed for doing this? Also do you think I may have permanent damage inside the car? That side under the door looks like it may be starting to rust and the carpet down that side is brown. It took them over 2 years to finally figure this out. - mom4

I found problem on my own -- water ONLY came into rt rear door track during driving in RAIN. Took off rt rear tire and found wheel well seam sealant had not completely covered front edge of seam, so there was a pin hole that let water in ONLY during rdiving in rain storm, car washes, etc. did not affect. Hope this helps. Other than this, I've had 105k miles of trouble-free driving with the Monterey! - Visitor
I had this problem too around 37,000 miles. I took it to the dealer and found there is a small drain hole which was clogged. It only took a miniute to clear it and there was no charge. This happened once again and I cleared it myself with a piece of wire. - Visitor
