2004 Ford Mustang Q&A
2004 Ford Mustang Question: Wet carpet on driver's side rear floor when it rains.
The driver's side rear floor is absolutely soaked after a heavy rain! We do not feel any water around the roof liner or other carpeting, just the 'well' where a rear passenger riding on the driver's side would put their feet. One person told us to check door drain holes, and I did check two (2) longish slots (not holes) along the bottom edge of the door; both are clear. The rubber weather strip on the driver's side also appears to be good. Neither seat or seatbelts are wet either. Any advice is really appreciated! - tbasmom
It is best to look for water leaks when everything is dry. First is the door seal or door, damaged in anyway? I have seen the seat belt having damaged the door seal on many vehicles. Do the doors close flush with body? Ensure the door seal makes good and uniform contact with the door (particularly important if the vehicle has been involved in an accident. You may need to pull back carpets pull back the carpets and sit inside the car (you may need a flashlight) and get a friend with a garden hose to spray water around the door jams to determine if the water is entering the doorway. Then spray water around the windscreen moving around the circumference of the windscreen. Look around the windscreen area and look up from the floor mat area (as best you can) to determine if water is leaking in around the windscreen seal. Is there any rust around the windscreen area or body work? If you have a sun roof there is a drain tube at each corner of the roof to channel away water. A blocked drain may cause water to fall from the sunroof area Water can also come up through the floor pan as you drive through water on the road, if any rubber bung or “seam sealer” has been disturbed or is missing. - patrick mannion

Have a convertible top and I have the same issue with the floor behind driver side area getting wet after it rains. I have had a foot of water after a hard rain. I recently noticed a rubber plug that got twisted and will no longer fit into the whole on the side panel of the inside driver side door. Haven't had it replaced yet, but I think that is the issue. I was able to partially get into the hole and the carpet didn't get wet after the next rain. Don't know if that was the issue since I still have that problem, the rubber plug is still damaged. - DEEM
