I just had my 04 wagon in for this last week. I got them to cover it under warranty even though it was a few months out. The floor on mine was really soaked! The blower was still working but they gave me a new one anyway, installed a 14 inch weatherstrip along the cowl and put a 1 inch bead of silicone along the left edge. The silicone job on yours looks a lot different then what the dealership did on mine.

Fishx...

Can you take a picture of how they applied the silicone?

I think I narrowed it down today.
I drove the car today (temp around 85) with no rain lately.
There was no water on the passenger side floor ( I have the carpet pulled up).
I noticed that after the air was on, I had a little puddle of water on the floorboard.

I traced the water flow to the area shown some posts ago where the tubing/foam go in the firewall.

Nidan has me thinking that the drain/firewall situation is correct.

I hope to check it out over the next few days.

Nick, here are the posts and earlier pictures about the passenger floor leak.

Look for the picture with the large red arrow.

Look at the last picture (red arrow) in the first post.
That's what Nidan is referring to. It shows where the ac drain comes out of the firewall.

If you don't have a leak from the cowl area by the passenger compartment cabin filter, silicon around that ac drain.
That solved the water leak problem on my car.
In fact, to play it safe, I siliconed around all 4 of my Tauri drains and also did my parents 00 bull.

Ok...

My 07 SEL has been to Ford dealer two times now. I think my taurus had two separate leaks. They fixed the issue where the water was coming through along the a/c drain tube. Anothewords, the "ramp" where your feet rest remains dry.

But...we just dumped on by three days worth of constant rain and the carpet is very wet again. I noticed though that the water comes from a "weep" hole at the bottom of the blower motor housing and drips down soaking the carpet. Again, the ramp area is bone dry.

Any tips or help would be appreciated!

Update: Like some have already said, make sure to seal around the AC drain tube. Dealer did a crappy job on mine and made it worse! Just got around to doing it right thanks to you guys. I built a little volcano around that drain tube with "Dumb-Dumb"( It's that black windshield putty stuff from 3M). Only way I could reach it was by taking the wheel and liner off. Very easy job and no more leak! A big thanks to everyone who posted about this fix!

I put the car up on the temp jack and took wheel off to see what I gota do to repair the leak. Is that drain I see sticking out of the firewall the one that needs the silicone around it?

Once I have the car up on jackstands....is it even possible to get at?

Hello,

Is the picture attached to the last post what we should use silicone to seal around? Thanks.
