That will have been the cause. i had the same, on the passenger footwell, and was caused by a tiny bit of mastic sealant missing, on the bulkhead seal. My only issue was the ford dealer took 3weeks to even consider removing the dash to check this......

Summary

NOTE: For waterleaks from the upper windshield area on S-MAX/Galaxy 2006.5 with heated windshield refer to TSB 10/2007.

Should a customer express concern about waterleaks from the upper windshield area, one probable cause is insufficient application of windshield adhesive during production.

To rectify this concern, windshield adhesive should be applied into the gap at the windshield. It is NOT required to install a new windshield.

To enable a smooth adhesive application the grey flat nozzle needs to be reworked.

Yes,same problem here on 2009 1.6 tdci.

drivers side front and back.

Water was entering here due to clear adhesive tape covering holes not having been aligned correctly during manufacture.

see photo.

the rainwater was entering the cavity here,directly underneath the drain hole for the cabin air intake for the heater.

photo.

Body putty used to fill hole.

It took a lot of effort to dry the underfelt and it has remained dry now for 2 weeks.

Hope this helps others to solve their problems.




Also the wet interior will cause lots of electrical problems eventually.

Water and electricity do not mix.

I had this problem with my focus.. turns out the front window was not properly sealed. got a new window replaced and proper sealing on the window. this cured the problem. so its the front window sealing you need to replace.

Iv'e had this water coming into the driver's side front for some time now,it's been back to the garage 3 times now and still it leaks!!!carpets are soaked through,it's 2008 zetec 1.8 tdci estate,i can't seem to see where the heck it's getting in from,nor can the garage!!anyone with any tips please,thanks.



I just had a similar problem on my 58 plate Fiesta Style. I was told by the garage, a ford main dealer, that it was a known manufacturing fault and that the water was coming down the A Post due to a lack of sealant on the welding. They knew straight away and have stripped out my car and had it drying out for over a week. I also took out a extended warranty but was told that water leaks arent covered by the warranty after the first year !! My leak was appearing in the back passenger footwell behind the drivers seat and there were no visible signs of it coming in. I am off to collect my car today so await the next downpour to see if it happens again. Mine might be a totally different problem as you dont say if it only happens at certain times, ie, when it rains but thought it was worth a mention. Hope it helps.
