someone had a leak from the door mirror housing that let water into the footwells. have a searhc on here for it.

Andy, I would get the hosepipe out and drench the car to see if there are any more leaks.

My car was repaired back in 2010 by main dealer.... every couple of months I check by the VIN view cut out in the carpet by drivers side.

after this heavy rain recently I decided to check, and yup its leaking again. Car now completely out of warranty as its a 2008 model.


Attached are the photos of the wet underlay and the 'repair' the dealership did in 2010 (eek) No evidence of leaking from here though.

Not best pleased today!

Any ideas?

Hello.
I have the same problem with my car (Focus 12.2008 manufactured). Mine is a left hand drive, so I have water leaking on right side passenger side, only when parked uphill. So far i sealed with silicone the air intake from the vent motor, and a little rubber hose entrance under the right side of the windscreen but with no luck. I noticed that the water is coming from a small plastic bolt and a steel reinforcement bar underneath the glove box. Didn't have time to investigate more but I am determined to sort this out before it gets really rainy.

there is 3 places each side it can come from if you look through the gap between the door and the wing with the door closed theres 3 rubber grommets along near the doors hinges 1 near the top hinge 1 centre and 1 slightly lower down these can and do leak however getting to them is not easy as theres just not enough of a gap the rain naturally runs between this point and saturates the rubber grommet allowing water in

as for the rain in the glove box remove the scuttle panel and in th ecorners below the windscreen check the seam sealer if in doubt get marine grade silicone from ebay and go over the seams

I've joined the water ingress club, but has been fixed on third attempt! My garage had no previous experience of this bulkhead seal problem. Ford's don't want to know, did anybody get a response from Watchdog?

Hello dear friends,

 

I am glad to say that my issue with water leaking, was solved. During other checks om my car, I noticed that there was a big crack in the sealant in the RH side below the windscreen. I used normal universal silicone sealant, plenty of it, and it looks like there is no water leaking on the passenger side (LHD car).

This cracked factory seal looks to be located at the top of the right wing. For those in the UK, (RHD) you would have the windshield wipers mechanism there, so it is little access, but worth to check using a flash light. I missed this defect because the sealant was dirty and in a bad angle. Hope this helps.
