Water Leak

15 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

Just joined the forum and hoping that someone can help with a problem i have. I have an 09 fiesta 1.25 zetec. The rear offside passenger footwell is saturated in water, rear sets also feel damp and water found in spare wheel housing compartment, the rear nearside is completely dry.

Can anyone tell me is this a common problem and can offer any advice or solutions. Any help would be much appreciated, many thanks in advance.

sounds like your seals have quite a bad leak. Check them to see if any are split

Is the headlining dry? Some people have had issues with the roof rack mounting points letting water in.

Thanks Colin, headlining is completely dry. Narrowed it down to it coming in from rear or boot on driver's side. Somewhere ??

Probably time to remove the boot carpet and jump in the back while someone hoses down the back and underside. It might help you find the spot.

Also if its a 5 door check the window is fully shut.

They can repair but it won't be free. The warranty only covers leaks for the first year (really poor).

I had a water leak a year ago. 3 inches of water in wheel well and back seat wet. 4 leaks found - 2 in roof rack trim and 2 in body work elsewhere. Headlining seemed dry but staining came through about 4 months later. Apparently sorted by Ford. Now its leaking again!
