picked up a car I bought today and only the front passenger side I hear road noise in the rain, it doesn't happen when road dry nor does it happen over road humps, its the exact sound that you hear if the window is open a bit and your driving on wet roads, the tyre on the road noise, what can be causing this as annoying me :P windows was closed and door was also properly closed , can is a 2005 mondeo 1.8 petrol 56k

I get the same with my mk2.5 Focus. Think it's just a Ford-ism

I had a neb round, no evidence of mis-alignment or damaged seals

ive looked at the door that is seems to be coming from and I noticed that door isn't flush like the other side, it sticks out slightly so I am wondering if that is where I am hearing the noise from whether its a replacement door or something is there anyway of aligning door

I'm assuming you have no problem closing/locking the door?

 

If it's towards the top, could suggest that somebody has hung off the door or yanked at it for whatever reason.  In which case, a little gentle persuasion to pull it back into line may help.  (Be careful though!)

there is no problem closing or locking the door, it seems to mainly start near area door handle is upwards, not sure if been in a accident or replacement door or something, its hpi clear but doesn't mean everything does it, I wouldn't know where to start trying to get it in place :/

I locked my keys in my old Punto once (well, twice - don't ask lol) and the recovery agent basically pulled the top of the door away from the frame in the process...took a few bends back to get make it fit properly again

sounds like a replacement door. have a look at where it meets the open hinge, does it look like it could have been loosened / moved?

HI again  doors are now in line ;) but I have noticed the passenger side floor carpet is a bit damp so

i pulled the carpet up on that side a bit to have a nose, no idea what i am looking for but thought id look ;) as soon as i pulled carpet up a plug come up too so not sure if that was maybe loose or off before i pulled carpet up i am not sure, i also felt that sponge like material near front of footwell and that was wet, so i dont know where to start to find out what is happening, not sure if it would be from that drain hole in the floor, ps what the hell is that, i hope its meant to have a hole in the floor :P or whether from the front end of the car, i noticed the cowl bit if that is what it is called wasnt sealed to the windscreen on the passenger side but garage said that wont cause no problems the driver side is attached to windscreen but passenger isnt, can anyone help at all

OK so the grommet sounds to have come loose which can happen. Reattach this secure it with silicone and then just work a way to dry the car out. Dehumidifier is one option or hairdryer and patience is another.

the scuttle panel on the passenger side of the windscreen has to be removed to access the pollen filter, its common for the panel not to be sealed against the windscreen after a pollen filter replacement, if the panel is not fitted right water will leak through the pollen filter onto the passenger side carpet.

Also given that the fuseboard is in the passenger footwell... that is another reason that it needs to be fixed properly!
