water leaking inside car rt front and rt rear on floor board
I know this problem.. It is a water leak on the right side of your cars windshield area that leads to your heater vent. I had the exact same thing. Once you have a mechanic or yourself seal the plastic rain guard (cowl) you will need to dry out the water soak carpet in your car. It is prob much worse then you know because the carpet is thick. I removed both front seats.. very easy and unplugged the electronic seats and then removed the middle console just as easy.. Pulled out the floor carpet and it was soaked underneath like a sponge... I am going to have the carpet cleaned before going back in. good luck..
sounds exactly like the problem I've been having - mechanic just discovered the bottom windshield seal was leaking allowing water to pour into the car under the dash on passenger side, soaking the carpet front and back - literally puddling on the back floorboard. Now that the seal has been replaced, water is still surfacing - unbelievabe amount of water. I've driven lincolns for the last 30 years and never have I had this problem. Seems to be common in th 2000 models.
I HAVE THE SAME PROB IN THE FRONT PASS SIDE !!!!!
I have the same prob with my 1995 lincoln mark viii. i don't know where to get this fixed....was told to go to a body shop. too expensive! Help!
remove the cowl vent (plastic piece between windshield and hood) and clean out all the pollen, leaves, dirt and debris. there are drain holes that will cause water to spill into the car if they get plugged
Thanks, I will take a look at it...lots of pine needles from the storms... Should I wipe it out/vaccum it/or use water once i open it? Thank you so much for the help!
If you have a shop vac it would be good, otherwise some gloves and a garden hose. you want to make sure you blast anything in the drain holes out.
I recently bought a 2006 lincon towncar . Had this same issue with lots of water in the front and back passenger floors i hope the it is the holes. Thanks for your help everyone!!
could also gasket on cowl is gone remove cowl scrape old gasket out replace with silicone put back together hardest part is drying the carpet good luck
One would think that Lincoln (Ford mtrs.) would know how to build cars by now. Both my 2000 & 2007 Town Cars had the exact problem. They should have a Recall to correct the problem Free of Charge.
1998 Town Car driver's floor has saturated carpet and no one seems to be able to locate the problem. Cowls have been removed and debris removed, floor plugs have been resealed and water still seeps into the floor area and is driving me insane. No problem with the passengers side which is totally dry. Water is located only in the area of the floor mat. Please help. Thank you.
I agree, the Ford Motor Company ought to know how to build cars by now. My 2007 Lincoln Town Car leaks on the passenger side as the floor mars are wet after a rain. This ought to be a recall since so many of the Lincoln's are experiencing the same proble, I just watched a video showing how to seal the cowl to prevent this from happening but one would think that Lincoln would have solved this problem long ago since I see that the model year 2000 had the very same problem as the 2007. Oh my ! It's no wonder Lexus is taking over this segment of the "Luxury" cars. Wake up Lincoln ! The Alarm clock went off over seven years ago !
