Water leaking in the passenger side floor after a heavy rain.

Hello after a heavy rain i noticed that the passenger side of my 2005 ford taurus was soaked, i believe that it is coming from the cowling cover. I have looked online and several others have had the same problem, and they have replaced it with a new cowling cover and a rain hat, i have tried to find them online but i can't is this only a dealer item? Thanks Tom

Here' s trick to find water leaks into cabin area,.
Mix a quart of water with a tablespoon of Murphy's Oil Soap (won't harm finish on car) liquid, mixing gently just to mix but not foam.
Start car, and place blower fan on full setting. Close all windows and other openings to try to help increase positive air pressure inside cabin compartment
Get out of car with fan blowing (engine can be running but make sure you don't lock yourself out of car) and gently pour solution on suspected areas. If there's a leak opening, the air from cabin will cause bubbles indicated leak point.
Also raise hood and use solution on fire wall where there are seams and sealant applied. I've seen these be leaks soaking the driver's side floor mats.

If you find a leak, seal it with the best clear silicone caulk, generally about $7 a tube. Clean all areas to be sealed thoroughly of any dirt, oil, grease, or loose rusted metal.

Good Luck

if you can remove the plastic "cowl" section(s) at the base of the windshield and clear out any debris.sticks,dirt,acorns,mud,etc. THEN run a garden hose where the rain normally would run down and "flush"the drainage paths at each end by each fender. see if that fixes the problem. theres also a possibility that the windshield seal could be bad.

SOURCE: my 2005 taurus has started getting a pool of water

It could be that the windshield seal has a leak beneath the cowl. Also, pools of water on the floorboard may be coming from your heater/air conditioner condenser. Check the cabin air filter for wetness, too.
Can you see if the water is on the firewall inside the passenger compartment? You might pull the carpet clips to lower it so you can spot the source of the leak.

If these checks don't pan out, let me know. Maybe we can do more troubleshooting.

SOURCE: Air filter gets soaking wet when it rains/engine light is on

There is a technical service bulletin from a long time ago. Tell the dealer to call hotline on oasis. there is a deflector that needs to be installed. Just ask.

The driver side floor is wet under my feet thought maybe it's leak in window just on floor and only on driver side Thanks ron 2005 explorer xlt 70,000.00 miles


it might be a door/ windor seal or it could be a heating component leaking. im sure that the heater core is on the passenger side but when they begin to leak they cause a localized leak much like your description.

I have water on the floor on the passenger side of ny 98 town car and i don't know where it came from or how to prevent it from happening again


did you notice the water after a rain? or was it dry?

the weatherstripping around the door may be damaged. inspect for tears, missing sections, detatched sections, use a garden hose and spray aroun the door seal to see if there are any leaks. also spray around the window to see if that's leaking.

are you sure it's water and not engine coolant? the heater core may be leaking. it is located on the passenger side under the dash. is the coolant low?

there may be a hole in the floor

My 2005 taurus has started getting a pool of water on the passenger side floorboard after a heavy rain, any ideas on how to fix, didn't see any leaks from windshield.


Look for moisture on the glass of the windshield, as well as the passenger side door, if thebottom seal isnt making contact on the door glass water will run in threw the door

Water on floor board on passenger side of 1991 Buick Century


Engine coolant will feel oily and the windshield will fog up and the car will stink. If it is just water it could be coming from the passenger door weatherstrip at top. The ac drain tube , if stopped up will also leak water in the floorboard.
