Water on the floor board, Help!

Hi all, new to this site, others have not been able to help me. I am getting water on floor board on front and back of drivers side only.
I recently had my front windshield replaced, thought it was that, I called the shop that replaced the windshield and they suggested that it was common for these Mustangs to have the drain under the cowling that plugs, which makes it overflow and leak into the air flow vent? Or something like it. So, the bottom line is, I took the cowling off and noticed one hole on passenger side which has a gromment. The drivers side has two holes, neither have a gromment, is it possible this is missing and allowing it to drain in wrong place?

Lastly, I can't find this drain hole, does anyone have a picture of where it was supposed to be so I can see if it's clogged?

Thanks.

Hi robb, no it does not, I doubt it's the heater core at this point, plus it was just checked out, radiator flush etc. So..............

Other than windshield, I would think wiper cowl and down into firewall somehow. Strange-??

That is what I am thinking, and told by window shop, I just need someone to look under their cowl to see what I see, also help me find the drain hole. I don't know what I am looking for.

I'm not sure where to look for a drain plug either. How about the pedal area where those penetrations are, maybe an extra one is there or one is bigger than need be. Removing the cowl takes patience and finesse, the clips break easy.

Mine wasn't too bad, you pop off the wipers and the cowl pulled off easy.

Ate you sure it isn't your door seals. Your body style door frame goes up and meets above the roofline.

Re: Water on the floor board, Help!

Hey bud i have the same problem before but i have a 2005 v6. What i did to fix it is i check under the cowl hood and i found a plug that is behind the engine if you stick your finger in there and try to clear the plug. Because what happened in mine is clogged up with leaves and twigs and my car year i found it in my passenger side which the water is in. Maybe in your car the plug is in the driver side just look behind the engine underneath the cowl you will find a plug.. goodluck.

Re: Water on the floor board, Help!

In case anyone cares, I think I figured it out, on the firewall, where the ER brake cable goes through the grommet, the water was seeping through that and down the inside firewall to floor board, filled with some expandable foam, so far so good. Now I just have the Park issue, see my other post.......... "cant get out of park"
