B Pillar Seal

Hello,
I am new to the mustang community. I bought an 03 mustang convertible about 2 weeks ago and have a few questions.

First, I was wondering what exactly the B pillar seal was for? I have noticed that my car is missing both B pillar seals and did not think anythig of it till recently when I noticed water in the middle of my rear passanger side floor. Could this seal be the issue or is it probably something else?

Also when I took the back seat out I noticed a little water on the sides of the seats which leads me to think it is another issue but I really have no idea.

Any help or tips would be great! As I said I am new to mustang and do not know much about them

Thank you!

I had the same issue on my rear drivers side floor. It was because the drains for caught water were clogged, so water overflows.

Water comes in by the rear window and falls into there where it drains out via drain holes in the frame in front of the rear wheels. I would get some water under the back seat too because of this. What I did was pull the rear interior, seats, speaker, and also the front seats and such so I could pull up the carpet enough to clean under there and silicone any holes water was coming in through. lower the convertible, have the rear windows up, and I mixed all the chemicals I could find and sprayed it in there and let it sit. Then the drain holes I gave the coat hanger treatment but I suggest pipe cleaners. Stick a hose in that area to rinse everything out and repeat. I even attached a rag to a broomstick to wipe in there. It looks cleaner down there and after 10 rains my drivers side floor doesn't get wet anymore, but I'm going back and 100% finishing it by sticking the pressure cleaner rod in there.

When you have everything pulled out stay in the car while someone gets at the outside with a hose so you can identify where water comes in and floods.

The picture of that mustang I attached shows were water comes in and is supposed to go.

I do have one more question. I noticed the last few times I have used my top it goes down like normal but goes up extremely slow! Like I'm not sure if it's moving slow. Do you have any general idea what this could be?

Once again thanks for all the help.
I don't know that much about mustangs yet... I have only had it 2 weeks
Also I'm the only one I know with a 'vert so I don't know where to go for help haha

Convertibles are tricky. Mine does the same too. I would suggest replacing the fluid in the conv motor, when I changed mine when I got mine it was black and watery. A quick googling will find the guide for you

I added more fluid and it worked good for a day now it's the same issue. I did not take out the old fluid so now I am thinking about doing that. How did you get your fluid out? Online I can only find people filling it up.

I was told to bleed the lines by lifting the vert up and down a couple times

Yeah I did that when I added fluid but I noticed a leak today that is coming from the driver side hydraulic lift... Fluid gushes out when I lower the top so I ordered new ones

ID:	161245 do you know if you can buy the gold piece that connects the hose to the hydraulic cylinder or do you have to buy the entire hose?
