Water-logged 06GT

The rain has stopped, but I am still hearing water sloushing around in the Stang! While driving, over my left shoulder I can hear water inside a compartment. I thought there was supposed to be a way for the water to drain away on these convertible tops? Can some give me a solution for this water problem?

In my 01 it gathers behind my back seat. Crawl back there and look where the convertible top folds down when you put it down. It may be there

I think you need to look in the trunk.

There is also two drains for the cowl. They are located down low on the firewall, just stick your fingers in there and pull the crap out. They will dump water into the car if clogged.

I checked the cabin filter and there is no water there. The water sound I hear is coming from behind me over my left shoulder as I sit behind the steering wheel.

Thank you, I checked the drains for the cowl as well, and there was no accumulation of water.

I have looked and so far I have not found the water. I know it is there, but have not been able to find where the water is collecting. Is there a compartment where the water collects to drain from the convertible top around the left rear roof post? I know it is really not a roof post on a convertible.

I imagine the water would drain out at the rear of the side skirts. You might want to remove it and see if it has anything like that.

you might check in your cowl under where the wipers are. I found my passenger side floor board pretty wet and my driver side floor board just a little wet. I got tired of messing with it tho so I just put my mats down back over them. supposedly the area under the cowl has a drain that gets clogged pretty easily. I couldn't find where mine was leaking from cause it was not clogged and I got tired of messing with it so I just quit.

I had the same problem this past spring - had to take it to dealer and $350 later, problem solved. The water is in your rear quarter panel. They had to remove the rear seat, plastic covers right below the quarter window and the lower side skirt/spoiler panel. Even then, they still had a a tough time getting the water out. They brought me out to show me where the water was and there was no way I could have gotten to it and removed at home. Good luck
