These are the two holes in the moulding/door seal that I filled. This fixed the issue with water leaking into the car. I used basic clear silicone sealant. I'm sure you can use any color. Cheap two dollar fix for a potentially huge problem.

It seems to me that the places you sealed are drainage channels. If they are plugged up the water will still get in the car. [sm=dontgetit.gif]

and that silicone will attract dirt like a pig
and stand out like a sore thumb when sold [:@]

I'm with you on this Beavis.

F*CK. I have this problem. I've been avoiding buying this car for 3 years just to see if ford would fix this F*CKing problem. I just bought my car 2 weeks ago and the first rain storm brought this. Low and behold, my hand was wet when i put my hand on the carpet. Has there been an official TSB?

Thanks

I really think this should be a sticky!

I know it looks glorious and so awsome as a sticky but this is something a lot of us unfortunate Stang owners are dealing with that could affect resale value, everyday use and even safety!

Here's the TSB document i grabbed from the other thread:

I meant this thread in particular but the other one works, i guess. Question, has anyone had a definitive fix? Preferably from the factory?

I just bought a new 08 mustang. Its in my garage and not exposed to any rain yet. When we expect some rain I am going to park it outside and see if I have this problem. This really ticks me off. This leaking problem has been around for years but FORD still has not fixed it. It also ticks me off BAD when I read of people who called FORD or their dealership and they say they haven't heard of it. If I have this problem I'll be at the dealship immediately and for as long as it takes! If I had read this before I bought my mustang(04/25/08) it may have changed my decision!

Second time into the dealership...today. 840 miles only and it went in after about 500 miles. I hope this time takes care of it. []

Hey Everyone,

I am so glad I started this thread such a long time ago. I went through hell trying to fix my 05 Ford. The tech said it was coming in through the windows. He fixed it. Now about almost a year later guess what???? I had the pouring effect after some strong rains I took a left turn... YAY I finally was able to visit that wonderfull waterfall I always wanted to... Except it was in my car. Under the dash water POURED out... I am so sick of this. My carpet was already replaced once, the issue was already fixed once. The dealership is horrible (already messing up the first repair. the water leak guy left tar all over the seals of my window, looked like black toothpaste leaking out). I made them fix that, much to there dismay. Had to get into shouting matches with them. Well now the car isnt under warranty and will cost to fix it... I am honestly... So upset.. Im not sure what to do. FORD Corp. is also no help....Car only has 15,000 miles on it.
