Mine no longer leaks, mine was caused by the cowl retaining grommet seals. I followed the TSB and used body seam sealer from a body shop. (much cheaper and a lot less messy than the ford recommended sealer) We had a lot of rain here last week and I checked under the carpet yesterday and it was dry as a bone.

No leaks here, but how would I know? I live in Arizona where it rains maybe 2-3 days a year.

Mine has leaked one drop that I know of. After driving through an extremely heavy downpour, I turned a corner and my wife in the passenger seat felt a drop hit her foot. She looked around and couldn't find anything wet. Floor was dry. Firewall, etc was dry.

Mine leaks.
07 V6.
Replaced the cowl clips with the new improved heat
sealing cowl clips and no change, still leaking.
Did the plug the rear air outlets in the trunk and pressurized the
cabin trick with the soapy water and found leaks around the pass side
window trim like the TSB shows. Guess I am buying the new pass side
window trim and replacing that also.
You can actually see the sealing foam working its way out from under
the plastic trim and no matter how many times I stuff it back under
with a credit card, it works its way back out. I have seen many with
this foam sealing material coming out from around the plastis window
trim on the pass side by the door mirror.

I hope everyone's first step in fixing the water leaking under the dashboard is checking the cowl drain tubes on the firewall, just below and to the right of the battery... roughly the same place for the drivers side. Little black rubber oval shaped tubes that have slits in the bottom. Just one leaf could clog it and our cowls dont have screens. This is most likely the problem. They get easily clogged and water fills up and it sloshes into the passenger compartment with heavy rain. Cleaning them takes only a few seconds. The best few seconds to fix a serious problem that can ruin your Mustang! Do yourself a favor and go check them now.

Same here. Although I have to keep my stang outside for now, I do keep a car cover on it. Even in strong storms, I haven't noticed any leaks.

They are so easy to keep clean there is no reason to remove them. I guess they divert water away from the firewall a bit. I'm going to flush my cowl every time I wash my car. Just spray the hose full force straight down into the cowl vent slits and it shold force flush any debris out. I will still check it with my finger too. A little Mustang prostate exam...

I wish they had a screen over the slits, then this problem would not exist. My yaris has a cowl screen...

I have driven my 05 through plenty of rain. Have had a few water leak issues.
Solved the first problem (water leaking from passenger side dash) by cleaning the seed pods out of drain grommets in the cowl area.

Solved the second problem (water leaking from under driver side dash onto my pant leg) by reseating the seal around the driver side window. That seal, when set properly, directs water out the hinge pillar area. When it is not seated correctly it directs water to the inside of the car.

Is it foam or rubber that keeps poking out? The seal that runs along the top of the door opening and down the hinge pillar was sticking out of the plastic trim on mine. I tucked it in and got a leak. I untucked it and the leak went away.

Check the condition of your SJB (Smart Junction Box), and the fuse box that's located to the right of the passenger's feet. Pop that access door off, pull the plastic lever and look for corrosion in the connections.

I have an 07 with 11K miles, if it is parked outside it is never under a tree, always garaged at night, never driven in winter. I drove it the last two days through pouring rain to work and back, passenger's side is dry as a bone.

I have an '07 as well with 9K miles. Unfortunately due to my garage being full, I have to park the Mustang outside. I do keep a car cover on it but I never drive it in the rain. So far (knock on wood) I have no leaks.
