Does your 2005-2007 Mustang have a water leak?
 
Okay, let's find out how rampant this "leak problem" really is in the small and unscientific sample of this Forum. Does your 2005-2007 Mustang leak water into the cabin on the passenger's side when driven in the rain, so as to dampen the padding under the carpet?

(there are several "leak" threads that discuss this in detail

Dry as a bone. Checked several times after driving in heavy rain and nothing, nada.[sm=wootwoot.gif]

Leaking all the time, maybe it will be dry someday. Battle from day one.

I'm pretty sure mine does but can't have it checked out til I get it out in the spring.

I had one instance after a heavy rain thet my front passenger parking light stayed on when everything else was off. It eventually went off after a couple hours and I am sure it was water related.

Only happened one time towards the end of summer and it has been in storage ever since.

I am hoping a TSB comes out before I get it out so I can have it fixed right away and they won't have to keep it for a few days.

My 06 GT is at the dealership right now for this very problem.

I have driven and parked in torrential rains several times and no signs of any leaking. I even pulled back the carpet to take a closer look once the discussion crept up on the forum, but no sign of a leak at all.

I think there have been too many threads on this. But, just to keep everyone happy I did record my response.

Perhaps a second poll might also be in order based upon year and body style. '05 coupe, '05 vert, '06 coupe, etc. I have seen many posts on different Mustang forums describing this same condition but to date I have seen no S197 convertible owners making any complaints. I have been mulling this over and a theory is formulating. Verts. have much more body flexing due to less resistance to flex, ie. a hard top. As a vert flexes the windshield will move with the flexing as there is little or no resistance from the soft top. A coupe on the other hand would experience a lot of latteral forces between the flexing body, the "A" pillars, the fixed glass, and the fixed roof. On a vert the main area of flexing is in between the "A" and "B" pillars. On a coupe it looks like the main area of flexing moves forward to encompass the "A" pillar and the cowl area. From what I've read the majority of problems seem to occur at the lower window seal or through the cowl area.

If y'all see any holes in my logic, please feel free to add comments or suggestions.

Thanks

Might be a good idea to narrow the poll results. I have an 06 coupe and so far have no problems. Since becoming aware of this issue I have been checking periodically.

I drove mine home from the dealer, 300 miles, in pouring rain and no leak at that time.

I knew this girl at work had the same 05 as mine but with red interior and it freaking leaked too.[:@] Now she owns a Lexus.

I too have a leak-free 2006 vert. Though I don't often drive it in the rain, the car was parked outside inand driven in the late Juneeleven inch downpour that we had in the mid atlantic, and it stayed bone dry.

Probably woould have been a good idea to have some more choices for the results, but I am not a statistician so what do I know. Forgive my pedestrian attempt at data collection.

But I do know that, as of yet, the poll results are not terribly disturbing compared to problems with other american cars. On a similar poll last year,we learned that over 14 percent of Cadillac CTSVforum membershad either blown their rear differentials or had a leak in it....

From a quality perspective the manufacturers should take notice, though!

It's only been driven in the rain once, and the passenger side carpet was wet when I got home.

Waiting until spring to take it out again, thenI will take it in for the leak problem, shaker 500 skipping, and fuel tank fillup issue.
