I created this poll to see what model year 2005-2007 Mustangs have the dreaded passenger side leak.

Had and repaired. Just a word of advice. Keep your eye out for gremlin quirks. ie.; one tail light lit up while car is off. Headlights not turning off. Traction control turning off while driving. Dash lights turning off while driving. The leak will cause complete electrical failure in the end. If you ezperience one of these quirks you probably should head to your dealer right away. What is happening is moisture has made it to your smart junction box. You can see the access panel on the passenger side. With any electrical component not designed for the elements will corrode from moisture causing the connecting wires to have poor conductivity. Eventually they will corode so much that there will be no conductivity.
I have to say the dealer came through no problem and replaced my all of the wiring harnesses and the smart junction box when this happened to me back in 05, although I heard a lot of people had problems with their dealer because they weren't smart enough to figure it out. But just wanted to throw indicators out there for people who haven't want to read the gihugeous posts on this.
I have the leak. The dealerhas had one attemp at fixing it. Still leaks, but not anywhere near the SJB. Got to take it back for attemp #2 and to fix the Passenger side seatback release which is now broken.
So there is a problem!?!!?! GD!!!! I drove in some pretty hard rain about 3 months ago and the next day i was vaccuming out the inside when i noticed the floorboard was SOAKED!! I was like WTF????? Is there anything i can do to fix it myself instead of dealing with the F TARDS at Ford?
