Haven't you ever washed the car and then kept the doors open to allow the water to drain? I, too, have pulled the plastic inserts in both Stangs. And it's also a good thing to check the 2 rubber boots inside the engine compartment along the firewall that allow the cowl water to drain. Those are prone to clogging and will send a wave of water into the cabin thru the cabin air filter.

Owning a car is one thing but maintaining it is a totally different ball game. As with all the other expenses of daily life, the costs of car repair are increasingly getting higher. The only feasible way of keeping tabs on car maintenance expenses is by being able to do the repair tasks yourself.This is our most maintenance-friendly pool with long-lasting durability.So,what do you say about it buddy??????????

My 2013 gets the water in the doors too. I don't think its just related to the 10s and under. Have not had issues since I pulled out the little plastic clips. Well besides water still getting in there which will cause it to rust out at some point.

There are two plugs at the bottom of each door; they look like this:

Thanks Edmin... good to know and I've always wondered what those were.

I pulled those door plugs years ago. Too many internet horror stories. Lose em, they do nothing good.

Sure am glad I read this thread. I just pulled the plugs from my '09 after reading it. Hard to believe what Ford was thinking with those plugs...
