Default 2010 Swimming Pool GT

We had a big rain yesterday. About 2 inches. This morning when I backed into my parking space at work, I heard water sloshing. I traced it down to the drivers side door. I fiddled with the drain holes and got the water draining. It drained for about 5 minutes. There was a lot of water in there! Now I'm hoping it didn't damage the sub or electrics in the door. I'm thinking about taking it in to the dealer. I'm sure warranty won't cover it. Says right in the OM to keep door drain holes clear. I've never had a door do that though! What do you guys think?

I took all 4 of mine out.

Same thing happened to me on the passenger side door. Took them out and haven't had it happen since.

There is a TSB for the clogged drains, bringing water into the driver/passenger kick panel.

I think he is talking about the 2 little plastic drains on the bottom of each door. If it rains and they are sealed the door will fill with water.

If there is a TSB for the above issue, please let me know because this happened to me this summer.

Did having the door loaded with water cause any issues later?

It's happened to me a few times, and so far no adverse affects.

I wouldnt sorry about it. If you've ever pulled the door panel, you'll see that theres no electrics that low in the door and the sub is indeed the lowest thing, but the water would weep out somewhere else in the door very likely before it'd get high enough to cause any damage to the sub which is enclosed within the door panel itself, not the door.

That TSB had nothing to do with the doors, it was the pass kick panel,but the doors still should not fill with water, even with the long black plastic caps on the doors.

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...
