Question about 1993 Ford Crown Victoria
I own a 1993 Ford Crown Vicky and every time it rains when the car is parked, the right rear passenger floor fills up with water. We can not tell where the water is coming from--we checked along the door, the seals, the window, everywhere and everything is dry. We've even sat in the car when it's raining to see if we can find where the water is coming in at but no luck. This is driving us nuts! Can anyone help?? Any ideas at all? Thanks!
I have a 96 crown vic and had the same problem. There's a drain for the firewall that causes the leak. Water flows down the windshield to the drain and out the bottom to the car. Ford put the drain on the inside of the firewall and if a gasket fails the water will come in the car. The drain is on the front passenger side of the car. The best way to get at it is to jack up the car and remove the front passenger tire. If you pull back the plastic wheel well, you will see the drain on the firewall of the car. Its actually a very easy fix, just use some GE silicon around the gasket area. My back floor would flood out when it rained. I pulled the carpet out and the passenger seat, but you'll never find the leak from the inside of the car or under the dash, it's just to tight. I guarantee this will fix the problem.

Here are a few things you may consider trying...
One thing you can try on that good ole Vicky is to seal around the outside of the door frame with duct or wide vinyl tape.. then hose the car down pretty good to see if that stops the water from pooling in the back.. Can you reach under the passenger front seat to tell if that is damp too? The water might be running in from the front and seeping into the back.. Do you have a sunroof? You should be able to rule out the door gasketing or the window seals if you tape then up.. Can you simulate the problem with a garden hose or pressure washer? If it's a four door, you might have water tracking down the post between the windows ( if that model has a post ) .. I'm just throwing out some ideas you may try.
