I have the same problem and unfortunately, Ford service center did not solve it. But fortunately I solved it myself. The water is coming from the right side in my boot. I remove the plastic cover inside, right side of course, simply use a screw driver to remove the plastic lock, two or three of them. You will find an air vent, made of black plastic with rubber as the stopper. This is where the water comes in. Try to pour water in that side of your car to find out if we have exactly the same cause of problem. The water passes in the opening where your rear bumper and car body meets, and find it way through that air vent.

Water on right side of trunk and spare tire well in my 2006 honda civic


It is most likely the boot rubber seal there is commonly two rubbers that adjusts the boot close height see if you can turn the right hand adjuster in to make a firmer seal. Also check that the seal is not pinched and is located properly. After market rubber is not expensive if you want to try to replace the whole seal.

We have a 2004 Ford Expedition when you turn right there is a noise coming from the wheel on the driver side. At first it was like a grinding noise so we changed the inner/outer tie rods. The noise...


There are several components that could cause noise from the front when turning. The components to be concerned about are, Wheel bearings, Ball Joints, Tie rod Ends, CV joints and brake rotors.

Wheel Barrings:

Jack the car up under the control arm until the wheel is off the ground about 3 inches. Slide a pry bar under the tire and place the other hand on the top of the tire. As you lift and lower the pry bar fell for loose movement in the tire. If there is such movement you have a bad wheel bearing.

On your vehicle this is a sealed Hub.

Ball Joint:

Repeat the test above and watch the upper and lower ball joints for movement. Is there is movement replace the bad ball joint.

Tie Rod ends:

You have changed the inner and outer tie rod ends so you are probably covered there.

CV joint:

The Joint is housed in a rubber boot. If you can feel the joint inside the boot you can turn the tire forward and back and feel for play in the joint. If you are not able to feel the play you can loosen the clamp on the boot and push the boot out of the way. Then repeat the test.

Brake Rotors.

You have already changed the rotors so this is not likely the issue.

Ball joint repair and how do you do it


To perform the following procedure, the lower control arm must be removed from the vehicle. Refer to Removal And Installation for that procedure.

  1. Using a screw driver or other suitable tool, pry the seal boot off of the ball joint assembly
  2. Position receiving cup, Special Tool 6758 to support lower control arm when removing ball joint assembly. Install Remover, Special Tool 6919 on the top of the ball joint assembly.
  3. Using the arbor press, press the ball joint assembly completely out of the lower control arm.

NOTE: When installing ball joint in lower control arm, position the ball joint in control arm so notch in ball joint stud is in the direction shown. This will ease assembly of the ball joint to the steering when installing pinch bolt.

  1. By hand, position ball joint into ball joint bore of lower control arm. Be sure ball joint is not cocked in the bore of the control arm, this will cause the ball joint to bind when being pressed into control arm.

 

  1. Position control arm with installed ball joint, in an arbor press with Receiving Cup, Special Tool 6758 supporting the lower control arm. Then center Installer, Special Tool 6908-4 on the bottom of the ball joint
  2. Carefully align all pieces. Then press the ball joint into the lower control arm until it is completely seated against surface of lower control arm. The ball joint is correctly installed when there is no gap between the ball joint and the lower control arm. Do not apply excessive force against the ball joint or the lower control arm.
  3. Install a NEW seal boot by hand as far as possible on the ball joint. Installation of the seal boot is to be with the shield positioned as shown.

CAUTION: Do not use an arbor press to install the sealing boot on the ball joint. Damage to the sealing boot will occur if excessive pressure is applied to the sealing boot when it is being installed.

  1. Place Installer, Special Tool 6758 over seal boot and squarely align it with bottom edge of seal boot. Apply hand pressure to Special Tool 6758 until seal boot is pressed squarely against top surface of lower control arm.

CAUTION: A replacement ball joint is not pre-lubricated. Properly lubricate the replacement ball joint using Mopar Multi-Mile grease or an equivalent. Lubricate ball joint after seal boot is installed but prior to top of seal boot being pushed down below notch in ball joint stud. Air must vent out of the seal boot at notch when grease is pumped into ball joint, failure to do so will balloon and damage seal boot. Do not over grease the ball joint, this will prevent the seal boot from pushing down on the stud of the ball joint.

CAUTION: After the ball joint is properly greased, clip the end of the grease fleeing off below the hex. The ball joint seal boot is non-purgeable and further greasing is not required and can result in damage to the seal boot.

  1. Reinstall lower control arm on vehicle.

Steering noise when turning right


Sounds like 1 bad CV joint. Not sure which side. Look at the front axles, and if 1 or more of the boots are torn then that one is most likely the culprit. If you can grab the axles, feel for free plat. A decent shop will be able to pinpoint the bad CV joint and either grease it and replace the boot, or more likely, replace the complete axle on the bad side.

Ford puma 1998 Drivers and rear footwells filling with water.


There could be a number of places the water could be coming from does the leak start from front and work its way back?
Try the following -

. A faulty seal at the bodywork joints below the reinforcing panel may allow water entry in the area of the side trim panel and bulkhead.
Check the area for faulty sealing. If necessary, seal the bodywork joints with sealer.

start with the easiest.

Driver side floor water leak in 2007 ford edge. Looks like it's coming from the dash area. Any ideas? Tks.


Well, you are on the right path; the rubber seal around the windshield could indeed be deteriorating...what may be happening is the water is coming through the cowling and pooling up on the seal there...as the water sits, the seal deteriorates and eventually you will see water like you are now.

My recommendation to you is to take your Edge to a shop and ask them to look for a leak at the bottom seal of the windshield.

Sounds to me like the CV joint is going bad.
If the little accordian like boot is torn or cracked it will get water and **** inside and go bad quickly. If it goes bad it will crack the boot in most cases. It the car has 80,000 miles or more on it you should have a mechanic look at both CV joints on each side of the car.
If any of the CV joints are bad you should change them all because you do about the same ammount of work and you get the whole drive system done right.
The CV joint is just a universal joint for a front wheel drive. As it gets worse it will transfer the vibration to the engine and transmition which will cause more problems right away so you don't want that to happen. You should have it checked right away.
