A seal in the rack has failed, or been damaged. The rack might be able to be rekitted. Otherwise you will need to replace the rack.

Miata 1991 w soft top,my daughter bought. First hard rain water was in the trunk, in the back of interior and driver's floor board. Plus we heard the sloshing of water noise. More like waves. We used

the water may be in the rocker panels of the body ( that area that runs under the doors from mudguard to mudguard on the sides ) there will be drain plugs in the under side that will let the water out. I would be checking the rear window for leaks and the boot lid seal. Check the boot seal for security by placing a layer of Vaseline on the boot lid where the rubber will be touching and close the lid. Open the lid and see where the vaseliene has not been disturbed and that will be the leak area

Water leak boot

you have to pull the cover on the boot lid I think the screws were T25 or T30. once you lower the cover there is 2 clear tubes that are your drain tubes for the boot lid. sometimes leaves and other things get stuck in there and clog the tubes causeing this exact issue. take the tubes off and either get air to blow through them or get a object like a hanger to clean them out just watch not to puncture the tubes.
install and the cover and you should be good. hope helps

Ford ka roll top glove box

The small clips break on these Ford Ka roller glove boxes and the are only available from ford .
The old one can be taken out with a pliers.
The new part will simply slot into the small rectangulay hole and just clicks into place to fit.
Sometimes the get dislodged and stay attached to the small locking point on the lid.

Water passenger footwell

Water in the passenger foot well, or coolant? Press a paper towel to the floor and see if the water is green. If so, then you have a leaking heater core. A heater core is pretty cheap, but the labor or installing one is pretty intense.

If it's just water then do you notice this more after it rains? If so, then it could mean the drainage system for your cowl is clogged and is causing it to back up into the vehicle.

Carpet wet ford ka 57 reg

A 99% bet is that the heater coil is leaking. It is located in the dash on the firewall-passenger side.

My 2000 Ford Ka Collection passenger seat floor is soaking wet, its not leaking down from under the dash/glove compartment. no where else is damp lets alone soaking. the car is parked on a forwrd slanting...

hi, i have a 98 ka and my passenger side was soaking after raining, tried checking the drainage under the plastic of the windowscreen, couldn't find it. If you take off the radiator bottle you should see a rubber bung where the electric wire goes through, if that is a bit loose it will leak water through, go round it with sealant and this should solve the problem, worked for me!

Boot fills with water after heavy down pour on 2001 s type sport , some times engine miss fires ,,,until i dry boot out then runs fine ,,boot seal looks ok ,how do i stop water entering the boot...

I would suggest that the rubber seals on the boot surround are in fact faulty or the boot lid is very badly aligned. (Has there been an accident repair to the boot area?)

1. Check the seals again - every inch - and check for movement as some of the rubber adhesive which glues the rubbers to the body work may have broken down.

2. You should be able to replicate the problem with your garden hose. Run the hose full bore over the upper section of the boot lid and over the rear window for a few minutes. As soon as the surface water has cleared the exterior body work open the boot and you should be able to detect where the entry point is by inspecting the edges of the boot compartment and the boot lid.

One person I know popped his wife in the boot while he ran water over the boot area to find a troublesome leak point. I would not recommend doing that.
