SOURCE: Wet Headliner

You likely have a water leak around the 3rd brake light mounted on the top rear of the cab. I had this same issue on my 96 Ranger Supercab and found that the foam seal had gone bad and was allowing water to leak into the back of the headliner around the light fixture. It ended up soaking the headliner from one side to the other as the headliner acts as a 'wick'. You can repair this issue by either replacing the sealant around the 3rd brake light or replacing the brake light. There are two screws which secure the 3rd brake light assembly to the back of the cab. Remove these and it will pop right out. I upgraded mine to an LED light when I replaced it. That solved two issues at once as I'll never need to change a bulb there again. If you want to be cheaper you can not replace the light and just seal it with rubber silicone sealer.

SOURCE: evaporator drain problem after a heavy rain...

it is located on the right side of the vehicle very close to the firewall, it is easiest to look under the truck or underhood of the truck lower right side of firewall for a rubber tube about 1-2 inches long, find the tube and squeeze it, dirt wasps like to build nests in there, if crud runs out it should run water when a/c is on, if it is dripping with a/c on it may not be clogged, but look anyway

There is water leaking inside above my passenger side door when it rains pretty hard?


is the water leak allowing the water to wick up into the headliner or is the headliner getting wet without water coming past the weather stripping around the door?

If it is wicking then fix the weather stripping.
If the water is getting headliner wet with out passing the weather stripping then you have a leaking sun roof.

You can the door seal by sitting in the car while you have some spray water (garden hose) gentle at the frontal and upper door seal.
If not leak there inspect seal of sun roof and real seal with correct type of sealant.

Pull the blower motor and see if it is wet. If it is than there is a problem with the cowl drain or there is possible a water diverter missing under the cowl on the passenger side. If the blower motor is dry than check the EVAP drain to make sure it is not plugged. The drain will extend through the firewall on the passenger side and will have a rubber 90 elbow on the end of it. You can carefully stick a peice of wire into the opening and see if you can snake out any debris. If a lot of water suddenly come out of the drain you just solved the problem. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Why does water get into the passenger side floorboard of my 2004 ford taurus when it rains hard? it only gets wet during severe downpours


There is a leak from your cowl area.There is a technical service bulletin to install a plastic extension onto the cowl cover so water will not leak in side. It will also damage your blower motor if you don't get it reapred.

Water leaking in blower motor


pull the plastic grate cover off the cowl at heater AC outside air intake at the base of the windshield and check to see that the cowl drains are not plugged with leafs or other debris, this is the common cause, if the drains are clear seal around the cowl air intake with automotive silicone caulking.

03 impala passenge has FLOOR were it come from


pop the hood and take out the plastic shroud on the passenger side at the firewall. there is a rubber weather stripping that will direct the rain water off the wind shield other wise the rain will fall directly onto the top of the fan motor then run down onto the carpet. i noticed mine when the fan motor iced up and was about an inch thick of ice. all i did was RTV on the weather stripping to redirect the water good luck.

Interior Carpet Getting Wet


It sounds like a plugged drain line from the air conditioner. Most cars now run in the a/c mode whenever u turn on the climate control (even when heat is on). The passenger side front is where it would be wet, and the carpet and carpet pad act like a sponge and will soak up the water. Let me know how u make out.

Erratic control panel


This is the solution if your car sometimes has unexplained water on the passengers side floor after it rains and the Blower is working erratic.The solution lies under the large black bezel/cover below your windshield wipers. Under this bezel on the passengers side is a piece of weather stripping that has fallen off. You will see it right away. If you fix this and replace your blower motor and resistor your HVAC will work correctly again. I spent a year trying to figure this out.

Just remove the bezel and check the weather strip. You will be able to see where it was by the discoloration. It falls off by poor design and allows water to seep into your blower motor shorting out the resistor and if left unchecked will smoke the blower motor also. You want to add some silicon sealant and replace the weather strip to it's original position.
As far as the blower motor and resistor it is not all that difficult to replace. You will have to lie on your back on the passengers side to get at it. It's very uncomfortable.

Good Luck !!!
