Question about 1997 Ford Crown Victoria

1 Answer

Drive side soaked floor boards.

Every time after it rains i will have a hug wet spot only on the drivers side on the floor. I have drove the vehicle when it has been raining and no leak shows. This only happens if the car is parked while it is raining. We have felt around inside and can not find any leak please help.

Could be a plugged drain for the windshield or cowl vents, or the door gasket.
You could try using a garden hose or take it to a body shop.

If you have a wet seat then it is likely defective weather stripping around the window.

Try this. If the floor is dry, then it rains and the floor remains dry, only gets wet after a drive in the rain or on wet streets, you may have a hole somewhere.

Check for holes from missing rubber grommets or holes in the floorboard or firewall from rust. Check for any rust holes or missing rubber grommets under the car or on the firewall, anywhere water can splash up into the vehicle from driving in rain or running through puddles..

Check wet spots along the carpeting all the way up under the dash, if the wet spot is higher than the floor itself, you could be getting the water from splashing through puddles.

Any holes under the car or in the fenderwell even up on the firewall can cause this problem.

First check for any obvious signs of rust, if none are found then look for missing or defective rubber grommets.

SOURCE: major water leak when it rains, water runs down driver side floor

Keep looking by covering area at hood etc and running water on the vehicle to locate where it is coming in---Windshield?

This is the best way if you cannot trace the stains from water to source.

You may have a bad door seal strip. Check the rubber seal that goes around the door frame on the body and make sure it's first in place correctly, and secondly not torn, ripped or damaged. also make sure your window seals are good too. Good Luck

SOURCE: Hi I have the same issue with my a 2002 explorer

There are drains for the sunroof that are located in the coners of the roof, these plug up and the water drains into car, you will need to remove the cover were the seatbelt is and see if the hose that connects to the drain fell off or if drain is plugged, open the roof all the way back and using a bottle filled with water , pour over the drains one at a time and see if it drains if not you will need to use a coat hanger and unplug them but i would still check for the hose off on the side that leaks water. good day.

Driver Side Leaking


I had a problem like this before. Carpet was soaked after the winter. There is a few spots to check out here. Your window seals could be dried out and allowing water to creep past them. You may have a rubber grommet missing from your fire wall or under the vehicle. Mine was a rubber plug right under the feet area of the floor board and was missing. If your car is relatively new, I would make sure your car door and window seals completely when it is closed. Check it out next time at the car wash. If everything is dry, hose it down real good so it will cause the leak to appear. Follow the leak to the source or where it begins to get wet first. That will reveal your problem.

Wet floor board when it rains.


The sloshing water could be water in your doors. Old Range Rovers used to trap water when the drains became plugged - it could be that the water is building up there and coming out of the door speaker grilles. Is the car fitted with a sunroof? Pinched or restricted sunroof drains can also lead to this kind of problem.

Wet rear floor


Have you by any chance jacked up the passenger side, or got vehicle on a hoist to make sure there isn't any plugs on the underside that may have fell out? They could be round or oval metal or rubber plugs, probably in that area.
