1996 ford bronco, leaking water on left side tail gate

When it rains the carpet is wet on the drivers side tailgate, i have ck all the adjustments the tailgate closes good and all line up as it should. I have replace the tailgate inner and outer wiper seals and end caps seals but it still leaks when it rains. I am thinking about replacing the left and right side cover seals but I am afraid that I might make new leaks. i have been told that if you take off the fiberglass cover it may never seal off again. I have not replace the side and bottom seal against the tailgate when it is close. all the old seals look ok. Please help. Thanks

I would replace all the seals between the bed and the top. also the seal at the bottom of the tailgate. that should take care of any leaks unless there is a rust hole under the carpet

Ford bronco tailgate


check Mazda tail gates as Ford and Mazda share most body parts . Normally it will be the same year as your vehicle but sometimes a year earlier or later depending on when the production run started and finished.

Buick passenger side front and rear carpets soaking wet


The two most common causes are rain water leaking in or the ac drain being clogged up. I would vote for rain water if the entire carpet area is wet.
Could be coming in around the windshield, or one of the door gaskets.

Has a water leak somewhere,causing the interior carpet to get wet & even have standing water, seemingly after every rain


If its cold during your rainy weather and you need heat to warm the interior of your car. You might want to have your cooling system pressure checked. The heater core might have developed some corrosion which will eventually lead to leaks. If you have radiator coolant in your cooling system, touch the wet carpet then rub your fingers together. There should be a film left on your fingers. Hope this helps.

Water leak on driver's side floor


It's either the driver's side door seal or the windshield leaking. Best bet is to be inside on a dry day and have someone run a garden hose over that side of the car. That will give you your answer.

I just bought a 1996 ford bronco to day and the rear window worked then i tried to open tailgate and now it wont work ? can you help.


This is a pretty common problem, Inspect the wiring in the tailgate jam area ,the wiring takes a lot of abuse ,every time the tailgate is open and closed the wiring inside the( black vinyl tube ) gets flexed back and forth and in time the wiring breaks some times if you open up the vinyl tube and inspect the wires it will appear the wires are ok but if you pull on the wire you'll find that it will actually stretch and all thats holding it together is the vinyl insulator ,also there are switches in the door latches of the rear gate that tell's if the tail gate is closed,if its not closed completely it will not allow the window to work properly hope this gets you in the right direction

Rear window on my 1987 ford bronco will not work


This has several possiblilitys, it could be the switch in the dash has gone out even if it does not work with the key in the tailgate. other possible item could be the window motor or a sensor that detects if the gate is up or down. check motor wires for power when the switch is activated by pulling off the panel on the tailgate, if it is getting power i would suggest replacing the motor. if not you may have to trace wires to the drivers side of the tail gate and find the sensor.i had to by pass mine a while ago. makes it much easier to clean the glass on the inside cause the window will roll up with the gate down.

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

How do you change the back window switch in the dash of a 1995 ford bronco?


that part of the dash panel should pull straight out,but ive never seen one go bad,if the window doesnt go up,then check the safety switch inside the drivers side latch of the tailgate,spray the latch with wd-40 and open and close a few times.if the window is up and you cant open the gate,then try tapping on the upper left corner but not too hard to dent the gate
