Why is th carpet wet behind the driver seat in my '02 thunderbird


This can be from one of couple sources. One would be a broken or missing rubber seal in the firewall. Water can and will enter the passenger compartment if the seal is not good or missing. The firewall is the metal between the engine compartment and passenger compartment. There are many penetrations in the firewall for throttle linkage, steering column, electrical harness, etc. All of these penetrations have seals to prevent water from entering. Check to make sure all penetrations have seals. Inspect from under hood and from under the car, too.

Another source is damage to the floor pan. If you went over a rock or jagged object without having enough clearance, it may have punctured or even sliced through the floor - under the carpeting and sound deadening material under it. If you live in a cold area, and the roads are treated with salt or chemicals to melt ice, it may have caused rusting holes to appear in the floor pan. Water spraying up from tires would enter through the puncture or slice and the carpet would wick the water in. It would take a long time to dry and give a musty smell after just a short time. You should inspect the floor pan from underneath the car. Look for punctures, slices and rust / rot. Clean and seal any openings found in the floor pan and firewall.

Fixed windows and glass in the car body are also sources for leaks. The is especially true if glass has recently been replaced. Many times, the back window leaks into the trunk or metal under the rear seat - and flows to the carpeted floor. Look in the trunk at the bottom of the rear window. Side windows can leak, too - so don't forget to look behind trim interior panels on the sides of the back seat. Your leak could be coming from the windshield, too - this will be harder to locate through the dashboard - but you may find water dripping from wires, etc. Look for evidence of water / rust. Clean and reseal body / glass joints when found.

Good luck!

LEAKING WATER INTO THE TRUNK WHEN IT RAINS...WHERE IS IT COMING IN? ALL RUBBER GASKET AROUND TRUNK LID IS FINE.


has the car been in any accidents? if so, it could have a small crack in the seam sealer of the panel. Lock for any spots of sealer and see if it has a visible crack or hole. Also, if your back glass is leaking at the bottom it could find its way into your trunk. Also re-check the gaskets, the get flimsy with old age and may look fine but not be touching everywhere still. Check and see if one spot of the gaskets is dirtier then the rest. This is usually a telltale sign of water or air getting through.

Hi I have a 1981 280se w126 and it has severe rust in the lip of the boot/trunk (big holes)....is this expensive to fix/replace? Also the metal panel underneath that area on the inside of the trunk is...


Considering your car is only worth $5,000 in great shape, I don't think it is worth repairing a rusted out frame and under body. If it was a 72, I would say yes, but 81, ahh, My brother used to restore cars, I saw what he went through, buying and selling his cars, He stopped buying rust buckets, if they had one spec of rust, he didn't touch it, there are plenty of rust free cars out there, And repairing rust is a nightmare, your Mercedes is not like a Chevy where they have every panel in stock ready to weld in, You would need to hire a body man full time for a year to get those panels fixed back up, and get it done on the frame??? Forget it, the frame is probably shot. Painting the undercarriage will take most of your money, you will never get it back out of the car. Hope this helps.

Rusted wrangler frame


Rusted frame repair is a touchy situation.
Depending on what area of the frame is rusted, the saftey concern can vary.
If your a DIY preson, you can elad on some repair plates to cure some problems.
If it's in an area where a suspension part or steering component mounts, then repairs are touchy.

Water is leaking onto back seat from both sides on a v reg pug 406 , the seals seem fine and i`ve just cleaned them will see what happens but any more info on this problem will be grateful


This could be coming in from a few places. As well as checking seams, i would suggest checking your floor pans... Many times rust will slowly eat thru the floor pans, and allows water to be soaked up... Get the car up in the air ( or climb on under it). Tap on the "floor" from underneath where the rear Foot area would be. If it seems rusty or weak or you can see visable damage. this could be your culprit, even if it isn't rusted through completely. This is a very very common problem with cars in my area , as I live in northern USA. Alot of snow = alot of salt on roads = alot of rusty floor pans :)

This could also be coming from your B - Beams. When your tires displace water. it splashes them against the inside wheel well and tire guard.. Under that guard lies your car body. If this has rust in /on it that has penetrated all the way through, the water is getting thrown "into" the body panels, which is leaking through to your seats. Hope this gave you a little more information on places to look.

94 Jeep Wrangler back shelf rusting


Wire brush the area off and vacuum up any debris. You can use "rust killer" on the rusted surfaces and then use fiberglass mat to repair any holes. Overlap holes by at least 5" wherever possible. You can leave this unfinished or use spray bedliner paint to further seal the deck. i also recommend you go underneath and remove any loose rust and spray afterward with rubberized undercoating or rust will continue to form there. When using fiberglass on flat surfaces you can lay mat down dry and just pour resin on it and smooth it out so resin penetrates and you don't have lumps.

Need to stop rust & patch holes/damage


Not sure how you want to go about doing the repair or what tools or resources are at your disposal. You could rivet, braze, or weld stainless sleel, sheet metal into place. You could repair the area/s with regular sheet metal and then coat it with Rihno bed liner or something comparable to it. I've used Rihno, its great. Well let me know if that helps or gives you some other ideas.
