Question about 2001 Ford Focus

1 Answer

My Ford Focus leaks water on the passenger side when it rains. Ford has tried to fix this problem two times, and each time the leaking started again. I don't think Ford can fix this problem. I paid for this maintenance, and the problem still exists.

If you paid and the work was supposedly done but the problem persists, then you need to get the car to the dealer who worked on it and demand that you either get the leak fixed, or you get your money back you paid for work that was not up to standards. No way should you allow them to tell you they fixed it and now it is your problem. They took your money for a job they said was complete, but it wasn't. If they refuse to honor their work then you would have a legal case against them in a court of law. If they won't work with you , tell them you will get it fixed by an auto body shop or any other mechanic you chose and will bill them for the repair. Also be prepared to tell them you will seek relief in court by an attorney, but if you tell them this be prepared to back it up by going through with the attorney. Once they see your committed to this they may have a change of heart and agree to remedy your situation. You can also contact ford themselves and let them know what your up against.

I have a Ford Taurus 2001. For about 5-6 years, it leaks when it rains on the passenger side. It only leaks sometimes. Sometimes it is a lot of water, sometimes a little, and sometimes it is none at...


water leaks are a bit.. to locate.possibly the easiest answer is for you to get a hosepipe and ask a friend to hold it while you climb inside and try to locate where the water is coming out then trace it back.may take a few minutes,could take hours,the hose should be pointed at each seam/joint one at a time until leak found.

Water leaking inside 2001 ford focus passenger side floor


The ford focus and Taurus models from this period are notorious for water leakage. Unfortunately it can be from two possible causes. Lets start with easiest first. The water dam (black plastic) where the windshied meets the hood (on outside) sometimes pulls away from glass allowing water to run into the crack and then into the dash and into primarily passenger side. The fix for this is listed in a TSB by Ford and the dealer can install, for a price ofcourse, a replacement damn that helps. For my sons Taurus to diagnose if this was the true problem we put a piece of clear packing tape over the place where the dam meets the windshield making sure it was sealed to glass tightly and then waited for next rain and it was dry so that fixed it. SECOND possible cause is a bad heater core. If the wetness smells sweet like radiator fluid or sugary sweet then this is probably a coroded heater core that leaks radiator fluid into the passenger compartment. It is located in center of dash closest to passenger side. Unfortunately if this is the case it needs to be replaced and a radiator shop will charge anywhere between 250 to 500 to do the job with part included. If it is the HEATER core you should check your coolant level regularly because it operates on pressure and with a leakign heater core you can lose pressure and possible have engine overheating. Good luck

Leaking inside the car everytime it rains


There is probably a drainage hole underneath the cowling under your windshield wipers. They're supposed to allow the water to drain out into the wheel well. See if the passengers side is plugged up. Collected water has to go somewhere and it will always find a place.

Leak inside car


the water drain for the ac system is clogged.
the inside coil gets cold and water drips off of it and needs to drain to the outside.
there should be a drain spout on the outside of the fire wall.
this small drain needs to be cleared.
let me know if this helps
thank you

Water leaking into passenger footwell .. focus 04.


Is it warm green or yellow water, antifreeze, as in a leaking heater core? Or is it cool dirty water as in rain water? If it is antifreeze you have a bad heater core, or a hose going to it needs tightening. If it is just water coming in during and after a rain you have a leak around your windshield or your fresh air inlet for your heater or drain for your A/C is leaking or collecting water. Often times the A/C drain has become plugged with **** and you can clean it out. Go to a ford dealer maintenance guy and ask them where the drain for the A/C is. Then check your drain opening.

My ford focus st170 is leak foamed water under the carpets passengers sides only and boot passenger side only


air conditioner/heater compressor's or evap canister is leaking on the floor. It is very common with the focus. After time that water begins to stink! Try silicone to seal the leaky component which would be above the floor mat.

2001, rain water comes onto the passenger side floor. I removed the cabin air cover and reinstalled, siliconing the edge to the windshield. It still leaks. Whats wrong?


Are you sure it's rain water and not coolant? Coolant would have a distinct smell.

Does the car have a sunroof? The drainage tubes on sunroofs can get stopped up and allow water to enter the car.

2000 Grand Cherokee Dashboard leak


Maybe. If you have a fixed antenna on that side of the vehicle, the large rubber gromet on the wire leading into the passenger compartment may have come out, allowing lots of rain water to enter the vehicle. Happened on my 94 and flooded the passenger side.
