Hi I need help and any advice I can get. Last Saturday I was driving my 2010 Mustang and it was raining very heavy when I felt a drop of water running thru my leg then I discovered the carpet was all wet!. I took the car to the service center Monday and today I received a call that they did water testings and they can't see any leak and the car is already dry (it took 3 days for them to start working with my car). The employee told me that they will try again tomorrow and if they don't find anything I can go and pick up my car. I want to know if any other member had this problem before and what you suggest I do. Thank You

Clean out the black rubber cowl drains (in the photos). Also clean out the cowl’s themselves, they fill up with leaves and crap fast. My passenger side cowl had a compost heap going in it when I bought the car. Also replace the cabin air filter located in the passenger side cowl.

Thank You I will take the info to the dealer tomorrow, My Mustang's mileage is less than 3K that is why I'm so confused plus Im the typical woman driving without a clue of the engine maintenance

you could do this yourself, those black rubber pieces have nothing to do with the engine. just pull them out and the gunk should come out with it. it has nothing to do with driving your car it could get clogged up being parked. if i was you i would save my money instead of giving it to the dealer.

Here is my post on the subject. I have a copy and paste copy of it so if it repeats what ohters have said thats why.

I had a nightmare with my water leak. Hope this helps
Check under the hood along the fire wall. You will see two black rubber drains spaced a couple feet apart. Put your finger in them to see if they are clogged. If they are clogged unclog them.
If that is not it next check the grommets on the passenger and driver side. They lead into the fenderwell that would be ahead of and above where you feet go. The others are where the wires enter the car in the door jamb area. Make sure both grommets are in place.
If these do not fix your problem continue.
If you take off your cowls you will see 10 grommets/mounts. You can either buy the new updated ones that need a heat gun to install or you can buy T2 Ford sealant and seal over them. Also you will see a pinch weld running the length of the cowl area. You can fill in the pinch weld with the sealer.
Last but not least is what was wrong with my car. Under the fenders near where the door, cowl and a pillar meet there is a seam that runs from the apillar to the bottom of the car. Mine was falling apart and was letting water into the car. It is a very time consuming fix as the fenders must come off. But I had this fixed and so far my car has not leaked since.

The above post is the TSB for water leaks.
I hope just your drains are clogged as that is a real easy fix. If your drains are fixed you can cut off about an inch of them which will make it easier fro large debris to flow through and not get stuck. If you pull off your cowls it would be a good time to change your cabin air filter.

I haven't heard about this being an issue on the drivers side, only the passenger side, however is the drain hole are clogged with enough water I can see it causing an issue on the drivers side.

I had water coming in on both driver and passenger side. The seams under the fenders were falling apart on both sides. At least the seam sealer was consistent in sucking on both sides.

I just cleaned out mine. I was changing my cabin air filter(just bought the car last friday, I don't think it had ever been changed since the car was new) Pulled both plugs and flushed out the cowls with water. Passenger side was clog solid,drivers about 70%.

Ok... this is a stupid question.... but how exactly do you get to the "cowels themselves"? I see 2 little latches on my 07 but that just barely lets you open it up.

Thanks
