Hello there...just joined forum today so a big hello to all!

I have a 53 plate Ford Mondeo TDCI Zetec S and I must say overall its a great car. However I have just noticed the other day that when moving the rear car mat behind the passengers seat the carpet was soaking wet...? No seal damage around door or window, also the drop down from door seal to footwell is dry just the floor pan is wet...?

If anyone has any thought to this issue it would be most appreciated.

Thanks again & hello to all

BB :)

welcome to meg bruce.
i had this on the drivers side and it turned out to be the seal behind the doorcard which had a hole the size of a pinhead in the black sticky putty as to speak thats holding the black weather seal up. cut it back and reaplied some good strong sealant and job was a goodun.

I've just taken mine apart this morning, just heated the black sticky stuff with a hairdryer and it's gone back on fine.

Just have to wait for some rain now to see if it leaks again!

Thanks again :)

I have been attempting to get my door cards off for a little while. I was advised by my local Ford dealership that the sealing panel behind the door card was the source of my wet floors ! Driver's side and rear driver's side in my case!

Scary, what's water doing here in the first place?
The window seals in this car appear to be excellent - they weren't this good in my old BX, and I never had this problem! These cars are deffinately built to a budget, only built to last 100,000mls - that's from a official source.

Let me know if your hair drier worked - I'm waiting for a dry day to do mine.

Cheers

Jon

with mine it only got in when it was standing still,as in through the night. so i think that its comming down the rain channels,getting in that way.
like i said i only put some good silicone on mine and it cured it. such a small job but makes a big differance.
