I recently purchased a 2002 Lincoln Town Car. I placed clear vinyl floormats down and moisture forms under the floormat on the driver's side. I would probably have never noticed if it hadn't been a clear floor mat. I have cleaned the wiper areas and still am getting the problem. We have not had rain. I'm stumped. Can anyone help?

It could be coming through the firewall on the hood release cable. On the 03 and later models the drain on the drivers side cowling drops straight onto the hood release cable, and after enough time the rubber gasket at the firewall drys out and cracks. I think it’s the same situation on the 98-02 models, but could be wrong
