Water Leak on Floor - 2006 Town Car

1998 Signature. 30,000 miles. My problem is similar, but with a twist. I hope someone can help. All of a sudden I heard what I thought was gas sloshing around in my gas tank tank. Never heard it before, and thought it very odd. Well, after a bit of investigation. I realized my right rear door was filled with water, and that is what I was hearing. I pulled off the door panel and stuffed towels into it, and I got all the water out. Front floor board bone dry. Rear floor board bone dry. Could this be just a variation of the same leak? Has anyone had this problem? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

There are drains at the bottom of each door which can get clogged. Find these drain slots on the underside of door toward the outside, often they are protected by a plastic piece. Water drains out of the slots on the outside of the door seal.

Good luck.

There is another avenue of water ingress in my 2006 TC. It turns out that the B-pillar has a plastic trim piece on the outside of it at about the height of the windows in the doors. It is clearly seen when the doors are open on a side. If it is not sealed down properly, it will leak water in thru the holes it uses to mount to the pillar. Pulling it off and using sealant in those holes solved my problem.

Well here is another one! Today 5-2-15. Was getting some stuff out of back seat in my 2007 (late build 7/2007) Signature Limited TC. Found the passenger side rear floorboard carpet soaked with water. Was the only area I found wet?, Front floorboards, & under dash, & both sides front was DRY AS A BONE? HOW in He**&? can the rear R/R be wet and not the front passenger floorboard? IF this is from rainwater. Has NOT RAINED in ~ 11 days here. And car has been parked for about a week. I will perform the Fresh Air Intake Re-seal Repair as depicted in UT video. Is silicone best sealant to use?

I Have seen some other threads & posts, saying the water issue can also be coming from HVAC drain, if drain is plugged up, under evaporator coil. But wouldn't that get the front floorboards wet too? By the way where do you find the evap drain?, I searched & searched ? best I could reach under the evap cover, can't locate the drain? Any and all help is much appreciated. Thanks Paul..

In a word YES! No help, Car is now salvaged, Ford Refuses to address the problem.

Lincoln Corp. laughed me ff when bringing up the water leakage issue on my 2006 T.C.
Factory defect, Time for class action be filed, anyone willing to help? This is my 2nd. one, both now salvaged titled, Be assured, I don't feel much like laughing, and highly offended when told, "nothing was going to be addressed," Blowing me off as my issue meant nothing.

I had the same problem in my 07. It turned out to be a leak in the cowl vent area. Here is a link to a you tube video that will show you how to fix. Worked for me.

This is awesome! It's been at least a few weeks since this same question has been asked for the millionth time, so I was feeling a little empty inside! God forbid they ever make this a sticky. If they did that with this question, and the air springs, and the A/C vents, you could shut this forum down.
Why do you have to be so sarcastic? If you don’t like the question why not just ignore it and allow someone with a helpful comment to reply? Every forum has “repliers” who feel compelled to rag on anyone that asks a question.

Butch, the post you are replying to is nearly 5 years old and that person hasn't been here in about 3 years. :)

I tried everything and still leaked. Look at the grommet on the firewall for the hood release. That was my solution!

Well.,dang leak slowed waaaaayyy down now that I put 2 holes in the seal on the bottom of the door. Yes I did check the hood release cable and grommet in the firewall. No dry rot or leaks around any of that. Somehow it's getting under the seal on the car itself.not the door. The door rubber seems to have been holding water/absorbing it w.t.h. ????? The bottom door drains are clear.previously checked them with compressed air and small wire probing... I'm gettin boggled and more confused...prolly have to disassemble the whole door to see if I can find any water trails. It is weird that the (door) rubber seal was holding water and now that I put holes in the bottom of the rubber door seal,it's less wet on the sill now.
I have same issue and apon running a hose under the hood around fire wall. Behind brake booster is a rectangular looking box. When i ran the water over that area water ran instead my car. Im guessing the gasket\seal is worn out

That water leak problem affected the years of 1998-2011 Lincoln Town cars and it was all because of the foam like gasket on the pass side firewall outside of the engine that would deteriorate over time. It is an easy fix as everyone has said on here with a tube of Caulk, and then your done forever.
