water leak, puddle of water in passenger side foot well

Same problem as UK_EZRA. There was always dampness on the floor and I always thought it was a bad side side mirror repair. Now I see after an unusually hard wind and rain for the first time there's a puddle on the floor and water dripping from the lower vent on the left side of the Blower Motor. Windshield Cowling is a very bad seal and it's always been a bad seal. It can't help but be a bad seal if you change the Pollen Filter every other year. I am confused. Is this a Recall? Do I use Silicone Sealer? Or do I pay an arm and a leg at Ford Repair?

Here is what I did. Copy and Paste from my build thread. They are inch bends on each side with some cut off. I would say dimensions of 13-16 would be great (inches). It can rain as hard as it wants and I can put the hose right on it and no water gets through and I have as much air coming out of the vents as I did before!

Dont tape it off as you will get no air for anything, including defrosters. Speaking from experience.

I am victorious!!! Tried another prototype for my car leak issue. So far so good. Been on for about 6 hours. A piece of 15"x15" 22 gauge sheet metal. Bent and cut and painted black. Air flow still comes through at full strength now, screw the tape idea. See how it does.

^^^ This is a good modification to get around issues of needing a good unbroken cowling installed exactly right.

Yep, just get that hole covered to deflect water but air still gets in and good forever. Basic home roofing #101, look at how the water flows and stop it..................50 ways you can do it.

Hi FFs! I'm desperately in need of finding the source of a leak. Unfortunately my pathetic lack of knowledge regarding auto parts terminology is a major hindrance to learning to do these things for myself
Where might I find the original of this article in order to view the images &, hopefully, follow these instructions?
Thanks so much!

If you're talking about pictures to go with the early post of a TSB in this thread, that was made by a member back in '07 and there aren't any working links showing.

End of the thread has working pictures that might help, you might need to view by computer as phones can't always see linked pictures.
