    So since I bought this stang about 2 weeks ago the drivers side floor right in front of the seat has been damp. I took a carpet cleaner to it and sucked up some nasty looking water and its dried a little but its still damp. The firewall is dry and I dont se any water anywhere else. What do you guys think it could be?

    Thats what I was thinking but its only wet in this one spot just in front of the seat. If its the cowl wouldnt it be running down the firewall and getting that and the whole floor wet?

    Have you actually verified it isn't coming down the FW by pulling the carpet? Or at least pull the carpet back then pour water down the cowl?

    Drive through a carwash and see if you get wet.

    Yea my ac is fine. My buddy and I pulled the carpet back and felt for wet spots and we pinpointed where its leaking in. The grommet around the cable for the hood was out of its spot so Im guessing thats where it was coming in. Ill keep you guys posted, thanks guys.

    Doesn't hurt to test the windshield with some soapy water and spray it on the outside edge, then use an air compressor to blow air from the inside out along the edges. Should see bubbles on the outside if you there gaps in your windshield adhesive

    Look underneath the car and make sure you don't have a hole in the floor pan...

    It looks to be coming through one of the grommets on the firewall. The one for the hood latch was out so I put it back in and pulled the carpet over there. Its supposed to rain so if it gets wet again Ill know the problem is something else.

    It rained the other day and I checked under the carpet again and all seems to be well. Its hard to tell because I think there was some residual water which made the floorboard a little bit damp. But man was that carpet liner soaked so it probably just trickled down to the floorboard after I pulled parts of it. Plus I replaced the wiper cowl and decided to seal part of the windshield just for shits and giggles.

    Hopefully you didn't use silicone RTV.
