    Great information

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vicky Gillian says:

    It’s also the foam seal under the cowl intake . Remove old seal clean with alcohol to remove old material . Buy 1/2 thick or 3/4 weatherstripping foam. Stick it where old seal was. Then put some black rtv sealant on the foams other side with no adhesive. That way it sticks down and seals watertight

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ed Gaylord says:

    Why does it get the passenger floorboards wet and now here else?

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Pitt Man says:

    What if it's leaking on the drivers side?

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Keith Greer says:

    If that gasket is dry rotted, then yes you must not only clear all the debris out but replace the gasket as well, otherwise your still gonna have a leak.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars justin watch says:

    How NAPA could not sponsor a video with this magnitude of quality is beyond me. 🙄

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars El Pochoboy says:

    Look at that young stud. Decided to see where it all started

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rosie Davis says:

    Thank you so much. I have been racking my brain trying to figure out where I should take my old school car to get this problem fixed.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Antonio Brown says:

    Thanks your a blessing

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars theron hinton says:

    I have a 1990 Lincoln towncar and I have water leaking Into my passenger floorboard. Redid the gasket on the old version of the cabin intake above the heater core and windshield is fine. Why else could cause leaks there

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Fernandes - jfmax2000 says:

    You Sir are The Man… Thanx Big Dawwgg 😎👊💯

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andres Samsing says:

    You fixed my problem, I just lifted the cover and pushed the dirt from the tube. Thanks.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joseph S says:

    Thank you so much!

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dan McNeilis says:

    Thank you! This,was the exact problem I was having with my Lincoln. You helped me fix it quickly and easily. Very GRATEFUL!

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Frank Reeves says:

    I’m so glad I found this video. I thought I had a heater core leak in my 2007 town car. After watching this video I have fixed the problem, thanks!

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert h says:

    But why is it in my rear passenger Floorboard and not the front there was a big water puddle there I am confused

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dr. Craig D. Smith says:

    Weird to see Eric O without his classic Jeep hat. Loved hearing Mrs. O's high heels clicking in the garage while filming (or was that Josh), lol.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Steele says:

    Uh, I'm glad he uh, dropped the uh, habit of saying uh.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Skip Malaney says:

    I have the same problem in my 2001 town car but not the drain there is a bad gap where the two seams meet on the plastic on the windshield I silicone the gap problem finally fixed

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars stlqt09 says:

    Thank you!

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars igoski1 says:

    If you ask me, that is a very big engineering mistake. Yes, looks like an easy fix, but this problem should never be, in the first place. I was going crazy. There was no way a water leak around the two doors could be causing the leak……..so where is it coming from? I could have never figured this out without this You Tube video. Thanks for the info.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars matt ttam says:

    But below theres a foam seal that goes bad & needs resealed or its just gonna happen again when it rains. It wont be as bad free of debris, but i had to scrape off the old one & use silicone

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars kenneth smith says:

    Thank you!!!

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rugged Rick Rude says:

    Bought a 2003 last fri nite,water both front / rear pass side guy say owner left windows cracked rain got in.Couple days later went to spray carwash to vac out water.Saw the vid cleaned drain flap area out had junk in it,buddy stopped by and i used garden hose fill with water in the cowel area while freind held drain flap closed,as water rose i looked in front pass side,can see water dripping in,friend let flap go and water stopped dripping into car,next let hose water run down windshield as if was raining……..drain flap worked fine and no dripping inside.Back floor still very damp,moved front pass side seat all way to dash then used a squeegee on rear area carpet to get water in to towels to absorb…………we shall see

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Juan M. Huerta Sr. says:

    Thx for the info

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Will the Man says:

    Excellent

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sean Love says:

    I have this exact problem but it's with a 2000 Signature Series Towncar. Would you know if it's the same process to remove the cowl?

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Princess Layha says:

    Your the man !!! You help alot of people and that's great!!! Keep up the good work !!

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dennis Burgett says:

    would it be wise to put a filter in that area to filter the air going into the cabin?

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rodney Middleton says:

    That's too funny that you popped up when I googled water in the floor board. The problem is on both sides of the Lincoln I'm working on and the passenger's side was exactly what you had there but the driver's side wound up being the grommet on the hood release cable has deteriorated and the water was traveling from the cowl hitting the cable and traveling through the grommet filling the front floor board and then running in the rear floor board filling it up. Crazy to find water leaks that travel that far. Thanks partner and you look a lot less stressed back then! LOL!!!

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars rokncobra says:

    Is it the same idea for the driver side..im getting water on drivers side floor..97 TC

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeff Hitchcock says:

    I had to rewind to make sure you said “Dr O”. Good stuff.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joshua Campbell says:

    Surprised you didn't mention cleaning out the blower motor as well. When the drain is clogged the blower motor gets full of leaves and crap too.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Marlin Young says:

    Its hilarious watching your old videos and your old intros lol. You have came a long way since then.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars xadam2dudex says:

    Ah is this the ole clogged evaporator drain ? Causing condensation to overflow into the cabin ? Ahhh the clogged vent drain ..

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Davis says:

    South Main. I have a 08 Town Car and pulled off the fresh air intake box and discovered a bad OEM foam seal on the bottom of the box. Did the prep work required and used a tube of permatex ultra black RTV. That was my main issue along with the drain filled with leaves. Thanks for all your help.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! bjtucker5 says:

    Already did all that. Thought that solved it, but no. It was deeper. I believe it's the spongy, porous seal (obviously breaking down) that the channel seats against. You could even see the water trail going down, from the seal, into the mesh air intake.
    Any thoughts on that?

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jamey Barisoff says:

    Doctor O lol

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jacob Hillanbrand says:

    Thanks for the explanation. I went to buy a used town car today and I noticed it looked like the carpet was wet

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Donnie Robertson says:

    Great job again like always

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ky Storm says:

    Oh my God. A young Erick WITH OUT HIS HAT???

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Analyssa Solano says:

    My town car passenger floor ALWAYS has a wet spot, about the size of a silver dollar, regardless if it rains or I take it to the car wash. Could it still be the same problem?

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ken J says:

    Sorry didn't work at all. Tried thos and step numerous times.when it rains there is nothing on the back floor but when I drive and park its flooded. I saw another video that said there may be a hole underneath the vehicle that needs patching. That's the only option. For me right now.

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kent Beery says:

    Thank you my Mom's Lincoln has the same problem I'll see if that's it
