Hi GJ, It sounds like you bought my old car I traded earlier this year..;>}
The a/c dust was not draining and the water ran just to the same
spot in the rear footwell.
Check that and the door seal and the floor plug.
Maybe you'll get lucky!
My '94 has the same problem. I have seen the water 2" deep
in the RR after a few hours in the rain. Does not do it
every time it rains but, if it really rains, it leaks. I've
tried water, air, talc and, smoke with no help. I have also
asked the question here an a couple of occasions with no
My '95 does it but I know where the leak is. My car has a sunroof and if I
park it on a slope with the nose down, it drains onto the passanger seat,
then runs back to the floor well. I haven't worked up the nerve to pull the
header down quite yet, tho. I've just been careful to park it uphill.
Good luck and let us know if you find it.
I had the same problem on my 93 Marquis. The problem is behind the inner

My 94 tbird had the same problem. Try removing the plastic cowl panel
between the hood and windshield on the passenger side that covers the heater
plenum area. Inspect the underside for deteriated weather stripping. You
should be able to find a replacement weather stripping at a local body shop
I recently fixed the same problem in my '94`Grand Marquis, a real head
scratcher. It turned out to be a rubber gasket around a mounting stud for
the hvac blower housing. I replaced it with a bead of silicone caulk and
the leak stopped. Took me several months to locate. I had to pull the rugs
out and everything before I found it.
