Ford Mustang Convertible Taking A Leak

Q. My 1996 Ford Mustang convertible is leaking water through the windows and seals. What can I do about this problem and what do I need to buy to fix it.

Thank you...

Ford Mustang Convertible Taking A Leak

A. I would have to see the vehicle to make any kind of determination.

There is a TSB out on leaking convertible tops.

Article No.: 97-24-1
Date: 11/24/97

Leaks Water - During Heavy Rain And/Or When Going Through Car Wash - Convertible Top Vehicles Only.

FORD:
1994 to 1997 Mustang

ISSUE:
Water may leak into the passenger compartment between the roof side rails and the convertible top material on some vehicles. This may occur during heavy rains and/or when going through a car wash.

ACTION:
Install a foam water barrier between the convertible top and the topside rails to reduce the possibility of water entering the passenger compartment.

It then goes on to detail the procedure for repairing the problem. Probably your best bet is to take it to your Ford Dealer and let them perform the repair since it may involve some adjustments to the convertible top.
