Common fault is the scuttle panel / pollen filter.Here are some others with the same fault.

The scuttle panel on the windscreen in front of the passenger side will need to be re-sealed or replaced. It leaks onto the pollen filter which then drains into passenger footwell. The scuttle is replaced as a matter of course by some windscreen companies when replacing the screen.

Parking the car uphill makes it worse.


Yup easy fix that one. When they take the panel off to replace the pollen filter the clips break.

You will see that underneath the passenger side wiper the panel will not be sealed against the windscreen properly.

Ford have a modication for this common fault, which is a piece of adhesive foam to fill the gap

Get some new clips and do it properly

Hope this helps you.
