  1. I had the same issue with my 2014 convertible. I followed your instructions and the water started draining. I'd love to know what that foam is doing in there.

  2. I used marshmallow skewers held together by rubber bands. Seemed more effective to go between the two windows, but don't fuck up cus you don't want to mess with the windows.

    Great video.

  3. You saved my mom a trip to the Ford Dealer. Thanks for this video, I tried it out and it worked like a charm! Also did the door drain plug thing too which is another common issue apparently

  4. Will this work for a 2003 ?
    And do you do this procedure on both sides or is there just one side?

  5. Hmm. I did exactly what you did up to looking down there. I don’t see any water or any foam piece but I can hear the water and my car smells like nasty water. Any suggestions?

  6. I have a 2007 mustang convertible and I hear water slushing around in the back somewhere and all the floor boards and the trunk it soaked with water will this fix it?

  7. Was it quick or slow to drain? I'm trying with a coat hanger but it's coming out pretty slowly

  8. Hey so I’ve got the same problem with my 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse spyder. The floor on the driver side is always wet and I’ve got no idea why. Will this work for my car as well?
