INTERIOR LEAK

1998 Lincoln Town Car

Interior problem
1998 Lincoln Town Car V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 57500 miles

I bought a 1998 Lincoln Town Car in October 2009. It had been kept in a garage by its first owners and not subjected to the elements unless they were actually driving in " weather". I discovered not long after that the interior was taking on water every time it rained. I took it to a mechanic who said they blew out the drain lines (which had been blocked) from the sunroof and that the problem should be fixed. Because it had not rained a great deal after that, I thought the problem was gone. It wasn't. I wound up taking the vehicle to another mechanic who said they blew out different drain lines, also from the sunroof, and that the problem should be solved. While the water that has gotten inside my car recently is not nearly as much as before, the interior of my car on the passenger side, particularly in the backseat floor, is still damp and I'm very concerned about mold, in addition to wanting this problem to be fixed. Any ideas what might be contributing to this problem?

Hi there,

I would be concerned that they may have used to much pressure when blowing out the drain lines, I think that they are a plastic tube and it may be perished and cracked or dislodged, I would get a panel shop to investigate this for you.

I have a 1992 Cartier and 2000 Signature both without sunroofs, both have developed leaks in the rear passenger floor boards. The 2000 just since the last big snow. The 92 from the time I bought it.
