water in cab

every now and again ill find water on the pass. floor board and trace it up to the firewall right under the dash. it is only water, no coolant.

there was a pretty good amount today, it has also rained for a week straight. its all over the silver cylinder thing on the firewall... any ideas what this is?

my truck is a xl so its not ruining carpet or anything, just annoying.

When this happened in my truck I discovered the seal on the air intake for the heater fan under the cowl was leaking. It would fill up the housing and leak through the vent on the passenger side under the glove box. I just pulled the inner fender back and drilled a small hole in the bottom to allow the water to drain. This is a pretty common problem apparently as I've done the same thing on my dads and uncles super duties.

there is a opening to the upper left of the steering shaft, mine has a taped cover thing on it. yours might be leaking.

If you have a sunroof they have a tendency to leak, mine is and it's leaking in running down the driver pillar to the floor board

I'll second this.

My air intake was leaking and filling up the fan housing as well.

Pull out the fan (three bolts), and I bet you will find the bottom of the housing full of water. It can only get so full before it starts to leak out the blend door... on to the passenger side floor.

Ford in their infinite wisdom neglected to bother to put a drain hole in the bottom of the fan housing to overcome this issue. Once water gets in there by any means, it has no way out.

If you pull the fan out, you can get in there with a drill and poke a hole in the bottom of the housing. It is on the "intake" side of the fan, so it doesn't really matter how big you want to make it (make it big enough it won't plug itself back up with slime/goo/mud/dust).

My floor's been dry ever since.

If it is your sunroof leaking, you'd probably find water in your glove compartment too (had that problem at the same time as well).

water leak in cab

I was chasing the same issue and it ended up being the third cab light up on the back of the cab. Pulled it off and found the gasket to be missing a section and it was still wet in there. I also could see where the water was traveling. I installed a new one last night, hoping this fixes it. I also pulled the cowl off under the windshield and there was a bunch of junk in there as well that i cleaned. Hope this helps anyone facing this problem. See attached photos.
