06-25-4 WATER TRAPPED IN DOORS

Publication Date: November 30, 2006

FORD: 2005-2006 Five Hundred
MERCURY: 2005-2006 Montego


ISSUE:
Some 2005-2006 Five Hundred and Montego vehicles may experience water trapped in the doors causing a sloshing noise.

ACTION:
Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition.

SERVICE PROCEDURE

These doors are "wet" doors which allow water to flow through the inside of the door and then exit through one of two drain holes in the bottom of the door. If these drain holes become plugged, it is possible to restrict the escape of water that enters the interior of the door. The rocker seal at the bottom of the door may also restrict the escape of water from the door as well. (Figure 1)


Figure 1 - Article 06-25-4



Inspect the drain holes in doors and clear any obstruction that may be present. (Figures 2 and 3) With the door open and window raised, run water on the window glass and visually validate that water is flowing out of drain holes.


Figure 2 - Article 06-25-4




Figure 3 - Article 06-25-4


Trim notch in flange of rocker seal at drain holes to prevent any restriction of water flow. (Figures 4 and 5)


Figure 4 - Article 06-25-4




Figure 5 - Article 06-25-4


Close door and run water on outside window to confirm water is draining from doors.
