January 11, 2007It's really strange, when I wash the stang no water comes in but when I drive it when it snows the snow comes in somewhere above the windshield. Just a few flakes but I can't figure out how they're getting in the car. I don't feel a draft up there when I'm driving so I'm a bit perplexed.
January 11, 2007LOL....Snowing in the VERT....put the roof up...LOLOL
January 11, 2007No really! I drove it up to Snoqualmie a few times when it was really snowing and it was like I was in one of those freaking Snow Globes
January 11, 2007I have seen that before. My brother had a vert in No. Dak. and in the winter there were drifts inside the car. On his car it wasn't coming from the front but the sides.
January 11, 2007That would suck having that much snow, glad mine's just a few flakes. And no I'm not one of them.
January 11, 2007You could pick up a small roll of that gray closed cell self adhesive foam tape (it's about 1/2" tall weatherstrip on a roll with some adhesive backing... squishes flat). and just temporarily put a strip of it along the top of the windshield to close any gaps. Then peel it off later.
Shouldn't cost more than $5 at a place like Lowe's or Home Depot.
January 12, 2007Speaking of a similar topic, sorry to bring my own questions in this topic, but I have noticed that I have a good amount of condinstation and ice on the interior of my car being left out in the cold. Are my seals that bad in the vert or is this normal...I can't imagine the side windows sealing very well as they are barely pressed together when up, but it shouldn't freeze on the inside either. I don't know, maybe someone can point me in the right direction or just tell me that it's what a vert does (should have got a coupe). Thanx.
January 12, 2007When we had our 01 GT convertible it used to leak right above where the speakers are on the doors. I don't think they're very leakproof.
January 12, 2007Just an observation... If the top doesn't seal well, and the temperature is below the dew point, you're going to have condensation inside, no matter what. If it gets below freezing the I'd expect it to freeze along with everything else.
I imagine you could minimize this by making sure to leave your vents closed in the 'off or max A/C' position (no reason to allow any condensation in that way). But in the summer that can cause some condensation from the A/C that ends up growing mold and getting stinky.
You could try keeping a drying agent in the car, to absorb moisture out of the air.
