View Full Version : 1997 RL Rear Bench Seats Wet and nasty Smell

01-03-2011, 05:24 PM
Just wanted to see if anyone has seen this before. Got a 1997 RL that started smelling pretty ripe couple months ago, and finally pulled the rear seat bench and found wet and moldy under the seats. Not sure where it's coming from, but looks like it might be the two grommets. Been leaking for a long time from the smell and mold. Ideas??? Didn't find any Service Bulletins but some ideas but not sure.
Thanks for any help...

Found it, the drain tube from the moon-roof driver rear side came loose at the fender valve and was dumping water into the driver side trunk wheel well, as car moved it would slash into the back areas. Had to flood the exterior to isolate the problem.
