My 2014 C-Max SEL has a strange running water sound occasionally which appears to be coming from the upper right passensger side windshield or upper right passenger front door area or A-Pillar?  It happens only when raining but not always.   It is very strange.  I can't seem to make it do it by running a garden hose up in that area.  I had a passenger that heard it the other day too and it wasn't really raining hard at all.  It just occasionally happens.  Anyone come across this?  I'm quite mechanically inclinded and I can't see any obvious reason for this.  I don't see a point in taking it to the dealer if I can't replicate the problem.

I just had my windshield replaced and I have heard water sound too. Only it is on the driver side and not all the time. When I get my car back.  I will keep working on figuring out what it is. ;)

I recommend working with your dealer to get this waterfall dried up. Once you have a diagnosis, please let me know, along with your updated mileage.

Hi Rorysbrown, 

 

Our Ford-Certified Technicians are in the best position to assist with a diagnosis. What's the current odometer reading on your C-MAX? Please let me know the details and I'll see how to help.

I'm at 7,574 kms today.  I bought mine Sept 30, 2014 and I have the Full Ford Extended Care for 5 year / 120,000 kms with $0 deductible and instant rental allowance.  I am working with my dealer, Hallmark Ford who are very good to deal with, and they are contacting Ford Engineering about the issue.   I was in the auto industry for 17 years and really the intermittent problem is the worst kind. I know if I was the Ford dealer, I would be at a loss for what to do and would want instructions from Ford as to what to look at.

Glad to hear that this is being taken care of at the dealer. I'll look into this further on my end. Please send me a private message with the VIN, your full name, and phone number.

Still have my water sound at top driver side of windshield, but have a crack in it now so I'm going to have to replace it in near future. I will talk to FORD ahead of time to see if they have any ideas and then watch new windshield being installed to fix any potential  problems. :)

I'll be interested to see what the issue was and if it is fixed.  I gave up on mine because Ford didn't help me solve the issue.  I traded mine in for a 2015 Mustang.

Something tells me you'll be more patient in figuring out the problem, Paul :)

You took a pretty big hit in the MPG department and rear wheel drive too.  I've had a lot of nice Mustangs, but now. Maybe if the economy ever gets better for me.

As I have mentioned before the problem started when I had my windshield replaced, So I don't see this as a FORD problem. :)
