So, today I found out that my 2011 MKS had the pond option in the front and rear passenger footwell. Imagine my delight as Iím driving hearing this sloshing sound. The water is actually underneath the carpet, we did have very bad storms the night before with driving rain. For the life of me I canít find the source of the leak. I will check the moonroof drain, and the cowl drains. Where are the door drains located/what do they look like? When compressed air is recommended I assume it means using an air compressor, not the compressed air computer type cans.

Any discolored parts on the headliner?  When my moonroof was slightly out of alignment it would trickles water down to the floor,  but would also discolor the roof.

The roof alignment was only off a tiny bit ..  but allowed water trickle in and FILL my backseat passenger floor area.

No water on headliner whatsoever

So I checked the moonroof drains, I checked the door drains, I blew those out with my air compressor. When I checked the cowl drain on the passenger side it was clear, I noticed the owl itself was very loose. When I checked the drivers side I found what was in the pic, pieces of windshield, mulch and dirt.  I shop vacíd then I used my air compressor to blow it out. Then I realized the cowl was not properly seated in the channel under the windshield. So I seated it and clicked everything back into place clips and all. I vacuumed up at least 2 1/2 gallons of water in the front and rear passenger footwell. Iím thinking the cowl flooded and the hvac intake was the point of entry into the cabin. There is i plastic type shroud that is in the front passenger footwell that I suspect was the point of entry for the water.

Oh man, glad you found it.  Hopefully that fixes it.  I live out in Cali, we don't know what rain is, lol.
