good morning and thank you for inquiring with JustAnswer.This has been a common concern with the taurus due to water intrusion from the cowl into the heatercase has caused blower motor as well as resistor failures on all these model taurus and sables. I suggest having the cowl panel sealed, and a rainhat extension seal installed to correct this concern
I hope my assistance helped you and resolved your concern, if you need further assistance please ask.

This article supersedes TSB 03-15-06 to update the vehicle model years and build date information.
Some vehicles built between 5/1/2001 and 12/15/2003 may exhibit water in the blower case or on the passenger side floor, an inoperative climate control blower motor, a motor that operates on high speed only, and/or a blower motor resistor failure.
Inspect and seal cowl area and install Rain-Hat Extension Seal. Inspect and replace blower motor and/or blower motor resistor if there is evidence of water/corrosion. Refer to the following Service Procedure for details.
I am unable to view the images, do I have access to them?
The cowl is warped, don't know if it will seal. I'll probably order a new one. I was trying to make do with used. I did pick up the rain shield at the local Ford garage. Parts manager said at one time they had the repair kit when it was a TBS. Thanks
In order to assist the other Expert I am posting the TSB so you can see the pictures,
