Sounds like water is sloshing around behind the dash


possibly is
at the bottom of the windscreen there is a plenum chamber that collects the water from the screen and drains it out via a tube either side into the front wheel wells
these drains can block up from leaves , dirt or rust and that will then retain water in the chamber giving you the sloshing noise as you drive
the chanber is where you normally get fresh air into the vehicle when you open up the fresh air control

We have a 2005 civic and water is leaking onto the passenger side floor when making left turn and at other times. We hear water sloshing around in the dash. We are looking for the hose that drains water...


Could be the drain tube is partially clogged. It is usually located on the fire-wall or down towards the floor pan under the car. It is usually close to where the A/C lines go thru the fire-wall. About 1/2 inch diameter sticking straight out but may have a 90 degree elbow pointing down.
Also, it's been extra hot and humid all over and moisture could be freezing inside the unit when on MAX A/C, then suddenly melting when switched to normal. This opens the outside air door and allows warm/hot air into the unit instead of recirculating the cold air inside the car. The drain may not be able to handle a large, sudden quantity of water.
Perform a "driveway" test. Open the hood, start engine and run the A/C on normal with the windows or doors open. Locate the drain tube by looking for water dripping. Once located twist 2 or 3 pipe cleaners together and verify the tube is clean. Then close the doors/windows and switch to MAX A/C. Check for water dripping. If it stops dripping, water is freezing inside and now you know why!

Location of ac condensate drain , it's plugged and leaking into the car


The weep drain is located on the left and right sides of the firewall and you may see a rubber tube sometimes, and hear a sloshing of water building up, unless, it's all leaking onto your floor.

I have a 2003 Volvo S60 that ends up with a wet carpet in front of the passenger seat whenever it rains (Seattle). Also, when I am driving and turning left or right at corners, I can hear water sloshing...


The drain for your A/C may be clogged causing the water to accumulate. You should be able to locate the drain from under the vehicle on the pasenger side, perhaps there is an accumulation of debri such as leaves for example. Also, sunroof drain may also be blocked. I can say I have seen this problem before, and its a good place to start. Good luck

The roof drain tubes are clogged. Look at the front corners for debris blocking the drain tube holes.

Leak into passenger footwell (LHS) on Renault Scenic RX4


It sounds like you may have a blocked drain in the evaporator box. This is where the heater core and evaporator are located.

If you look under the vehicle about where the heater is located, you should see a small tube sticking down ( plastic or rubber ) this should be he drain.

You can squeese the tube open and see if it will drain, If not it may be clogged up with dirt and debris that may require the box to be removed and cleaned.

Check the air inlet, usually located in front of the windsheild, just under the wipers for debris. Keep this area clear. If it has a lot of leaves or other things around it, it can cause water to build up and flood the evaporator box, as well as get down inside.

You may need to take this to a shop that can put it on a lift and get at the drain from the underside, they may be able to clear it without too much troble
