Question about 1995 Jeep Wrangler
After it rains heavily and I'm pulling out of my driveway I turn the wheel and water pours out from under the dash and soaks my feet! I've heard about a possible "firewall filter" that may be clogged but have not been able to find one. It is a considerable amount of water so I've ruled out the windshield....any ideas?
There is a drain for the vent air box under the hood on the firewall. Open the hood and look on the left side of the engine for a rubber tube hanging vertically from the firewall. This tube gets filled with crud (leaves, dirt, etc) and plugs up keeping the water from draining until you turn a corner and it spills over into the cab... on your feet. Been there done that.
The drain has a **** in the bottom- pull it up, squeeze it at the end and use a screwdriver or similar to clean the end out.
Forget windshields, firewall sealants, and all the other remedies suggested all over the internet for water leaks until you look at this- it's the cause 99.9% of the time

It turned out there is a hose under the hood on the passenger side that is open ended & pinched that drains the water from the vents on the hood to the ground. After awhile the debris ( leaves, dirt, etc.) clogs this up and water will back up inside the dash. I cleaned this hose & no more steamy Jeep! Thank god!!
