Question about 1999 Chrysler Sebring

1 Answer

Convertible leaks After 9 years my 99 Sebring has decided to flood the passengers side during exposure to a VERY heavy rainstorm. The water does not enter around the side windows. I'm at a loss to figure out how the water is getting into the car. It has been 2-3 inches deep on the passengers side both front and back. The only thing I've been able to think of is that, about 2 weeks ago, I ran it through a car wash which used very powerful blowers to dry the car. Water definitely gets inside the car and (I think) into the frame. Any ideas? Thanks a lot. Harry

    Thank you very much. I have cleared the drains, which let out a lot of water, and will find out if the solution is final after the next big rain.
    I appreciate your help.

Great news!!! I know exactly what your problem is. We had the same problem on our 2000 sebring. Its a bad design on the drainage holes. I would guess that you have this problem after a rain. You need to do more research on the owners group website, but there are drainage hole that are on the bottom edge of your car just below the sideview mirrors. You will need to lie on the ground, take a clothes hanger and unclog the holes. The holes arent perfectly round, they don't even look like holes. I wish I knew the exact website for you to check but this solved our problem.

Bulletin No.: 03-01-39-011B
Date: November 22, 2005
TECHNICAL
Subject:
Water Leaks Into Passenger Compartment Through HVAC Module Condensate Drain Tube When Parked on Incline/Uphill Position (Install Auxiliary Drain Tube Extension)
Models:
2003-2006 Saturn ION Sedans and Coupes
Supercede:
This bulletin is being revised to include the 2005 and 2006 model years. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 03-01-39-011A (Section 01 - HVAC).
Condition
When vehicle is parked on an incline with the front end up during a rainstorm or when driving uphill during a rainstorm, water may leak into the passenger compartment through the condensate drain tube opening of the HVAC module.
Cause
Water may drain out of the cowl drain, then drain down the front of the dash panel in the engine compartment and seep into the HVAC module condensate drain tube opening. The water then collects in the heater core cover and upon acceleration may leak into the passenger compartment through the heater core cover seams.
Correction 1. Open the hood and locate the HVAC module condensate drain tube in the engine compartment on the right side of the dash panel.
Important: During installation of the auxiliary drain tube, do not make contact with the HVAC module foam gasket located at the base of the HVAC module condensate drain tube. If the auxiliary drain tube is pushed on too far and makes contact with the foam gasket, water may leak into the passenger compartment.
2. Slide the auxiliary drain tube onto the HVAC module condensate drain tube and make sure that the auxiliary drain tube is angled downwards after installation.cansmo_121.gifcansmo_122.gif

Water leaks onto the passenger floorboard during heavy rain


Floor plug or plugs have fallen out most likely.There Should be some plastic plugs under the floor board outside. Look to visualy check to insure they are still in one piece.

A busted heater core will flood the passenger side floorboard when the heat is turned on.

Water leak on passenger side on 99 chevy s 10 not anterfreeze, leaks when not being driven


there is only one thing that leaks water there, that is the AC condensation drain, water forms as part of the AC cooling the evaporator core, this water must be drained away or it will flood onto passenger area, so there is a drain on the passenger side at bottom of firewall, will leak allot of water depending on how humid the air is.
