1999 Buick LeSabre has no cabin filter but leaks water onto passenger floorboard. Any suggestions?

If it has A/C the drain hose could be blocked and if no A/C it could be a leaking windscreen seal.

Water coming in through blower

It sounds as if your heater box/ AC condenser box has stopped up drains. Look in the engine compartment against the firewall directly by where the heater box is on the other side of and you should see the drain hose. I would suggest using a vacuum hose reduced down to remove any trash blocking it. If you use compressed air, it will only blow the trash back into the box and will cause a stoppage at a later date. I definately would not run a wire up through it as you might puncture the heater coill/ ac condenser coil. Good Luck

AC draining into passenger side of cabin

if you have a sun roof check drain could cause water to leak inside also. sometimes a bad heater core can cause water to drain on the passenger side

Could be the drain for the ac is plugged up. Usually when this happens the passenger side floor gets wet, but it could be coming out on the driver's side when you take a right turn.
The drain should be on the bottom of the firewall near the floor, you should see water dripping onto the ground when the ac is on.

Hi there, My Touareg 2008 with A/C I found that the carpet under my feet is wet and there is some water lakage coming from the right side of the driver's foot well near the petrol pedal. The water is cold...

Find the drain under the car for the ac condensation,and clean it out with air pressure.It will be directly below where the ac lines go into the car.

Water drip inside car when its rains on a crown victoria ford ,on the floor board . had my ac fix two years ago cause hot air was blowing in cause the ac air was not coming in to good . something about...

Most likely the windshield is starting to leak -
Second choice is - there is a drain hose - it may be clocked up - please pull up the floor man - and look for a rubber hose that goes down through the floor board.
If that hose is clogged it will only be wet when you run the AC and you will notice not much water coming from under the car from the drain hose which exits under where the passengers feet are.

Best of it - hope this helps

I need to find the water drain plug or where it drains the water out of the air conditioner on a 2000 caravan. It seems to be plugged

it is leaking into the van on the passenger side isnt it? I bet I am right. I dont know if your has an in cabin filter or not. if it does then I suggest to take it out until the problem is fixed. if the removal of the filter fixes the problem then replace it with a new one. the drain for the AC should be located on the passenger side fire wall. check and see if there is a hose that connected to the vent drain that may have fell off. it this is the case then air can be forced into the drain at the fire wall while you are driving. the AC fan should be able to blow out of the drain normally and thus helping to keep it drained. it should have a path that faced downward, that way when driving the outside air passing by the hose while driving will actually have a slight suction effect on the drain.
you get the idea. hope this helps. if there is no hose and it is still draining outside. then the wind outside while driving could cause the water drip to flow down the fire wall itself and all it takes is a poor seal around where the drain goes thru the firewall and it could leak back into the vehicle around this drain
