Hi Robert:
Most likely the drain tube for the a/c is plugged.Sometimes, you can take a coat hanger and slide it up the tube to remove the blockage. If you look on the passenger side firewall under the hood, you should be able to see a 1/2 rubber hose coming out of the firewall. This is the a/c drain tube, try to get the coat hanger up it gently, if this is the problem, water will likely come out once you do this. If you can't get the hanger up there, then you may have to pull the carpet back and you will see where the tube connects to the heater box. You will have to pull it off there and run the hanger through it. You will get wet, so bing towels. If you unhook it under the dash, you will need them to soak up the water.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

My 2005 Dodge Stratus has water getting under the passenger side mi seat somehow


could be coming from a/c condenser there is a drain hose that is supposed to extend through passenger floor board and allow condenser to drain water while a/c is running. Often times someone has done some work and either knocked hose off or accidentally rerouted it under passenger side carpet and gravity takes water down by seat. hope this helps

Buick passenger side front and rear carpets soaking wet


The two most common causes are rain water leaking in or the ac drain being clogged up. I would vote for rain water if the entire carpet area is wet.
Could be coming in around the windshield, or one of the door gaskets.

With heavy rains the carpet on my passenger side front is soaked


SOUNDS LIKE THERE IS A LEAK COMING FROM SOMEWHERE! COULD BE A SOFT PLUG ON THE FIREWALL UNDER THE HOOD! IF IT IS REMOVED, WATER WILL ENTER THE CAB THERE! OR POSSSIBLY UNDER THE CAR ON PASSENGER SIDE! IF IT IS UNDERNEATH, THE TRIM, AND CARPET WILL HAVE TO BE RAISED TO REPLACE THE PLUG FROM UNDER THE CARPET!

Water leaking into 2005 Camry 6 cyl under carpet drivers side.


I think that I can help you. It sounds like your drain-tube is plugged up. Get in the passenger side, and pull the carpet back from under the glove box. Look for a black rubber pipe that goes from a black box, and pokes thru the firewall, on the passenger side. Remove the hose from the box, and have a container ready to catch water. If water comes out of the black box, your drain hose is plugged up. Clean out the clog, and you will be golden.

Wet floors on passenger side after it rains.


Is it possible the water is actually coming from the A/C evaporator case, whose DRAIN IS CLOGGED ? The water produced by the A/C then leaks out of the case, down under the carpeting, then depending how vehicle is parked, can flow to the rear floors and carpet. Hope this helps

It is definately your AC water outlet. The hose must have shifted sort of.

Floor on passenger side gets wet when running air conditioner


I have a 2006 Fusion with the same issue and I fixed it for less than $2. There is a drain tube that goes from the passenger floor board out through the firewall to allow water to drain under the vehicle. However, water can travel along the underside and seep back into the vehicle. I went to a hardware store and bought a few inches of 5/8" tubing. I simply slipped this onto the drain and the water now flows down the tube and safely away from the interior of the car. Been dry ever since.
