Has anyone had wet carpet on passenger side?

Has anyone had leaking on the passenger side floor board? The car does not have a sunroof and its not the windshield. The dealer says it condensation and that it is normal, but the carpet is starting to smell.

    I own a 2011 Sonata and also have a soaking wet passenger side floor, the dealer told me I had a leaf stuck in the drain hose. Once again after a large rain storm my floor is soaked. The dealer told me they would fix it this time but next time I was on my own!!!! Do I have to expect this for the ownership of this vehicle or is there a true solution to this problem. I have NEVER owned a car that leaked inside. HELP!!!

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.

Where are the chassis drain plugs on a 2003 Pontiac bonneville? My car leaks in the trunk and onto the floor on the front passenger floor


Your trunk leak most likely is rubber seal that runs the perimeter of trunk when trunk lid is open. Leak on pass floor can be a combination of things. Heater core or if car has sunroof, there is drains that run down windshield posts. Carpet will be wet and sticky if heater core is leaking (not to mention coolant level low) If it's sunroof drain, car has to be put on a lift and drains blown out with compressed air.

My floor boards in my Cavalier are Soaked ..


If you've been using your air conditioner during this time, and it hasn't rained at all, then the small drain at the bottom of the a/c evaporator core may be plugged. When you use the a/c to cool the car the evaporator coil [located next to the heater core in the ductwork under the dash] is very cold and moisture from the hot humid air condenses on it as a result. This condensation dribbles down the core and accumulates in the plastic housing under it where it should then drain out a small hole and drip onto the ground. If the small drain gets plugged, which happens quite often, then the water fills up the housing until it overflows and then runs out and soaks the carpet on the front passenger side. The drain is located on the engine side of the firewall, passenger side, down low where the firewall begins to curve under. Usually a puff of air will clear the clog and the drain will work fine again. If the carpet is really wet it would be a good idea to remove it and get everything dry again as it tends to get pretty smelly if left wet. One last note: usually a leaky a/c unit will only make the passenger side carpet wet unless it's been leaking for a long time while a leaky windshield seal can make both sides wet depending on where it is leaking. Good luck, hope this helps you out!

What would cause wet carpet and water on the passenger side floor


there is a leak because the foam has disintegrated, or the seal has broken open down by where the feet of the passenger is. Rust stains tell me that the leak may be caused by a break in the body somewhere.

Try spraying expanding foam in the area between the plastic and the metal parts to try to seal out moisture from coming into the passenger compartment.

2001 Pontiac Sunfire passenger floor is soaking wet after rain.


This is either two things. 1: The air conditioner condenser is leaking and will have to be siliconed, or you have a bead door or other weather stip that is allowing water in.

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

My 1996 tahoe is leaking water ,carpets are wet


Statistacally--most leaks come from sunroofs and yes they can be one side or the other. Happens from clogged drains. Sunroof drains run across the headliner and down the a-pillar. you can have them cleaned and checked. This is all assuming you have a sunroof. Hope I helped. Thanks.
