Question about 2003 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Correct to findings

I have pulled carpet back and when AC is on floor gets wet. I looked at drain under car and it is draining correctly. Is there a additional line besides the one that usually drains leaving the puddles of water under the car. If so were do I find it? Any information will be helpful.

It may be partially plugged up, so whatever can't drain out is ending up in your carpet. This is a rather common problem, so I'm quite confident u need to clean out the hose, u should be able to access it under the dash, passenger side, low on firewall. It can be blown out w/ compressed air, or carefully use a bendable wire to insert and unclog. This problem is made worse by junk (leaves, twigs, pine needles, etc) accumulating in the grill (cowl) in front of the windshield. This is where your fresh air for heat/cooling is drawn in, and the 'junk' eventually plugs up your a/c drain, so keep it clean, u will at least delay it happening again soon. Let me know how u make out.

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.

There is a drain stopped up,look under the hood,right below where the ac lines go into the firewall inside the car,the drain will be there a the bottom,use air pressure to blow into the drain to clear it out,when clear,it will flow out like a water fall.

Front passenger side carpet getting wet

The AC evaporator units have a drain hose that runs through the floor because condensed moisture is a fact of life with AC units. Yours is plugged. You will have to get under the vehicle and look for the hose where it comes out, then take like coat hanger wire and clean it out, It is somewhere in the vicinity of where the passenger foot well meets the fire wall. If you have to raise the vehicle to get under it, make certain you have it safely supported. If you don't have the stuff, drive the passenger side wheels up on a good curb and use some cardboard to slide under.

Wet carpet under front Passenger seat

You have drain blockage in the condesor case itself. There is a small tube that will drain the condensor case, the big black plastic case that contains most of your a/c system inside the car. This case collects moisture and that must drain normally from the case drain to the outside of your car onto the ground.. If this drain is plugged, you will have leakage on to the floor. If the moisture is allowed to remain in the carpet, mildew will set in and then you will have to replace the carpet.
