SOURCE: leak onto floor passenger side from neck of ac drain through firewall

It's not your heater core. If your heater core is out it would leak antifreeze. My wife's 97 Grand Cherokee had the same problem. It is condensation from your AC coming leaking through a round hole in the AC unit at the firewall. Pull the carpet back and dry out underneath it, there will be a lot of water and we had to leave the carpet pulled back with a fan blowing on it all weekend to dry out. I fixed this about 8 years ago so if I remember correctly, the was a plastic part of the AC at the firewall that had a hole in it that the water was coming out of, I could see leaves and debris in the hole so I know it was part of the drain system. I cleaned out what debris I could and used a cone shaped peice of rubber and twisted it in to plug the hole and tapped over the plug to ensure that it wouldn't back out with vibrations, etc. After you dry everything off start the engine and turn the AC on max, you'll be able to see the where the water is leaking from after the AC gets cold. Hope this helps, it drove us nuts for a year before we figured it out and the wet carpet smell wasn't pleasant.

SOURCE: Water leaking from under the glove box

under the cowl grille where your wiper arms are located is a cabin air filter usually water leaks in from there stick a dollar bill between door and weatherstrip close door and check for slight tension. if bill pulls out without any pressure at all, it could very well be there. make sure you go up down and all around the door

SOURCE: water leaks from behind glove box onto floor

Three things can cause this.A leaking heater core,leaking windshield(when it rains,or has been washed),and sometimes not often the AC drain plug can be clogged.I would go with the heater core,look under the dash you will see a black plastic box with 8mm screws about 6-10 of them remove them from the bottom first and gently pull on the cover you should get water running out.Replace the heater core,if water present.

SOURCE: AC does not engage when turned on

Take the glove box out. Behind the fuse box you will find a big gob of black tape, (it looks like a box shape all taped up. Take the tape off and you will find three inline fuse holders taped together. The AC fuse is the 10 amp one.

Water is leaking from the floor vents what could be the proble?


Check your heater radiator. It is usually mounted behind/near the glove box areas on most cars. It is like a small version of the large radiator that is mounted on the front of your vehicle under the hood. Antifreeze and coolant (does it smell a little like antifreeze?) flows thru your front radiator, thru the block and hoses, and cycles thru the radiator for your heating system. If the radiator is leaking, often it cycles thru the vents on the interior.
Another possibility MIGHT be the AC system and condensation/AC coolant that is building up in/on the lines and transferring thru the vents.

Leak onto floor behind the glove box, also making defrost slow to work.


i'm thinking this leak may actually be caused by a rusted out spot or hole on the hood of the vehilce, or by the windshield seal coming loose allowing water to enter..

if the cars antenna is above that area where the leak is it can also come from that..

basically it will enter the hood, run down the sides and gather on the floor under the glove compartment...

you said its only when its raining right ?? so its definitely a leak.

2002 Mitsubishi Lancer leaking water under glove box and a noise in that same area becoming more noticeable. Air conditioning unit?


Typically, when you have water leaking from underneath your glove box, that means that your heater core is leaking. Your heater core is basically a small radiator located inside your car, just behind your glove box, thjat a fan blows through for the purpose of warming the interior of your car and defrosting the inside of your windshield. This core is fed water via your engines water pump, from your engine where the water is heated, through the heater core and back through the radiator located under the hood of your car and through the engine once again, in a continual cycle. What happens after time, the heater core is of a much thinner construction than your radiator and will corrode through in a much lesser time. The other things which commonly occurs in the heater cores today, is that when your car overheats or blows a head gasket, it will allow the exhaust gas from your engine into your water system and create a tremendous amount of pressure. The heater core is not designed to deal with this extra pressure and typical blows out and leaks water onto the floor board of the passenger side of the vehicle. Heater cores are not all that expensive a part, but to replace it, can be quite difficult on some make and model cars. This information applies to most all make and model cars both previously and currently produced.

1998 plymouth voyager also leaks from behind the glove box


check the smell of the liquid. if it smells like anti freeze...heater core is leaking. no smell and it could be moisture from the a/c evaporator core (condensation like on a cold soda can) or the windshield seal is leaking.

Water in floor


water leaking to the flooring means two things, you could have a heater core leak or a clogged ac drain.

first, if it is a heater , you will notice the the wter could be warm and may have color either brown or greenish or yelowish. you may need an expert to repair the heater core and be warned that you may loose all your water in your radiator that would lead to engine breake down.

next, if it is cold and colorless, then it could just be coming fom your evaporator which is located underneath the glove compartment under the dash. you may unclogged the drain hose from the engine compartment. look for a small hose that comes out of the firewall located at the bottom part of the firewall and clean it with anything that could be inserted in it.. a small thin rod would do the trick.. you would notice the water flow like a fall once the clogged has been removed.

i hope i was able to fix ur problem,

tnx 4 using fixya,
