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.

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: 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: rain water leak

http://www.dodgedakotas.com/boards/dea/524.html

DodgeDakotas dot com has a lot of postngs about water under the Dakota's passenger side carpeting. My own 2005 is leaking, too. Main culprits to check: AC drain tube @ firewall (I think that some Dakotas had to have a 90-degree tube added to the outside end so that water wouldn't blow back into the cab. Great desing, Dodge. Rear window seal; Along the right-side window/roof pillar; the gromment in the passenger side door for a wire pathway. Sounds like some get this fixed under warranty - others meet w. resistance. Good Luck!

Water is running under my dash onto floorboard in my 2007 dodge caliber after it rains. Where is the water comming from


You need to find the conduits for rain - one of them has a leak in it probably from corrosion. Try to locate just where the water is getting in and see if you can use a sealer to stop the water from getting in.

I would remove the glove box and anything else in the way and look for the source when hosing down the car.

2010 Scion xD a/c raining under dash on passenger side


It almost has to be a drain problem.
The HVAC box is supposed to be a sealed unit and any moisture inside is supposed to drain onto the ground under the car.
If you had wet carpets you could have excessive moisture inside the passenger compartment, but the ac unit should still pull the moisture out of the air and drain it onto the ground.
Is it possible the box is not sealed and the excessive water is leaking into the compartment before it gets to the drain tube ?

Water leaks on passenger floor in my 97 honda civic


I have a 1997 Toyota Camry. Water was collecting on the front PASSENGER floor after a rain. I opened my sunroof and found the front drainage holes (about 1/8" diameter) in the corners of the track sunroof track. They looked clear. I poured a bottle of water in track and watched the result. Sure enough, water started dripping from the right ride of the glove box on to the floor. I started tearing out the interior panels to trace the leak. What I found is that if I poured the bottle of water REALLY slow into the sunroof hole = no leaks. But if I pour it too fast the small 1/8" hole cannot keep up and the track overflows! THAT is where the leak comes from in my car! If water overflows the track, then it makes its way down the column trim, around the glove box and on to the floor.

So I need to help the 1/8" sunroof hole drain faster. I took some 18AWG TFFN electrical wire and jammed it into the hole to help clean it out. I then removed the black plastic mud flap behind my front tire and blew out all of the leaves and rotted debris that where behind that flap. It was packed with junk! I poured more into the 1/8" hole and it seemed to drain quicker.

I hope this information helps others.

A leaking windscreen,door seal or window seal. Run a garden hose over your car and use baby powder to pin point where the water is in running from.

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.

Van is leaking on the inside passanger front , under the glove bo


The drain that channels the condensation from the air conditioning system out onto the ground is most likely plugged, which backs it up onto the passenger side front floor. Clearing the drain should take care of it. Probably need to take it to someone who works on A/C or a dealer, relatively simple maintenance. If the moisture gets under the carpet, the musty smell will never leave, so take care of it promptly!

There is a water leak somewhere in my 98 toyota camry that leaks into my passenger side floor. There is no sun roof and no visible leaks from the windows or doors. Any thoughts? A/C leak maybe?


Check the A/C condensate drain tube, which is under the glove box, towards the center console, going thru the firewall. If it is plugged, the water in the A/C box will have no place to go & leak onto the floor. This is a common issue, and running the A/C on the "fresh" mode compounds this problem. When the A/C is on, the water removed from the interior is supposed to drain out thru the firewall onto the street.
