This is an issue with your firewall gaskets and/or plugs. Can you be more specific with vehicle make and model?

If the car is equipped with a sun roof the drains empty on either side down the pillars that anchors the front window.

1999 Buick LeSabre has no cabin filter but leaks water onto passenger floorboard. Any suggestions?


If it has A/C the drain hose could be blocked and if no A/C it could be a leaking windscreen seal.

Passanger floorboard is wet


Is it water or is it radiator fluid. Radiator fluid will have a sweet smell. If it is water it is probably because the windshield isn't sealed properly and is leaking. If it is radiator fluid then you have a cracked heater core. You can see the result of this by turning on the front defrost and instead of clearing the windsheild it will fog it up. Try pulling the carpet back on the passenger side and put a light dusting of flour on the floor. This should help you locate where the leak is coming from.

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.

Loosing antifreeze and I can't find the leak oil is clean and exhaust looks OK not white smoke. Hvae a 91 Grand Marquis


check the carpet under the heater core in the interior. Check the radiator overflow bottle--sometimes they get a small crack at the bottom and weep out coolant. Check for any heater hose or other coolant hose clamp to be weeping coolant onto hot exhaust parts. The coolant will evaporate and you'll never see a puddle. The best time to check is just after engine shut down when coolant temp and pressure is highest.

I have water leaking onto the carpet on pass, side front & rear and I assume the drain for air cond is pluged. I don't know where the drain is located or how to unplug it. it is a 2003 cadillac...


i believe you have a leaking heater core, if the water is leaking out from under the dash right under the glove compartment this is almost certainly the problem

Carpets are wet in foot wells after all the frosty weather, and not just when it rains. Any solutions?


Have you been adding any coolant? You could have a leaking heater core, which will usually leak to the inside, wetting the carpets in the well. Most American cars locate the heater core on the passenger side of the firewall, so a leak will typically show up on only the passenger side floor. I once had an Audi that had the heater core mounted just about dead center on the firewall. When it started leaking, both sides of the well(s) got wet.

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!

The passenger side floorboard gets wet =


is it only when the ac is on? there is a pan under the ac unit that has a hole in it to allow the condensation to empty. if that hole gets plugged it could cause the condensation to build up and back into the inside of that car. i unplugged mine and floor stayed dry
