There is condensation on the inside of the windshield and the passenger side floor is wet. Wanted to know what could be the problem. If it is the heater core is this something I can fix on my own.

    Have you determined the cause of the leak, per my suggestion? Please advise. Thanks.

    If the heater core was leaking, the condensation would be very difficult to remove with a paper towel; it would streak real bad, and there would be a sweet odor in the passenger compartment. What I would look for is a blocked condensate drain tube. Open the passenger door, and pull back the floor carpet under the dash. Look for and find a black hose that comes from in front of the heater box, in front of the console and pokes out thru the firewall. Have a container ready. Remove the end of the hose connected to the heater box. Catch any water. Then, inspect the hose for obstructions. Let me know what you find.

Heater core has developed a leak.
Usually not something the average Joe can do.
I can not Judge your mechanical aptitude.
I would recommend a mechanic. Some parts of the dash (or the entire dash) must be removed.

Water is leaking on passenger side running by fuse box how to fist problem On 2010 impala water seems to be coming from top of windshield


Most likely it is the condensation from the air condition building up. There is a small tube under the car that the condensation is supposed to drain through, but it is easy for the tube to get clogged by debris causing the condensation to overflow onto the floor inside. The best way to clear it out is to go under the car and locate the tube, it will be on the passenger side underneath. Use compressed air to blow the debris out of the tube.

I noticed that my passenger side floorboard is wet, what would be causing it?


there's a few different things that could be causing your floor to be wet, one is your heater/air conditioner unit has a drain tube on it to drain off condensation out of the box (inside the car) that contains the heater core and air conditioning evaporator, it is designed to drain to the outside of the car near the engine area, they often become plugged up with debris which don't allow them to drain though the hose and then begin dripping inside the car on the passenger side, the other possible case is that the windshield has been replaced and not sealed properly and water is entering around the windshield and dripping on the floor.also there is a minor possibility that water is entering around the door seal, although unless there has been damage to the door or door seal is very unlikely. thanks for using fixya

I have an unseen leak soaking front passenger floor. When I took up the carpet the insulation under it was completely saturated.


Either your heater core is leaking, is the fluid sweet smelling and slimy? Or the condensation drain from your air conditioner is plugged causing the condensation to drain inside as opposed to outside. Or the glass seal is bad and rain water is coming inside from around the windshield. Heater core is going to need a repair guy, condensation drain can usually be fixed in about 5 minutes at any shop with a lift, glass leak you are going to need an auto glass shop's help.

When a/c is on passenger side floor gets wet in my 2003 dodge durango


Check the condensation drain and make sure it is clear and allowing the condensation to drain outside the vehicle. This is normally located on the passenger side Engine compartment firewall area at the bottom. It most often looks like a copper tube that has been bent over at 90 degree angle toward the ground.

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

I have water leaking on the right rear floor passenger side


Sounds to me like your issue is with condensation from your air conditioner. The condensation isn't properly draining, probably from a damaged or clogged drain hose.

Carpet on passenger side gets wet


The drain from the a/c under the dash is plugged up and needs to be cleared. If you check from under the vehicle, u should be able to find the end of the drain tube on the passenger side, behind or near the front wheel. Carefully run a wire up the tube to dislodge the obstruction (goop build up). You can also use compressed air.

Condensation in 1999 hyundai accent


Well, first of all, whats the cause of the problem?

Lets go out warm up your car, get it nice in hot in there.
Turn off the heat and feel around the edges of the windshield for a draft, if so, the seal around the windshield is gone.

I had this problem with my Neon, and the windshield was my first thought. The simply answer was that my floors were wet, when I turned on my heat, the water on the floors evaporated and then condensed on the windshield. Is this possible for your situation?
