Question about 1985 Volvo 760

1 Answer

I have a water leak on the left side of my Volvo 1985 760 Turbo

I have noticed that for the last month or so, water has been pooling on the floor on the left side of the car, but not the right. The water seems to be pooling on the floorboards in the driver seat and the left passenger seat in the back, the right side of the car is bone dry but the left is constantly wet. I was wondering if anyone knows where it is most likely leaking from, or how I can remove the carpet to check. Thank you for your help in advance.

I had this same problem on a '92. Get the carpet out even if you have to cut it out and dry the car with a space heater or blow dryer. Cover with a canvas to keep water out. Get under the car and look for holes in the floor or firewall allowing rainwater in. You may need to do as I did and remove the hood, left front fender, wipers, and louvered wiper panel, to look for holes. Use a garden hose to find leak. I found 3 rust holes in the firewall, using a strong flashlight and mirror to see hidden areas. I patched with metal patches, silicone, and roofing tar.

SOURCE: Volvo S40 noticed severe wetness behind passenger

It could be a seal, that isn't.
Also if you're ventilation system has got leaf debris, or general build up, the drain for the overflow, (which are usually located in the front arches) may be blocked.
Hope that helps.

The drain for your A/C may be clogged causing the water to accumulate. You should be able to locate the drain from under the vehicle on the pasenger side, perhaps there is an accumulation of debri such as leaves for example. Also, sunroof drain may also be blocked. I can say I have seen this problem before, and its a good place to start. Good luck

Well, do you suspect rain? If not, a/c water does this. It is remarkably clean, compared to other leaks...Look for little black press on hoses about 1/2 inch in diameter...often dislodged in error by a foot or repair guy.....

This drain comes from the very bottom of the heater box areas...

Toyota 2008 highlander water on rear center passenger floor. A/C drain outside passenger side draining.Seems to puddle on rear floor when A/C is on high and recirculating fresh air. Any clue? problem?


For water to pool on the floor with AC on should indicate a plugged evap drain tube. The tube will have to be inspected for kinks and debris lodged in it. It may be draining some of the water but not enough.

Front passenger side floor is soaking wet.


Sounds like the a/c drain is clogged up you need to look on the firewall near the bottom behind engine pull drain stop of and clean it out and see if that takes care of your problem .

Water leaks into right side floor board during a blowing rain?


My 06 was leaking during rain also. It turned out to be the sunroof. There are two drain tubes in the front of the sunroof that run the water down the corners to the ground and two drain tubes that drain water out the back corners. The water would seep around the glass, which is expected, but both of the tubes on the front of mine were plugged, and the water would overflow behind the dash and fill my floorboards. If my H3 was leaning to the left during a storm then the drivers side would be full of water. If leaning right, then the passenger side. I had to open sunroof and blow compressed air into the drain holes to clear them, but be careful, too much air will separate tubes from sunroof and then you will have to remove the inside paneling around sunroof to get to tubes and reconnect. You may only have one side plugged. you can test it by opening sunroof and pour a little water in the small catch pan in the front of the sunroof and see if it drains as expected (to the ground under the firewall on left AND right side). You can see the holes in each corner of catch pan to drain the water. Plug one with your finger, then the other to find the plugged side. Good luck!! Hope this helps!!

2005 chrysler sebring sedan water on inside of car


There is a rubber hose sticking out of the firewall on the lower passenger side, under the hood. With the A/C running you should see water dripping out of it, or if you let the car run for a few minutes notice a puddle on the ground. If you don't see water, the hose is probably plugged. Sometimes squeezing it a few times will work the crud inside it loose and water should start coming out. Same deal for the back. You'll have to crawl under the vehicle and look where the A/C lines go into the vehicle(it will be on the left or right side in the rear). There should be another rubber drain hose there. Hope this helps...
