  • maverickjedi Feb 25, 2009

    I also have water leaking in nthe front passenger side but it also goes into the rear passenger floor area if the rain is heavy and persistent. If it was the heater core then why does it only leak on rainy days...... the heater core will leak at anytime if that is the problem????

    Is it leaking on rainy days,cold days or when the AC is on? Do you have any odd smells when the heater is put on (if its anti freeze)?

Lots of rain water leaking into front passenger foot rest.


Are you certain it is rain water? It could be condensation from the A/C coil that fails to drain out of the drain pan, or possibly coolant from a leaking heater core. If you are certain it is rain water, depending upon the age of the vehicle, and possibly some other things, here are the possible options:

  1. Leaking door gasket.
  2. Leaking windshield seal due to rust
  3. Leaking windshield seal due to improper installation
  4. Leaking windshield seal due to acoustic (sound) over pressure (if you have extreme sound system with heavy bass)
  5. If you have a sunroof, if the drain hose comes down the passenger side door column, it could be leaking into the passenger compartment rather than drain through the floor pan.

What causes water to come in passenger footwell?


Is it fresh water or engine coolant? It may not be coming from the outside of the car. If your heater core has a leak, it may be leaking into the passenger compartment. If this is the case, you also run the risk of running low on engine coolant and overheating or damaging you engine.

Have a 94 Buick century. Replaced thermostate. Running hot. Looks as tho is leaking underneath front near pump. And also in passenger floor board can't see the leak from inside. It's just alwa


Whenever I see a system which is leaking from more than one or two places, I do a head gasket check because that tells me that the system is experiencing above normal pressures. the wet floor is a heater core. whether it's a water pump or some other thing near it only you can tell. Actually it rarely happens, but the wet floor could be the hose where it meets the heater core at the firewall; again, only you will be able to tell the difference. if the hose connection looks dry, assume that it is the core itself.

Heater core is leaking on the floor


I had the same problem with my 2001 Mercury Marquis, but it wasn't the heater core, it was the compartment for the condensate drain for the air conditioning and the compartment to catch the rain water that comes down the windshield and drains through the windshield wiper cowling. You have to take off windshield wiper on passenger side and cowling underneath the wiper of the passenger side and you will see a screen over in the corner and that's where the box is for the drain. so much trash was down in there that the flapper wouldn't open to let the water out. Ours only leaked when it rained, but it looked like it could have been the heater core. Good luck.

When it rains, water comes in from under the glovebox on our 2007 chevy equinox.


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. It is probably coming from the strut tower on the passenger side of the engine compartment. In the few cases I have seen, this is where it came into the glovebox. You need to use a sealer of some kind and see the strut tower area and firewall. Seal all creases in this area and it should stop the leaking Jeff.

Water is leaking in the passenger side floor when the ac is on. 2008 tribeca.


This means your air conditioner drain tube is clogged. This will take about a hour shop rate to repair or if you look behind the glovebox you will see it. Thanks

Water leak on fwd and back passenger side after every rain storm


pull your carpet up near the leak area and look for muddy body seams. it is possible one of the factory body seams are leaking- possibly in the cowl(under wipers) area, especially if it leaks when the car is sitting. there will be dirt/mud around the seams that are leaking. also you can check door seals by running the car on HIGH DEFROST with all doors and windows closed. spray around with a 50/50 soapy water solution. obviously bubbles will form around your leak.
