If you have air conditioning, and are using it all the time, the wetness problem should be the evaporator hose is clogged or broken running the condensate water into your car instead of outside and under the car..
You would then have to go up under the dash, and also look most carefully at the area of the passenger's feet, (only under the hood of the car), to see what has happened to the black rubber condensation hose.
So, let's say you don't use the A/C all the time. Let's say your A/C is not it.
Now, you may have a rust hole or a hole from a car wreck that was not properly fixed that is leaking the water in from the windshield wiper tray on the front of the car.
I have a car like yours that took me a year to find all the holes, (there were 3) and get them fixed.
All were near the wiper arm, under the panels that are painted the same color as your car.
Be blessed.

Could be a leaky heater core. Do your windows ever fog over from the inside? ever catch steam coming out of the vents? does the moisture have an aroma of antifreeze? if so it is probably your heater core. If it is fresh water I would look at a windshield or possibly a door/window 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.

The floor behind my passanger seat is always wet. There is not a sweet smell and the water is not sticky. It actually has a slight foul odor, I think it is from the carpet being we so long. I it can'


check under drivers side carpet under fuel pedal, there should be a small black hose which is supposed to run through a hole in the floor to the outside. This is a condensation drain tube. If it is not draining it will follow channels in floor to the back drv side floor well.

The floor on the front passenger side is staying soaking wet with water the water is not dripping down on floor


Suspect leaking AC condensate drain line, unless it smells like anti-freeze, in which case its the heater core.

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!

Water is dripping from outer heater unit and soaking passanger side of front carpet.


There are two causes of fluid dripping from the heater core/ac evaporator housing. First, if it is running inside the vehicle and getting the carpet wet as described then it is most likely a bad heater core leaking antifreeze into the cab. Secondly, if it is dripping outside only when the a/c or defroster is running then it is the normal expulsion of condensation and is harmless.

2007 Civic EX...found the carpet wet...I dried this out and after rain, it is wet again. It is not the slanted part behingd the brake pedal. It is the flat part of the floor...driver's side.


Sometimes tough to find. If it only gets wet when driving, the problem could be in the floor pan...possibly a rubber stopper missing. If it happens when it rains without driving, may be in a door seal or coming thru the windshield gasket. Water leaks also can come in on one side and follow other objects then drip somewhere else, (because of surface tension). You can take a water hose and wet one section at a time to try and narrow down the source of the leak. Has the car had body work done? If so, look at the repaired area. Look at rubber seals around the doors and windows. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!

Wet rear floor


Have you by any chance jacked up the passenger side, or got vehicle on a hoist to make sure there isn't any plugs on the underside that may have fell out? They could be round or oval metal or rubber plugs, probably in that area.
