It sounds like the heater core went out on the car, The heater core is located inside dash on the passenger side. It will leak more when the heater is turned on.

SOURCE: leak onto floorboard

there are basicaly only 2 things that can leak onto your floor boards the first is your cooling system. If its your cooling system the only part of your cooling system that comes inside your car is the heater core. The 2nd thing that does happen but is unlikely, is if you have a sun roof. There is a drain and a tube that goes down to the doors. if its clogged instead of going down to the doors, it will over flow and spill under the head liner and flow to the floor. But because your widows are getting wet also I would bet its your heater core.

In most cases Heater cores are pretty easy to replace. they are usually located behind the glove box, but can get more difficult depending on the make and modle. I would purchase a Chilton. You can get one at the part store. Dont get a Haines, they are often difficult to read and are not as easy to use. Also Honda's are notorious for A/C mold, but you can buy a kit that you put down the vents that kills it. You should be running the vent with just air not A/C to dry out the vents every once and a while that will help keep the mold down also. Hoda's and Toyota's vents are so well sealed that they are natural borne mold growers. The dealers also have some kind of mold removal thing they can do but as far as I know its the same as what you would buy at the part store. you may have to do it more than once, mold is not always easy to get rid of.

SOURCE: leak onto floorboard

Here is what all dealers do to find water leaks, we spray a fine mist of water on the car near where the water might be comming in with a spray nozzle, someone gets inside the car and look for the leak, there is no other way, and I have been doing this 30 years.

SOURCE: water leak passenger side in dodge caravan 2005 carpet soaked

look at the firewall on the engine side and you will see a small stub hose coming out on passenger side about even with the bottom of the heater box inside. that hose drains condensation from the ac...clear it out and you will have a dry floor. (unless heater core is leaking but you didn't mention any overheat or coolant loss so likely that's not a problem)

SOURCE: wet floor

If this has happened since you started using the A/C it is probably the drain tube for the A/C. They get plugged and usually someone has to go under the car with a coathanger and open the tube up.

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.

passenger side floor? There is a small tube that directs the condensation from the AC to the ground.If this tube has gotten plugged or moved the water would end up on the floor. Should be able to see this tube sticking out of the bottom of the heater /ac module.

2002 Honda Accord Wet Floor


most common problem is the a/c condensor tube is clogged and is under the car and needs to be cleared with compressed air. also the sunroof track has 4 drain tubes and the right front may be clogged or leaking. you can check that by pouring a cup of water down the right front drain tube in the sunroof track and see if water comes out by the right front wheel

2001 Accord EX - Front passenger side carpet is soaking wet


The drain on the a/c evaporator gets clogged, you have to raise the car on a lift, or get under the car, on the right side of the car under the fire wall you will see a black rubber hose ( about a 1/2 inch in size) pointing down, you will need to blow compressed air in the hose to clear the blockage.

Wet rear floorboard and vapor barrier question


The plastic barriers are absolutely essential to prevent water from draining onto the floor. In a 2004 Honda, they would be brittle/torn as a result of aging. The "professionals" who installed the remote start system (in the rear doors?) probably reduced the plastic to shreds and simply remove the remains.
