SOURCE: Leak into passenger footwell (LHS) on Renault Scenic RX4

It sounds like you may have a blocked drain in the evaporator box. This is where the heater core and evaporator are located.

If you look under the vehicle about where the heater is located, you should see a small tube sticking down ( plastic or rubber ) this should be he drain.

You can squeese the tube open and see if it will drain, If not it may be clogged up with dirt and debris that may require the box to be removed and cleaned.

Check the air inlet, usually located in front of the windsheild, just under the wipers for debris. Keep this area clear. If it has a lot of leaves or other things around it, it can cause water to build up and flood the evaporator box, as well as get down inside.

You may need to take this to a shop that can put it on a lift and get at the drain from the underside, they may be able to clear it without too much troble

SOURCE: water in the rear passenger footwell

Hi I've the same problem on a C230 kompressor, unlikely to be front window. I've been looking into it and there is water outlets under the car maybe a blockage or a loose pipe maybe? I'll be jacking her up tomorrow.

Water in footwell passenger


yes the evaporator drain is plugged on the firewall side is a tube about 1/2 inch in diameter If you have compressed air just blowing air up the hose usually unplugs it. no air then use a coat hanger or wooden dowel being careful not to force it into the a/c core.

I have water in the back footwell of my 520 bmw


IT is possible that a rubber bung has gone missing and is letting in water or if you lift up the back seat the fuel pump access panel may have come loose, thats where they are on the 3 series so i could be wrong .

Leaks antifreeze could it be the heater core?


That depends on whether or not you also notice some leakage into the passenger compartment footwells. If the heater core has failed, the coolant tends to fill the front footwells, particularly on the passenger side.

One thing that I have seen multiple times, though, is the water pump tends to leak, particularly if it is the original pump. They have a high pattern failure rate.

Leaks on inside Toyota Corrolla on the passenger side


It could be water condensing from the A/C and dripping onto the passenger rug. Check under the passenger side dashboard, above the footwell, for the drain pipe from the A/C. If it's loose the water may leak into the footwell when the A/C is running. Should be reasonably easy to fix.
