the drain pipe is blocked on the bootom of the heater unit is the AC condenstae drain and it runs out through the firewall in most vehicles ,if you not sure then ask a local mechanic to have a look and i doubt if they wilkl even charge you as its such a simple job ,dead algae is the main culprit i suspect or a damaged pipe end??

SOURCE: scion xa water gets into spare tire well during rain. a lot of it. gaskets look ok.

Best advice from i ever got from an old mariner was if the water gets in drill a hole and let it out ,then worry about it later .When i lived in the uk many years ago and the older cars then had rubber window screen seals it was common to get water leaks in the front footwells which caused rust and eventually the car to fail the inspection for corrosion in the floor so i used to drill a 3/8th hole either side of the respective floorpan by the seal so if the car was parked in the road pointing in one direction the water would tun out and when car moved and parked on the other side of the road it could run out that side ,Yes i know iam ancient and none of these things i done are relevant now and are frowned upon as you have to fit new parts but in my time i repaired things and welding up cars was everyday and stopping them from rotting afterwards was part of that.Including opening the rubber bung in the boot to let the water out and if no rubber bung drilling a hole .But then iam only a dinasaur now so ignore me

Why is water dripping from firewall on both driver and passenger sides

If it is inside the car it may be the heater core. Is it coolant? You can check by the smell and you could also use a pice of white printer paper to see its color. Could also be a bad seal on the doors or condensation from the ac.

Front right floor always wet

Ac condensation could be building up and dripping in cab.If so under car on passenger side were floor board meets firewall should be a small hose or maybe even just a hole where water to drip. First i use like a coat hanger to clean out.

My 1996 pontiac grand am is leaking water from under the car by the front passenger wheel. What would be wrong with my car

Is it water or is it engine coolant? Does it smell sweet ... have a color to it ... probably engine coolant. If it is clear water with no smell, it is probably AC condensate. Typically, this is where condensate drips, as the AC is located on the passenger side.

Thanks for your interest in

Water is leaking inside the car, what could this be?

Leaking inside on the passenger side floor could be the heater core(you should smell anti freeze) or the a/c condenser drain hose where the water collected on the condenser goes is stopped up. It's supposed to drip under the car. You may can unstop the hose by blowing through it from under the car if you can find it. If that doesn't work you have to access it from inside the car under the dash. The same goes for the heater core.

The passenger side floorboard gets wet =

is it only when the ac is on? there is a pan under the ac unit that has a hole in it to allow the condensation to empty. if that hole gets plugged it could cause the condensation to build up and back into the inside of that car. i unplugged mine and floor stayed dry

Can condensation collect causing a swish sound?

Yes it can,there is a drain for the ac box,on the outside under the firewall,that is stopped up,use a small weak wire to unclog it or air pressure.

Water under front passenger seat where is it coming from

Check the drain of A/C condensator, its possible that is clogged; check underdash passenger side.

Good luck.

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...

There is water on passenger side front and rear

There is a rubber drain hose that should be attached to the bottom of the cooling/ blower unit on the passenger side of the car underneath the dash. This hose drains the condensation from the cooling unit. the hose may have gotten disconnected or it may be clogged up. I have had cases where a dirt dobber built a nest up inside the hose and clogged it up. Check this hose it may be the cause of the water puddling up in your car.

Car has a skunk like smell and AC question

Listen isn't a skunk! My elantra smells like a skunk too and I am sure I didn't hit one. I think that it might be my battery; since battery acid and skunk smell are chemically the same. This is what I am checking next.
