U need to crawl under the car and clear the ac condensate drain, it is a rubber pipe on the passenger side that sticks out of the bottom of the engine firewall, they get clogged and water builds up in the ac and this problem happens.

My 2005 Dodge Stratus has water getting under the passenger side mi seat somehow


could be coming from a/c condenser there is a drain hose that is supposed to extend through passenger floor board and allow condenser to drain water while a/c is running. Often times someone has done some work and either knocked hose off or accidentally rerouted it under passenger side carpet and gravity takes water down by seat. hope this helps

What can cause floor in the back, (behind the front passenger seat) to be soaked with water (& I mean SOAKED) ?


I assume there are no leaks in the windows or sunroof.
One probable cause, is the Air Conditioning unit. On all cars there is a drain line for the AC unit. As a unit runs, it produces condensation. (Just as a bottle of cold water produces condensation in a warm, humid area). That water has to go somewhere, so there is a drain at the bottom of the system. That drain (which comes out under the car, usually centered under the dashboard area), can become clogged or pinched and leave the water to accumulate in the system base, (again inside the car, under the dash). When this happens, the water will seep under the carpet and find the lowest area, which in this case, is the floorboard in the back seat area.

Litters of water accumulating in the foot well of the rear passenger side seats which can soak your feet. There is dampness in front and other side. We have no idea of where this water is coming in from....


Depends on where the water is coming from. The 2 most often causes of water buildup is either the heater core is leaking or the AC condensate drain tube is blocked. If the heater core was leaking, you'd smell antifreeze or see steam coming from the vents while driving. The AC condensate drain tube lets condensation water to drip overboard from the housing. This tube is on the bottom of the AC case on the firewall side under the hood. Sometimes you need only pinch it to open it to drain out the water buildup..

Found what i think is water under driver seat mat and passenger seat mat.why?


Possible that the drain of the AC from the drain hose under the dash has leaked or the hose has come off that had caused this issue.
Look on the underside of the evaporator tank where the condensation of the water from the cooling pipes collects. This has to drain by a hose to the bottom of the floor of the car. This must have come or displaced.
Make sure that the drain also is not choked or clogged.

2002 camry 4 cyc - water in the ac condenser does not drain. Can it be unplugged? How to I get to the condenser?


Hello. Welcome to FixYa. Please allow us to assist you.

The AC condensate drain is accessible from the passenger side of the car. Move the front pass seat back, and pull down the carpeting next to the console and under the dash. You are looking for a black rubber hose, that comes from the bottom of a black plastic box, and then exits thru the firewall. Having a container (a coffee can, or something similar), remove the black hose form the plastic box, and catch the trapped water. After the water stops draining, pull the black rubber hose towards you, and flush out the blockage with a stream of water. Refit the hose and you will be good to go.

Thanks for choosing FIxYa for assistance today.
A 4 thumbs rating would be greatly appreciated.

I have water leaking in under the front driver side seat.


do you have dual air control or a seperate set of vents for the rear passengers if so look under the seat to see if there is a tube that runs under the seat if so check to make sure it hasnt come loose.

When raining a have water dripping into the passenger seat well


This problem is rare. Try to check if the water really is coming from the outside because its possible that the water is coming from the air conditioning unit's condenser.

To isolate the problem, have someone seat in the passenger seat. Wash your car. Ask the person inside the car if he/she sees or feels any water droplets. If the passenger doesn't see or feel any drops. Its possible that water is coming from the condenser unit of your A/C. You need to have your condenser cleaned if this happens.

This happened to me as well, i thought that my car had some sort of leak from the outside. Turns out that it was only the condenser. I had it cleaned and viola. No more water drops

Wet carpet under front Passenger seat


You have drain blockage in the condesor case itself. There is a small tube that will drain the condensor case, the big black plastic case that contains most of your a/c system inside the car. This case collects moisture and that must drain normally from the case drain to the outside of your car onto the ground.. If this drain is plugged, you will have leakage on to the floor. If the moisture is allowed to remain in the carpet, mildew will set in and then you will have to replace the carpet.
