    I have noticed a mist when the AC is running. It just puzzled me with the leakage being water and not the color or smell of coolant.

Water on the floor indicates a heater core leak. You may also find a mist coming from the inside of the car when you run the heat and or AC. If this is the case, have your heater core checked out. Best of luck.

    There could be several reasons for this. The coolant concentration could be low (too much water to coolant ratio) or it could be so faint once it passes through the insulation and carpeting to get to the floorboard you wouldn't notice a smell at all.

I have a 2004 4runner and it has a water sloshing sound coming from passenger side dash And the floor id soaked on passenger side. What is cauding this, just started today.

there is obviously a water leak . does vehicle have sunroof ? if so make sure the drainage pipe's are clear , one out let in each corner of tray when sunroof open are clearly visable, to test carefully pour some water down the pipe outlets and check for the water draining to the floor usually around the wheel arch's , very common for these to get block by road debris , mud etc so water can't escape quick enough , also remove the A pillar trim and check that the drain pipe is still connected to the outlet from sunroof

Front passenger side floor is soaking wet.

Sounds like the a/c drain is clogged up you need to look on the firewall near the bottom behind engine pull drain stop of and clean it out and see if that takes care of your problem .

Water passenger footwell

Water in the passenger foot well, or coolant? Press a paper towel to the floor and see if the water is green. If so, then you have a leaking heater core. A heater core is pretty cheap, but the labor or installing one is pretty intense.

If it's just water then do you notice this more after it rains? If so, then it could mean the drainage system for your cowl is clogged and is causing it to back up into the vehicle.

Why is the floorboard on passenger side wet? It's a 2003 gmc Yukon . We've had the AC tube blown and drained. Wat else could it be?

It is a good chance it is anti freeze from a leaking heater core. See if it smells like coolant. If so you can pull the coolant lines off the heater core in the engine bay and put them together to bypass it until it is fixed

Water on passenger side floor Where is the drain located

Is it water or is it antifreeze? If it is antifreeze you more than likely have a bad heater core that is leaking the antifreeze onto the floor of the car. If you just spilled some water and now need to get it out use a wet/dry vac and vac out the excess or soak it up with towels and let the carpet dry out. There is no "drain valve" or any thing like that to open up.

Water on passenger floor /water leak

So little information to work with...

You say WATER ???.... OK Then Water it is..

Evaporator has a drain tube that carries away the excess water that forms when the ac is operative After several years it's not uncommon for this drain tube to get plugged up

Look under the vehicle for a drain tube, A Black Rubber tube and clean it out with Caned air Using all the proper safety equipment.

Hope this tip helps.

Water leaks into right side floor board during a blowing rain?

My 06 was leaking during rain also. It turned out to be the sunroof. There are two drain tubes in the front of the sunroof that run the water down the corners to the ground and two drain tubes that drain water out the back corners. The water would seep around the glass, which is expected, but both of the tubes on the front of mine were plugged, and the water would overflow behind the dash and fill my floorboards. If my H3 was leaning to the left during a storm then the drivers side would be full of water. If leaning right, then the passenger side. I had to open sunroof and blow compressed air into the drain holes to clear them, but be careful, too much air will separate tubes from sunroof and then you will have to remove the inside paneling around sunroof to get to tubes and reconnect. You may only have one side plugged. you can test it by opening sunroof and pour a little water in the small catch pan in the front of the sunroof and see if it drains as expected (to the ground under the firewall on left AND right side). You can see the holes in each corner of catch pan to drain the water. Plug one with your finger, then the other to find the plugged side. Good luck!! Hope this helps!!

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.
