SOURCE: Water keeps filling up under passenger seat in rear of car

My 2001 passat did the same thing. my leak was coming from the door panel. Open your door and use a water hose to simulate rain water running against your window. Water should run into door and drain out of several drain holes at the very bottom of your door. Check for water leaking from the bottom of your plastic door panel. The water runs down into the door and leaks through your inner door panel seal causing water to leak inside from the bottom of your door panel and run into the floorboard instead of draining out the water hole in the bottom of your door.

Are you sure the tank is not leaking ? Does the engine have to be running to find the water on the ground ? How about the water pump ?

My 2006 Mustang recently had water leaking beneath the dash on the passenger side. Water was about 1/2" deep. We had about 2 inches of rain during the night and I saw it running down as I drove off.

Most cars have a void underneath ( inside ) where the wiper arms come out. It catches rain water off the windshield so that it doesn't run down the firewall inside the engine compartment where there could be some electrical stuff. There will always be a drain hose to drain that area , which can become pluged up with leaves etc. over time. If you can look around under the car , and possibly in the wheel well , you might find the other end of that drain hose. A quick shot of water at the car wash , backwards up the hose , is often enough to clear the drain. Otherwise you might have to open it up and clean it out. If that area became full of water , there are lots of places where it could leak through the firewall and into the car.
Of course , if the water is actually engine coolant , then I would say your heater core has a leak.

There is a leak that is bad enough the coolant tank drains within minutes im wondering if it could be a hose because it drains in the middle though closer to the opposite side of the car

If it's a hose, it will leak fast, but don't count out other things like the radiator, water pump, head gasket, etc.

fill the system up with antifreeze and water or just water for diagnosis purposes, and use a pressure tester to force fluid out faster.

Maybe, if the leak is fast, you can look under the car to see exactly where it is coming from.

You say middle and opposite side of car (is this as you're sitting in the driver's seat?).

Where is the leak, now?

Leak inside car

the water drain for the ac system is clogged.
the inside coil gets cold and water drips off of it and needs to drain to the outside.
there should be a drain spout on the outside of the fire wall.
this small drain needs to be cleared.
let me know if this helps
thank you

this sounds like a clogged drain like you said. look underneath the vehicle on the passenger side for a little black rubber drain spout. if you park under trees alot, it is very common for these to plug up. when you locate it, have the a/c on for about 15 minutes so that there is condensation for it to drain. if there is nothing coming out, take a coat hanger and insert it into the spout and pull the junk out. do it until water comes out.

Water leaks into the vehicle on the front,

It could be a plain old fashioned leak around the windscreen - difficult to find but try sitting in the car while somebody plays a water hose over the windscreen.

It could also be a blocked drain in the ventilation system - fresh air is normally drawn in to a car via vents at the bottom of the windscreen. These vents normally lead to a "box" like structure where any water that enters the vents drops to the bottom and then drains away via a short hose that runs to somewhere underneath the car.
If the drain outlet or hose gets blocked (by leaves for example), it can cause the box to fill with water to the point where it can leak out in to the passenger area.

Hope this helps you find the problem.

Water leak on passenger side on 99 chevy s 10 not anterfreeze, leaks when not being driven

there is only one thing that leaks water there, that is the AC condensation drain, water forms as part of the AC cooling the evaporator core, this water must be drained away or it will flood onto passenger area, so there is a drain on the passenger side at bottom of firewall, will leak allot of water depending on how humid the air is.
