It is most likely coming from a dried up or improperly installed window seal at the bottom of the windshield (under the wiper trim)

Take the trim off and caulk yourself - or have the entire seal replaced.

    one thing i forgot to mention was to look at the weatherstripping of the blower motor (under the same plastic trim) If it is dryrotted or improperly installed - it will leak in through the blower motor housing, and may cause further problems with your HVAC down the road.

    Do you have a sunroof? there is a drain that run down the passenger A-Pillar - if it is clogged or has come loose at the sunroof - the water will come in there.

    The HVAC system draws outside air from the cowl area, which has drains.
    When these drains become clogged with debris, car wash water/ heavy
    rain can run into the pass. compartment through the HVAC passage. Pull
    the covers off the cowl and clean out the drains.

Why do I have cold ac on driver side and stale air on passenger side. what could itbe? and notice water and antifreeze on passenger side floor board well at least that what it smells like like to me.


antifreeze anywhere inside the cabin is a sign of a leaking heater core. Rub the liquid between two fingers. If it feels oily, it's coolant.

I have water on the passenger side of a '05 jeep liberty live in florida, no rain A/C on all the time


Possible that your drain hose is plugged up and backing up and not draining properly. Happened to me . Fire ants got in hose to get water and plugged it up water dripped in floor board. Just a suggestion

Can i drive my 2010 jeep liberty with a leaking heater core?


The heater uses the coolant (read antifreeze and water) from the engine to get hot. If it runs low enough, by say leaking out of the heater core, your engine will overheat and that can be bad for it and expensive to fix.
Although most antifreeze is poisonous, (don't drink it) if you keep your window open the fumes will not hurt you. That being said, it will stain the carpet, make the inside of the car smelly, leave a puddle on the floor, cause the floor boards to rust(slowly) and mainly be annoying.
Since we are starting into summer you can get by for awhile by just adding water to the coolant tank under the hood. Make sure you do this when the engine is not hot. Engine coolant can give you severe burns if you take the cap off when the engine is hot.
So, about an hour after you get home from work go and check the engine coolant level. If you can hold onto the radiator hose then it is cool enough to add some more water. If you add more water then leaks out you can drive the jeep.
FYI The leak will get worse over time.

2005 Jeep Liberty Washer Fluid - Where is the water-line that leads from the water reservoir in the hood to the rear wipers?


It may seem a strange question but does the wetness on the front passenger floor smell of anything. Water has no particular smell washer fluid does. The hose will probably come through the bulkhead between you and the engine and run under the carpet to the back of the car. Try using the washers before moving the car. See if it is leaking under the car.

Water leak on the passanger side of a 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport


The first place I would look is the floor board caps. Make sure one or more of them aren't pushed up, allowing water to enter the cabin. Also, because your defroster is probably on while it's raining, make sure the A/C drain plug isn't clogged. It's a small rubber fiting that sticks out from inside the firewall, behind the engine. Simply pull it out and clean it. When you pull it out, you might be surprised to see water coming out of the hole!

Just a couple things to check. I hope this helps! :)

Wet floor passanger side


Air conditioning drain stopped up with debris (leaves,pine straw,sticks). Small tube sticking out from firewall with rubber elbow pointing down behind engine, passenger side. If elbow missing air will cause water to back up into vehicle. Another possibility, if your coolant is low heater core leaking.

Water leaking onto floor of front passenger side of vehicle


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.
