Water leaking - Kia Sorento 2.5 Diesel

My Sorento 2.5l, Diesel, has a water leakage. This is on the passenger side. I took a look and it looks like there is a small black rubber pipe connection in 90 degrees where the water is droping.
Does anybody have an idea how to solve it ?
Thanks and best regards

    I think it is, because yesterday was a little hot here, and I turned on the A/C. It is exactly where it is from, a rubber pipe, I tried to find some pipe to connect in this rubber, but I couldn't find.

    I will pay attention in that, and let you know if this problem continues.

    Thank you very much and best regards.

There is a small black rubber pipe that is directly connected to the airconditioning system, which is usually placed on the passenger side of the vehicle. This normally leaks water when your A/C is switched off after a drive, or while it is in operation during a hot day.

If you identify this pipe as the one I have described above, there is no need to worry about the water leak.

Hope this helps.

2003 kia sorento leaking antifreeze after new radiator

You will want to taste the leak (or get someone else to do so) and make sure it is not water.
Antifreeze has a very sweet taste.
You should only need one drop, and be sure to rinse your mouth out really well afterwards.
Whenever a radiator is replaced, the hoses attached to it can also begin to leak, because the rubber hardens with age, and can be harder to seal again.
I prefer a stainless steel band clamp, not the original equipment.
A good flashlight would be a help as you look for the problem.
Be sure to check the heater hoses, and the other hoses that carry coolant, as any of them could be leaking, due to "being disturbed" or due to the possible higher pressure the new radiator is giving the cooling system.
Be blessed.

Water leaking on passenger side of kia

If the water is clear and has no antifreeze smell, then its a blocked condensation drain from the AC. Most likely. You should be able to clean it out quite easy. It will be in front of the passenger side feet area. You may be able to see it from under the hood, or you may have to go from under the car.
Look for a crinkly tube sticking down or it may be a 2- 3 inch downturned L shape tube on the firewall. A pipe cleaner from any tobacco shop will do the job. Just poke it through to clean out. Watch out for water in the eye.

If the water is greenish or orangeish, and feels sticky then you have a heater core leak and will need to replace the heater core.

Everytime I add coolant or water it instantly leaks bach out under the SUV. It trickles down the oil pan to the ground. Is this leaking from the water pump?

betya booties is is the water pump.try adding water while engine is running ,if the rate of leakage seems less ,it is definately the water pump. iwould take it to a radiator repair shop andthey will check for sure i doubt they will charge you as it only takes aminute , good luck.
