YES There is a DRAIN Located Directly UNDER A/C ? Heater BOX it is BLACK RUBBER and Nothing Special about it Just use a Screwdriver to Poke into it There is Something BLOCKING it So Work with it to UNCLOG it. The Water in these Units Can Get REALY STINKY so BE PREPAIRED.
Im Pretty Sure that this Solves that PROBLEM. Have A Good Day

I have a 2001 WJ Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. At times when cornering, there is the sound of water, or other liquid sloshing around in the dash in front of the passenger seat. Could this be accumulated ...


ac units are very well sealed and any water or liquid should normally be drained out of a tube located outside of firewall make sure that drain is cleared,heater core can also make this noise especially when engine coolant is low.

AC water leaks inside car, 2002 mercury sable


You probably have two different issues here.
The water on the floor is usually caused by a drain tube being stopped up. The tube is supposed to let the water drain out of the car and onto the ground. It should be on the bottom of the firewall or below the floor.
You would need to have the computer scanned for trouble codes to find out why the check engine light is coming on.

Recently every time i drive my 1991 pathfinder and take a corner water just sloshes out onto the passenger side floor. any idea what causes the water?


the most common reason for this is the ac drain is plugged and water is filling up inside the heater box, you will need to locate the drain from under the truck on the pass/side and blow air into it or use a hanger to clear, you will see water pour out, this is a small hole sometimes it will have a rubber end on it with hole in the middle, clear opening and drain box, this is common, when ac is on you should see water dripping out on the ground from pass/side, it comes out through the firewall . good day.

Have a 2005 ford focus and water is leaking onto the passenger floor board badly. not when its raining onnly with ac on. the drain is not plugged, tried wire and blow gun to clear drain. so much...


If the drain is not plugged, how is water getting on the floor??? crack in housing?? no tricks, find out where exactly water is getting to floor. If water is on floor, but not coming out of the drain, it may be cracked or a seal is not in place.

Water on floor behind front passenger seat


drill a hole through the floor as a quick fix ,if it gets in let it out ,then check for the leak ,try under the firewall where the AC drain pipe is ,it could be the same pipe for drain water coming in from air intake vents

Water sloshing around in the vent, leaking onto passenge floor.


There should also be a drain tube or hole below duct work on outside of firewall or maybe even lower.

It sounds like you may have a blocked drain in the evaporator box. This is where the heater core and evaporator are located.

If you look under the vehicle about where the heater is located, you should see a small tube sticking down ( plastic or rubber ) this should be he drain.

You can squeese the tube open and see if it will drain, If not it may be clogged up with dirt and debris that may require the box to be removed and cleaned.

Check the air inlet, usually located in front of the windsheild, just under the wipers for debris. Keep this area clear. If it has a lot of leaves or other things around it, it can cause water to build up and flood the evaporator box, as well as get down inside.

You may need to take this to a shop that can put it on a lift and get at the drain from the underside, they may be able to clear it without too much troble

I have a stron mildew smell in my car and discovered water on the passenger seat under the seat and on the back floor. I had found this before and thought something must have spilled. Now after driving...


take the cover off of the door behind the outside mirror. if there is a hole where the cable goes through.. seal it was some type of elastic caulk such as silicone. water comes in around this when it rains but generally just runs down the door post and onto the carpet
