SOURCE: Water leaking - Kia Sorento 2.5 Diesel

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.

SOURCE: can't get passenger side marker light out on a 2007 kia spectra

There is one bolt on top of the radiator support and another in back. The assy fits into a pluug that keeps it aligned so it cam be tough to remove. Just wiggle it side to side while pulling and it'll slowly come out.

Are you looking to fix the bulb that is in the corner of the headlamp? You don't need to remove the head light for that. The is a black cap that screws off just beind it.

SOURCE: 2005 Kia Amanti; heater on driver side blowing cold

For those of you who may google this link and are looking for an solution, my local repair shop isolated my 2005 Amanti problem to a $2.78 plastic clip on the temperature blend door actuator rod linkage. It simply fatigued and eventually broke resulting in the actuator rod falling off the actuator door lever. The labor to isolate the problem and to replace the clip did amount to almost $170. Hope this helps those of you in the future.

SOURCE: water leaking on passenger side

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.

Where are the chassis drain plugs on a 2003 Pontiac bonneville? My car leaks in the trunk and onto the floor on the front passenger floor

Your trunk leak most likely is rubber seal that runs the perimeter of trunk when trunk lid is open. Leak on pass floor can be a combination of things. Heater core or if car has sunroof, there is drains that run down windshield posts. Carpet will be wet and sticky if heater core is leaking (not to mention coolant level low) If it's sunroof drain, car has to be put on a lift and drains blown out with compressed air.

Hiy, I have just purchased a 1999 Kia sportage off a private seller and the air conditioning on the passengers side is extremely noisy. Do i need to get this looked at or is it just because its an old car?

Check the seal on the windshield. If it is not properly sealed it will allow water to get into your blower motor which will make it very noisy. Look everything over and see if you can see where water might be getting in. Seal it up with an automotive grade silicone. Remove the blower motor and oil it up really good. If that does not work get on ebay and order a replacement.

Water was leaking inside on passengers side, now

HVAC drain tube was blocked and condensation could not drain to the outside of the vehicle

as a result the water pooled inside the HVAC case leaking on the inside and killing your blower motor and probably blower motor resistor

clear the drain, replace the blower and resistor and you'll be back in business

2005 Kia Sorento only blows hot and cold air on high. Is it a blower motor resistor and if it is where is it located?

If the blower moter only works on hi speed it is the blower motor resistor that is bad. The blower motor resistor is located under the passenger side of the dash next to the blower motor. It is not necessary to remove the blower motor to change the resistor.

Erratic control panel

This is the solution if your car sometimes has unexplained water on the passengers side floor after it rains and the Blower is working erratic.The solution lies under the large black bezel/cover below your windshield wipers. Under this bezel on the passengers side is a piece of weather stripping that has fallen off. You will see it right away. If you fix this and replace your blower motor and resistor your HVAC will work correctly again. I spent a year trying to figure this out.

Just remove the bezel and check the weather strip. You will be able to see where it was by the discoloration. It falls off by poor design and allows water to seep into your blower motor shorting out the resistor and if left unchecked will smoke the blower motor also. You want to add some silicon sealant and replace the weather strip to it's original position.
As far as the blower motor and resistor it is not all that difficult to replace. You will have to lie on your back on the passengers side to get at it. It's very uncomfortable.

Good Luck !!!
