Clear out the drain tube. May be able to do it with a coat hanger, or get someone to blow it out with some shop air.

Are you in an Area with high Humidity, because if so that is your problem right there the humidity from outside comes in through your car which causes it not to drain properly. My friend and I experienced the same thing in his VW going down to the beach a few weeks ago, the drastic change in heat and humidity caused it to leak all over our feet. And we read up that it actually draining like that is a good thing.

Toyota 2008 highlander water on rear center passenger floor. A/C drain outside passenger side draining.Seems to puddle on rear floor when A/C is on high and recirculating fresh air. Any clue? problem?

For water to pool on the floor with AC on should indicate a plugged evap drain tube. The tube will have to be inspected for kinks and debris lodged in it. It may be draining some of the water but not enough.

Are you sure that it is coolant. Puddles form under vehicles where the AC drain is under the car. Check that the puddle is actually coolant and not water from the ac evaporator core.

Puddle of water on driver side floor

The condensate drain hose is off, this happened on our 03 Vibe. After putting the hose back on I removed the seats and carpeting to dry up the mess. If the hose is no off, it is plugged up, try a coat hanger wire to push out any debrie.

Where are the drains in my 2000 beetle ? I have a puddle of water under passenger seat !

Drill a 3/8 th hole through the floor at the lowest point then look for the water leak ,is the AC drain pipe clear as this is the most obvious point of entry and the AC condensate will run into car if this pipe is blocked

My car is leaking a puddle of water, i have been using the a/c in this hot it normal for the a/c to make the car have a puddle of water after the car is turned off?

Yes this is completely normal. What it is doing is condensing the moisture in the air. When this happens you have mositure build up in the cars ac system. This is needed to be drained off and is done so bay a drainage line that comes out of the fire wall of the car and allows it to drain underneath. The more the ac is used the more moisture you get.

Water on passenger floor...

Two things: If there is a stickiness or sweet smell to the water, your heater core may be leaking.
If this is just a summer thing, your a/c evaporator drain tube my be blocked/clogged or leaking inside the vehicle.

I just read in the 2009 Consumer Report Best and Worst Cars

The main cooling issue that is for the 05 cooper is the Thermostat gaskets leak. MINI has updated the part but has not issued a bulletin or recall. Check under your car often and make sure there is not a puddle of coolant. They just updated the part within the last 3 months, so it is still pretty new. The old gasket is a white color and the new one is a semi clear. The only thing that you can do is be on the look out for coolant leaking on the floor in the middle or towards the drivers side of the engine bay, Almost positive that MINI will not allow you to replace a part under warranty unless your thermostat is leaking. Hope that helps answer your question
