2000 JAGUAR S-TYPE. CLEAR/CLEAN WATER, NO SMELLS LEAKING FROM UNDER DASH ONTO FRONT PASSENGER FLOORBOARD. I SUSPECT THAT THE A/C EVAPORATOR DRAIN IS CLOGGED AND NOT ALLOWING THE A/C CONDENSATION TO PROPERLY DRAIN TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE VEHICLE. WHERE IS THE DRAIN LOCATED? HOW DO I ACCESS/FIND IT TO BE ABLE TO BLOW IT OUT WITH AN AIRHOSE/GUN? THANK YOU.

Your drain hose is under towards the bottom of the car, up against the firewall. You may be able to blow it out from the cowl. You may just have to do a fresh air service which is a special foam that kills the bacteria and such that builds on the evaporator from it sitting.

I had the same problem with a 1994 Taurus. Within the front fender was 10 years of pine needles and leaves blocking the drain backing the water up in and over the fire wall and into the front passenger seat floor. I took a LONG pair of needle nose pliers threw the passenger side door, and was able to remove enough debree. After pulling out out about 5 fist full's of yuck, 1 gallon a water that was stuck some where poured out flushing out the drain. I did the same on the drivers side. After that I had no problems with floods. I hope this helps. If not check your back door weather stripping if you have one. I have heard water leaking behind the passengers seatbelt and onto the floor from under the seat. Got to love Florida's rain season(s)
Check the fluid you are getting. Rub some between your fingers. If it smells like coolant and feels slimy, chances are its a bad heater core. If its clear, not much smell and feels like water, condensation from evaporator. That is usually a plugged drain tube, or drain tube has slipped off the catch pan. The A/C evaporator can be accessed without too much problem up under the passenger side dash, sometimes behind the glove box.....Mike
The drain hose is clogged, it is right in front of the passenger on the firewall, a little hose or hole coming through, it is clogged up with bugs, dirt, mud, whatever, It will flood the car fast. get a wire or a hook and clean it out. Hope this helps.
You may have a drain issue in the window channel, I f the widow is sealed correctly and the that is not the issue the then move to the drainage from the duct system the widow and air intake for the interior of the car has to be clear of foriegn matters. or the drain tube for that may be plugged
If on the passenger side when the air conditioning has been running, most likely a clogged air conditioning drain hose. You can located it by reaching under the dash in the passenger foot well. I have cleaned mine by removing the end of the hose from the firewall grommet and inserting a wire in the hose to clear the clog, then used a shop vac to **** out the debris through the hose. I did this several times. Take a container to catch the water as once you clear the clog the water will come running out all over your head.
Is the leaking liquid antifreeze or clear water? Anti freeze is slimy. Ck your AC drain . its under the blower housinfg under the hood on the fire wall. The drain is easier to seeb from below looking yp. Squeeze it open and make sure it's clear. Good luck -Ned_
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.
heated water goes to your heater core under your dash..though you shouldnt be hearing it usually..be sure water level is up at radiator overflow reservoir and pay attention in cabin of any sweet smell of coolant indicating a failing /leaking heater core....look for damp carpet on passenger front area if suspicious
