    Thanks for the fast reply. I already know the approximate location. I was wondering if you can be more specific? Do you have a diagram? Do I need to access the drain from below the vehicle? would it be more helpful to have it up on the lift? I just can't seem to locate the drain from under the hood or inside the passenger compartment. 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.

    To get to the drain it is way easier up on a lift. The drain tube goes down to the ground. Look close to the firewall up on the passenger side from under the car.

In my 2000 chevy Impala has a water leaks under dashboard onto passenger floor, only when it rains?


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)

I have a water leak under the dash on the passenger side. Is it the heater core or the condensation from the a/c not draining out under the car?


Hi,
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.

Water leaking under the dash


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.

Water leaking onto floor of front passenger side of vehicle


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.
