I had the exact same problem last year on my 04 Sebring. I took it to the dealership and found that the a/c was draining into the car, instead of running to the outside. My mechanic said that chrysler knew of this problem but was not recalling it. (The number of vehicles it happened to wasn't enough to warrant a recall) Anyway, all he had to do was replace a part of the a/c draining unit. I will try to find the service invoice for a more specific solution. But if I were you, I would just contact your local chrysler dealership and ask the service department. Like I said my mechanic knew right away. He has a Sebring as well and replaced the defective part for a "just in case" situation. I pulled up the carpeting and saw how much damage was actually done just because of this defective part. It was horrible. My mechanic suggested parking the car on an incline (with the carpeting pulled up) and the water would pool near the firewall. I did this and kept checking every 10 minutes. I would soak it up, come back and soak up more water. It was amazing how much water was sitting in the carpeting. Obviously,the carpeting has to be dried out or it will mold. Mine was leaking for such a long time that I had to have the carpeting replaced. It was exspensive, but I didn't want further problems with mold. I haven't had any problems since. Good luck! I hope I was a little helpful.

Inside under the dash passenger side. A rodent may have brought in debris. Continue cleaning a few more times before attempting to remove the evaporator box. Gently use a coat hanger or flexible wire to unplug hose but do not puncture the evaporator causing freon leak and requiring replacement.

Yes, the evaporator is inside the car, because that way you get the maximum cooling.
But that evaporator acts as a dehumidifier and drips water. Blowing it out just blew the seeds and leaves around, but they will aways settle back to the bottom eventually. Better is you vacuum them out instead of blowing them in.

Water on floor passenger side after it rains and after air has been running 2000 grand prix

Ac hose leak?
leaking heater core?

Hint: it leaks when it RAINS

If it were related to the heater core or the AC drain, it would be leaking when it is not raining also, so those diagnoses are not logical.

The grand prix has a long history of floor leaks from seal failures around the air intake under the windshield cowling, where RAIN water runs in.

Water leaking from ac on passenger side front floor board on 2006 Dodge Stratus.

Look for an evaporator drain that is clogged. You'll find it on the firewall possibly on the underside of the car. It will look like a hose that is coming out of the car and is connected to nothing. You can try sticking a coat hanger gently in the hose to try and dislodge whatever is blocking it, usually leaves.

When my air condotioner is on there is some kind of mist blowing out of the vents and there is water pouring out onto bothe the driver's and passenger floor when taken turns.

You will need to have the heater/ac box drain hole cleaned out,this drain is located on the firewall coming from the heaterbox, you should see a small hose sticking out of firewall on the pass/side,near the bottom, blow air into it and water will pour out or use a coat hanger and slide into drain hole gentle and water will run out.

Rain water leaking from under glove box, heater area, is not antifreeqe, iam sure it is rain water

The evaporator drain might be clogged. Get under the truck or open the hood and look for a rubber nipple coming out of the firewall on the passengers side. Try sticking something in this hole to release whatever might be stuck in there, usually leaves or sediment. Be careful, don't go crazy pocking something in there. The evaporator core might be near the drain hole, you don't want to poke a hole in it.

2005 chrysler sebring sedan water on inside of car

There is a rubber hose sticking out of the firewall on the lower passenger side, under the hood. With the A/C running you should see water dripping out of it, or if you let the car run for a few minutes notice a puddle on the ground. If you don't see water, the hose is probably plugged. Sometimes squeezing it a few times will work the crud inside it loose and water should start coming out. Same deal for the back. You'll have to crawl under the vehicle and look where the A/C lines go into the vehicle(it will be on the left or right side in the rear). There should be another rubber drain hose there. Hope this helps...

Water leak inside the car

Whats causing this is that the drain hose for the evaporator is clogged and overflowing into the car. what has to be done is get under the car and find the drain hose, which is going to be on the passengers side of the car by the firewall, and get either compressed air and blow into the hose to try to free the blockage
