Air conditoner leaks water on the passenger side floor 2004 civic

When I drive the car with ac on there is a drip on the passenger side floor of my 2004 honda civic. I have tried to remove the plastic piece under the glove box to take a look but I cant get it off and I dont really know what I am looking for. Could the drain be plugged and how would I find out if this is the problem.
Thanks

The ac case has a condensation drain, it is under the car on the passenger side on the bottom of engine firewall, u will need to crawl under the car to clear it, use a peice of coat hanger about 6 inches long to clear the drain pipe, if you are unable to clear it you may have leaf debris in the ac case (common cause) and will need to remove the blower motor to clear the drain and leaf debris out of the ac case, the blower motor is on the passenger side behind and below the glove box, by removing the motor you will be able to clean out the ac air box and the drain which is at the bottom of the case near the blower motor.

2006 tirbeca when heater is on only blows hot air on drivers side, But when AC is on blowws cool air on passengers side. also water dripping on passenger side when AC is on


Problem with driver's side blend air door. Water on the floor is a sign of a clogged condensate drain tube. Do a search for how to clean a car condensate tube.

Could be excessive water in the heater ac box. If it is oily, your heater core may be leaking.
When the ac is on you should see water dripping onto the ground under the passenger side floor.

Wet floors in my 2004 handa civic LX


AC drain pipe would be the first place to get fixed. Compressed Air into the AC drain pipe should dislodge any blockage.
If your windows fog up when the heater is on it could still be the ac drain pipe as the water sits on top of the heater and then turns to steam when you try to heat up the heating .
A heater core is an extremely expensive repair as it is labour intensive repair

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 drips onto carpet on passengers side front foot area. Can be seen dripping from plastic air ducting above foot area. how to figure out how its getting in. Have replaced windshield.


You can only have 2 issues dripping water onto the passenger floor board. First being a clogged drip line for the ac evaporator. The other is a leaking heater core. Figuring out which one is the issue is fairly easy.

If your vehicle has anti freeze in it when you turn the defrosters on it will smell sweet. If it does you have a leaking heater core. If it does not then the drip line is clogged.

To clear the drip line get under the vehicle and snake the drip line on the firewall. It usually is a 90 degree rubber or plastic piece on the passenger side about a third of the way up the firewall. A leaking heater core means it has to be replaced and not really a job for someone that is not exsperienced.

I own a 2004 Suzuki Forenza and have noticed that water drips on the carpet when I run the AC or when it rains. We've already taken apart the drain and confirmed that the leak is not from the drain under...


You are exactly correct. There is a drain on the bottom of the evaporator case. Probably need to place the car on ramps or jackstands to get underthere and clean it out. If you don't feel you can do that safely go to a machanic and tell him what you need done. The drain is on the passengers side down by the front floor. Most times it's out side in the engine compartment, but some have a small hose you can get to inside.

2005 Chrysler Pacifica-Air conditioning leak


The 05/04 Pacifica did not come with an elbow tube on the drain line for the AC drip pan. As you drive, the air flow into the tube pushes the condensate water back into the pan which is inside above the passenger floor board, the drain line is under the hood on the firewall. I spoke with the parts guy at the local Chrysler dealer, he sold me a drain tube for the 06 (~$10) and I installed it, wasn't too hard to do from the top if the engine is cold. The elbow slips on over the drain tube. Make sure to point the tube down. It only took one trip to start seeing water drip out of the tube and the floorboard started to dry up and almost three years later, the floorboard is still dry.
