Look under the hood for your a'c lines going thru the firewall(aluminum in color) Somewhere below these will be a black rubber or plastic tube, you can probe the tube with a small wire to clear the obstruction. Most shope will charge about 35-50$ if you cannot locate it.

Rain leaks

NO, it is most likely getting in through the cowl vent area under the wipers. Normally the water drains out the inner fender, but if its clogged with leaves and pine needles, it wont drain and will fill up past the cool air intake and get into the cabin. I would pull the cowl vent grille and make sure the drains are not clogged.

Park your car on a flat surface with adequate lighting, and engage the emergency brake. Then raise the car with a jack. Place jack stands below the frame near the front wheels for added security.

  • 2 Cut about 1 foot of metal wire and form a hook at one of the ends. The hook will be used to grab hold of any clog in the tube.
  • 3 Go underneath the engine and locate the AC drain tube, which is a small rubber hose. Detach the tube from the engine so that you have access to the inside, where the clog will be located.
  • 4 Insert the wire, hook first, into the AC drain tube. Do not force the wire, but twist, push and pull the wire within the drain tube until you are able to remove the clog.
  • 5 Allow water to drain from the tube after the clog has been removed. Reattach the drain tube to the engine. Move out from underneath the vehicle, then remove the jack stands and lower the vehicle back to the ground. Perform a test drive.

    There is water the fills the floor of the passenger side of the car when the air conditioner is running

    The AC condensation drain is clogged, when the AC is on water is condensed on the cold AC evaporator core (this part is what cools the incomming air), this water drains out the bottom of the heater/AC air duct, the drain is at the bottom of the firewall under the hood on the passenger side, run a coat hangar up into the drain to clear it.

    Water leaking into 2002 monte carlo floor. where are the drain holes in the rocker panel?

    there are none. you either have a bad heater core or your air conditioner drain hose is clogged. It should be draining above the shock on the passenger front side.

    If it is just water start with the AC, if it has coolant in it then its the heater core.

    Ac drain is blocked cannot locate the drain 1997

    The drain is just a small hose coming out of the firewall, right hand side, about 2 -3 inches long, they get clogged up with mud, bugs, you name it, and when the clog up, it's like Niagra falls in there. Check it out.

    Floorboards soaked with water from the AC Drain line

    actually the drain is clogged it somewhat accessible on the firewall behind the engine . the water fills upthe evaporator box and when you go around a corner it dumps on the floor if you remove the drain spout you blow some compressed air in the hole to clear it if it continues you may have to remove the evap and manually clean out the box .

    It seems that the drain for the ac is clogged. When we run ac for long trips our passenger side floorboard fills up with clear water

    You are going to have to slide under the car and look for the drain..........push something up into the drain.....just enough to clear it.
    Do not poke high up into the aluminum evaporator and puncture it.

    Water(not anti freeze) is entering the front pass floor (filling the foam up under the carpet) of my 96 Riv. It starts in the front and moves back filling the battery compartment under the rear pass seat....

    Your air conditioner evaporator condensate drain is blocked.
    The condensate draintube should carry this water out through the floorpan to the ground.
    Look for a kinked or blocked drain tube from under the A/C evap housing.

    There is water dripping on my foot when my foot is on the gas pedal this has just started what can this be?

    It could be that the drain that removes water when the a/c evaporator drips is plugged and it is backing up into the passenger compartment.

    If it happens when it rains it could be a leaky windshield or water leaking in through the cabin air filter.
