I had a pontiac that done the same thing. Mine ended up being the condinsation drain tube had broken and wa letting the condensation drain onto the passenger side carpet. This might also be you case. Also you might have to have the housing checked out for any kinds of cracking. If the gets any kinds of holes or cracks in it then it will result in the same problem.

2011 jeep cherokee. Water under driver side carpet. Heavy AC usage.


The evaporator coil drain is clogged. It will be a short tube under the car, passenger side, right under the firewall, and will have a crimped end. Push a wire up the hose to clear debris, and avoid parking the vehicle under trees (usually the cause for clogged evaporator drains).

AC draining into passenger side of cabin


if you have a sun roof check drain could cause water to leak inside also. sometimes a bad heater core can cause water to drain on the passenger side

WET CARPET ON DRIVER'S SIDE


Could be the drain for the ac is plugged up. Usually when this happens the passenger side floor gets wet, but it could be coming out on the driver's side when you take a right turn.
The drain should be on the bottom of the firewall near the floor, you should see water dripping onto the ground when the ac is on.

I have an 91 2-door integra. now thats its been raining a lot i hve been geting alot of water into my car. its only weting my back carpet and my trunk.


i have a 1992 acura integra ls and i had the same problem. it's most likely that from your sun roof there are two pipes that run towards the back to get rid of excess water through the underside of the wheel well. the rubber tubes over time pull out (no pun intended) and all that water that hits your sun roof drains into the back of your car. when you slow down all that water hits the carpet and creeps its way to the back seats. what you need to do is take off the panelling of the trunk and reattach the rubber tubes. you can use RTV to seal it up. it's worked for me and im pretty sure it'll work for you.

I have a 2002 Toyota prius. I notice there is a pool of water on the passenger side floor after driving the vehicle with the ac on for a while. How can I fix this myself?


Hello, and welcome to FixYa. Please allow me to assist you.

Yes, you can do this yourself, and save yourself the costs of a technician doing it.

What you have is a clogged AC condensate drain hose.

When the AC is on, the AC system removes moisture form the air in the cabin, and drains this moisture out onto the road surface.

What you need to do:

Open the passenger side door, and have some towels and a small bucket ready. Pull back the carpet in the passenger side footwell, and, once the carpet is pulled back, you will be looking for a small black rubber hose that goes from the heater box, and pokes thru a rubber grommet in the firewall, towards the engine. Pull the rubber hose towards you, away from the firewall grommet, and see if the outer end is plugged up with mud. If so, insert a suitable thing, like a pencil, into the end to unclog it. Be prepared for about a quart of water to drain from the hose into your small bucket.

If the water does not drain from the open end, pull the hose off totally, from the bottom of the fitting on the heater box, and runs a coathanger thru it, to release the blockage, and then flush it out with water. Note that when you remove the rubber hose from the heater box fitting, water will drain out onto your carpet. This is where you need the towels.

I hope that this helps you out, ans saves you the 70 dollars most places would charge you to clean your drain hose.

If my assistance is useful, please consider leaving a 4-thumbs rating; I'd appreciate it greatly.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance. Have a great day.

Water on driver floor and recently very wet on backseat floor after a heavy rain. Been happening and getting worse. Also, trunk is always damp and usually water on inside of trunk lid. Had checked out:...


The green solution is Radiator Fluid. There is a leak from the Heating / AC somewhere. Since you have already checked the Heater Core then the likely culprit is a loose, cracked, connection or hose or line that has a hole. And because of the heat generated, they are hard to detect because the leak "dries-up" before you can detect "where".
Because of this: re-expose the Heating / AC system again = take the dash components back off. You can reconnect the electrical components that turn-on and run your heating controls. Use dry, white paper towels wrapped completely (from one end to the other end) around the hoses/lines. Start you car and run the Heating. The paper towels will not dry as rapidly as the lines will. The wet towel section is the culprit and the one that needs to be replaced.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

There is a water leak somewhere in my 98 toyota camry that leaks into my passenger side floor. There is no sun roof and no visible leaks from the windows or doors. Any thoughts? A/C leak maybe? water...


I am the original owner of camry xle 1998 with wet floors. In 2000 I had drivers side door seal leaking at welt. Removed old door seal and new weather strip on drivers side installed. The door panel was never wet, but wet at bottom of door where there are drain holes...slowly leaking under carpet.
In 2001 later water again. Coming from overflowing A/C evaporator-drain plugged/ tank full of debris. Removed evaporator, cleaned + drain cleaned.
In 2003, driver door seal against window rotted. Removed door panel and found leak at window belt molding at the mirror joint inside + out. Lots of mold under carpet needed to replace! Made a fuss at dealers for reacurring problem and they replaced the carpet for free.
