Look up at the firewall from underneth the passanger side, there is a insullation panel that the drain opening is behind. pop the clips outa the bottom of it and put a peice of wire or commpresed air in to unblock. another way is to remove the blower motor and do the reach around to unblock its there youll find it

What could be the cause of water in the front and rear floor board on the passenger side of 1998 jeep grand cherokee? thanks

Have you checked the AC evaporator core (located inside the air ducting) condensation drain at the bottom of the heater box to see if it is clogged, it exits under the truck on the passenger side at the bottom of the firewall, you will need to get under the truck to see it, this would be the common reason for the water issue. The next leak area would be the windshield seal, this is much less common..

Lots of water in my driver side floor board, where is this coming from? 2007 Jeep Wrangler

Your air conditioner evaporator core drain is most likely plugged up. This small drain is located down low on the engine side of the firewall on the passenger side. Usually it's a little rubber or plastic hose that points out or down and is about 3/8" in diameter and a couple of inches long. It gets plugged up with dust and crud and causes the water that condenses on the evaporator core to fill up, overflow, and drip on the floor from the heater & a/c housing ductwork. Usually a puff of air will clear the clog although sometimes you may need to clean it a couple of times until all the crud comes out. Once the drain is clear and the a/c is running then you should see water dripping out of it after a few minutes of operation on a humid day. Not hard to fix but the drain can be hard to find. Hope this helps you fix your problem!

My 1998 Jeep Cherokee passenger floorboard stays wet. It does not run down from anywhere. It is the center of the floor board and the floormat is not wet on top so the water comes up from the bottom of the...

Chrysler uses body drain plugs that sometimes cause issues. Also, if you smell coolant it could be a leak on the Heater core. Check the bottom of the vehicle for a missing rubber drain cover. Most of the time you can find replacements fairly cheap at your local auto parts store. You may want to remove the carpet from the interior or at least pull it back to visually see if there is a drain hole located there. I had this issue with a Neon until I found the missing Drain cover.

A/ not draining, dumping water into Pass/side floor board. Can't find a drain? No visable tube or drain in firewall seems to drip some from the hole in the chassie. Where is the drain?

Go under the car and clear the condensation drain, it low almost the bottom of firewall on passenger side, it is a tube sticking out.
