It is the clogged drain tube...
You have to try again...
I use a metal coat hanger wire.
You might try a small vacuum cleaner or compressed air.

Central vent block


The vents are clogged.
you will need to check both drain tubes to make sure they are clear.the Evaporator drain tubes the condenser does not have drain tubes. They exit the vehicle underneath the vehicle along side the transmission. They are a black rubber tube, you will need to get under the vehicle to access them.If you have no water coming out of those drains that is your problem.On top of the transmission tunnel inside the vehicle. If you look along the transmission tunnel inside the vehicle you will see the carpeted section that can be removed which is held in place by a screw. Remove this carpet on both side and you should be able to see the evaporator drains.Because the tubes are not draining the water the housing will fill up with water until it finds a point were it can leak out from.Underneath you will not see the clogging you do not need to replace them for clogging. The best way is to check the drain tubes were they connect to the housing. Yes it can be a common problem if your cabin filter has not been changed at the times that are required or if you live in an area were there are a lot of trees.

There is dealer service bulletin on such problem:
If this leakage happens when it is not raining ... and ... it does not smell like engine coolant (a sweet maple-like smell) ... AND .... you are running the air conditioning, this may be condensation drain-off from the A/C evaporator. This condensation is supposed to drain through the bottom of the heater/AC box and then through the floor (at the top of the transmission tunnel hump), to the ground. This is the puddle of water that you see under a car when the air conditioning is running.
If the drains in your heater/AC box are clogged (or the tubes connecting the drains to the chassis floor), the condensation will gather and then leak out onto the floor. The cure is to clear the drain tubes. If all of the above points fit your scenario, of course, this is under warranty. I would suggest that you ask what the dealer has already done (in detail) and note that you still have the leakage and the the drains are likely still clogged (again, if the above parameters fit your case).

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).

Where is the water leak in my AC thats flooding the front carpet of my Chevrolet Venture. I have only been driving the car when the weather is dry. Even when I do not wash the car the inside of the carpet...


The a/c drains the condensation water out thru the floor by a small hose or tube.
If you look under the van near the passenger side floor at the firewall you should see a small tube and it may be stopped up.
You may have to put the van on a lift to find the tube.

The front passenger (right side) carpet is soaking wet. No other part of the carpet is wet, just this area. Can you advise if it is an AC condensation leak? The water is fresh, not radiator fuid or...


Could be several things:-

1) Pollen filter blocked, needs changing.

2) Sunroof drain blocked, my car is different but the sun roof drains down a tube which eventually goes down the rear of the front wing. There's one both sides. To clear, take the wheel off, take the inner wing shroud out and clean all the mud that has built up underneath it, Then make sure the tube is clean.

3) Faulty door seal, check your door frame seals.

My car AC is leaking water in the car


Your condensation drain is clogged. It's located below the cowl, inside the engine compartment. It drains under the passenger side carpet to outside. Use compressed air blow to out all debris in and below cowl/drain.

Water is pouring into front floorboard when AC is turned on.


You most likely have a plugged evaporator drain hose. This small hose drains off the mosture that condenses on the evaporator core when the a/c is on. If the drain is plugged this water will ultimately find it's way out of the housing and onto the floor. Usually this little hose gets plugged with dirt, dust or other crud that accumulates over time which can be blown out to clear it. This hose is usually located down low on the engine side of firewall directly ahead of the passenger side. Most of them are only 2 to 4 inches long and about 3/8" diameter and can be kind of hard to locate.

Water on passenger floorboard


Iside the car,in the middle of the console is a shallow tray.Its job is to catch the codensation that drips off the aircon.Same as you see hoses coming off home aircons.this is what is in the car.There is a hose,about as thick as a finger,that drains the codensation out through the firewall of the car and into the rear of the engine bay to the ground.There may be 2 hoses.One either side if its a split catchtray.The hose has either been knocked off or is blocked.Usually blocked.The tray itself gets dirt in it and this is where 'gunk' can buildup over the drain hole.Find the hose and shoot some compressed air up the hose or run some line trimmer cord up there.Hope this helps

My carpet of my car is soaking wet and my dad said it has to with my airconditing of my car ? What can I do?


The carpet kept getting wet because the door drain holes were blocked.
Once they opened up the drain holes the rain no longer sloshed around inside the door and leaked into the car.
don't know if you are having the same issue.
