SOURCE: Water leak on driver's side - 2000 Mitsubishi Galant

THE PROBLEM WAS WITH MY CAR THAT THE AC CONDENSATION DRAIN TUBE IS INADEQUATE IT WILL RUN BACK AND DOWN ONTO THE FLOORBOARD. I TOOK THIS TO A MITSUBISHI DEALER AND THE PROBLEM COULD NOT BE FIXED AND THEY BLAMED IT ON MANY PROBLEMS. I FINALLY TOOK IT TO A RECOMMENDED MECHANIC AND IN 15MIN AND 45.00 HE HAD IT FIXED BY PUTTING A 90DEG FITTING ON THE DRAIN TUBE TO ENSURE PROPER DRAINAGE OUTSIDE OF THE VEHICLE AND IT HAS BEEN FINE FOR OVER A YEAR. WHAT I FOUND OUT AND BY SPENDING ABOUT 300.00 AT THE DEALER IS THATA THEY DO NOT THINK OUTSIDE OF THE BOX, IF IT IS NOT IN THE REPAIR MANUAL THEY CAN'T FIX IT.

SOURCE: Water on Drivers side Saturn SC2

Is it antifreeeze from heater core or heater core hose leak?  Is the leak pure water, or maybe something else?
Put it in the garage again overnight with an old white towel in the drivers foot well, best if you can find a way to stretch it from drivers seat forwar to firewall and keep it off of floor mat.  Check it before you go to bed,  then in the morning if no leak found yet.  see if the color/location of the spot helps you identify the source.  I think the heater core is under the dash center.  Anti freeze is green/yellow or orange.
good luck

SOURCE: water on the passenger side floor when it rains

Sounds like the drain for your heater case is blocked, there is a small drain tube on the engine side of the firewall on the passenger side, you can shine a light down there and poke a screw diver in it or just pull the elbow right off and it should take care of it.

SOURCE: wet floor

If this has happened since you started using the A/C it is probably the drain tube for the A/C. They get plugged and usually someone has to go under the car with a coathanger and open the tube up.

SOURCE: Where is the A/C drain tube on 2007 Camry?

in engine bay there are to bent pipes with caps on the them. on says H the other L. take the caps off and get a screw driver and a rag. place flat blade in the valve once you have taken the cap off the low side. and push the valve in causing the A/c gas out, the a/c gas can frezz in seconds so place rag over and dont let gas touch skin. one youv done low side do the same to the high side.

Underneath driver side floor mat is damp. I don't


if it is slippery and stinky, your heater core is leaking. otherwise you have a leak around your windshield and rainwater is coming in and not drying out as it is under the mat. very hard to track down, get some clear aquarium sealer and get to work.

I have a Mazda B2500 (2000). Everytime it rains the drivers side floorboard gets soaked. There is no dripping or water running down the door. What could this be?


You could have a windshield that is leaking water. Often this water will trickle down from the bottom/inside of the glass and then down the firewall, under the carpet or floor mat, and to the floor. The way I usually hunt for these is to remove the floor mat or carpet then get a flashlight and lay down in the cab so you can see under the dash area while someone sprays water on the vehicle with a garden hose. Often the leak will show up as a trickle that you can then backtrack to it's source. Another spot to look for is at the cowl in front of the windshield where air for the heater and a/c is pulled into the passenger compartment. The water drain holes in this area can plug up and allow water to overflow into the passenger compartment. Good luck, hope this helps!

I have water mostly under my driver front side floorboards. There is some water under the passenger side but only about 1/4 of what is on the driver side. I am not sure where the water could be coming...


is it water or anti-freeze
if it is anti-freeze i would have to say your heart core is leaking bad
also check you engine coolant and see if you have lost any
get back to me and leave some feed back
hope i was a help

1999 Dodge Durango....it has started leaking under driver mat?


I have water coming from under the dashboard as well when the A/c is running. My fathernlaw is a mechanic and he thinks the drain for thea/c is plugged underneath. He says you must have the vehicle on the hoist and get it from underneath. I am having other issues with my Dodge caravan, and is been in the shop, so I have not had a chance to get under and look at it and try to fix it

I have water pooling under the floor mat on the drivers side. I have dried it and it keeps getting wet.


It may be of 2 things. One thing you can look at is the evaporator part of your AC under the dash. It may have accumulated water in its coil that the excess flown towards the floor. Another are possible holes on the car's body. There could be a hole in the car's firewall that water from the drain may have flowed to the inside.
