I have a 1997 Toyota Camry. Water was collecting on the front PASSENGER floor after a rain. I opened my sunroof and found the front drainage holes (about 1/8" diameter) in the corners of the track sunroof track. They looked clear. I poured a bottle of water in track and watched the result. Sure enough, water started dripping from the right ride of the glove box on to the floor. I started tearing out the interior panels to trace the leak. What I found is that if I poured the bottle of water REALLY slow into the sunroof hole = no leaks. But if I pour it too fast the small 1/8" hole cannot keep up and the track overflows! THAT is where the leak comes from in my car! If water overflows the track, then it makes its way down the column trim, around the glove box and on to the floor.

So I need to help the 1/8" sunroof hole drain faster. I took some 18AWG TFFN electrical wire and jammed it into the hole to help clean it out. I then removed the black plastic mud flap behind my front tire and blew out all of the leaves and rotted debris that where behind that flap. It was packed with junk! I poured more into the 1/8" hole and it seemed to drain quicker.

I hope this information helps others.

Either the heater core is leaking, or one of the hoses to the heater core is leaking at the heater core. You will need to access the heater core and visually check to determine which one is actually leaking.

SOURCE: 2005 Honda civic: when the AC is on water leaks to

firstly the water is the evaporator ( for the A.C. unit ) which is housed iunder the dash on the passnger side has gone bad and sprung a leak , its a difficult project to do and hard to get at but if you buy a manual it will help you oout in determining exactly how to replace it , seconly the squeak sound is usually indicative of a low power steering fluid reservoir or possible bad pump have it checked but check the fluid first

My 2000 honda civic has a leak in either the tail light or trunk leaking into the passenger compartment on the drivers side


I am assuming the water comes in when it rains.
Could be the trunk gasket or the tail light.
You may need a body shop to find the leak.

Water leak on drivers side in my 1999 Honda Civic DX Coupe


Go to the passenger side or driver side there you need to find the A/C drain tube make sure that it is draining outside and not in the compartment area.This drain hose tends to pop out, so when you have the A.C on you notice there is water draining out but in your case its going in thhe car.

I have a 1992 Honda Accord and whenever it rains, water leak through the speaker on the passenger side door and make a big puddle on the floor. Also the water leaks into a hole in the floor by the ECU


Not comming from the speaker! Make sure that the rubber door trim aound the door is intact and not damaged. Additionally, check the rubber seal on the outside of the window where it retracts into the door. These are the only 2 ways that water can enter through the passenger door.

2005 Honda civic: when the AC is on water leaks to the passenger side floor and a squeal noise is heard when the car makes a hard left turn.


The squeal, first:
Noises are difficult to diagnose without hearing them in person. There are too many potential causes; maybe the power steering pump (turning the wheel to lock causes this), maybe tires, maybe a cv joint.
The A/C water is condensation that occurs because of the cold. This is perfectly natural and is a sign of a very cold-blowing A/C unit.

I have water leaking inside the car on the passanger side floor. It looks like its coming from the air ducks.


Was the air conditioning on? Usually water on the floor of the passenger side would mean the AirConditioners drainage hose was either clogged or became disconnected.
