TSB out on this subject, to access the drain tube from the outside the car needs to be on a rack. You will see a hole in the bulkhead of the firewall, in that hole is where the drain tube is. Have to use an airblower to unclog, this is only a temp fix. HVAC unit has to come out and be dissassembled to trim back foam in case that holds debris in and wont let drain. Dash has to come out and all ductwork as well just to access the HVAC unit. Dont have that TSB number handy, but websites like mitchell.com and alldata.com have them on there websites.

Other Mitsubishi's Owners comment about this problem and tell us that here is the solution:
a.- open the driver's door
b.- locate where the air conditioner blower box is attached to the passenger side of the firewall – look to the immediate right at the top of the gas pedal arm
c.- condensation flows toward the front of the vehicle through the firewall at the leftmost edge of the air conditioner blower box
d.- open the hood and stand next to the front wheel on the driver's side
e.- look down at the firewall over the battery and to the passenger side of the brake master cylinder
f.- locate the small diameter metal tubes running horizontally and attached to the engine compartment firewall
g.- locate the hole in the engine compartment firewall panel behind the small diameter metal tubes
h.- this hole leads to the drain opening in the air conditioner blower box mounted in the passenger compartment
i.- follow the brake tubes as they run from under the vehicle and turn toward the front wheel on the driver's side
j.- locate the hole in the engine compartment panel behind the brake tubes
k.- insert a short length of stiff wire into the hole through the engine compartment panel to unblock the drain hole

If the A/C unit is not clogged, then the gromet around the drain portion of the hvac unit that seals the firewall to the HVAC is dry rotted and the water that is supposed to be draining outside is comming back inside. For example, this is a very common problem with the 04-05 endeavor. dash and hvac unit have to be removed to replace a $1.50 grommet. this is a very big job, all day job.

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.

We replaced the theromostat and the radiator but it is still leaking under the car on the drivers side


Leaking water on teh drivers side indicates a cracked block or cracked head in most cases. Unless you have a water injected motor, I don't remember Ford using one, there are no water ports on that side of the motor. It could be the water pump leaking and being pushed back when the vehicle is running so check for leaks around the water pump. You need to check the heads, side of the engine block and the freeze plugs to make sure there are no cracks or leaks around the head gasket seal.

Leak under car on driver side maybe waterpump


If the fluid is a bright green or yellow colour, it is coolant fluid. Check the water pump, there should be a seal leak drain hole under it, look for signs of a leak. If there is a green/yellow track leading from below the water pump. you need to have the water pump replaced. A leak from the engine would be dark brown to black an a transmission leak would be red tp very dark red. Coolant would tend to dry up while oils spills do not. The water pump is located on the side of the engine where the belts are. I do not know if your car is left or right hand drive.

Mazda Tribute. Water leak under driver's feet. Had similar leak on passenger's side and it was the air-conditioning. Could this be the same?


Generally, water on the passenger side is the A/C drain tube.
Driver side generally means widshield or sun roof seal leak.
Did you wash the Mazda or did it rain prior to puddling?
Before disassembling the windshield seal, test ... with a water hose (Remove floormat and place a towel on newspapers on the driver's side floor).
There is a "smoke" test" that can more accurately find the leak. See if you local AutoZone will rent one (maybe free) to you.

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.
