Question about 2000 Saturn L-Series

1 Answer

There is water draining into the front passenger compartment when it rains hard (maybe other times). I can't seem to find a drain. It does not seem to be AC dependent (AC does not work). I've read about leaves in drain pan and there were a lot of leaves around the passenger air filter. Ideally help would point me to the drain location. Many thanks.

The seal around your windshield is bad. That's where the water is getting in.

Lots of rain water leaking into front passenger foot rest.


Are you certain it is rain water? It could be condensation from the A/C coil that fails to drain out of the drain pan, or possibly coolant from a leaking heater core. If you are certain it is rain water, depending upon the age of the vehicle, and possibly some other things, here are the possible options:

  1. Leaking door gasket.
  2. Leaking windshield seal due to rust
  3. Leaking windshield seal due to improper installation
  4. Leaking windshield seal due to acoustic (sound) over pressure (if you have extreme sound system with heavy bass)
  5. If you have a sunroof, if the drain hose comes down the passenger side door column, it could be leaking into the passenger compartment rather than drain through the floor pan.

Buick passenger side front and rear carpets soaking wet


The two most common causes are rain water leaking in or the ac drain being clogged up. I would vote for rain water if the entire carpet area is wet.
Could be coming in around the windshield, or one of the door gaskets.

I own a 2004 Suzuki Forenza and have noticed that water drips on the carpet when I run the AC or when it rains. We've already taken apart the drain and confirmed that the leak is not from the drain under...


You are exactly correct. There is a drain on the bottom of the evaporator case. Probably need to place the car on ramps or jackstands to get underthere and clean it out. If you don't feel you can do that safely go to a machanic and tell him what you need done. The drain is on the passengers side down by the front floor. Most times it's out side in the engine compartment, but some have a small hose you can get to inside.

Leak inside car


the water drain for the ac system is clogged.
the inside coil gets cold and water drips off of it and needs to drain to the outside.
there should be a drain spout on the outside of the fire wall.
this small drain needs to be cleared.
let me know if this helps
thank you

I have a 2003 Volvo S60 that ends up with a wet carpet in front of the passenger seat whenever it rains (Seattle). Also, when I am driving and turning left or right at corners, I can hear water sloshing...


The drain for your A/C may be clogged causing the water to accumulate. You should be able to locate the drain from under the vehicle on the pasenger side, perhaps there is an accumulation of debri such as leaves for example. Also, sunroof drain may also be blocked. I can say I have seen this problem before, and its a good place to start. Good luck

The problem your discribbing is typical of a poor windsheild seal,not a plugged a.c drain hose.Take it to a window repair dealer to confirm this.

Front passenger side carpet getting wet


The AC evaporator units have a drain hose that runs through the floor because condensed moisture is a fact of life with AC units. Yours is plugged. You will have to get under the vehicle and look for the hose where it comes out, then take like coat hanger wire and clean it out, It is somewhere in the vicinity of where the passenger foot well meets the fire wall. If you have to raise the vehicle to get under it, make certain you have it safely supported. If you don't have the stuff, drive the passenger side wheels up on a good curb and use some cardboard to slide under.

2000 Grand Cherokee Dashboard leak


Maybe. If you have a fixed antenna on that side of the vehicle, the large rubber gromet on the wire leading into the passenger compartment may have come out, allowing lots of rain water to enter the vehicle. Happened on my 94 and flooded the passenger side.

Everytime it rains really hard rain gets in the car. There is a 2 or 3 inches in the passenger side floor board.


I have the same problem with my 91' 318. Water is coming in from the outside air intake at the base of the front windshield, under the black vent covers. If the basin fills up, water enters the vent system throught the outside air intake. Solution: there is a drain line at the fire wall, easily accessible between the firewall and engine block. It drains water from the basin. It becomes clogged with dirt, and prevents water from draining. However, after further inspection of mine I noticed that during periods of HEAVY rain, even a clean drain line is inadequate to drain that volume of water and the same happens. See attached link. Good Luck
