The A/C evaporator drain tube is most likely blocked. If you have a V6, you're in for a real treat trying to reach the thing to clear it. The tube is on the firewall behind the driver's side rear motor mount, and slightly to the left as you're facing the firewall. It is a 1/2" diameter metal tube projecting about 1/2" from the firewall, and is covered by the firewall sound and heat blocking material which has to be folded back to reach the tube. A pair of what I believe are brake lines are one finger's-width in front of it, making it VERY difficult to get to the tube. (Brilliant design, Mitsubishi!) If you are very dexterous, you can slip a small piece of wire or a cable tie under the brake lines and into the tube from the front to try and clear it. Good Luck!

Why does my air conditioner leak water on passager side floor


The Evaporator box has a Drain tube, this is blocked and not letting the water drain off ,hence the build up of water in the box which will overflow into the passengers side .
The drain tube needs to be unblocked to let the water drain off.

Air conditioner leaks on floor


Sounds like the outside drain is stopped up.
There should be a tube coming out of the firewall near the passenger floor.

2001, rain water comes onto the passenger side floor. I removed the cabin air cover and reinstalled, siliconing the edge to the windshield. It still leaks. Whats wrong?


Are you sure it's rain water and not coolant? Coolant would have a distinct smell.

Does the car have a sunroof? The drainage tubes on sunroofs can get stopped up and allow water to enter the car.

Leaking water


this sounds like a leaking heater core. It can be difficult to fix if your not experienced for it can be in a tight area. The trick is to be patient and get ready to work in a tight area. Is the water warm or cold? This can also be condensation from the air conditioner. If cold it is a hose that has come loose. If warm, most likely the heater core. Check with your local parts store for price of new one and you might compare to what a repair shop would charge. It can take a while and be frustrating.
