There is a drain hole just right (as your driving) of the steering column on the drivers side of the car. You can access this hole from the engine compartment. its right on the firewall. I just had this issue with my 2003 Galant (4 banger) and tried to dislodge the obstruction with a plastic tie, but it would not turn the corner to do the job. <br /> <br /> I then took the carpeting down on the drivers side of the car and found the tube. Its about 1/2 inches in diameter, black and at the lowest point of the plastic drain pan. I drilled a small hole in the tube and stuck a hanger into the hole to dislodge the obstruction. Since I used the plastic tie, I knew the obstruction was towards the cooler. Water started to flow out of the newly drilled hole and through the firewall drain hole. Once the water was drained, I plugged the drilled hole with gasket material. Let it set for a day and it was just like new. <br /> <br /> <br /> It tool about 20 minutes and was easy. Just make sure you drill the hole so that the wire hanger goes the right direction (towards the cooler). <br /> <br /> Good luck.<br /> <br /> Fran<br /> <!-- from fixya rte -->

2003 mits galant has a drain on the passenger side floor board form under the glove box

most likely from the heater core. it will have to be replaced if it is.--- open the hood and look around the spot the leak is, there should be 2 hoses connected to the body. make sure they aren't leaking. if they, or 1 of them are, just try tightening the clamp or replace the hose.

Water is leaking into the passenger compartment on the passenger side of the vehicle

Feel and smell the water. If it is slippery and smells like antifreeze the heater core is leaking. If not the drain for the ac evaporator is clogged.

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.

My car is leaking water inside when I turn the AC on. I have a 2001 Mitsubishi Galant ES

I had a problem with water also, so I took it to the dealer. It was a clogged drain on the passenger side. I think the one that ran from the windshield wiper area. It took about five minutes fo fix and my dealer did it for free. Not sure if your issue is the same.
