Central vent block


The vents are clogged.
you will need to check both drain tubes to make sure they are clear.the Evaporator drain tubes the condenser does not have drain tubes. They exit the vehicle underneath the vehicle along side the transmission. They are a black rubber tube, you will need to get under the vehicle to access them.If you have no water coming out of those drains that is your problem.On top of the transmission tunnel inside the vehicle. If you look along the transmission tunnel inside the vehicle you will see the carpeted section that can be removed which is held in place by a screw. Remove this carpet on both side and you should be able to see the evaporator drains.Because the tubes are not draining the water the housing will fill up with water until it finds a point were it can leak out from.Underneath you will not see the clogging you do not need to replace them for clogging. The best way is to check the drain tubes were they connect to the housing. Yes it can be a common problem if your cabin filter has not been changed at the times that are required or if you live in an area were there are a lot of trees.

There is dealer service bulletin on such problem:
If this leakage happens when it is not raining ... and ... it does not smell like engine coolant (a sweet maple-like smell) ... AND .... you are running the air conditioning, this may be condensation drain-off from the A/C evaporator. This condensation is supposed to drain through the bottom of the heater/AC box and then through the floor (at the top of the transmission tunnel hump), to the ground. This is the puddle of water that you see under a car when the air conditioning is running.
If the drains in your heater/AC box are clogged (or the tubes connecting the drains to the chassis floor), the condensation will gather and then leak out onto the floor. The cure is to clear the drain tubes. If all of the above points fit your scenario, of course, this is under warranty. I would suggest that you ask what the dealer has already done (in detail) and note that you still have the leakage and the the drains are likely still clogged (again, if the above parameters fit your case).

What can cause floor in the back, (behind the front passenger seat) to be soaked with water (& I mean SOAKED) ?


I assume there are no leaks in the windows or sunroof.
One probable cause, is the Air Conditioning unit. On all cars there is a drain line for the AC unit. As a unit runs, it produces condensation. (Just as a bottle of cold water produces condensation in a warm, humid area). That water has to go somewhere, so there is a drain at the bottom of the system. That drain (which comes out under the car, usually centered under the dashboard area), can become clogged or pinched and leave the water to accumulate in the system base, (again inside the car, under the dash). When this happens, the water will seep under the carpet and find the lowest area, which in this case, is the floorboard in the back seat area.

2003 Toyota Landcruiser - dripping water from AC unit inside car, passenger floor board...AC works fine...clogged drain line ???


yes the drain line is clogged,, its located along the firewall and is a bear to see,, if you get under the vehicle, and look along the edge you'll see it don't blow air into it , that will just make the clog worse, take a wire, and gently ease it up into the tube, working slowly , be ready to get wet,, once you loosen the clog the water behind it will flush it out, and sometimes there is quite a lot

Air conditioner leaks water into the passenger side


the moisture dripping into your passenger compartment is condensation that is supposed to be dripping out of the a/c box via a tube that runs along the firewall to the bottom of the car(thats where the water on the ground comes from on most rigs that have been running a/c for a while). it sounds like the drain hose, or the base of the a/c box where the hose attatches has gotten clogged. if you can get to where the hose attatches to the box, remove it and blow air through the hose. before reatatching the hose, be sure there is noting blocking the niple on the bottom of the box. you should be able to get a pick or small screwdriver through the hole to clear the debris. if that fails to work you will most likely have to remove the a/c box (very difficult and lengthy process) to clean the drip tray in the bottom of the box. if it comes to that i would recomend modifying the box somehow to create a larver drain hole, and allow for a larger drain hose. if its clogged that bad after just 4 years, you will probably experience this problem again without enlarging the drain hole. hope this helps

Water leak on passenger side on 99 chevy s 10 not anterfreeze, leaks when not being driven


there is only one thing that leaks water there, that is the AC condensation drain, water forms as part of the AC cooling the evaporator core, this water must be drained away or it will flood onto passenger area, so there is a drain on the passenger side at bottom of firewall, will leak allot of water depending on how humid the air is.

Where is the heater core located on the 2002 Volvo S60?


There may be a clogg in the drain for your air condition. Or the drain for the water coming off of the windshield (on the bottom where the wiper blades are, may be clogged with leaves or debris. To check take a hose or alot of water and pour on windshield then look to see if it drips inside on the driver floor. To check if its an Ac drain leak turn AC on and run for a while and check to see if the mat is wet or water is dripping on floor mat. Good Luck

Leak in the front/middle of the undercarriage


If the leak is under the passenger side, about midway back (right under the firewal, to be exact), there is a line that does indeed drain water. This is the condensate drain for the air conditioner. As the AC operates, it removes humidity from the cabin area. This humidity condenses into water, and collects at the bottom of the heater/AC box, and then is drained out onto the street, via a rubber tube, thru the firewall. This is a normal condition, much like the AC unit in your home, it too has a condensate drain line. Nothing to worry about.
NOTE: If you run the AC with the "FRESH mode" active, as opposed to the "RECIRC" mode, you will get MORE water draining out under the car, as the AC is working against fresh air entering the cabin/more humidity... Hope this helps. Please feel free to comment back if you have further questions, and Thanks for choosing FixYa.
