Look under the hood where the ac lines go into the firewall,and look directly below it,it may have a elbow boot like thing on it,just pull it off and use compressed air to blow the drain out,it will come out like a water fall when it is unstopped,if this was helpful,please rate,thank you.

Water on passenger floor


I think I answered this last week!

Only when it rains?

Check user carpet for holes in the floor. Check rubber grommets coming through the firewall. Check sealing on the bottom and sides of windshield.

Whether it is raining or not?

Check for leaks from the heater core or hoses, or the heater control on the dash.

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.

Condensation water from air conditioner soaking front and rear passenger carpets. Where is drain located?


98 grand cherokee limited 5.2L same problem found leak not from heater box but from drain mount on firewall under the glove box not behind it. drain line should be located behind right front tire in the frame. Turn your wheels hard left look inside fender well right side towards back side. hole in frame where drain line should come out.

My floor boards in my Cavalier are Soaked ..


If you've been using your air conditioner during this time, and it hasn't rained at all, then the small drain at the bottom of the a/c evaporator core may be plugged. When you use the a/c to cool the car the evaporator coil [located next to the heater core in the ductwork under the dash] is very cold and moisture from the hot humid air condenses on it as a result. This condensation dribbles down the core and accumulates in the plastic housing under it where it should then drain out a small hole and drip onto the ground. If the small drain gets plugged, which happens quite often, then the water fills up the housing until it overflows and then runs out and soaks the carpet on the front passenger side. The drain is located on the engine side of the firewall, passenger side, down low where the firewall begins to curve under. Usually a puff of air will clear the clog and the drain will work fine again. If the carpet is really wet it would be a good idea to remove it and get everything dry again as it tends to get pretty smelly if left wet. One last note: usually a leaky a/c unit will only make the passenger side carpet wet unless it's been leaking for a long time while a leaky windshield seal can make both sides wet depending on where it is leaking. Good luck, hope this helps you out!

04 trailblazer AC leaks


Rather than pay the dealer $350+ to fix this, I found the "L" shaped drain hose behind and interior to the front passenger tire (I let the car idle with the AC on and waited for a drip. On my back on groud I reached in and found the drain line and it came off i my hand and about 4 oz of water and some decayed matter floowed out. I reaced back in and found the hole to which the L line was attached. It was a rubber fitting on the end of a metal pipe. The fitting came off easily and then about 8 oz of water flowed out (carpet had been soaked for two days). I reattached the L drain line and noticed that inside the fitting was about 1/4 tsp of "mulch" - decayed leaves, pollen, etc. Reattacted the fitting and water now flows freely out the drain. And yes, its a very high humidity area - Houston, TX. And if you live anywhere near here you know about the intense yearly dispersion of Pine tree pollen. I thisnk that accelerates the blockage. Happen about every 2 years. (Third time for me. First two I let the dealer over charge me for this effort. BE SAFE WORKING UNDER YOUR CAR!
