If the drain hose was cleared the water should have drained off. It sounds like the Condensation drain is still partially or fully clogged and not allowing the water to drain off. The only way to get into the area of the condensation drain, other than through the drain hose, is to open up the Coil area on the interior of the vehicle. When they attempted to clear the drain they most likely used a wire and ran it up the hose to clear it. If the drain hose is actually clear you might be able to drain it a little further by elevating the rear of the vehicle.

mcdevito75 here, Sounds like you have 2 problems First the water on the passeger side, it:"s most like luy a clogged drain for the A/C evaporator under the dash board, Check the drain hose on the firewal, just opposite the glove box, also if you can look under the dash on the pass. side and check the drain hose on the evaporatror. 2nd problem sounds like a bad heater core. Have your local shop check both these items for you

I've got a 2006 Saturn Vue that keeps getting water in the front, under the floor mats. It appears to be coming from the center underneath and behind the instrument cluster/center console. Could this be...


The most common source of water on the floor is a plugged a/c evaporator case drain hose. This drain is generally located down low on the engine side of the firewall at the passenger side and is usually a small short open ended hose that points down. Debris and bugs will clog this hose which makes the water that condenses on the evaporator [whenever the a/c is on] overflow and leak out of the heater/air conditioning housing and onto the floor. If it hasn't rained for some time yet you are still getting water on the floor I would bet on this hose being plugged. A puff of compressed air is enough to clean most of them out. Most sunroofs have one or two small drain holes that allow water to run down through the door pillars and onto the ground. If you pour a small amount of water around the top edges of the sunroof when it is closed you should soon see water dripping onto the ground under the outer edge of the vehicle. A few sunroofs just rely on tight weather stripping to keep the water out but those usually drip water on the driver or passenger if they are leaking. I see a lot of leaky windshields but again, it has to be raining for water to get on the floor from them.

Air conditioner is working in my 2007 edge but water dripping from dashboard and when I turn you can hear water moving around from behind the dash.


Check the drain hoses. If you are getting water inside the cabin, namely on the passenger side, then you have a clogged or crimped drain hose.

Feel around the passenger side front foot well for wet carpet. Inspect all the hoses and drain plugs to make sure you remove the clog.

I have water on the floor on the passenger side of ny 98 town car and i don't know where it came from or how to prevent it from happening again


did you notice the water after a rain? or was it dry?

the weatherstripping around the door may be damaged. inspect for tears, missing sections, detatched sections, use a garden hose and spray aroun the door seal to see if there are any leaks. also spray around the window to see if that's leaking.

are you sure it's water and not engine coolant? the heater core may be leaking. it is located on the passenger side under the dash. is the coolant low?

there may be a hole in the floor

Water pooling under passenger floor mat. is there a drain which might be clogged?


water from rainfall or water appearing on a dry day? if it's not rain it could be a cloged a/c evaporator drain. this might be hard to find. look for a clear hose (sometimes with a flap on the end) on the other side of dash (in the engine bay passanger side).

While running air conditioner, water began leaking from under dash on both sides of my 99 Nissan Frontier.


check the soft rubber drain tube inside the engine compartment it hangs down between firewall and engine, squeeze it to let the water out probably cloged. if cloged it backs up water into the passanger compartment and leaks inside car

Water building up on ps side floor board in 1996 jgc


Your water problem is caused by a cloged a/c drain. Under the hood on the pass. side firewall you can see a small tube coming out of the firewall (look towards the bottom). Take a coat hanger and try to clear out the drain, this will solve the problem. You should get a good amount of water come out.
