You will need to pull the carpet back and look for the tube coming from the black housing for the a/c system and then into the metal floor of the cab. Asually this will either get plugged up or get stuck closed. if you can pull it out and clean it but if you can't pull it out, get under the vehicle and look for the exit spout and clean it out from there.
please vote if this helps

Look on passenger side of vehicle under the accumulator,There is a black hose running down from bottom of evaporator housing.
Make sure it isnt pinched or kinked anywhere first.
Do you travel on dusty roads a lot or off road and construction sites?
If so your evaporator core may have build up of dust and dirt.
Two ways to clean it if this is problem .
1 take unit apart and clean which is major job.
2 remove blower motor and and you can rinse some of the dirt out with water hose .
Hopefully you will find yours is just plugged at hose and a simple cleanout will be good .

The drain on your evaporator core housing is most likely plugged. Condensation on the evaporator core drips down into the plastic housing and drips onto the ground through a hose on the firewall on the
passenger side.

Find the small hose on the firewall in the engine compartment. You should be able to pull off that
hose and see if its stopped up. If the hose is ok, you may need to remove some of the ac ducts
under the dash to get to the evaporator core housing to unclog the drain hole.

I have no doubt that thats the problem.

Water under pasenger side carpet not from heater core


Find the drain for the A/C located under the hood, firewall, nearest the bottom of the firewall. It will be a black tube and if plugged, the condensation from use of the A/C (which also turns on when the defrost is used to evaporate moisture) will back up into the blower box and drain onto the floor. Long term effects include; rotted floor board, mildew, shorted blower motor and loss of effective defrosting, heating and cooling. Use a coat hanger or other long thin item to clear the drain and allow the water to drain. The system will be much more efficient. Let me know if you need anything else.

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!

Water on the floor


I've ran into this problem before with another jeep. What happens is the condensation drain line from the evaporator housing gets plugged with the material that insulates the housing and the water can't drain and seeps through the seems and drips on the passenger side floor. Chrysler did at one time sale a plug kit for this. What you would do is drill a 1/4" hole in the side of the housing on the left hand side near the bottom and put a stiff piece of wire in it to unplug the drain line and then plug the hole with the plug kit from chrysler. just when your drilling the hole make sure you don't drill into the evaporator core or your freeon will leak out as well. I'm not exactly sure how far from the bottom to drill the hole if I remember right it is 2 inches just about center. Chrysler did have a service bulletin on this you may want to ask them when you see bout the plug kit.

Water on passenger floor...


Two things: If there is a stickiness or sweet smell to the water, your heater core may be leaking.
If this is just a summer thing, your a/c evaporator drain tube my be blocked/clogged or leaking inside the vehicle.

Leakage in passenger side floor board for a 93 nissan maxima 3.0 sohc


Does the leakage smell like coolant if so most likely the heater core, if it is just plain water the evaporator core, and heater core box could have a leak from being cracked letting the condensation leak into the floor especially if the evaporator drain tube is clogged. If it only does it when it rains well roll all the windows up shut doors run a water hose all over where there is wheather strippping to see if it seeps in.
