Condenser will shed water which normally drains under the car. either your drain hose is busted or the condenser housing is cracked. look for crack in housing--may be possible to reseal with epoxy.

How can I fix A/C-heater box door under dashboard? It is stuck and won't open or close to go from heat to A/C.

Not saying this will help but mine was stuck and I squirted some WD40 on the working parts up inside and kept working with it and finally it worked. After I got it working I shot a little heavier oil on it. It's ok now.

I have a 2005 Lexus IS300 and I noticed water leaking on the passenger side every time I turn the heater on and it's only done this sence it started raining here in Oregon how do I fix this?its leaking...

Don't drive the vehicle in this condition. Interior water leaks can damage vital components such as the ECU.
Check the heater matrix, which is situated in the centre of the interior of the car, up behind the dashboard, roughly behind where the stereo is located. It is surrounded by block, plastic shields, which have to be removed to get to it.
If this heater matrix is leaking, then you will have to replace it ASAP, or otherwise risk overheating, or flooding expensive and critical components within the vehicle.

If it only leaks with the heater on and air-con off, then the heater matrix is your likely suspect.
If you have a leak with the air-con on only, then check your air-conditioning evaporator unit's drain pipe for security and for any blockages.

Vacuum leak on 95 buick riviera, I have several problems related to vacuum leaks. First is cruise control quit working recently, second windshield washers not working and third air conditioner seems to...

May have to check out if the vacuum motors have the vacuum tubes attached but this may take a lot of work to disassemble the heating ventilation air conditioning out of the dash and underneath the dashboard. If rain enters the compartment under the dashboard, the pan that is designed to catch water may be disturbed or cracked somehow. Try to check fuses for a/c and the heating, the cruise control, and windshield wipers to see if there is an obvious electrical issue there. The vacuum leak is not related to the windshield wiper motor not working.

Good luck on this repair.

you will have to inspect the blend doors. These are the ones that control the flow of the air in the AC duct. It is under the dashboard. There might be loose linkages or parts that you may just need fitting or a bad motor for the door.

Hi there i have a 2006 ford ka and would like to know if it is hard to remove the aircon unit that sits under the dashboard?

Any work under a dashboard is awkward although not necessarily difficult as such. One thing to consider is that an air conditioning system has refrigerant suspended in oil in its pipes, and disconnecting pipes in such as system will spray this mess all over the place.

Where are the air conditioning water vents located on the underside of the vehicle?

Usually underneath the dashboard on passenger side, there u could locate a evaporator housing, under that housing there is some rubber hose where water from condensation pass though, follow those hoses till it goes through under the your vehicle!

I drowned my 1985 2.5td pajero and want to know what to do to fix the engine. i have already blown all the water out by taking out the glow plugs and turning the truck over. what else do i need to do?...

Hi Amandafer906,
I would have changed to air filter if it was badly flooded. If it was a clean filter it would be OK after drying it out.
You didn't say so but I would also have changed the oil filter.

Did you dry out the following items under your hood:
1. main fuse box (remove the plastic cover to help dry it out)
2. starter motor (and attached starter solenoid)
3. alternator
4. Engine Control Unit (sometimes called ECM) (might not be under the hood as it could be under the dashboard)
5. Main relay box (sometimes under the hood)

Did you check for water in:
1. Power steering reservoir
2. Brake fluid reservoir
3. Fuel tank

If its an auto transmission, water "could" have got down the auto transmission dipstick tube. I would change the auto transmission fluid if there is any milky clouding in the red oil on your auto transmission dipstick indicator marks. If it a manual gearbox then ignore the above sentence.

I assume the Pajero has been completely dried out, especially the wiring area under the dashboard. I am unsure if your dashboard console (ie the speedometer and guage section) is waterproof.

Air condition water leakage under dashboard

Most likely the heater core is leaking and requires replacement.
As a temporary measure you may block off the coolant supply to the heater core - note you will also need to block off the coolant return line.
