Check heater and coolant hoses around bulkhead for splits or fraying at clips. this would cause water to run down bulkhead and into footwell.

Water leak in my range rover on driver side floor had drain unstop from sunroof what else could it be


You unclogged the sunroof drain line - that is good. Are you sure that the line didn't pull up thru the floorboard. Many vehicles run the drain line down the drives side window pillar and out thru the floorboard. If the hose shrinks with age (as some do), they can pull up into the cabin and leak on the floor.

I have a water leak on the passenger side floorboard. (checked the heater core already) Does not smell like anti-freeze either? Floods daily?


If you are running your A/C it is probably condensation off of the evaporator core. Your air box should have a drain that goes through the firewall. If this is plugged up there is no where for the water to go and it spills over inside of the cab. Make sure the drain is clean and clear and you should eliminate your problem.

2005 buick lesabre AC hose plugged leaking water onto passenger floorboard. How do I fix this?


You need to find the drain pan line that comes through the firewall. Open the hood and search for the line on the passenger side firewall. The line is probably clogged from insects, animals, or other gunk. use a short piece of dowel or wire to unclog the line and allow the pan to drain to the outside of the vehicle.

What is causing water to leak down onto the passenger side floorboard of my 2004 Mazda 6 wagon when I have AC on?


Feel the water and smell it. If it smells sweet and fells oily, is is coolant. If is isn't oily and has no real smell, it is water. There is a tray under the evaporator and heater cores that catches water/coolant and drains it via a tube thru the firewall to the outside of the car. This tube is probably clogged and needs purged. If you have coolant on the floor, you'll need to replace the heater core. If it is water, purging the hose will solve the problem as the water is just condensation from the AC coils

I have a 2001 cavalier. I recently noticed the passenger floorboard (it's usually just me in my car so wouldn't notice passenger floorboard) & carpet are soaked! It doesn't smell of...


There are 2 problems that i know of that could be cause by a/c assuming that is the problem. One is the drain hose that goes out of the firewall could be plugged causing water formed by condensation to back-up into the car (but shouldn't be considering you said you weren't running a/c).

The other is caused by rain water etc falling into the air intake (for hvac blower) that sits between the windshield and firewall (under the plastic cover where your windshield wipers mount normally close to passenger side). Normally there is a guide that keeps water from draining into this area. If there is a guide, check to see if the drain hole is plugged. If there is no guide to keep water out it may have been fixed by a TSB.

My ac is leaking water into my floorboard why?


There is a drain that goes through the firewall to remove any condesation that the evap core has removed from the air coming into the vehicle. That drain has become plugged. Usually you will see a small rubber elbow sticking out of the firewall on the engine side and usually towards the passenger side. Once you find the drain you can carefully poke around to get the debris moved.

Water leak on passenger floorboard also an ac problem


probably leaking heater core. you may have low coolant level now. the only place water comes in the cabin is for the heater, that has got to be it. the heater core can be bypassed (like my car's is) by simply cutting the hose that leads into the car and leave about a foot, make a big U out of it and plug the other side of the hose into the coolant passage that returns from the heater core and leads into the intake manifold. pretty easy you will need a knife, hose clamps, and common sense. the third one is a little harder to come by! :)

I have a 2001 eclipse. Water leaking onto driver side of floorboard. There is so much water it is puddling.I am not sure if it is ac drain or heater core. I can't find ac drain to see if it is clear....


I recently had this repaired. As it turns out, the evaporation reservoir separated from the firewall. I was fortunate enough to have a good mechanic that completely diassembled my dash to locate the leak. He did not make up some lame diagnosis. I was unfortunate enough to have to pay for the extensive work, but it is worth it. He resealed the heater core compartment to allow the water to drain out properly. I spent many hours searching for an answer in the internet. this is the only solution that I know of.

Water on passenger floorboard


there should be a drain for condensation in the lower part of the engine compartment on the firewall . it might be plugged up so the water stays in the compartment and leaks inside.
