Re: water leak under dash driver side
What sort of car do you have? Ur name is swifty05..

air conditioning. IS your coolant leaking? It's suppose

Check if its coming from the back or front end also.

I had the same water leak issue with my 2005 uplander LT. I seal around the drain tube with RTV and I actually put a flexible plastic tube on the drain at the firewall to make sure water wasn't coming in. Although this is a known common problem. It did not fix my water leak. What I found is the body seam weld at the driver's side kick panel down by the parking brake pedal was leaking. Pull the carpet back and have someone spray the windshield with a water hose and look for leaks in this area. I had to loosen the driver's side fender to pull it away enough so that I could RTV (sealant) all of the seams in that area. I have not had a water problem since.
my suggetion is if the windsheild was replaced the water is getting under the molding through the top or top side of windshield and traveling down the channel under the molding to get into ur car one way to check this is take real soapy water and just pour it along the the top annd side of windsheild on side that is leaking .. see if that is the substance getting in .....
Well, do you suspect rain? If not, a/c water does this. It is remarkably clean, compared to other leaks...Look for little black press on hoses about 1/2 inch in diameter...often dislodged in error by a foot or repair guy.....
This drain comes from the very bottom of the heater box areas...
If you have a sunroof then the problem is most likely a drainage problem with the sun roof. The drains are blocked and the water is running down into the car.
The under the dash thing is the only thing that worries me. That is usually the location where the heater core will leak to. Are you sure it is water and not coolant? Coolant gives off a sweet smell and when it's hot you know cause it stinks.
But my money is on a sunroof leak and drainage problem if you indeed have a sunroof.
The A/C drain tube is clogged. There is suppose to be a drain tube going from your console, through the ductwork and out under your hood. Bugs make nests in them and road tar or undercoating can plug them. All you need to do is get under the car and open the tube.
Locate the IP to body harness connector, THIS CONNECTOR IS UNDER THE DASH HIGH UP ON THE LEFT HAND SIDE. Check to see if there is a water leak into the area and repair as necessary. Use a water hose to determine the source of a water leak and effectiveness of repair. Some examples of potential water leaks are: A-pillar seals, sunroof drain lines (if so equipped) and windshield/cowl sealing. Finally, repair or replace the IP to body harness connector, making sure no corrosion or debris is left on or between the terminals.
IT IS ADVISABLE THAT YOU REMOVE THE INTERIOR CARPETING AND DRY IT THROUGHLY. IT WILL MOLD AND SMELL REALLY BAD AFTER A FEW DAYS IN THE HEAT.
USE A WATER HOSE STARTING LOW AND WORKING YOUR WAY UP TO DETERMING WHERE THE LEAK IS. OR USING A FOAMING TYPE WINDOW CLEANER SPRAY IT WHERE YOU THINK THE LEAK MIGHT BE AND USE COMPRESSED AIR FROM THE INSIDE ON THE TRUCK FOLLOWING THE SEAMS AND WINDSHIELD.
