I had the same problem in my '02 Lancer, and I found that it is a design flaw in the evaporator. It gets clogged with debris and feeds back through the blower. I remedied this by removing the drain hose (it's an "L" shaped hose coming out of the firewall), and, using a 4 ft. piece of tubing into the evaporator, siphoned out the junk clogging it up. Quick, easy, and free.

Water is running under my dash onto floorboard in my 2007 dodge caliber after it rains. Where is the water comming from

You need to find the conduits for rain - one of them has a leak in it probably from corrosion. Try to locate just where the water is getting in and see if you can use a sealer to stop the water from getting in.

I would remove the glove box and anything else in the way and look for the source when hosing down the car.

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

Ac system does not retain freon, cannot find leak when using dye.

Most probably the leak in in the evaporator side of your AC system. Look under the car near the passenger side of the rear engine compartment for the condensate drain and see if you find the UV dye there. If so then that is where the loss is happening. If you don't see it there be sure that the condensate hose is not clogged. You will have to get the car on a mechanic's rack to find and clear that problem. You will have that problem if you ever found water in the passenger floorboard after a sharp left turn. Use a long #2 phillips screw driver to clear.

Water in floorboard ford f150

More than likely the AC systems condensation drain tube is clogged with leaves, pull the AC blower motor out and clean out the leaves in the bottom of the housing and flush it with water.

Water leaking onto passenger floorboard, is this from the heater core and if so, how do I change it?

if it is water and not coolant then perhaps your AC drain is clogged. You may have to slide under the car to see the drain. It will be on the firewall, probably just a piece of rubber tube pointed down. You can gently probe it or stick a wet/dry vac up to it to clear the clog. Report back if its a sweet smelling colored fluid with a slimey feel ( coolant) .

My passenger side floorboard floods every time I use the AC in my 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee. can you please help me locate the AC drain line so that I can un clog it?

The drain hose that allows moisture to exit the HVAC system is clooged with debri and prevents the water from exiting the HVAC area. Open the hood and you will see a rubber hose that has an opening on the end. Use compressed are to blow the clogged area free and allow water to exit.

Water leaking passenger side

Your AC condenser drain is clogged up, it is on the firewall in front of the passenger, engine comp, look for a little hose sticking out or a drain, get a piece of wire in there, probably gummed up or got bugs in there. The water should spill out once you get it clear. Hope this helps.

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! :)
