Number one cause is a worn out heater core. However, the blender switch from cold to warm may not be switching the vents from cold to warm. Then vent doors can get stuck or the actuators that move the blender vent doors can become faulty. The worst part is accessing them. They are in the venting behind up and under the console

A/c leaking water passenger floor


Usually a sign of a plugged drain tube.
The HVAC box has a tube that drains the water onto the ground.
The tube should be at the bottom of the firewall near the passenger floor.

Water leak fro dash bored


On the early 2000 model Grand Prix the issue with the water leaking into the passenger floor board is usually the seal that has come off near the blower motor, this seal is easily able to be replaced and is inexpensive right from GM. You can remove you wiper blades and the plastic coweling in front of the widshield then look down inside where the intake is for this blower motor and you should see the seal just laying there or maybe hanging off. The purpose of this seal is to divert rain water that runs down the windshield and into this intake area. Replace this seal and it should take care of the issue.

If this isn't the issue some of these cars had an issue with the windshield not having enough adheasive installed on the lower portion of the windshield and allowing rain water to be driven in between the window and the dash, the water then runs down the firewall behind the dash and corrodes wiring. A friend of mine had this issue on his pontiac and had to had the entire ECM wiring replaced and the window resealed.

Water drips onto carpet on passengers side front foot area. Can be seen dripping from plastic air ducting above foot area. how to figure out how its getting in. Have replaced windshield.


You can only have 2 issues dripping water onto the passenger floor board. First being a clogged drip line for the ac evaporator. The other is a leaking heater core. Figuring out which one is the issue is fairly easy.

If your vehicle has anti freeze in it when you turn the defrosters on it will smell sweet. If it does you have a leaking heater core. If it does not then the drip line is clogged.

To clear the drip line get under the vehicle and snake the drip line on the firewall. It usually is a 90 degree rubber or plastic piece on the passenger side about a third of the way up the firewall. A leaking heater core means it has to be replaced and not really a job for someone that is not exsperienced.

Passenger floor gets sopping wet during rain or hosing


You may have a windshield that is leaking due to a small gap in the adhesive that glues the glass to the body. The water will trickle in behind the dash and it can be very difficult if not impossible to pipoint the excact source of the leak. If you can't find it yourself you may need to go to a windshield replacement facility and see if they can help you out. If it turns out that the windshield is leaking you may have to replace it as sometimes they can't be removed without being damaged due to how they are glued in place. Hope this helps out a bit!

I have a problem with my fire wall leaking coolant, it seems to be comming out of one of the hoses that lead to the heater core.but i have no loss of heat and i cant smell anything from the vents.and i was...


Do you have coolant on the front passenger floor board? When heater cores fail it will leak onto the floor board and mist coolant on the windshield. If you have a loose clamp on the heater core hose it's possible it could be leaking down the firewall into the passenger compartment. If you don't have coolant on the windshield check the clamps / hoses first.

Water sloshing around in the vent, leaking onto passenge floor.


There should also be a drain tube or hole below duct work on outside of firewall or maybe even lower.

Rain water leak


Did you have the windshield replaced recently? This is typically caused by faulty installation of a windshield. Sometimes it can be fixed by adding windshield sealant (polyurethene, not silicone) where the windshield is adhered to the subframe - most likely along the bottom edge.

Water leaking onto drivers side floor board.(not radiator fluid,not leaking at any door seal).


It could be the base of the windshield, or any holes in the firewall in the area just below the windshield (i.e., where the wiper arms are).
