    I have a chevy cobalt with the exact same leaking problem under the glove box.This is the first time I have had this problem since I have owned this car.We took a trip from the border of Wisconsin to Ohio on the edge of Lake Erie.No problems going,but we had a soaking wet floor on the passenger side all the way back.It is a 2005 model.Could this be a manufacture defect?

This happened to me many different times. The dealership kept telling me that it was condensation and that I needed to get a new cabin air filter. I went to another shop that said it was a major issue that needed to be taken care of at the dealership under warranty...

Finally, I complained at the dealership that this was a repeated problem. They looked at what they called a "check sheet" (recalls that they don't notify the customers of) and determined that there was a certain gasket that was never put on at the factory.

They put on the gasket, and I haven't had the problem since.

I have an 05 cobalt which did the same thing. There is a recognized problem with cobalts and doing that. I took it to the dealer and they said that there had to be a plate installed between the heater core and something else. But to no avail . My AC is still leaking. Not large amounts like it used to but still noticable

Yea i have the same thing happening with my cobalt and it is just condensation from the ac unit nothing serious just water, the only problem is that that could be a possible rust site years down the line.

A quick scan of fourms through google turned this up in the 2005 cobalt. It has a combined heater/ac core that is under the dash on the passenger side. It may have a drain tube that is pinched/plugged. It's probably condsation. It has antifreeze in it (dayglow green/hot after the engine has been running) its possibly the heater core line that comes in from the engine cooling system.

Air does not blow from my 2000 Grand Prix's air conditioner at all. The air went out temporarily one day and came back, but the next day it would not work at all. I have looked at the blower motor,...

If you look on the firewall on the passenger side there should be a drain hose for the A/C under the evaporator, these can get clogged over time and cause water to puddle on the floorboard. Just take a straightened out clothes hanger and push it up into the drain hose breaking up any blockage in there.

To replace the blower motor, take out carpet under glove box. look under glove box. there should be three screws to take out and then just pull out the old blower motor.

I went to start my car today and pushed the clutch in and it went straight to the floor on my 06 chevy cobalt ls. Can you help?

Check the fluid for the clutch. It has a small master cylinder next to the brake master cylinder. It should use brake fluid. If it is low, top it off. If it goes low again, you'll need to investigate where it's leaking from. You could have a leaking master or slave cylinder.

On my 2005 chevrolet cobalt 2.2L engine where dose the carbond fliter go

The carbon air filter (ACDelco filter 52493319) is located behind the glove box. To change your filter:
  1. Open the glove box
  2. Push in the stops (tabs) with rubber bumpers on either side of the glove box
  3. Lower the glove box down until stopped by the retractable string
  4. Slide the retainer for the string up and out of the whole (it's okay to let it retract back in the dash)
  5. Lower the glove box down the rest of the way
  6. Release the three tabs covering the filter door (you should see a Delphi sticker just below the tabs)
  7. Flip the door down
  8. Pull out the old filter (note the direction of the air flow is DOWN)
  9. Insert the new filter
  10. Reassemble

You have a problem with the blower motor resistor. This is a very commen problem on all gm cars and light trucks. The part is not to pricey. You can find the resistor under the glove box buy the blower motor. Two bolts and out it comes.

Water dripping inside car

It sounds like you have a drain stopped up on the air conditioner system. You have to get under the vehicle prefferably with it on a lift and clean out drain.
