Question about 2003 Acura MDX
While either of the solutions may be correct (unless someone lives in Florida or somewhere their using A/C in January, unlike Wendel), the main problem most likely causing the wet carpet is a clogged evap/heater box drain. You can usually crawl under the vehicle and locate the drain on the passenger side lower firewall. It is usually a rubber elbow that points downward and gets clogged with debris and slime over time. If it's a heater core you can feel the anti-freeze between your thumb and two fingers (it feels like a light oil and then sticky as stated earlier, but should now be on your driveway). If it's water and your using A/C everything should be normal. If it's water and winter, you have bad seals or debris holding open your vent inlets just under the windshield (this might show up better by noticing difficulty getting the vehicle to warm or defrost windshields in fair amount of time and even the smell of other vehicle's exhust fumes when you have the system set to recirculate air). This is not usually an exciting repair.
