The leak is probably at the intake fresh air vents under the windshield wipers. The only other thing is the windshield seal and that would not make such a mess. You can remove the mesh and clean out the pocket. Then you might be able to seal it with some silicone. I hope this helps you.

Water leak on drivers side in my 1999 Honda Civic DX Coupe


Go to the passenger side or driver side there you need to find the A/C drain tube make sure that it is draining outside and not in the compartment area.This drain hose tends to pop out, so when you have the A.C on you notice there is water draining out but in your case its going in thhe car.

I have a leak at the driver side front onto the floor. This is a right hand drive model. It only happens when car is parrked in the rain. It is so much that a puddle of water forms at the front and back...


i think the drain is blocked that allows the water that collects under the wiper motor grill ,look on the rear of the firewall and their is a compartment where the wiper motor is ,look either side and their is a drain hole and i think this is blocked with dead leaves or general rubbish like old rags or tissue paper

If you have a wet seat then it is likely defective weather stripping around the window.

Try this. If the floor is dry, then it rains and the floor remains dry, only gets wet after a drive in the rain or on wet streets, you may have a hole somewhere.

Check for holes from missing rubber grommets or holes in the floorboard or firewall from rust. Check for any rust holes or missing rubber grommets under the car or on the firewall, anywhere water can splash up into the vehicle from driving in rain or running through puddles..

Check wet spots along the carpeting all the way up under the dash, if the wet spot is higher than the floor itself, you could be getting the water from splashing through puddles.

Any holes under the car or in the fenderwell even up on the firewall can cause this problem.

First check for any obvious signs of rust, if none are found then look for missing or defective rubber grommets.

There is a hose on the passenger side fire wall. You may have the water leaking back into the car, and may need an extension piece.

Water on Drivers side Saturn SC2


Is it antifreeeze from heater core or heater core hose leak?  Is the leak pure water, or maybe something else?
Put it in the garage again overnight with an old white towel in the drivers foot well, best if you can find a way to stretch it from drivers seat forwar to firewall and keep it off of floor mat.  Check it before you go to bed,  then in the morning if no leak found yet.  see if the color/location of the spot helps you identify the source.  I think the heater core is under the dash center.  Anti freeze is green/yellow or orange.
good luck

Clear Oil leak on Mitsi Mirage 1989


could the clear oil actually be water?. if it is leaking out in the area around or behind the passenger side front wheel on hot days, it is probably water from your A/C, system. it has an overflow or drainage pipe, as the process of cooling the air dehumidifies it and produces water. just a guess though
