There is a drain. If you can access the heater/air assembly the hose and evaporator pan can be cleaned and sealed. I just don't know how to do every model car.

How do I replace the cabin air filter?


Cabin Air Filters are usually located behind the passenger glove compartment. Remove that and you should find your cabin air filter.

I am getting a lot of water on drivers side floor board when it rains. I have cleaned the air vents below the cowl vent.


Could be leaves and detritus blocking the ventilation air box water drains.

Could be, if the car has a sunroof, the water drain from the sunroof trough. There is generally four drainpipes - running from each corner of the sunroof trough to each corner of the floor of the passenger compartment.
When I service a car I open the sunroof and pour a jug of water into the trough to ensure all four are clear. They sometimes become blocked, perished or dislodged from the outlets onto the ground.

If the water source isn't really easy to discover it is almost certain to be really difficult. With body water ingress there is hardly any happy medium.

Air conditioner works good.but water leaks back into carpet on passongerside dash.ruins carpet and smells.any help appreciated.


There is a drain hose that is probably plugged. Under the hood, but close to infront of the passengers feet. It's low and a little hard to find, but a good chance it has mud or dirt in it.

Is it normal for a car to drip water on the ground after running the air conditioner?


Yes, The air conditioner evaporator core inside the vehicle is very cold when the a/c is operating and moisture will condense on the outside of it, especially on a humid day. This moisture then trickles down the sides of the core and collects in the plastic housing beneath the core where it then escapes through the evaporator housing drain tube and drips on the ground beneath the passenger side of the chassis. The more humidity in the air the more moisture you will see dripping onto the ground. If the little drip hose should ever get plugged up this water then will overflow the housing and drip on the passenger side carpet so if you ever have that problem you'll know what the cause is.

2006 hummer h3 has a leak on passenger side under the dash during a rain storm


My 06 was leaking during rain also. It turned out to be the sunroof. There are two drain tubes in the front of the sunroof that run the water down the corners to the ground and two drain tubes that drain water out the back corners. The water would seep around the glass, which is expected, but both of the tubes on the front of mine were plugged, and the water would overflow behind the dash and fill my floorboards. If my H3 was leaning to the left during a storm then the drivers side would be full of water. If leaning right, then the passenger side. I had to open sunroof and blow compressed air into the drain holes to clear them, but be careful, too much air will separate tubes from sunroof and then you will have to remove the inside paneling around sunroof to get to tubes and reconnect. You may only have one side plugged. you can test it by opening sunroof and pour a little water in the small catch pan in the front of the sunroof and see if it drains as expected (to the ground under the firewall on left AND right side). You can see the holes in each corner of catch pan to drain the water. Plug one with your finger, then the other to find the plugged side. Good luck!! Hope this helps!!

Air conditioning


Run the A/C, and look under the vehicle for water to be seen dripping out on the road. If no water is dripping, you have a blocked A/C condensate drain tube. This drains the water that the A/C removes from the air in the pass compartment (humidity), and drains it outside of the vehicle. Look under the dasjh, pass side, towards the center. The tube runs thru the body. It must be clean or water will back up and eventually leak inside your vehicle.
