The passenger floor carpet of my 2000 passport is wet but I don't know where the leak could be. nothing else in the cabin is wet, particularly the areas directly above the floor carpet


You did not indicate what sort of climate you live in or exactly where the carpet in the cabin was most wet...

However, the most common source of water inside a car is a clogged HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) drain tube. This tube provides drainage for water condensing on the AC evaporator and any water that enters the HVAC system during rain storms. If the tube is clogged with dirt and debris the water drips from underneath the dash where the heat vents are ... onto the floor instead of dripping onto the road. So usually the wettest place on the carpet is the front passenger foot well.

The drain tube is generally located on the firewall, low on the passenger side. You would probably have to raise the car to see/reach it. I am not sure exactly where the Passport one is ... they can be hard to find at times.

Other possible sources of water are a clogged sunroof drain tube, leaking window seals, torn or missing door seals, and clogged door drain holes.

Also ... buildup of debris (pine needles/leaves) where the windshield wipers retract in to can also block those drains which can sometimes cause overflow into the passenger compartment.

After you find and eliminate the source of the water you will have to lift the carpet and remove the padding underneath in order to dry it. The padding holds water like a sponge and will not dry unless it is removed from the vehicle. Shop vacs won't get the water out of the padding. Even if the carpet feels dry the padding underneath may still be wet, and that is where mold and mildew grows.

Helpful?

Good luck on your troubleshooting

Any suggestions of what it could be without incurring hours of labor charges for a shop to look for the leak?


It's coming from your circulation vent,have it set on recirculation,that way the out side vent is closed,will cause carpet to mold underneath.

Carpeting wet from underneath


The slots in the cowl at the base of the windshield collect water and direct it down through channels in the front door pillars to drain under the van. The channels can become clogged with leaves and debris, causing water to back up inside and drain onto the carpet. The cure is to open the front doors and examine the "pocket" behind the lower hinge. You will see the debris. A repurposed metal coat hanger or similar tool will help clear the blocked channel.

My 1983 Ford Tioga motorhome is leaking when I try and fill up the water tank. It has been sitting for 10 years and I can't tell if the leak is from the water tank or the old tubes. Where shoul


If water is getting under the carpet its probably the tank or a fitting on the tank.
I don't know of a way to find out unless you remove the tank to see under it.

The front passenger (right side) carpet is soaking wet. No other part of the carpet is wet, just this area. Can you advise if it is an AC condensation leak? The water is fresh, not radiator fuid or...


Could be several things:-

1) Pollen filter blocked, needs changing.

2) Sunroof drain blocked, my car is different but the sun roof drains down a tube which eventually goes down the rear of the front wing. There's one both sides. To clear, take the wheel off, take the inner wing shroud out and clean all the mud that has built up underneath it, Then make sure the tube is clean.

3) Faulty door seal, check your door frame seals.

With heavy rains the carpet on my passenger side front is soaked


SOUNDS LIKE THERE IS A LEAK COMING FROM SOMEWHERE! COULD BE A SOFT PLUG ON THE FIREWALL UNDER THE HOOD! IF IT IS REMOVED, WATER WILL ENTER THE CAB THERE! OR POSSSIBLY UNDER THE CAR ON PASSENGER SIDE! IF IT IS UNDERNEATH, THE TRIM, AND CARPET WILL HAVE TO BE RAISED TO REPLACE THE PLUG FROM UNDER THE CARPET!

Interior Carpet Getting Wet


It sounds like a plugged drain line from the air conditioner. Most cars now run in the a/c mode whenever u turn on the climate control (even when heat is on). The passenger side front is where it would be wet, and the carpet and carpet pad act like a sponge and will soak up the water. Let me know how u make out.
