If it's just water, then the drain from the heater box may be plugged. On the lower part of the firewall on the passenger's side theres a drain tube, this may be plugged with leaves, etc. Find and clean the junk out, you will have to do this from under the car, careful as the water will drain out and get you wet.
If the " water " is coolant [ you should smell it ] then the heater core has failed and needs to be replaced.

My 1999 Lincoln Town Car did the same thing when it rained. There is a two piece plastic drain with a rubber edge that presses against the windshield.
I found (1) it had two places that were warped and not sealing against the glass.
(2) the passenger side has two plastic retaining screws and one was not holding the rubber tight against the windshield. Solution--- I cleaned the Glass and under the rubber seals then I got some Black Silicone rubber (RTV) and put a thin layer inder both sides of the rubber seals. Next I replace ths Plastic screws with stainless steel screws. --- Be carful not to tighten to tight as they only screw into a cheap retainer not the metal firewall. Also ther were leaves hidden in the Drain under a rubber flap that were not visual. I lifted the flap and stuck my finger in to pull them out. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Water coming in to front passenger floor when it rains

The heater/airconditioner box under the dash has a drain hose to allow condensation to drain when the air conditioner is running. If this hose gets plugged, rain may accumulate in this box also (if it's raining heavily), as it comes in through the fresh air intake.

Look on the engine side of the firewall, probably on the passenger side, for a hose coming through the firewall that is not connected to anything. It is usually short, has a 90 degree bend, and the open end is down. Make sure that the end of this hose is not plugged.

SOURCE: water accumulates on the floor in the passenger rear

Your heater core has sprung a leak. Coolant from the engine runs through this device, and the leak allows the coolant to leak into the passenger compartment. If you check your coolant level in the engine compartment and find it down, you will have to replace the heater core. It is definitely not an easy job, as it requires dismantling much of the components in and under the dashboard, including the airbag, and discharging the air conditioning system.

SOURCE: water is leaking in the passenger side floor when

This means your air conditioner drain tube is clogged. This will take about a hour shop rate to repair or if you look behind the glovebox you will see it. Thanks

SOURCE: water in floor on passenger side

The issue is condensation from your air conditioner not properly draining. This is usually caused by a damaged, or clogged drain hose. The condensation is supposed to drain outside the vehicle by way of a hose on the firewall area.

SOURCE: rain water leak

http://www.dodgedakotas.com/boards/dea/524.html

DodgeDakotas dot com has a lot of postngs about water under the Dakota's passenger side carpeting. My own 2005 is leaking, too. Main culprits to check: AC drain tube @ firewall (I think that some Dakotas had to have a 90-degree tube added to the outside end so that water wouldn't blow back into the cab. Great desing, Dodge. Rear window seal; Along the right-side window/roof pillar; the gromment in the passenger side door for a wire pathway. Sounds like some get this fixed under warranty - others meet w. resistance. Good Luck!

Why is there water leaking on my floor mat on the passenger side of my Rav 4


if it's just water, check the door gaskets. if it's coolant, you'll most likely need a heater core. past that, have someone spray water on the car while you look for where the water is getting in. you may need to pull the carpet back some to see.

Check the rubber around the windows and doors of the passenger side. Also, if your keys were ever locked in the car, and they used the passenger door to get in, your door could be bent but you may not be able to tell.

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.

My passenger side floor is saturated with water when it rains. When I make right turn I hear what seems like water sloshing.


Hello,
If you can smell a little bit of a sweet smell from the water on the passenger side floor, or if it has an oily film to it, you may have a leaking heater core.

They usually leak on the passenger side floor, and that might explain why you hear water sloshing around.

If you can run the engine for about 5 minutes and then turn your heater on. Look under the dash in the area where the dash meets the floor board and see if you can see anything leaking.

I hope this helps you.

Water Leak in Passenger Side Floor Vent Area after car wash


Unless this happens in the rain as well, I would not worry about it. Likely in the car wash, far more water is coming in than the normal drain system can handle, therefore causing it to overflow. If you do have a drain obstruction, find the drain hose (small right angle hose on firewall passenger side) and roll it in your fingers to clear it.
