(2000 Eclipse water in driver floorboard after rain) Standing with the driver door open pour a pitcher of water over the sunroof enough that spills over onto the roof and then rolls down the windsheild...all down the side of the windshield - not toward the fresh air intakes. Water may drip from underneath the fuse housing cover. If so, pull that off continue to pour water. It will probably be coming out of the plastic (interior) cover of the cieling post dripping. The black plastic band that rounds over the roof from the top of the back window to the base of the windsheild actually shifts from back to front about 2 inches total - the passenger side doesn't move at all. Some of the clips may be broke or something.
Duct taping up the side of the windshield and making sure to cover the small hole at the top were that strip overlaps the windshield strip prevented water from coming into the floardboard. Now its either find more clips to hold it better or some adhesive/silicone to lock it into place and test again. - [email protected]@

What it is is your A/c drain valve if you press the close vent button it should stop, but to fix it, it needs some sort of 90 degree rubber hose...because the problem is once you drive the air pushes the water back into the car, thus the 90 degree hose of some kind so the air cannot push in horizontally and allows the water to drip on to the ground...I hope that made sense, that or it might be your heater core...but more than likely its what I creative I used the rubber housing of the spark plug wire...

A/c leaking water passenger floor

Usually a sign of a plugged drain tube.
The HVAC box has a tube that drains the water onto the ground.
The tube should be at the bottom of the firewall near the passenger floor.

I have a 2008 Elantra, and water is dripping on the passenge side floor. I suspect that the AC drain tubing is blocked. Also a swooshing noise can be heard when making a sharp left hand turn. How can I...

They can be hard to find. Do you remember where the water dripped on your driveway after parking. That's where the water came from. It will be in the area of the firewall since that's where the evaporator is located. It may drip on the frame and run down from there so you'll have to get under there when the engine is not hot and use a flashlight to look everywhere. If you're lucky a little water will still drip helping you find it. Blowing through the drain hose is the best way to clear it. Compressed air is even better.

02 taurus condensation pools in right floor, just need to know how to fix. Its not the rain.

Look under the car, under the right floor board toward the front for a small rubber tube, this is the a/c condensate drain tube, it coould be on the right side firewall under hood close to the bottom. Dirt wasps love to build nests inside these tubes, they become plugged and the condensate runs inside on your floor board on the right side, to clear it, grab ahold of it and squeeze it along the length and gently twist it back and forth, then operate the a/c and see that water is coming out of it. Hope this helps, let me know.

How do i clear water tube drain

Compressed air works great. You will need an attachment on the air line with a 'trigger' to turn air on. Garages and dealers would have this, do you know anyone with a compressor? I've done a couple of times, works great.

Sounds like a plugged evaporator drain. Pretty common on these cars as many did not have cabin filters.

Ideally you should pull the evaporator box and clean it out, but for a quick fix you can shoot compressed air into the drain tube to clear the blockage.

The drain tube is in the engine bay, on the firewall just above the steering rack, nearer the drivers side. You will need to pull up on the firewall mat/fabric to see it.

Water building up on ps side floor board in 1996 jgc

Your water problem is caused by a cloged a/c drain. Under the hood on the pass. side firewall you can see a small tube coming out of the firewall (look towards the bottom). Take a coat hanger and try to clear out the drain, this will solve the problem. You should get a good amount of water come out.

A/ not draining, dumping water into Pass/side floor board. Can't find a drain? No visable tube or drain in firewall seems to drip some from the hole in the chassie. Where is the drain?

Go under the car and clear the condensation drain, it low almost the bottom of firewall on passenger side, it is a tube sticking out.
