I've had this happen with several of my cars and what it inevitably turned out to be was a clog in the evaporator drainage hose. The moisture that condenses in your evaporator casing should drain out through a hose that leads out under your car but if the hose gets clogged that water backs up and ends up on the carpet inside your car. Sometimes its a bit of a hassle to get to but with a bit of work you can usually use a bit of wire or a pipe cleaner to clear it out. If you can crawl under your car, its also possible and sometimes easier to get at it from the there.

I had it into the shop but they could not find the cause. Someone told me it might be the sunroof drain that sometimes clogs

How do I remove the dashboard of a 2004 Holden berina


the condenser is out side the car in front of the radiator. the unit inside the car is the evaporator and doesn't leak as it is gas filled.
the problem is that moisture is formed on the evaporator fins and this is collected in the bottom of the ac box and drained off out through a hose near the transmission or engine ( puddle of water on the road at lights). The drain hole in the ac box fills up with gunk and the water collected flows out under the carpet. Cleaning the hose and outlet will fix that problem Dash units are held in place by bolts next to the door openings ,across the top at the base of the windscreen and the steering column bolts. To get some idea of how they are fitted go to a wrecker and see how they are done.

Leak under dashboard


The only fluids under the dash are coolant that circulates through the heater core, or if you have a manual transmission a failed clutch master cylinder can leak brake fluid under the dash right where clutch pedal is located. If the heater core is leaking, it usually shows up on the passenger side. If it is just plain water, you need to check how rain water could be getting in past the firewall and under the dash.

Strange coolant leak from 09 Nissan Sentra.


It could be leaking from the heater core, under the carpet an down the side of the car??? Definately a weird one, i would suggest a cooling system pressure test, this will help pinpoint the location easier.

All fluids fine and no exterior weather ect. ? passanger side front carpet is wet. No spills and no obvious oder. Could it be an A/C issue or something else. Thanks.


If you know for sure it is not leaking in from the windshield molding, then the only other thing that would cause a leak in the passenger side carpet is a leaking heater core or hose.They can be a pain to find and get to but it is all contained up under the dash on the right side.You just need to tear it all out under the dash and then lay on the floor on the passenger side and look and run the engine until it is hot and then turn on the heater and change it from hot to cold and then watch for the leak.

Water leaking under dash on the passengers side of 2000 xterra


Only 2 things this can be. The air conditioner drain is plugged, or the heater core is leaking. If the water smells loke antifreeze then the heater core is leaking and needs replaced, if no smell then the AC drain is plugged. You can acces this from und3er the vehichle, should be a small tube near the firewall to drain outside the cab, just runn a wire up in it and see if something comes out like moldy water!

I have a 2003 Nissan Pathfinder and the driver side floorboard gets wet under the carpet when it rains. I have had the car for 5 months and it never happened until now when there is more rain. I assume...


It's possible that the seal around the windshield is leaking and the water is trickling in behind the dash area where it is very difficult to see. These leaks can be very difficult to pinpoint and often I've just had to eliminate every other possibility first before finally pulling the glass to find the exact source of the leak. It's a bit of a job but if you can't find the leak then try removing the carpet, insulating pad, and seats completely from the front, dry off the floor, then have someone sit inside with a bright flashlight looking for a leak while you run water over the doors, windows, windshield, and sunroof [if equipped] and you'll most likely find the culprit. It's also a good idea to get the carpet fully dried out so it doesn't get musty and smelly plus it will eventually cause the floor to rust if left wet. Good luck, hope you find your leak!

When air con on in my car water leaking down the front passanger side making very smelly carpet any way of fixing problem someone said drain need unblocking where is the drain


The drain is supposed to come out under the car, passenger side, ahead of the dashboard area. If yours is clogged, that's where you need to look once you're under the car. You should see a tube pointing forward or down, sticking through the firewall - that's it.

1992 Nissan Maxima V6. Water is dissapering. No


Check for Leak in your Heater Core... ie; Passanger Side floor board. up the carpet to the Firewall and behind the center Console. If this is a Slow leak the carpet might not show wet. Check the padding under the carpet.
