Reposition the air conditioner slightly. Tilt the window unit to where the water will run towards the backside and the problem will be solved.

What can cause floor in the back, (behind the front passenger seat) to be soaked with water (& I mean SOAKED) ?


I assume there are no leaks in the windows or sunroof.
One probable cause, is the Air Conditioning unit. On all cars there is a drain line for the AC unit. As a unit runs, it produces condensation. (Just as a bottle of cold water produces condensation in a warm, humid area). That water has to go somewhere, so there is a drain at the bottom of the system. That drain (which comes out under the car, usually centered under the dashboard area), can become clogged or pinched and leave the water to accumulate in the system base, (again inside the car, under the dash). When this happens, the water will seep under the carpet and find the lowest area, which in this case, is the floorboard in the back seat area.

I have a sharp window AC unit, model af-609x. does it have a drain hole? there is no water coming out of it, but when we take it out of the window we get soaked from water somewhere inside the unitl


All window air conditioners will remove moisture from the air if there is any. Most window air conditioners collect this moisture in the bottom pan of the air conditioner and attempt to evaporate the moisture. The evaporation process works as follows: First, the water drips down off of the cold evaporator coils on the front of the unit. Then the water collects in the bottom of the air conditioner base, the "pan." If the air conditioner is installed properly it will be tilted slightly back.

The water then collects near the back of the unit. On some units, the fan blade used to cool the rear condensing coils will have a rim on the outside of the fins of the blade. This rim, or "slinger," will come close to touching the inside of the air conditioner pan when the fan is spinning. As the water collects in the pan and reaches the depth necessary for the fan ring to touch it, the ring will lift some of the water up and the fan will blow it at the condensing coils. Because the coils are warm, they will evaporate the moisture to the outside.

While this is happening it is normal to hear water splashing and sloshing around. As long as there is no water leaking inside the room that is being cooled there is no cause for concern.

Never drill into the bottom of and air conditioning unit to "let the water out."

if you have air condition,check in the engine compartment on the fire wall under the air condition for a drain hose it may be blocked and that is causing the water to backup and leak inside the car.

Water on the front driver side floorboard


It's not the air conditioning because the problem happened after a rainfall. The air conditioning would cause a wet rug while the air is on and it is very warm and humid outside. Then I could see a plugged drain causing the issue. It may be a leak around the windshield area or sunroof if you have one.
Start your car and put your fan on high. close the windows and doors. Spray a soap and water solution around the outside of the car starting around the windshield area. Look for bubbles forming. When you find the bubbles you found your leak.

It is normal for water to collect in the lower base of an air conditioner. See the section entitled: "There is water sloshing around inside." If water leaks out the front it is usually because the unit is tilted forward in the window frame. All air conditioners should be installed so they tilt slightly back to allow for proper removal of the condensation collected.
