SOURCE: passenger floor wet on s60 volvo 2002?

Sounds like a leaking heater core or faulty hose connections.
Sniff a tissue after blotting some of the wetness or; it may not sound appetizing, but to check if it is coolant + water, take a clean cloth, blot the wet spot and touch the other side of the cloth to your tongue.
Coolant doesn't have a strong odor unless it is hot but it lends a sweetness to the coolant that is easy to detect. That is why one shouldn't dump coolant on the ground since domestic animals will lap it up.

Your Heater Core is Bad= Coolant on Pass Floor
If A/C Does NOT blow Cold anymore the Evaperator Core is Leaking

Well, do you suspect rain? If not, a/c water does this. It is remarkably clean, compared to other leaks...Look for little black press on hoses about 1/2 inch in diameter...often dislodged in error by a foot or repair guy.....

This drain comes from the very bottom of the heater box areas...

SOURCE: water collects on floor behind driver's seat

Most likely the sunroof drains are clogged. It happened to mine, the floormats and floors were soaked, especially behind the drivers side. Volvo wanted to charge me $550 to clear them out and dry out the floors. Instead I took it home, rolled down the windows, parked it in the sun and let it dry out. Then I found a mechanic who blew out the drains with compressed air for only $20. He had originally quoted me $50-100, but ended up doing it for less. He said the two back drains are clogged. You can try sticking a small flexible wire down the front two yourself, then pour water down to see if it drains properly out the bottom of the car. When I looked I didn't see the two back sunroof drains, but my mechanic said they were clogged with leaves, you might be able to clear these yourself too. I would have never guessed that it was the sunroof causing this, because you don't see the water leak around the sunroof, you only see the water backing up on the floor. Don't take it to the dealership, it's a simple job and they will rip you off.

Why is the floorboard on passenger side wet? It's a 2003 gmc Yukon . We've had the AC tube blown and drained. Wat else could it be?


It is a good chance it is anti freeze from a leaking heater core. See if it smells like coolant. If so you can pull the coolant lines off the heater core in the engine bay and put them together to bypass it until it is fixed

check under drivers side carpet under fuel pedal, there should be a small black hose which is supposed to run through a hole in the floor to the outside. This is a condensation drain tube. If it is not draining it will follow channels in floor to the back drv side floor well.

The floor on the front passenger side is staying soaking wet with water the water is not dripping down on floor


Suspect leaking AC condensate drain line, unless it smells like anti-freeze, in which case its the heater core.

Wet floor


If this has happened since you started using the A/C it is probably the drain tube for the A/C. They get plugged and usually someone has to go under the car with a coathanger and open the tube up.

Vw polo drivers side floor wet, front and back?


Do you smell a sweet odor? like from the coolant in your radiator?
Your heater core may be leaking coolant into the car.
Or your front window or door seals may be leaking.
