Question about 1997 Toyota Camry

2 Answers

There is a water leak somewhere in my 98 toyota camry that leaks into my passenger side floor. There is no sun roof and no visible leaks from the windows or doors. Any thoughts? A/C leak maybe? I hope you can help me...I do have a sunroof and know it is not the A/C...I opened the passenger door while raining and water was streaming from where the dashboard meets the frame...

This would be your Heater core. They are very cheap to purchase but not so easy to put in since you have to drop the underneath of the dashboard out and aslo have to remove the lines from inside the engine compartmnet. The water goes from the radiator through the heater core to produce the heat for your heater. You should check your radiator or overflow bottle and if the water level is low then this is definetly your problem. This is the most logical, however there could but unlikely be a leak from your windshield. The heator core is located exactly where you say the water is coming from. After reading more does this happen more times other then when it is raining?

Sounds like it may be a heater core check your radiator fluid to see if its full and see if the water inside is water or antifreeze if it is antifreeze its a heater core.

What would cause wet carpet and water on the passenger side floor


there is a leak because the foam has disintegrated, or the seal has broken open down by where the feet of the passenger is. Rust stains tell me that the leak may be caused by a break in the body somewhere.

Try spraying expanding foam in the area between the plastic and the metal parts to try to seal out moisture from coming into the passenger compartment.

Water leak rear floor driver's side as well as floor back of passenger. Drain lines from sun roof are clear. No rear end accidents. Any ideas? So far dealer cannot find a problem. 2007 Camry Hybrid


Roof drains may seem clear,but are the drain hoses,actually on the roof window frame.
Remove the head liner to be sure

Why can't the dealer use a dye type test or smoke tester. The smoke doesn't just have to be used for EVAP, that it was designed for. And you wonder why I do all my own work?

2002 Toyota RAV4 passenger side floor Water


Hi, we also have a 2002 Toyota Rav4 and developed a leak in the front driver's side of the car. After much research, we discovered that the drain wells from our sun/moon roof were clogged. If you have one of these, I suggest that you open the sun roof and look carefully. You will notice some tiny little holes in front and in the rear of the sun/moon roof tracks. Over time, these become clogged with dust and debris. You need to find a long, sturdy piece of thin wire and run it down the holes. To test if you have properly unclogged these, take a small amount of water and pour it down the holes. You should see water coming out of the drain wells under the car around the rear of the front tires. Hope this helps.

In both cases try using a garden hose and squirt water like its raining around the plenum chamber in front of the windscreen.The first asker is likely to be heater core and second asker may want to try blocking off the plenum chamber and see if the problem still appears .Regardless though a garden hose is used to locate leak and it shows up leaks in a controlled manner.

I am the original owner of camry xle 1998 with wet floors. In 2000 I had drivers side door seal leaking at welt. Removed old door seal and new weather strip on drivers side installed. The door panel was never wet, but wet at bottom of door where there are drain holes...slowly leaking under carpet.
In 2001 later water again. Coming from overflowing A/C evaporator-drain plugged/ tank full of debris. Removed evaporator, cleaned + drain cleaned.
In 2003, driver door seal against window rotted. Removed door panel and found leak at window belt molding at the mirror joint inside + out. Lots of mold under carpet needed to replace! Made a fuss at dealers for reacurring problem and they replaced the carpet for free.

Check the A/C condensate drain tube, which is under the glove box, towards the center console, going thru the firewall. If it is plugged, the water in the A/C box will have no place to go & leak onto the floor. This is a common issue, and running the A/C on the "fresh" mode compounds this problem. When the A/C is on, the water removed from the interior is supposed to drain out thru the firewall onto the street.
