(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]@ yahoo.com

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 said...be 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.

Drain tube for your AC likely has debris or possibly a bug has made a home in there. Have it cleaned and see if it still drains.

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.

2005 MITSUBISHI ECLIPSE AIR CONDTIONER IS LEAKING WATER ON FLOOR BOARD AND NO WATER UNDERNEATH ON GROUND


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.

Floor board wet drivers side. No drain tube for ac condensor. Not losing radiator water. Ac condensor not draing to outside. No tube on firewall. 4.2 dohc model


all of dodge models have a drain tube you'll find it over the rack n pinion on the right side passenger but you have to see when does the water comes in the floor board, when you use the AC or when it rains if it's the AC then it's you drain if it's when it rains then you have to check for leaks on your windshield or fire wall

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.
