Water on floor

Sounds like a plugged vent. Under the hood on the passenger side under the car there should be a tube that attaches to the vent. I believe there is also one to the A/C unit as well.

Recently when it rains water shows up in the carpet on the driver side only. This started about 2 weeks ago. It only leaks when it rains. It will soak up a large towel in just a few hours if raining hard. The car has a sunroof of which the seals look good. I pulled the plastic cover on the windshield and checked the seal, which looked good and without cracks. Are there any drains that run behind the fire wall that may be clogged or anywhere else I should look?

Thanks,
Jason

Hi Jason,

For water leaks the best method to use is to lift up the carpets and use a garden hose to simulate rain by testing from the lower portion to the upper portion and watching for water entry.

Since you have a sunroof, check if the drain hose at kickpanel is dislodged and water is being channelled into the cabin. Check for dislodged wire harness grommets.

When AC ON and doing left turn is leaking water inside the car by the driver passenger seat. What could be the reason?

Hi hhendy,

Most probably the evaporator drain hose is clogged and condensation water collected in the evaporator housing is splashed out when making turns.

I have a 1990 Honda Accord with 152K on it. And it is retaining water in the passenger side floorboard, moreso in the rear passenger side. A mechanic told me that it is from the condenser and is overflowing the drip pan. So I think the drain in the drip pan may be clogged and I was wondering how to unclog it if possible. If anyone has any ideas please let me know. Thanks alot

I offer this but it is not much. You need to go under the passenger side of the car, somewhere above the axle. There should be a tube hanging. You will need to push something like a wire up inside to breakup the obstruction. Don't be surprised if it plugs again and you have to repeat the process.

I have replaced taillight gaskets, two rubber gaskets behind the back bumper (took it through the car wash and had a friend look through the back seat to find out where it was coming from) and then theres a vent type thing on the driver side in the back that we also replaced. After all this took it back through the car wash and it still leaked. So we took all the carpet out of the car along with paneling and such. Found out that the leak was now coming from the front where the hood release cable went in the side panel. Now we have checked all of these again and non of them are leaking. We can not fine where it is leaking from. Any suggestions. Oh and we have checked the sunroof drain pipes also.

It could be leaking from the windshield, spray lots of soapy water outside the windshield moldings and apply compress air inside around the windshield edges to see if there is any leak.

I dont think it would be the windshield. It was replaced. And it leaked before and after. So unless I just have bad luck I dont think thats it

Hi blackbeard01449,

If you have not removed the distributor cap, take it off to dry out. Do not unplug the wires without marking them to avoid confusion when installing.
