My passenger side floorboards are wet

I have no idea what is causing this, but my passenger side floorboards are really wet. Its not from leaving my windows down in the rain. The passenger side back seat is much more wet than the front. At first I thought I had a leak and the rain was coming in, but the doors and seats aren't wet. Any thoughts or ideas?

The tube that drains the condensation from the A/C is stopped up. Easy fix if you can find it.

Re: My passenger side floorboards are wet [re: Mack Tripper]

Not necessarily, Bob. I have a leak in my driver side rear wheelwell (honda prelude), so when I drive in the rain water manages to come into my trunk and pool in the spare-tire well. If it builds up enough it flows into the back seat and down to my passenger side (I guess that's the way the water is being channeled). I had to take everything apart and managed to figure out where the leak was coming from, but I still don't know how to fix it.

Anyway, that's just my story, but you could do the same and see if you can force water in when the weather clears up. If you can't locate a leaking source then it might be what Bob's talking about.

Thanks. If it is the A/C drain tube, how would I go about unclogging said tube, assuming that I could find it?

In reply to:

unclogging




Jam something in it, like a piece of nylon trimmer line after you disconnect it from the evaporator case.

Another possible source of the leak is from your heater core. Does it smell sickly sweet? You may want to check your coolant level.

Re: My passenger side floorboards are wet [re: Mack Tripper]

Was there any evidence of moisture on your passenger door panel?

I've seen where debris in the door blocks the drain holes on the bottom edge and water collects within the door during a heavy rain. Open the door and look along the bottom edge. Take a wire and clear out the drain holes.

Re: My passenger side floorboards are wet [re: Mack Tripper]

This recently happened to my husband's grand cherokee.... I told him about this thread and asked him what he did to fix it. After a few seconds of silence he admitted his quick fix was to drill a small hole in the floorboard so the water would not pool..... I had to laugh.

That must be a common problem with grand cherokee's. Mine did that as well. Never knew what it was and never really cared either.

Re: My passenger side floorboards are wet [re: Mack Tripper]

Our 2001 Cherokee Laredo also has/had this problem. It's been in the shop at least half a dozen times for this issue. I don't know if they ever fixed it, though I haven't noticed it lately. The intensity of the rain as well as the slope on which the car is parked seem to make a difference.




Does this karma make me look fat?

One suggestion is to take a hose and run water over the outside of the car and see if you can find the spot where the water is coming into the vehicle. It could be a worn door or window seal, etc.

Re: My passenger side floorboards are wet [re: Mack Tripper]

Its weird because the back seat floorboard is soaked, but only the passenger side. The floor in the front is a little wet, but seems to only get wet when it rains. The doors don't seem wet. A few days ago when there was no rain, I thought it had to be some kind of drain or fluid leak, but now I'm not sure.

Re: My passenger side floorboards are wet [re: Mack Tripper]

If you have a sunroof, that is the likely culprit. Sunroofs have drains that get clogged up. Then there is leakage around the windshield, especially if the windshield has been replaced.
