Passenger floor is flooding :(

I had to cut my trip in new York short for this :( I don't have a sun roof and I searched the issue but only came up with bulletins for older models.

Its clearly leaking out of the electrical plug coming out of that heater under/behind the glove box, with possible spray through vents its hard to tell

I'm taking it in tomorrow, its a perfectly kept 2009 cobalt coupe Lt, and now I have a soaked towel trying to stop the water from pouring in

Try seeing if it is gunked up with a wire hanger in the drainage pipe located on the passenger side of the firewall. Have the AC running while doing so.

I can't say I know where that is, I know where the firewall is but if you could show me a picture that would be amazing or at least a better idea of where to find it

Sometimes leafs and debris will plug drain hole. Dead center of the picture sits the drain pipe on the firewall.

If a plastic piece is broken it will cause it to leak into the car, that's what happened to me

Hey so for 76$ my dealership lifted the car, poked a wire through somewhere on the bottom of the car, blew aire through that wire attached to an air line, and then water started pouring out like I've never seen

So its ok now, but I never expected something like this to happen the way and time that it did since my brother drives his 07 cobalt much more than me and never had that

He probably doesn't park under shady trees where blossom petals,leafs and bugs can fall
