i believe theres already 1 or 2 threads like this, sorry mods, but i just felt like i should post mine anyway, havent taken the time to read anyone elses, kinda frantic and P.O.d right now

alright well i thought the reason my passenger side carpet has been wet n stained was because of some of my asshat friends n family lol have been just going in and sometimes move the floor mat, and put there dirty boots all over n such,

well this morning i noticed water on my rubber floor mat, (was like "WTF?! :blink:") i see a liquid dropping from a certain part of the car, :notrust:
gonna take it to the dealer on monday, was goin to anyway to get the power steering issue recall fixed, anybody got any ideas?

That would be the A/C drain.

It's under the hood...on the firewall.

Let me find a pic.

Is that pinkish bleached-looking carpet also a result of this? Cause I haver the same thing under the mat right next to the passenger seat, but no leaky wet issue... :blink:
yeah i didnt notice it either, but i did notice my ugly carpet about say 2 or 3 weeks ago and just this morning my phone flew off the passenger seat, reached down to grab it and saw my car taking a leak on my floor mat :cheesy::notrust:

Have you checked your AC drain to see if it's clogged?
do you have a bigger picture, with a wider view of the rest of the car?

Vacuum cleaner/coat hanger/screwdriver...paperclip. Just something to stick in there to make sure there is nothing in there.
didnt get anything out, shoved a coat hanger in , and a thin screw driver, got nothing :unsure::sad:

hmmmm..... ok, well if it is the A/C drain like Mike says. just try running your car for a while with the A/C on and see what happens. does it run on the floor? is it draining on the ground under the car? do some investigating. also try running a garden hose down the windshield to make sure water isn't coming in through a leak somehow that way.

I'd say you should be ok with the K&N filter. that has nothing to do with a water leak.

yeah left the AC on and it started draining out under the car, but also slowly dripped out under my glovebox almost at the sametime, but not at the same speed,
under the hood at the drain, it looked like the water dripped down into whatever little cover it has on it, thats about all i noticed

i liked your response roflcraft
