 Never Stop Improving - White

Hey, you're in the vehicle / car zone--YOUR HANDYMAN ZONE!

Cars / Trucks / Vans Category: Miscellaneous Informational Topics

Informational Topic:

Leaking / seeping water enters the passenger side of the vehicle when the air conditioner is turned on, what's causing this?

The Information You Need:

If, after turning on the air conditioner/AC in your vehicle, you find water to be leaking into

 

the passenger side of your vehicle, which you likely noticed because that side of the vehicle's interior carpet is wet, you should focus your attention on the evaporator area of your air conditioner.  As a normal course of air conditioning, the evaporator of the air conditioner, though a drainage tube and the operation of a check valve (that opens to let water out) drains excess water that ultimately exists underneath your vehicle as opposed to having such water detrimentally build up and ultimately let loose inside your vehicle.  Because the latter is happening, which shouldn't be happening--i.e., excess water is being kept in the vehicle to the extent it's leaking into the passenger side--the following may be probable causes of this vehicle problem that you should consider checking:

  • The drainage tube of the evaporator is clogged or otherwise damaged;

  • The evaporator check valve may be malfunctioning; or

  • The vehicle's seals, particularly the one placed between the cowl and evaporator case of your vehicle, may be worn out or otherwise damaged.

Any one of the above can be the cause of your vehicle's problem, so it would be best to pay attention to the above probable causes when attempting to diagnose and fix the problem.
