Water on the floor?

Hey guys,

I need your help. I have a 2002 sahara. I took it on a 12 hour road trip thru CO. When I got home I noticed alot of water standing on the passenger side floor board and the plastic tucked under the glove box was wet. Besides taking it to the shop, any ideas as to what to look for and a fix? I have been having a problem with the air flow control knob, would accidently leaving the ac on for an extended time cause that problem?

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

There should be a hose on the passenger side that runs under the dash and thru the fire wall to allow condensation to pass thru. make sure it has not gotten knocked loose.

Thanks, I'll be checking that. Also the drain hose maybe plugged, I guess.
Not much into being a mechanic, but if I don't do it right I guess the shop will have another customer. LOL

Also, air often blows up that hose while you're driving and forces condensation from the a/c to back up into the tube and overflow into the passenger compartment.

I'd both clean out the hose and attach a short 90 degree angle piece to it which will eliminate air flow from forcing water back up the tube. That latter issue is pretty common and is cured with that short 90 degree rubber elbow.

Thanks for all your help guys!!

Problem fixed. I ran a thin piece of flexible wire into the drain hole, from inside the engine compartment, through the fire wall into the housing unit under the dash, then I made a make shift reducer hooking it up to my shop vac and held it to the hole in the firewall, hoping to pull whatever was making the blockage out of the way.

After I did that I turned on the ac for a while and sure enough water started dripping onto the ground thru the hole. I ran it for over an hour to make sure it would continue to work right, it did.

JB,

I'll try that also may also prevent future problems!!
