KentuckyMike My newly purchased 94' YJ has the same issue, when there was a significant rain, there would be a puddle of water on my floor mat and under it too. Then when I would move the Jeep or drive it, it would run out from under the dash onto my my right foot.

I first checked the drain hose for the vent housing and when I squeezed the tip of the hose to create an opening it flushed out a wad of debris and lots of water. Then the next rain, still had a puddle of water again in the drivers floor board. I checked the drain tube again, and there as no water or debris coming out.

So, I then looked up under the dash to see that the end of the vent housing was wide open and it seems there is a missing piece from the end of the housing, such as the drivers side vent opening, maybe. There is simply a square hole on the end of the housing and and another section of the housing is above it and protrudes out towards the driver door about 3-4 inches away from the square opening.

Jmw06h Holy heck. You guys are my heros! I am so tired of getting my feet wet when I make left turns and getting my stero and underdash speakers wet. I thought I had screwed a seal up when I switched to a hard top...turn out that was also about the time of a couple fairly muddy outings...I'm trying this tomorrow!!!

mudhooligan514 I have the same problem Ill check it when I get home hopefully thats the problem. Thankz Guys

duaneduanet Glad that was the problem. To help it even more in big rains you can also add a vent scoop. Did you just take the hose off or unclog it?
02-16-2011 03:14 PM
bluejeep17 ok i posted above i wasnt sure about whether or not the hose was my problem...well anyways it poored last night for over an hour i got into my jeep this morning not sure what to expect butnot one single drop came down so happy
02-09-2011 12:20 AM
duaneduanet I had the same problem. The previous owner had taken the hose off and duct taped the drain shut.
02-08-2011 07:53 PM
joshd4 wow, now i would say that was clogged. It was more than likely your problem. Because the same little box on the drivers side is where the vent is. Its supposed to seal off but if its like mine it has some age and is not perfect so if it was puddling than it would leak water.

bluejeep17 omg thankyou guys so much, you have no idea how long ive been pulling my feet up for right turns XD i just went and cut my hose and well here's a pic of what was inside and im not even a heavy mudder.....the line was about 4 inches full....but i just did it so im not sure if this is even the problem but im sure since it must have been filling the area up like a little pool
02-07-2011 04:38 PM
birtydugger is your heater ok??...could be the heater matrix!(small radiator)...when they leak you get water in the footwell also, if it smells of anti-freeze thats the prob,..and a real pain to get at (under dash!!)
02-07-2011 04:18 PM
joshd4 Here is the tube they are talking about. Its behind the wiring just to the left of the valve cover.

Find the grill between your hood and windshield. Open your hood and, from the passenger side, you should be able to see the hose that comes from underneath that grill area. Usually, it is tapered to a slit opening at the very (bottom) end. If you can't find it, I'll try to get a pic for you today.

Desert Fox oh happy day!!!
my feet are dry again
and my floors will probably last a lot longer now.

thanks for the help

joshd4 That would be the one that they are talking about. Its on the fire wall behind the motor. It drains the cowl area while the other side has the vent opening. That is where the water is coming from more than likely. Specially if its just the drivers side.
01-31-2011 01:59 PM
Desert Fox yeah, i get puddles, i mean soaked in the floor pan area
is the tube you are talking about 3/4" in diameter with a closing slit in the bottom end of it?
i unclamped this hose and took it off from the metal fire wall fitting
the tube wasn't clogged but i am thinking maybe the slit isn't opening.

if this is even the hose you are talking about.

Tyewilly I had that problem with mine. Turned out that the bottom of the windshield frame is completely rusted out. I ran a bead of silicone across the inside of the lip of the front if the windshield seal for a temporary fix till I can replace the frame and windshield.
01-27-2011 01:32 AM
Lonster Checked the drain tube. Not that, there wasn't one. Previous owner must have taken it off.

The cowl seal is pretty dry and crumbly. I think this is the main offender.

Jeepoffroad04 happend to me last weekend all that happend was that water got into the vent infront of the windsheild you need a cover for it check out bushwackers
01-26-2011 07:26 PM
joshd4 Mine did the same thing. Of course the drain was clogged and my vent would not shut so i had to fix that. Its been cold even here in the south. lol.

spideyjeep Location tests and solutions:
1) Cowl intake. Like Lonster said, the drain tube could be clogged. Clear it or cut it.
2) Body seams around the front of the tub. Seal with some seam sealant.
3) Cowl seal where the windshield joins the body. Replace cowl seal.
4) Hinge areas. Find offending hinge; one at a time, remove bolts, coat with RTV and replace bolts.
5) Windshield Seal - start with the bottom horizontal, vertical sides, and upper horizontal. Reset windshield with new seal.
6) Firewall (engine bay) - check for water running into any holes. Seal.
