Water leaked into the passenger side but only happened when the car was in motion... after see how the drain tube was installed I noticed that while driving water would be forced against the firewall and back into the veh. I fixed this issue by installing and extender to the drain tube that faced down (at an angle)now the water didnt have a chance to back track. problem solved ..havent had a drop on the passenger side..and the Jeep now has 130k miles
After it rains the passenger side collects water which sits in the mat and soaks the carpet underneath the mat and into the back passanger floor.
A/C condensation drain sticks out about 2 inches through the firewall. It is practically horizontal. At highway speeds it is assumed airflow will not allow drainage. A hose extension with downward bend is avialable from dealer. However a short hose lenght from Home Dopot is just as effective.
Water leak on both driver and passenger sides. Only occurs when using AC.
