RE-posting from Oct 22/2013 b/c i didn't see answer yet.
•water leak onto front passenger side compartment/floor-board when a/c is being used.
I saw the comment advising to use a foam sealant around HVAC unit IF leaking... Do I have to take the dash apart to get to it? Is there possibly a plastic part that may have broken? THANKS for your advice! Can i just pull up thick black capet-like material to find leak?

    the condensation pipe drains fine to the outside, does the pipe have an elbow that leads to the inside on this yr & model? maybe that's clogged and needs to be unclogged or modified or replaced? vs. possible heater core? hhhmmmm....

    For ProfessorG: I modified the condensation tube with an elbow; that seems to have been the problem like you said; now I'll just let the carpet dry out and see if that fixed the problem... THANK YOU!! Before i started trouble-shooting, Mechanics wanted to charge me $500. with varied reasons!
