When using the A/C the drivers side floor board fills with water. There is no water on the ground under the car as you would expect.
when running the ac water leaks on the floor on the passagner side and the back foor on the same side what i need to do to fix this problem.
I just bought my car and i noticed that there is puddles of water on the driver side floor starting from the front under the gass and break peddlel, but there are no leaks under the car. What could this be?
Same problem, but I can not locate the evaporator drain hose. This Stratus has the 3.0. engine and auto transmission.
Water puddled under driver side feet. Very wet! No water underneith car, just on driver's side floor board.
all right side of the car front and rear completely wet 1 inch of water
this should be factory recall
will not buy this brand again
piece of s...t
no solution. I will take to the dealer now. I tried to clear the drain tube twice, the last time I took it to a repair shop and they put it on a lift and showed me the drain tube. It is draining so nothing more can be done here. The floor is soping wet all the time. The carpet is now ruined stained brown, and stinks.
This model has a procedure at Crysler that call for a repair kit that they use in theie shop. Cost will high I'm sure but I like the car, so here goes.
I live in South GA and run the AC constantly in the summer time. Every summer the AC drain gets clogged and water builds up in the passenger floor board. I have measured as much as 2.5 inches in the rear passenger floor.
well i got the old water in the floorboard of the rr passenger they sell a 15.00 kit and charge 150 to 175 to put it in why isn't there a recall for this issue!!!!!&%$^_no more chrysler products for me
Water leaks inside the car; usually near the front driver feet, also drivers side back seat area. All clear on the passenger side.
leak in rear somewhere. It appears as a puddle of water on rear left passenger floor. Cannot find where t is coming from. Mechanic hubby things it may be air conditioning leak.
Ate a rain water accumulates on drivers side floor board.I have place a bucket in my car and not one drop of water will be in that bucket!!Not wet anywhere that I can feel but that puddle will be where my feet will be.Love my car but have to have this problem fixed!!!!!!!
A/C drain clogged up. I fixed it a couple of times by using blow gun on air compressor to blow into the drain tube under the car. The water flowed out immediately after blowing it. Eventually whatever is floating loose in there clogged it up and it has been clogged up sense. Very aggravating indeed!!
1st I noticed my driver side heater quit working but the passenger side works great & then when it got warm enough to use the AC it's working fine on both sides but I noticed my driver floorboard is getting soaked & it'll flow to the back driver floorboard. Its literally like a water puddle in my floorboards.
