Unhappy Water leak into cabin

Had medium rainfall yesterday, I observed a minimal build up of water on the passanger side floor mat when I came back after parking the car outside for an hour. This is the first incident of this happening - as car has been driven and parked in heavier rainfall without this problem.




The phsical presence of water is represented by the dots. Water came in from somewhere, and somehow made its way ONLY to the square felt pad that the arrows are pointing to. From there it slowly dripped down onto the floor mat.

No other part of the car is wet, nor is leaking. Only drippage from this square felt pad yesterday.

Can anyone say anything about this?

Default water problem

Did you have your A/C running? If so, you know how a car drips water when the a/c is on, well, that hose could be clogged. If your A/C wasn’t running, my only guess would be some type of grommet of plug is missing underneath the car.

No, it wasnt on -- but I think it might be related to AC system
there is a blower motor near the black hose.

Remember that the A/C automatically turns on when you set the air to the defrost setting (to dehumidify the air). As noted above, your problem is most likely that the drain hose is clogged or not attached properly for the "pan" that the condensed water collects in before draining out through the hose. This is located under/behind the passenger side dash, so fits your symptoms. If you can't figure it out, take it to the dealer/mechanic. Should be a very simple fix, less than $50 from dealer.

Forgot about that. But that A/C drain hose is easy to locate from underneath the car. As far as where it is in the passenger side inside the cabin, I have never looked.
