The water leaking is caused by the evaporator drain being stopped up. Look under the car in the area of the firewall on the passenger side and try to find the end of a rubber hose the water is supposed to drain from. Clear it out with air pressure.

The leaves will usually work their way in from the fresh air intake below the wipers. Keep it cleared off to prevent them from getting to the fan.

Drain hole for air conditioner


Yes there is a drain at the bottom of the blower motor squirrel cage blower case, it drain out into the ground from a tube at the base of the firewall on the passenger side. I suggest you remove the blower and clean out the mouse nest or leaves that you will find are plugging up the drain.

Leaking on the right side under the car they told me it might be the evaporator but I don't know where that is in my car I have a 1997 Ford Expedition, I don't even know what it looks like


The evaporator is located in the heater box, it is the AC's equivalent of a heater core. Water is a NORMAL by product of refrigeration, and the clear water must leak out to the ground.

I have a water leak on the passenger seat from my ford escort 1999 ac


One of two things have happened. Either the AC drain is clogged and condensation water is leaking into the passenger comparment or.... the notorious ford escort heater core is leaking. (I had an escort for 7 years and changed the heater core 2 times. Metal core with plastic end caps. Both of mine leaked at a corner of the end cap. Not a fun job to swap out a heater core either......

Check the wire connections at the blower motor and fan resistor, they are located under dash on passenger side. They sometimes have corrosion that burns the plastic connector. The resistor is responsible for all fan speeds below high. Hope this helps, let me know.

Where do I find the air conditioner drain tube


The air conditioner condensation drain is under the hood not inside the car. The fluid is probably a leaking heater coil. It is located on the passenger side firewall.

Water in the Heater system


On the engine side of the firewall you need to find the small rubber drain hose. it is likely plugged up. dont stick anything hard in there or you can damage stuff inside the heater box.

Air conditioner leaks (drains)into the front passenger seat floor mat


The a/c drain tube will be located on the firewall. It will be on the passenger side twards the bottom of the firewall. It will be about 3/8 inch in diameter, and about 1-2 inches long sticking out of the firewall. You will probably need to get under the vehicle to gain acess.
