Water Leak...Anyone? Anyone?
 
So, I am driving across the country today and after being rained on constantly from Texas to Arkansas, I notice that water is dripping into the passenger footwell from under the dash area behind the glove box...so:wtf:...Anyone? Anyone?

Aircon water.

Has the drain hose been bumped off?

Had a look up under the dash?

Yeah or sunroof drain or windshield leak?

If you hadn't mentioned it was raining I would agree air conditioning drain tube. buuuut since you mentioned it was raining at the time I'm leading towards either clogged sunroof drain tubes(common especially if you park out side near trees - pollen and leaves) or leak at the a-pillar where the grab handle is(another common leak area).

Sunroof area is dry. Windshield seal seems secure. Aircon water could be the culprit, where is drain hose? Due to the constant, road flooding, downpour, I occasionally ran over the exploded pieces of big rig tires...so I will go with the simplest explanation first. I am guessing the hose is under the vehicle, but where exactly?

I had a very similar problem when I purchased my WK. First car wash and here cam the water :eek:.

What you can do is remove the A pillar (O sh!t handle) very simple two bolts I think 10mm. The house is behind there (atleast one of the four). Then it exits out just behind the wheel well, right in front of the door jam. The best way to see it in work is to open the sunroof, grab a bottle of water, and hoop on up, you will see the catch tray in the front of the sunroof and the holes on the corners. Poor some water down there and there you go.

It rained throughout the night at the hotel I stayed at and no leakage, so, turns out to be the a/c. Where is the condensation drain valve?

Yea thats were mine was located as well. It started at the pillar and then progressed to under the dash to the left of the light that is located over the passengers feet.
