why would i have water leaking inside the passenger footwell?

Asked by Jul 06, 2014 at 10:17 PM about the 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The floor is soggy under the passenger side.  I think it leaks when AC is on and not when its off.............also seem to have a squeal sound when turning left BUT seems to be only when AC on.  I'm confused!  Susan

There is a drain tube running from under the dash to the underside of your car to drain the condensation from the ac unit under the dash. If that tube is stopped up it will leak into the footwell. Look under the vehicle along the firewall and locate the open ended tube. Have someone shoot some compressed air up the tube it will unstop it and allow it to drain under your vehicle as it should.

Sorry I been out of town. The firewall is the metal between the cab of the vehicle and the motor. It starts at the base of your front windshield and goes down behind the motor to the frame of the car.
