Rained heavily last week and the following day I noticed the driver’s side footwell mat (I have a rubber winter mat there) had water trapped in the ridges. Bummed out, I thought maybe the solution to the leak I’d fixed years ago had given up and had opened up again …but no, that wasn’t it.
Having a quick look around in the footwell I could see a drip coming from the rubber heater connecting hose, so I pulled back the carpet to get to the drain tubes.
When I unblocked the tube, a full litre (quart-ish) of cleanish water drained out.
This was a bit of a shocker as it was only about a month ago I’d swapped out BOTH blowers …Now I do have the A/C on auto all the time and I do drive about an hour and a half every day but that amount of condensate does seem a bit much in a month?
Can water get into the heater from a heavy rain?
