Hi there. Water leaks can come from various sources: a clogged drain tube in the AC/Heater box can cause overflow through the heater vent, or faulty cowling can cause water ingress into the passenger compartment. Once the source is found, then a repair can be formulated. The best way to find the source is to have one of our mobile mechanics come to your location and complete a leak inspection, so they can determine how to repair this issue.
