Q: Water linking only into the passenger side soaking the carpet.

asked by on October 02, 2016

I have a Hyundai Sonata GLS 2011, we just changed the cabin filter today because it was starting to smell and low air flow. But another problem that is happening is that the passenger side, the carpet is getting wet and even soaked. Could that have been caused by the cabin filter being overdue? Should it stop now that we changed the filter or should we check for further issues.

My car has 63000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
