Q: We have a/c condensate leaking back into the passenger floor board.

asked by on

Is there anything besides a clogged drain that could be causing this and how exactly do you reach the drain to unclog it?

My car has 100000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hey there. The drain is likely the only reason for the flooding onto the floor. To access it, you’ll need to locate the drain on the passenger side just inside the frame on the firewall.
