97 jeep wrangler when running ac passenger side front floor board get wet whats up can anyone help?
The drain passage for the AC Evaporator is plugged. This causes
the box under the dash to build up condensation (water) & flood
the floor. You need to open up the lower dash & clean out the
box & drainhole. If you don't, mold & mildew will grow.

The customer may experience a wet front passenger floor or floor
carpet. This condition
may occur due to water (A/C condensate) from the HVAC assembly
drain tube. As A/C
condensate leaves the HVAC drain tube, it may run back along the
outside of the HVAC
drain tube, enter the passenger compartment, and run under the
front floor carpet on the
passenger side. This condition may occur most often while the
vehicle is being driven.
Inspect for the source of the water leak. Determine if the
passenger side of the front floor
carpet is wet because of air conditioning condensate from the
HVAC drain tube. Inspect
the HVAC assembly drain tube for the presence of a drain hose.
If a HVAC assembly drain
hose is not present, and the A/C condensate from the drain tube
is the cause of the water
leak, then perform the Repair Procedure.

1. Inspect the HVAC drain tube. Clean out any debris or other
restrictions in the drain.
2. Install a HVAC drain hose onto the HVAC drain tube. Once
assembled to the HVAC
drain tube, make sure the open end of the drain hose is facing
towards the ground.
3. Install a tie strap around the drain hose to secure the hose
to the HVAC drain tube.
NOTE: Inform the customer to regularly inspect the new HVAC
drain hose for debris,
especially when off-road driving is performed JEEP PASSENGER
SIDE LEAKS Beside the Service Bulletin for the clogged A/C drain,
another source of leaks is attributed to the air intake box for the
heater/ac. To access, remove the wiper blades and remove 4 screws
on cover just aft of the hood. Open the hood and slide the hood
seal (on the aft bulkhead) to expose 2 additional screws. Remove
the tray and the intake box will be on the passengers side. Remove
the 3 screws securing the box and remove. Look down into the intake
and you will see water in the box if the foam seal on the cover is
leaking. I applied silicone sealant on the foam gasket and a bead
around base, as well as covering the screw holes. Re-install the
box and secure. Wipe excess silicone to assure a seal around the
box. No mores leaks.
