Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

Why would the front floor on the passenger side of a 1997 Jeep Gran Cherokee be wet all the time?

Hey Edmund==If you are loosing coolant, it is the heater core leaking. If you aren't loosing coolant, it is the a/c drain that is stopped up. Get under it and look up on the pass side of the firewall just under the evaporator case and you should see a drain that is stopped up. Be careful as the evaporator core is about 1 inch above the case and can be damaged by a sharp object. goodluckJoe

the water is from the evaporator due to a plugged drain..on the Jeep Grand Cherokee modles 93-98 you cannot see the drin hole from under the hood ..due to it drains in the fram rail there is a tsb to pull down the pass front carpet and you will see the bottom of the ac/heater housing that comes down to a v shape and a round tip the fix is to drill through the center of the round area and blow compressed air through it and and insert a plug you can get from a dealer i am a jeep tech for a dealer and performed this Chrysler repair many times ot only takes about 10mins to perform note be sure to drill in the center of the round area this is the back side of the drain

in the floor board on the front passenger side. If you were sitting in the front passanger seat it would be right next to your right foot. There is a panel that you have to pull off.

If it's the front passenger side ,I would say your heater core is leaking .

The side kick panel is to the right of the floor where the passengers feet would be.

On a 2002 Protege5, it's on the front 'slope' of passenger-side floor.... where your feet would rest if you put them all the way forward. In the '5', you have to take the 'kick guard' plastic off the front-passenger-side of the center console, then peal back the floor carpet. There is the big-ass silver cover/guard protecting it. Not sure if your car would be exactly the same.

try looking under the passenger side front end from the ground, there may be a plastic shield covering it (where u would wire up fog lights)

I am not sure, but I would guess it would be near the floor board of the front passenger seating area. It's behind the glove compartment which has to be removed...20- 30 minutes.

yesmy 2000 jeep wrangler has cherokee srings instead of its stock springs it lifts it a little and rides great and is a direct fit

It shows in my manual that when the passenger door is open it is opposite the passenger door near the Glove box, but mine was not there, it is at the right kickpanel where a passenger's right foot would normally be. or you could just look harder!

Are you sure it is coolant?I would gues heatercore if it leaked regardless of the A/C. But it sounds more like the condensation is not escaping and leaking in because of a plugged line maybe.

Sounds like heater core is leaking and what you are seeing is antifreeze

There are two fuse boxes on this vehicle. The Passenger compartment fuse box is located at the lower right kick panel on the passenger side near the floor board. (Basically right where the passengers right foot would res ton the floor.) The Engine Compartment fuse box or Central Junction Box is located near the right fender. ( Facing the vehicle it would be a black box with a snap lid on the left hand side of the engine.)

== == Could be the transmission, or a front brake is sticking on.

Water on the passenger side floor would be a plugged up AC drain. The drain is located under the hood, at the lowest point on the HVAC box on the firewall. However if the floor is wet with engine coolant, the heater core is leaking.

I would check my passenger door seal, the windshield seal, and also the drainage for the grills in the area in front of the windshield.

in front of the center console on the floor mat

If it's all wheel drive, there is no spare unless the add-on has been installed. You would find it inside the rear hatch in that case and you would'nt be asking. If it's front wheel drive, it will be under the passenger side floor, adjacent to the sliding door. And if you want to release the tire,there is a big bolt right in the middle of the passenger side middle row. There is a flap on the carpet floor, open it and you will be able to see the bolt. Tools are in the back, on the passenger side, behind a plastic flap.

The ac drain is plugged. The drain hose is on the firewall on the lower passenger side. ...that, or your heater core is leaking.

A Cherokee would have the AW4. A Grand Cherokee would have a 44RE.

It's located at the front of the passenger front fender, inside the plastic splash shield. You would need to remove the horn to get to it.

The source of the water is probably from faulty or failed window seals surrounding your front & rear windsheilds.

If its anything like my 2000 Wrangler, there's a switch on the floor just in front of the shifter. You just insert your ignition key into it and turn toward "off". Your best bet would be to check your manual though.
