Wet floormat on front passenger side

I can't figure out where the water is coming from. Anyone else had this experience?

Definately a heater core problem.

My Gf's 01 sedan was draining hot water on her legs and floor. Naturally we thought it was the heater core. After the mechanic got done looking he found the condensor drain was plugged causing built up water to drain into cab. This was just my experience.

On early models, water can leak past the cowl seal on the windshield, and drip right into the cabin blower intake, ending up on the passenger floor.

If the heater core was leaking, you'll get a sweet smell, and the moisture on the floor will feel oily.......that's a heater core leak (which I doubt in this case).

Or maybe a plugged evaporator drain line? Thats what i've seen most often. It would be leaking coolant if the heater core was leaking.

I also agree with bluefront. Mine did the same thing until I sealed the cowl panel to the windshield.

water on passenger floor.

for the first week i owned my zx3 did the same thing.

under the windsheild, above the hood where that plastic cover is theres a catch pan to stop the water going conviently in your cabin air box which send the water right into your blower...mine was fried, fixed now but its getting colder here in NH.
