So, I have a condensate drip in the passenger footwell. I cant tell where it is coming from. Condensate does come out of the drain in the firewal (engine compartment) but will drip into the cab. Ideas? Note: its quite a bit of water after an hour or so of driving. Cant find any cracks etc. :confused: Thanks!Ken

Great minds think alike! My thought, like yours is that it's from the A/C. But if the engine compartment drain works, you'd think it would not back up in the cab... Ideas Guys?Russ

I had the same problem from the day I bought my truck brand new. The stealership actually replaced my carpet twice and told me it was a bad weatherseal on the passenger door. finaly being sick and tired of dealing with them, and being tired of the smell of mildew in my truck I decided to find it. Well I found that where the drain comes through the firewall in the engine compartment it is just a plastic tube about 1 1/2" long. looking at the firewall it had a hole that was about 1/2" larger than the tube comming through it. I could put myfinger through and touch the insulation under the carpet. This is where all the water was comming from. I would guess that there is supposed to be a rubber bushing of some sort but it was not there.I took a washer (I think it was for a shock bushing, the kind that is like a cup with a hole in it) and drilled the center out with a step bit until it would fit over the drain tube. I filled it with silicone gasket sealer and smashed it on so it covered the gap in the friewall. Then I took a peice of rubber hose and a hose clamp and put it on the drain tube and routed it so that the watter would drop behind the passenger a-arm. Problem solved. It's worked fine for about 5 Years.

sometimes it will dribble back along the drain tube to the firewall and seep back pass the foam seal to the carpet inside.. The solution is to extend the tube down and away from the cab... ;)

I am going to try an extension, but I think it might be something else. I have the HD insulation package, so if its coming back in the cab, it is doing so and going under that insulation pad. Thanks for the ideas!
