#1: Re: Damp Carpet in 2006 Exedition

Posted on 2006-07-10 20:51:57 by hoghunte

Thought about that since the exhaust is under the passenger floorboard.
The problem is the dampness continues up behind the a/c ductwork on the
firewall. The other carpeted areas are dry under the mats. This even
happens when the passenger mat is not down.

&gt; &gt; Anyone noticed the passenger side carpet getting damp from A/C
&gt; &gt; condensation? I know it is condensation because we have not had rain
&gt; &gt; in 12 weeks. When I pull the carpet back there are several teaspoon
&gt; &gt; sized water pockets along with damp carpet and insulation. Even the
&gt; &gt; insulation at the firewall is damp. The bottom of the air box sweats
&gt; &gt; but I have not noticed it dripping on the carpet when I put newspaper
&gt; &gt; down (i'm sure my wie would have complained of wet feet). I pulled the
&gt; &gt; carpet back and ran the a/c for an hour headed to work. I noticed when
&gt; &gt; I parked I did not get the condensation dripping on the ground as my
&gt; &gt; other cars do. Anyone know where the drain tube is? It might be plugged
&gt; &gt; and backing up into the car.
