Whenever I turn my fan on, it is obvious that the fan blades are hitting something. It sounds like they are hitting water. Also, whenever I turn left, I can hear what sounds like a bunch of water rushing behind/under the dash on the passenger's side. I also have wet carpet on front passenger floor mat that never seems to go away.
It would appear to me that there is water accumulating and I'm guessing that there is a nipple or hose somewhere on the firewall that is supposed to allow the condensation to drain.
Does anyone have an answer for me? Do my assumptions seem appropriate, or is there another place that water could be accumulating, and if so, where would it be coming from and how do I get rid of it.
Also, this sound of water rushing when I turn left is only heard when the heat or air conditioning is turned on and the fan is running.
Thanks,

Has anyone out there fixed this problem?
My son's 02 SLE has the same problem. When you use the A/C you can see water dripping on the passenger floor board. If anybody knows where to start looking into this, that would be great.

Thanks

get under the car with ac running - you will see where the drain is. get a long wire( coathanger) and feed it into the drain to move blockage.

keep putting the hanger in there and more water will drain out. I just do this instead of taking apart the lower dash.
