      Because its summer, and I already saw 4 posts on other boards;


      Find the flap, pull back on "U" shaped flap. ON THE FIRE WALL!
      Pop up rubber flapper underneath,
      If water comes out, great you just fixed it. If not, take a pipe cleaner and run it in there to get the junk out.
      Some of us just take the rubber flap out.
      This will fix the water leak on the passenger side floor.

      I drove 20 hours to Disney World and back last year having no idea why my passengers side was literally flooding. You sould have seen how much water came out of my car when I finally figured out how to fix it.

    16. 07-14-2006 07:10 PM #16
      Mine started dripping on the passenger side and then also on the driver side a while ago. Then it stopped dripping but every time I turned I could hear the water in there sloshing around. Today I went to flip the little flap back on the firewall and it seemed as if the insulation stuff did not want to budge. Seemed like it was connected at the bottom of the U but I ripped it and pulled the rubber back and about a gallon of water came out. So it wasn't plugged in the traditional way it was the actual insulation part, which I thought was kinda weird. Do most people rip that little piece of insulation off of the firewall? I wonder if I should rip that little rubber thingy off?
