As the title says, I have a 2003 BA XT, in the last few days I have noticed the passenger front floor is all wet, water coming from under the dash.
I have checked behind the glovebox, it seems like it is coming from the fan blower motor???? or running down from behind the heater box and dripping off the fan motor.
I thought it might be the heater core leaking, but the heater hoses enter the firewall on the drivers side, and the leak is on the passenger side.
Also when turning corners sharply I hear a sloshing sound coming from the passenger side of the dash.
Any ideas would be great?

Check to see that your AC drain hose is clear.

Yeah with SWC...

There is drain sticking out somewhere for the condensation which forms on the condenser to run back out of the heaterbox... On E series it was on the passenger side behind the intake manifold... No idea where you'll find it on a BA but...

Jam some welding wire up and remove the spider that possibly made a home and sealed the drain off for you... Best make sure you're not under the drain when you do this if it is indeed full of water...

Cheers,
Tim

I think the drain on the of BAs is above the transmission somewhere. May be hard to get to.

Down the bottom in smell from HVAC... No photos to show exactly where but... Must drop out on top of the bell housing...

Cheers,

Yup. It's in the tunnel. Quickly stuck my head under my BA that is missing it's engine and box. This pic is from the steering rack looking towards the back of the car...

It'd be (in this case) the yellowish tube. Enjoy.
