You are watching: Honda accord leaking water passenger side


I"ve noticed on rainy days there is a leak causing the passenger floor to get wet. It causes a funky smell in the car. Any idea where the leak is coming from and the fix? Thanks

Likely the sunroof drain. This problem plagued the 6th gens. Some guy on here had a write up but I think he was banned so his posts may not be around anymore.
If you have a sun roof, open it up then pour some water into the drain holes. Watch if it comes out onto the ground.
Door seal (gasket) maybe. Thats quite a lot of water, the floor is the lowest point, you will have to start investigating. On my 04 found out I was missing some clips on the rubber roof strips.

I had the same problem on my 03" for a while. Turns out that the plastic liner behind the door panel had a spot that wasn"t sealed very well. Remove your door panel and you will see a plastic sheet which covers all of the openings in the door. This plastic sheet has a seal all the way around it to prevent water from passing through it. Most of the time if anything is done inside the door (audio upgrade, repair to components, etc.) the technician will simply pull this liner off at the seal. Sometimes this damages the seal. Look for any area along the bottom that may not be sealed well. You can simply add more sealant like Liquid Nails to the area of issue.

Here is a DIY for removing the drivers side. Will be the same for the passenger. However, do not remove the switches to unplug them in post #3 & #4. Unplug them from behind when you get the panel off. Much easier. Post #7 shows you a perfect picture of the liner I"m talking about. Check the seal for it very carefully. You may even want someone to spray your car with a hose while sitting inside to see where it may be leaking.http://www.tennis2007.org/forums/39-diy/27978-diy-front-door-panel-removal-pics-7th-gen-sedan.html

Passenger side issues always make me think of the AC condensate drain. It could be the drain is clogged or the tube is missing or damaged. The water that gets in the ventilation system drains out through the condensate drain.

+1 on the a/c drain. Also maybe the seal around the windshield.http://www.tennis2007.org/forums/15-7th-generation/32646-c-condensation-drains-into-cabin.html

I think this is it. I also hear a sloshing sound when I turn. So this might be a dumb question, but how do I pull the carpet back?
There"s a few hooks and such holding it down. To get to them, you"ll need to remove trim parts.First though, put the car up on ramps and find the drain. It"s kinda under the passenger"s feet, towards the middle of the car. Run a 2 foot length of weed whacker line up that drain, something stiff yet flexible. Maybe you"ll get a face full of water, if so that"s a good thing - in this case anyhow.

Have you had your windshield replaced at anytime? It could be the base of the windshield leaking down the firewall.
