I am looking for a helpful and experienced soul for assistance tracking down my water leak problem.
I drove several hours during a clear, sunny day a few days ago, with the AC running in my 2001 Toyota Camry CE. The driver's side floorboard was soaked by the end of the trip.
I didn't even notice it was happening until I looked down and saw it. I didn't hear water, and I didn't feel any drips on my feet (that is not until I started imagining them after I knew the water was there).
I am certain the leak is from the AC and not a heater coil, sun roof, windshield leak, etc. etc., because I can definitively rule out all other possibilities. What I can't figure out is precisely where the water is coming from. I suspect it is somewhere near the gas pedal, but short of running the car for hours in my carport with the AC on, I seem unable to reproduce the problem. Meanwhile, the mildew smell is beginning to get to me.
Has anyone had this happen in a Camry before? Can you tell me where to look? I just spent 45 minutes upside down with the AC running and a flashlight in my hand, but of course everything but the floorboard was bone dry. I couldn't find a drip anywhere under the dash behind the steering wheel. Maybe I didn't let it run long enough, or maybe I was looking in the wrong place, I'm not sure. I need suggestions, please!
