2009 Lexus ES 350 leak after AC work

#1

118000 miles replaced evaporator core ,part of a/c,now water is coming into passenger side carpets very wet
what would cause this


#2

Somebody may have forgotten to properly reattach the condensation drain hose/tube

Shoddy work practices, it would seem


#3

The heater core probably got messed up when the evaporator was replaced.

And now it’s leaking.

Tester.


#4

Is it water or coolant? That would indicate it is AC condensation (water) or a leak in the heater (coolant)

Coolant smells sweet. Blot some up with a paper towel, does it have any color?

In any case, the carpet will have to be removed and dried or you will have mold growing.
