  1. 2000 Chrysler T&C Interior Water Leak under Right Front Dash

    Dealer cleaned out something once under warranty. Warranty expired several
    months ago. Leak under right front dash, clearly A/C related, has started
    big time when A/C is running. Soaks carpet. How do I fix this and where are
    things located that I have to fix?

    Job probably wasn't done right. What does the receipt say regarding
    what was done?

    Two things:
    1. Clogged drain passages for the A/C, or if "rain" induced, there is a
    drain passage on the right side of the wiper cowl that plugs and causes
    incorrect routing of the rain water or when washing the vehicle, need to
    make sure if it leaks during rains or only when using the A/C.
    2. The seal/gasket between the HVAC housing and the firewall is also a
    well known condition that Chrysler service departments are aware of (
    and very costly repair at that). If the dealership already repaired
    this once, I would contact the service manager about this and seek
    repairs under warranty (depending upon how much out your warranty is).
    They should be able to help you. If not, contact Chrysler customer
    assistance (your dealership can give you the phone number) and seek
    assistance with this well know problem, if it is the firewall/HVAC seal.
    They will not help with just the drain.
    Depending upon the current mileage of your vehicle,history and how many
    months out of warranty service your vehicle is., I have seen many cases
    where Chrysler has assisted with the repairs. Be persistent.
