  • 2013 Ford Focus

    Good afternoon, last night I found my floorboard wet under the front passenger seat. It seems to be coming from the area where the air vent is under the seat. I removed the cover and soaked the water with a towel. I thought it could be a possible water bottle spill, or maybe a window left cracked in the rain. Well, this morning is super sunshiny. I drove the car for a bit this morning and the water is puddling again there. The front floorboard is not wet, just the back. Any ideas is what it could be? I went to the dealership ringtones. He said they are backed up currently, but he has never had a focus come in with an ac leak. He suggested it may be a spill it rain leak. Since it is currently puddled again, and the sun is shining, I know there is something else going on. Please help.

    A/C - WATER LEAK ONTO PASSENGER FRONT FLOOR
    TSB 13-12-6

    11/20/13

    WATER LEAK - FRONT PASSENGER SIDE FLOOR FROM CLIMATE
    CONTROL HOUSING - BUILT ON OR BEFORE 11/12/2012

    FORD:
    2012-2013 Focus
    ISSUE
    Some 2012-2013 Focus vehicles built on or before 11/12/2012 may exhibit wet carpet on the passenger side front foot well. This is likely due to leaking climate control condensate.
    ACTION
    Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition.
    SERVICE PROCEDURE

    1. Start the engine and operate air conditioning in the fresh air mode, temperature control on full cold and the fan speed control on high. Allow the vehicle to operate in this manner for a period of time long enough for condensation to develop, considering ambient weather conditions.
    2. Check the lower section of the heater core and evaporator core housing inside the vehicle for damage.
    3. Is the heater core and evaporator core housing damaged?
    a. Yes - this procedure does not apply. Refer to WSM, Section 412-00 for normal diagnosis.
    b. No - proceed to Step 4.
    4. Check if the heater core and evaporator core housing drain tube is present and fully seated in position.
    5. Is the heater core and evaporator core housing drain tube present and fully seated in position and does condensate flow freely from the drain tube?
    a. Yes - proceed to Step 6.
    b. No - this procedure does not apply. Refer to WSM, Section 412-00 for normal diagnosis.

    6. Remove the five (5) T20 Torx screws to evaporator core access cover. (Figure 1)


    7. Place the rope seal across the bottom of the evaporator core access cover groove and starting in the middle push rope seal into the groove. (Figure 2)
    a. Stretching the rope seal may result in a water and/or air leak.
    8. Wrap the rope seal around the corners and continue working into the groove.
    9. Install the evaporator core access cover.

      There is a certain advantage to actually being there to see what the conditions are and trying to diagnose from a distance is not always effective. Sure, we would like to know what you find. Your cause and solution may help someone else that does not yet know they have that problem.

        It would have been a lot more easy to diagnose the problem when we are near it and can do the close inspection. We would like to know what worked for you ? Your solution may help many others out here facing the same issue.

          Does the engine rev or not? If the engine is showing no response then it is definitely an issue with the drive which may be a loss of hydraulic fluid or choked fuel line may be. If the engine does rev then the problem can be more severe. Better get it checked soon from some good serviceman

            Definitely, when last that happened with my car it is the AC leak. So check out for that too. if it persists kindly seek professional help before it gets out of hand.
