2007 JK leaking water from dash

Water only leaks when the AC is on. I figure it's just condensation but leaking on the floor?!?! I tried searching but only got leaks from rain. Any help? Thanks in advance

Water from evaporator. Nothing to worry about.

Just be sure to top off your dashboard fluid, and check the blinker fluid level while you're at it.

Hahaha thanks for the laugh!! So I was just wondering if there's a drain that came loose or broke? My wife has expensive shoes and never wants to ride in my truck

I misread the post. Leaking inside the Jeep and not the garage floor. Must be a disconnected drain line or it's plugged up.

What he said. Check underneath the Jeep, approximately where the firewall is. Should be a tube leading down, that is the drain tube. Easy to clog, especially if you have been in mud recently. Which reminds me, I'd better check mine before the wifey gets wet shoes.

2007 jk housing - hvac

Also - this is long and involved, (from the 2007 JK service manual) but it might give you an idea of something to look for - just ignore it if it's too much...

HOUSING-HVAC

NOTE: If the A/C evaporator is being replaced, add 50 milliliters (1.7 fluid ounces) of refrigerant oil to the refrigerant system. Use only refrigerant oil of the type recommended for the A/C compressor in the vehicle.

NOTE: Make sure that the evaporator drain within the HVAC housing is clean and unrestricted and that the insulator is properly positioned.

NOTE: LHD model with A/C shown in illustrations. RHD and heater-only models similar.

SEE PICTURE 1:
1. Install the two halves of the HVAC housing (4 and 5) together and engage the eight plastic retaining tabs (4). Make sure the retaining tabs are fully engaged.
2. Install the ten screws (2) and two metal clips (1) that secure the two halves of the HVAC housing together. Tighten the screws to 1.2 Nm (10 in lbs.). Make sure the metal clips are fully engaged to the housing halves.

SEE PICTURE 2:
NOTE: If the foam seal for the condensate drain is deformed or damaged, it must be replaced.
3. If removed, install the foam seal (1) around the condensate drain located on bottom of the HVAC housing (2).

SEE PICTURE 3:
NOTE: If the foam insulator for the evaporator is deformed or damaged, it must be replaced.
4. Install the A/C evaporator (1) into the HVAC housing (3). Make sure that the evaporator drain within the HVAC housing is clean and unrestricted and that the insulator (2) around the A/C evaporator is properly positioned.

SEE PICTURE 4:
5. Install the flange (3) onto the top of the HVAC housing (4).
6. Install the four screws (1) that secure the flange to the HVAC housing. Tighten the screws to 1.2 Nm (10 in lbs.).

NOTE: If the foam seal for the flange is deformed or damaged, it must be replaced.
7. Install the foam seal (2) onto the flange.
8. Install the A/C expansion valve onto the A/C evaporator (Refer to 24 - Heating and Air Conditioning/Plumbing/VALVE, A/C Expansion - Installation) .

SEE PICTURE 5:
9. Install the evaporator temperature sensor (1) into the driver side of the HVAC housing (2). Make sure the retaining tabs (3) are fully engaged to the housing.

SEE PICTURE 6:
10. Position the blower motor (2) into the bottom of the HVAC housing (3).
11. Install the three screws (1) that secure the blower motor to the HVAC housing. Tighten the screws to 1.2 Nm (10 in. lbs.).
12. Position the blower motor resistor (5) into the HVAC housing.
13. Install the two screws (4) that secure the blower motor resistor to the HVAC housing. Tighten the screws to 1.2 Nm (10 in. lbs.).

SEE PICTURE 7:
14. Install the air inlet housing (2) onto the HVAC housing (1) (Refer to 24 - Heating and Air Conditioning/Distribution/HOUSING, HVAC - Installation) .
15. Install the air distribution housing (3) onto the HVAC housing (Refer to 24 - Heating and Air Conditioning/Distribution/HOUSING, HVAC - Installation) .

NOTE: If the heater core is being replaced, flush the cooling system (Refer to 07 - Cooling - Standard Procedure) .
16. Install the HVAC housing assembly (Refer to 24 - Heating and Air Conditioning/Distribution/HOUSING, HVAC - Installation) .
