Av got a Nissan Navara 2009 that suddenly the carpet is wet

Customer Question

Av got a Nissan Navara 2009 that suddenly the carpet is wet on the rear back passenger seat. I want to remove the carpet and check if there is a leak or a pipe that is leaking
JA: How old are the hoses? And what driving conditions do you most often encounter?
Customer: Its normal driving conditions.. just started recently when i had to use the AC for the first time to defrost the windscreen while it was raining. I have never changed the hoses
JA: Are you fixing your Navara yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Am still researching on what the problem could be sort of like a diagnosis. Depending on the fault i will then either fix it or send to a mech
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Nothing more..

Hi im kevin does it only get wet when ac is on ?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I noticed that only when AC is on. When its off AC it get a little dry. I have not gotten it completely dry as the leak was quite extensive and its still raining so i get to use AC to defrost the windshield. I stumbled across suggestions that it could be the AC and thats when i realised i had actually used the AC
Expert:  Kevin replied 7 months ago.

Ok there is a drain for the ac that can come off or block up .if you look in the passenger footwell nd the lower part of centre console there will be a pipe that exits through the bottom of the car

Though its only the back section that gets wet. The front seat passenger side carpet is dry. Could this pipe be extending to the rear cab? its a double cab pickup
Expert:  Kevin replied 7 months ago.

Unlikely i have nothing listed for water in rear il opt out see if another tech has any ideas

the car has a sunroof

I would check the sunroof drain tubes they could be clogged or disconnected causing your problem, I can send you the repair procedure from the service manual if you want.
