Water leaking under glove box please help!
I have a 07 cts 3.6 and when I use my ac there is water leaking under the glove box on to the passenger floor. It only happens when the ac is on. I took the plastic piece off under the glove box and couldn't find a leak in anything. Please help!!!!

Re: Water leaking under glove box please help!
I apologize that you have water leaking into your passenger area when the AC is on in your CTS. Have you thought about taking your vehicle to the dealership to see if they would be able to diagnose what is causing this? If you would like any assistance in working with the dealership, please private message me. I would need your name, contact info, VIN, mileage, and dealership you would like to work with. Thank you very much for your time.

You have a clogged vent tube. It stems from the condenser and dives down towards the gas pedal under the carpet exiting above the transmission on drivers side. Either pull back the carpet next to the pedal and pull the hose(water will go everywhere) or try to find it behind the trans and heat shielding under the car. You will need to clean out the blower. The water your getting is inside the fan assembly and could turn into mold if not dried up. Probably about a cups worth. Hope this helps
Generally poking the tube clogging with a coat hanger or long screwdriver gets the clog cleared. I have the exact same car and model and just did this job.
