Default Water dripping passenger side under dash

Have a 03 Element. Seems to be alot of water dripping onto the floor mat on the passenger side under the dash. Anyone know what to do?

Second. I bought the 03 Element used. Previous owner took out the original Honda radio. This is the basic Element, std 2 wheel drive. I want to put an original radio back in. Can I buy one on ebay? And will it work? Someone told me that you cant put a Honda radio back in, unless it is the original one that came with the Element when new. Hmm....

No idea about the leak. Was the windshield replaced?

Unless they modified the original harness you can put the OEM head unit back in pretty easy. Question is, why in the world do you want to??? OEM HU is crap.

I agree. Why in the world would you want the stock head unit back in, unless you keep it turned off?

Welcome to HondaSUV.com.
There were quite a few window replacements done on the Es but I'm not sure what years. I'd have thought by '03 it was fixed but you never know.
You might run the AC and see if the condensation from the lines is dripping like it's supposed to underneath the E onto the ground which will eliminate a clogged drain line being the culprit.
Post some pics of your E out in the countryside for us sometime.

Baloney. You may need the radio code, but it would work. Well, it would work as well as stock unit worked to begin with, anyway...
Do not buy a stock unit without the code.

This sounds like something a salesman would use on an unsuspecting woman so he could sell her a more expensive unit. No offense, ladies. We all know about how you are sometime taken advantage of with cars by unscrupulous ..........

The water leak is probably the evap system for the A/C as previously stated.

As for the radio, you will need the unlock code for the factory one you will be getting. Just make sure the seller provides that for you.

You might want to check if the drain hose from the roof that runs down the A pillar is open, intact, and sticking out the bottom of the body.

Make sure the liquid is water and not coolant from the heater core first.
