Leaking dash - 110

So the dash is leaking in the 110. Passenger side under speaker, where the top of the kick panel attaches. I assume it is AC/Heaterbox related.

Before it does some massive damage anyone got an idea?

Have you checked your vent seals? Was the truck exposed to rain? I think the majority of leaks come in from the vent seals. I have taken the heater box off the bulkhead and aside from the big square hole where the blower blows in warm air, the only other holes are the 3-4 holes where it attaches to the bulkhead. Does it look like green fluorescent radiator fluid? That may be your heater element leaking. I don't have an AC so can't comment on that.

no vents in the 110. bulkhead is solid. I assume it is coming from the heater box

Maybe wrap/tape up the box in plastic, then give it a good hosing down to verify the leak is really coming from there? I'm guessing there are a number of places i could be leaking in at still.

There's also a hole on the other side for the steering column. I am not sure about the NAS but my ROW bulkhead is ambidextrous. It has cutouts on the passenger side for the brake/clutch/accelerator boxes. It is simply covered with a blanking plate on the engine bay side.

Right so I'm suggesting you translate that feeling into fact. Tape it up above the heater box and see.

Aah, I was forgetting where you live. Most of us live places where it rains and rains regularly.

Your problem must be a/c condensation (inside) then. Locate the drain tube and make sure it's clear. I can't help you identify it other than it should be near the bottom of the box and probably runs out the firewall into the engine bay.

My 110 leaked in the same spot and it was actually coming in along the door seal/post. I would check there as well. I think that's more likely than the heater.

Except he's claiming it's not due to rain and is too stubborn to just dry spray a hose on it and observe. So hard to tell what he's seeing and if this is truly not related to moisture outside the vehicle, what other sources of moisture are there inside other than condensation off the A/C?

What about the winshield washer? Plastic tube cracked? Pump shorting out and running?--should eventually run out of fluid though.
