Toyota Repair/leak inside 2014 corolla


There is a leak on the inside of my Toyota corolla on the passenger side that really stink. It seems to stop as long as i don't run the ac . How and why is this happening and how do I fix it.

hello, it's probably the a/c evaporator draining water inside instead of to the outside through a drain tube, you can pull the carpet back and see where the drain tube goes through the firewall, it may be clogged or the evaporator housing has some debris in it that won't let the water drain out, use a piece of wire to try to open the the drain tube or hose going through the firewall.
